You can participate in each module without completing the whole training. Students who wish to gain deeper knowledge about a particular subject rather than wanting to teach are welcome.
This module, Anatomy, Adjusting & Asana with Monica, will take place on the 16th – 22nd September 2021 in Greece at Limeni Village Hotel. Limeni is about 3hours and 15 min from Athens by car or 1hour and 15min from Kalamata airport. We suggest you fly directly into Kalamata.
Learn about the miraculous structure and function of your body! Studying the qualities of joints, connective tissues and muscles give you a holistic understanding of the effects of asana on the body. This will enable you to teach yoga postures in an safe and helpful way to different body types and to work intelligently with your own and other students’ capabilities, limitations and full potential.
We will explore the anatomy of the postures within the major asana groups including back bends, forward bends, hip opening postures and arm balances. Through a deeper understanding of our body’s structure and movement patterns, we learn how to bring ease and grace to our practice and to teach with a quality of refinement that supports health and longevity.
Learning Yoga Anatomy from a yogi with 40 years of practice experience who is a Doctor of Chiropractic and a registered Yoga Therapist makes this an engaging and powerfully relevant topic!

Thank you so much Monica for your impassioned and joyful teachings. I so thoroughly enjoyed your yoga, your teachings, your chanting, your guided meditations. The whole course was very inspiring. When I was teaching this morning I was dipping into my new tool box and body of knowledge and applying it to my class. It was all very well received and a few light bulbs went on for all of us. It was great to apply and practice on the students.
