Who is This Training For?

Who Is This Training For?

You! If you are interested in yoga and have a desire to understand your body (and that of your students if you are a teacher), you are ready for this training now. This program is great for students of all levels. Students will better understand what happens to their own body as they move through common poses and teachers will improve their ability to observe their students’ alignment and make safe, accurate, and appropriate modifications.

What is This Training? What Is This Training?

This 2-day training qualifies for CEUs for Anatomy & Physiology for the Yoga Alliance. You will receive an illustrated manual and a certificate upon full participation. Dr. Trish Corley combines her knowledge of functional anatomy (from thirteen years as a physiotherapist and five years as a professor of functional anatomy) and her passion of True North Alignment (the alignment principles of Baptiste Yoga) to provide students with practical and fun tools to apply anatomy to their yoga practice and teaching.

The training will consist of interactive lectures with anatomical models, illustrations, videos, and activities. You will have daily yoga practice led by Dr. Trish Corley and supported by a powerful team of highly qualified yoga teachers in order to practically integrate the learnings from the training. 

Key topics covered are:

Align with Basic Terminology: Understand the structures and movement of the major joints in your body; how muscles support your asana practice; and how your body is connected.

What Does It Mean to “Tuck Your Tailbone”?: Explore the functional anatomy of your pelvis and your spine as it relates to asana and bring freedom into your practice as you discover how your tailbone moves.

Explore Your Core and Love Your Spine: Understand the structures of your spine including your neck. Practice techniques to minimize pain and injury in your back and to heal from the inside out.

Fire from Your Bandhas and Your Breath: Access the key structures to obtain (and maintain) bandhas (the energy locks) in your practice and be inspired by the anatomy of your breath.

Your Feet Are Your Foundation: Explore the anatomy of your legs from your hips to your feet. Reveal a new relationship between your feet and the Earth to bring freedom and power into your practice.

The Rhythm of the Shoulder (and Elbows, Wrists, and Hands): Discover what happens when you “wrap” and “slide” your shoulder blades. Align your shoulders to find ease in both standing postures and inversions (i.e. downward facing dog, crow).

Integration: Although we study each body part separately, the body works as a whole. Anatomy Connections offers the opportunity to integrate the anatomy of your body through practical exercises, yoga asana, and Q&A.


Why This Training?

Why This Training?

Your human body is a miracle. By powerfully aligning your physical body throughout your yoga practice you create new possibilities on your mat.

Testimonials for Anatomy Connections: 2 Day Immersion

“Trish was very detailed and concise in her explanation and I have never felt clearer about the jargons in anatomy. If she were to do a level 2 anatomical workshop, I would definitely be keen to further my anatomical knowledge with her. Thank you for everything!”

Angeline Yeo

“This workshop inspired me to explore, in more specific details, each body part affected in an asana. Hence I can translate this in class. I learned more techniques on how to guide students to explore poses in a safer more effective way.”

Rannie Kit Mae Reyes

“I love that we have interactive way of learning. For example we stand up and explore our own body, palpate each other to find where the muscles are. Leader structured the workshop in a systematic and fun way. It makes learning easy!”
