This Level 1 course is foundational. It covers the basics of anatomy in a way that is specifically designed for yoga teachers. You may be wishing to refresh your previous anatomy study or just want to know more about the body and how to prevent injury.

Each section focuses on a different part of the body, discussing bones, joints, ranges of motion, muscles and possible reasons for muscular imbalance, restrictions and pain.

My injury affected the way I taught yoga and did daily tasks

"I started coming to Melbourne Yoga Shala as I had hurt my back and needed to find a way to relieve pain as I am also a yoga teacher. Jean helped me not only learn an entirely new style of practice, with Mysore Ashtanga, but in addition to this there was an immediate reduction in pain after my first time in her Beginners Course. 

Jean took great care to ensure that my practice was pain free and on the right track right from the first interaction. Her depth of knowledge and years of experience meant that I felt reassured, supported and understood at a time when an injury affected the way I taught and did daily tasks. 

I initially thought that an old hamstring injury was the cause of my pain, but Jean showed me that it was referred pain from my back and we could fix it with a change of practice and awareness of my body/posture.

As of today I do not experience pain in my lower back and am able to complete a full practice without fear of reintroducing the injury. Jean is always able to help when it comes to progressions and her thorough explanations enable me to understand my body more and more each time I practice.”
