Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews
For the anatomy component of your training, we're partnering with world-renowned Yoga Educators & best-selling authors of Yoga Anatomy, Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews. Using what they've learned in their combined 50-years of experience training yoga teachers, they've created a unique online + in-person course that's exclusively available through Teacher Training programs: YogaAnatomy.net Fundamentals. This is not your average anatomy training. Don't expect hours of "which bone is which" that make you feel like you're back in high school science classes... Leslie & Amy spend time on the things that matter most to a yoga teacher and skip the memorization.
They'll help you establish a broad base of knowledge by sharing examples, analogies, stories, and guiding you through physical experiments that make the material helpful and applicable to teaching yoga to students. Leslie & Amy will also share their own favorite teaching strategies like... * How to make poses accessible for any student * What to do when students have an injury and still want to practice * Simple cues that help every student find success on the mat Leslie and Amy's unique blend of humor and expertise make them the absolute best team to guide you through this phase of your journey.
