Throughout this functional anatomy training, participants will experience the therapeutic power of yoga as Sherry leads them through the structural forms of the moving body and explains how correcting common imbalances can prevent injuries and pain.
The course is geared toward yoga therapists and teachers from all traditions. In addition, experienced yoga students seeking to deepen their practice are also invited to take this course. Healthcare professionals with a background in yoga are also welcome. A list of recommended preparatory reading will be supplied at time of registration.
