Functional Anatomy Applied to Yoga

with Lucas Benet & Susana García Blanco

MADRID december 2-5

REQUIRED MODULE from the Advanced Teacher Training 300 h



As hatha yoga students, we practice yoga through the vehicle of the body. We seek to expand our understanding of ourselves and connect to the fullness of ourselves by accessing both our strength and our full range of motion. Freedom in this context is then having wise choices available to us both when doing our hatha yoga practice and when moving in everyday life. As yoga teachers, we want to know how to teach asana so that our students can fully enjoy and express themselves in the poses, and in a way that prevents injuries. We also want to be able to support students who come to class with minor injuries so that they can enjoy the poses too.

Main goals:

  • To understand how the body moves and how tis different parts work together in a balanced way through the practice of ASANA
  • To know the functional anatomy applied to movement and to avoid injuries in your body and your students.
  • To integrate the knowledge teaching the main actions for each group of postures to offer to the students a safe and efficient way of practicing.


This course is neither a medical professional training  nor a Yoga Therapy intensive. 

We assume a basic knowledge of Anatomy.
