This intensive yoga teacher training begins with a deeper look at the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder as a basis for learning to support the individual. We will examine common injuries and common dysfunction alongside an exploration of how to support these issues. We will also examine range of motion and how to evaluate this on your students while taking into consideration the importance of individual variances. You will learn how to work with and troubleshoot a variety of techniques in your own practice as well as with your students.
With this information in mind, we will explore approaches to work with and support the individual in front of you. Review sessions along the way will help you integrate the information, so you leave with a deeper understanding that you can immediately apply to your teaching and personal practice by more thoroughly understanding the function of the shoulder.
Here are the main topics that we will cover during the Shoulder: Anatomy, Dysfunction, and Application Yoga Teacher Training:
- How to work with shoulder pain, injuries, and other ailments
- Shoulder structure and function
- Shoulder anatomy, biomechanics, and movement essentials
- Yoga applications and therapeutics
- Prevention, durability, and resistance training
… and much more!
