Functional Anatomy for Anusara Yoga with Jayendra Hanley

January 14, 2023 - February 26, 2023


What are the Anatomy and Kinesiology principles behind the Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment?  In this training, we go in-depth into how and why the Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment™ work, from the perspective of the form and function of the human body.

In this training, we will:

  • Learn all we need to know in order to teach and do a safe, yet powerful asana practice
  • Study how the parts of the body work together in the practice of yoga postures
  • Present the main movements possible in a human body, for example, flexion, extension, twisting, and asymmetrical poses (one leg forward and one back). With each main movement, we’ll discuss and practice these primary teaching skills:
    • Knowledge of the primary and secondary places of movement in these main classes of poses
    • Key observation points and verbal adjustments to get into a safe pose
    • Key actions to teach
    • Main precautions
  • Explain the anatomy behind the main movements of the body and behind the UPAs by focusing on the anatomy of the major joints
  • How to deal with some of the most common conditions we face in our practice

*** A training called “Therapeutic Applications of Anusara Yoga” will follow this one, in January – March 2023.  This course is a prerequisite for that one.

All classes are offered live stream on Zoom

  • Weekend sessions will include breakout rooms for small group discussion, connection, and practice in teaching with the UPAs.
  • All classes will be recorded and available for you to download.
  • Included in the tuition are weekly online asana classes with Jayendra.

  • 11:00 – 2:00 EST, 16:00 – 19:00 Ireland/UK, 17:00 – 20:00 Europe
