Essential Yoga Anatomy

The most useful anatomy course you'll ever take
with Jason Crandell Paul B. Roache, M.D.


In this essential yoga anatomy course, alignment-based vinyasa teacher Jason Crandell and orthopedic surgeon Paul B. Roache, MD, have distilled the subject of anatomy into a dynamic, practical course that is directly relevant to yoga practice and teaching. This is not your high school anatomy course filled with rote memorization that you'll soon forget. It won't mire you down in details you don't need. Instead, you'll receive tools and knowledge that will improve your yoga practice and sharpen your yoga teaching skills.


This course is suited for dedicated yoga practitioners and teachers who want to develop fluency with the language of the body, or anyone who uses yoga as a framework for other healing modalities.
