Regular Western anatomy makes no sense for yoga – Anatomy Trains is a practical and enlightening map of the connected sheets of fascia and muscle engaged by the yoga asanas. Even if you didn’t like anatomy, you will definitely value Anatomy Trains to help you see your students’ problems more clearly, as well as to deepen your own practice.

We also have a number of On Demand Learning courses geared towards movement professionals available on our website here.
