Fluid Anatomy is a 12-hour program designed for 200-hour yoga teacher trainees. During the course of the program, we will focus on basic anatomy and kinesiology (the study of movement). We will delve into the skeletal and muscular system as it relates to the yoga asana practice. This course is accessible to those new to anatomy, a thorough review for those familiar and comprehensive for those looking to apply it to their yoga practice and prevent injury. With fun exercises and group activities, students will become more mindful with their own bodies on the mat and in their daily living.
Fluid Anatomy, led by Alicia Molloy, was developed as part of the Fluid Yoga® training program. Fluid Yoga® is a style of vinyasa yoga built upon the principle that we are fluid by nature. Like water we continually flow under applied stress: smooth, poised and graceful. Our experience in this life is ever evolving, fluid and constantly changing, as is our physical body.
Advanced Fluid Anatomy - Injury Prevention
For yoga teachers, personal trainers, body workers
The physical practice of yoga asana has the potential to heal and prevent injuries. Having an understanding of the joints and myofasical system can aide in having a practice of longevity. Its important as we move into more depth and repetition over the years of practice, that the forces we are putting on our bodies are sustainable. As teachers, we have an opportunity to reduce the potential for injury for our students and the opportunity to change students’ relationship to their yoga asana.
In this three day course with Alicia we’ll explore a deeper understanding of the yoga asana and how to prevent common yoga injury. Learn to optimize alignment and engagement while flowing. Alicia will help to simplify the complexities of the joints including key muscles, cartilage, common injuries and the fascial system and how to keep the body safe and strong for a lifetime of practice. Come prepared to breakdown poses, take a new perspective on the body, and lots of fun!
