In-Depth Anatomy of Asana 800-Hour Professional Yoga Therapist Program, Module 6

Module 6 is an in-depth study of asana. It focuses on advanced concepts of human motion within the Five-Kosha Yoga therapeutic model.

This course includes a focused study of altered qualities of motion in the presence of common musculoskeletal complaints. Students explore methods for assessing alignment and motion as well as modifications and contraindications for specific conditions. The practice of mudra is used to complement and bring emphasis to the qualities cultivated through the Yoga postures. Restorative Yoga and other gentle practice techniques are presented in the context of their rationale for selection in addressing selected musculoskeletal concerns.

This program may be taken as part of Kripalu’s 1000-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, or as a standalone program.
