Body of Knowledge™ – Muscle Function in Movement: Key Muscles of the Upper Extremities
Foundational Anatomy and Biomechanics for the Moving Body
Module 5 of 6 | Saturday | $495 Full Series, $95 Single |
Through movement practice targeting the shoulders and arms, explore the 3 different ways muscles contract. Discuss and think critically about yoga asana, a movement format that predominately asks the body to push rather than pull against its own weight, or external loads. Reconceptualize the asana practice in order to ensure it meets the body’s needs for more diverse loading.
The following are modules 1-6 of the first series:
- Explore anatomical structures and biomechanical concepts through practice and hands-on engagement.
- Develop scientifically-informed critical thinking skills to help you clarify movement cues.
- Position yourself as an anatomically and biomechanically-informed teacher to attract a more diverse student base.
