Does this sound like you?
You know you should be studying anatomy on a regular basis, but all the books you try to read are confusing, boring, and overwhelming. It's hard to know where to even start!
There are 3 huge mistakes I see when yoga teachers try to learn anatomy:
You jump into learning anatomy at a random place (or the beginning of an anatomy textbook) but after spending hours studying without anything you can actually use in the classroom, you lose all motivation to continue.
You try to cram your brain full of terminology without fully understanding the real world relevance… and none of it sticks.
You feel so intimidated by the idea of learning anatomy, that you keep putting it off as a project for another day... a day which never actually comes.
The truth is that most yoga teachers go about learning anatomy the hard way... but you don't have to!
Are you ready to stop guessing when it comes to anatomy and start guiding your students through their practice with confidence using sound biomechanical principles?
This program will teach you how to:
Adapt any yoga posture for multiple practitioners with different abilities.
Confidently teach your students about their bodies
Take a single sequence and translate it into multiple different classes
Use effective cues that are grounded in biomechanical principles
Anatomy Bites is PERFECT for you if...
- You absolutely glazed over during the anatomy portion of YTT - but now you wish you could go back and take those modules again with actual students in mind.
- You find most anatomy lessons to be overwhelming with details and lacking in practical application.
- You wish you could adapt your sequences on the fly based on the people who actually show up in the room on a given day.
- You want to learn how to read bodies so that you can more skillfully guide your students.
- You wish you had a mentor or guide who will meet you where you are and answer your questions in plain English.
- Vizualizing what is happening deep inside your students bodies as they move
- Easily updating your sequence in real time based on the people who show up for class
- Confidently helping your injured student adapt their practice
- Skillfully cueing your student into a pose that they’ve never done before
Here is what current Anatomy Bites members are saying about the program:
Thank you for making anatomy accessible for newer teachers and actually FUN to learn!
I'm loving this! I took one year of anatomy and got 3/4 of the way through the PTA program, so I know muscles. The way you explain is so refreshing and more cohesive. It all finally makes sense!
