The human body is a masterpiece of engineering, an absolute wonder of nature and the one true place we inhabit 24 hours a day. This fascinating ON DEMAND course gives essential insight into both Anatomy and Physiology and its application to Yoga. Not only do you learn about the body but essential elements to yogic practice such as the anatomy of breath and bandhas are including on this training.

Short quizzes after each “chapter” also reinforce and consolidate the teachings,
