Anusara 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training Module 4: Functional Anatomy as it Applies to Yoga
September 25, 2021 - October 24, 2021
“Through this training we will better serve each body individually as well as honor all that goes into each asana. Each weekend, the relationships between the bones, joints and muscles will be discussed by region and then embodied through asana-based movement explorations.”
— Julia Pearring
