Anatomy in action to care for the body – an individual’s perspective

While most yoga classes help with a lot of general body ailments, the focus of a general class is usually to teach a specific range of postures. When a student seeks yoga specifically to manage an ailment, that individual’s body determines what postures are taught and how they are taught.

So how do we assess and cater for students with specific requirements in our class?

This course module will explore integrating assessment and approaches to teaching that cater to the needs of the individual.

Course learning objectives and outcomes

At the end of this module you will be able to:

  • Identify postural or technical tendencies in the hips, shoulders and spine that may contribute to pain or injuries
  • Be aware of an array of practices that address such assessment findings
  • Plan classes to cater for the needs of varied bodies in multi-ability classes
