Anatomy Applied to Asana

Movement brings our structures into being. When we understanding these structures more clearly, we gain the agency to ever-refine our movements. The conversation we call anatomy and kinesiology is vibrant and alive. Learning the relevant language and exploring its inherent questions cultivates our awareness of our inner workings, bringing deeper subtlety in our alignment. Ultimately, the human form is an expression of the supreme intelligence at the heart of the Universe. When we work authentically with our own inner resistances and deep need for stability, we uncover the power of this source within.

Through this training we will better serve each body individually as well as honor the human form through a greater appreciation of all that goes into each asana. Each weekend, the relationships between the bones, joints and muscles will be discussed by region and then embodied through asana-based movement explorations. Open to yoga teachers as well as yoga and movement enthusiasts.


Julia has studied anatomy, kinesiology and physiology in depth for 8 years, studying not only with anatomists, but manual therapists, movement specialists and with the human form itself- having spent over 50 hours in dissection labs. Her cultivated, integrated focus on movement, form and the principles of Anusara yoga have helped her to build a strong private practice. She supports students in the exploration of their optimal range, to uncover the strength and potential of deep alignment no matter their range of movement. She strongly believes that a working awareness of the relationships within the physical body is an invaluable branch of study for yoga teachers and practitioners.

This 30 hour course is a required module for completing an Anusara Yoga 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training, leading to the completion of 500RYT requirements and a step on the path to becoming a Certified Anusara yoga teacher. It is a part of the World Yoga Center 300hr Advanced Teacher Training. More information on the full training can be found here.
