Anatomy Intensive

Functional Understanding of Asana

with Rich Logan

July 2018 | 1:30pm–5:30pm

This course is designed for teachers with some anatomy experience. The module will place an emphasis on the importance of observing imbalances in student’s structures and leave with a deeper understanding of how the body works. Students will comprehend the relationship of tension in one part of the body to a weakness in another. The final realization being that no part is separate from the whole.

This module has 30 CEC. These CEC may be applied to a 300-hour or 500-hour accreditation through Tejas Yoga.

Please note:

The training will be held Monday through Saturday, 1:30-5:30 p.m. with the exception of an off-site training day at a local cadaver lab (date/time TBA). The students will meet at Tejas and carpool to the lab. There will be a 1 1/2 hour break for lunch and then everyone will reconvene at Tejas at 1:30 pm. Saturday’s hours will be from 1:30-5:30 p.m.
