ANATOMY & MOVEMENT Course for Yoga Teachers: with Gary Carter held in London
with guest teachers & lecturers
Vikki Ayres, Stephen Braybrook, Julian Baker & James Earls
A 10-weekend course starting in November 2019
Structural, Functional, and Experiential Anatomy course for Yoga Teachers (and trainee teachers in the final year of training).
Gary Carter shows how a thorough knowledge of anatomy can help teachers to make intelligent choices about the way they teach their pupils.
His workshops involve the use of props, illustrations, and hands-on work in class to help demonstrate the principles that underlie your movement practice. This course of experiential anatomy will run for ten weekends.
Anatomy Series, London
This 10 weekend course explores the anatomy of movement in relation to practice, movement analysis, 3-D work, and experiential anatomy. It will encourage teachers to ‘see’ their students more clearly, thus helping with rehabilitative issues. The course aims to help teachers take a flexible, intelligent approach to their specific field with individual students.

Students will deepen they’re knowledge of Structural and Integrated Anatomy. This course will involve the concept of hands on touch skills, fascial touch, feel for fascial elasticity, experiential connected anatomy in relation to posture and function for movement in all modalities.
On completion of this module the student will be able to:
∗ Understand the complexity of the human structure, how it evolved, and postural tendencies, and learn to see patterns and structure.
∗ Understand how the connective tissue system affects the body in general and specific movement, learning to body read in movement and stasis.
∗ Relate physical aspects of the body to the improvement of posture and movement quality
∗ Appreciate how body balance, from a structural viewpoint, is achieved
∗ Appreciate the inter-relationship between each system/network of the body
The module will enable the successful student to:
∗ Explain and demonstrate their understanding of the physical structure of the body.
∗ Recognise postural deviations, restriction and imbalance of connective tissues within differing bodies.
∗ Analyse movement through a scientific base, which in turn can improve movement function.
This course will work in a developmental manner covering the following subject areas:
∗ Evolution of the human body; detailed understanding of muscle, structure, function and action, and integrated connectedness, exploring our neurological relationship to gravity and how this relates to movement and posture.
∗ The art of creating control, balance and freedom of movement.
∗ In depth exploration of the connective system of the body
∗ Learning to see and recognize imbalances and balance of the myofascia including structural and fascial
