Anatomy of Yoga

Anatomy for Yoga & Postural alignment Training
Compression and tension concept
Your Yoga Your Body

This training was designed by Sandrine in 2011

for yoga teachers and practitioners, and also for people from other disciplines.


This training was designed to understand why sometimes we cannot go further into a pose, into a movement.

What stops me? That is the question and the main topic of this valuable workshop. For those who don't have a "ballet dancer or contortionist body", this workshop/training is for you!

If you want to understand the different body types and the art of teaching safely so your students are left satisfied and not feeling "frustrated" by some postures that look impossible to do, this training is perfect for you!

Training content:

  • In-depth anatomy of the skeletal

    • spine​

    • hips

    • shoulders

    • the main bones (different shapes in each person).

  • Muscles, forms of contraction

  • Planes of movement

  • The 8 major joints and their compression point

  • Compression and tension concept - What stops me? Your body your yoga

  • Range of motion - ROM

  • Asana modifications to go over your body restrictions and point of compression

  • Students practice: observation and comparison of each other body structure and point of compression, hands-on adjustment, and asana modification with blocks, straps, blankets, walls, and chairs.
