Embodied Anatomy for Yoga Teachers

with Diana Thielen, movement educator & yoga teacher

 Saturday and Sunday, July 27th and 28th 2019

 from 9:00 till 17:30 with an hour lunch break

at the Zen Yoga by Dynamic Mindfulness, Tempelhofer Ufer 36, 10963 Berlin-Kreuzberg

Guest Course Fee: 220 €

This weekend training offers a deep immersion into the anatomy and biomechanics of the asana practice.

We will explore movement patterns in our own bodies and through partner work. Our findings are supported by scientific data gathered and evaluated by the Axis Syllabus.

The provided information can be experienced directly with one’s own body. This weekend supports the students in their own research and application of the previously discussed principles.

This further education offers a comprehensive study and is aimed for yoga teachers and practitioners, but it is suitable for diverse movement practitioners and teachers, as well.

You will learn to differentiate between the architectures of the most performed asanas and to modify the practice for all body types to allow for diversity in teaching.
