Description

‘Anatomy & Physiology of Yoga’ is a practical course, taught in a similar fashion to a yoga workshop. It provides yoga teachers and students with the knowledge and skills to understand how the body works while it practises the asanas (poses and postures), vinyasas (dynamic exercises that combine movement with breath) and pranayamas (breath-control exercises) of hatha yoga.

I got a great deal out of the course. It's a funny thing because Simon starts and ends the course saying 'breathe less, bend less, move slower' and then in between there's these incredible 12 topics packed with SO MUCH knowledge and experience. A great deal of what he demonstrates is well beyond my current physical capacity, so the wisdom for me was not in trying to copy what he was doing, but in finding my own body's version of what he was explaining or demonstrating. It's so easy to go too far. In terms of time, it took me much more than 120 hours. Having said that, I watched each lecture numerous times and deliberately took my time so that I could steadily apply my learning to my practice over time. Probably the key learning for me was developing an anatomical and physiological perspective for what I was already experiencing intuitively in my body. I think this broadens my base for understanding other peoples' bodies better.  And of course, it deepens my awareness of my own practice. I also noticed that with so much new information going through my brain, I was getting a bit cerebral about my practice. For example, I would be thinking about the protraction/depression/rotation of my shoulders rather than just feeling them and my breath and working from there. I guess this is part of the ongoing challenge with my practice - to embrace new knowledge but to always let my practice grow from within. In summary, I would absolutely recommend the course. And I have, to those who have asked me about it. I very much enjoyed Bianca's involvement. Since I have this opportunity, I want to say how much I enjoyed your lecture on the female reproductive system. You bring a different energy and with all respect to Simon (who did an incredible job), I think the course as a whole could be strengthened with more of you on screen. So thank you very much to you all. The course interface was user-friendly and the content itself was a beautiful and deepening complement to the current yoga apprenticeship I am undertaking. With gratitude.

This is a very thorough and in-depth course, joining both Western and Eastern sciences. The knowledge and experience of the teachers is nearly unparalleled. Highly recommended for yoga practitioners, especially those that are teaching.
