Your Anatomy Teacher

Anatomy with David includes the study of bones, muscles, joints, breathing, asana, strength & flexibility.  Happily they are delivered with yoga as their focus.

Being a yoga instructor does not mean you need clinical anatomy & physiology training, our students don't require that of us. The study of anatomy is lifelong, we learn more as we teach & see bodies moving in our classes.

You will study modules on connective tissue, the muscular system, the skeletal system, the nervous system, the digestive system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system & breathing. You will also look at the foot, ankle, knee & hip joints, the psoas, pelvis & SI joint, the spine, shoulder girdle, hand wrist & elbow joints.
