Yoga and Anatomy | Ashram de Yoga Sivananda | Yoga | France

Practicing yoga helps the body to maintain its complex balance, which boosts the capacity for self-healing. Asanas promote health by increasing the range of motion in the joints, keeping the body mobile. Asanas focus on strengthening and stretching the key muscles. This will help to gradually improve faulty alignment, particularly in the lower and upper back.

Workshop Topics:

  • Understanding anatomy related to yoga
  • Postural types: identify your alignment and how to improve your posture
  • Muscle stiffness and flexibility, and its impact on asanas
  • Anatomy trains and myofascial meridians; how to use them in the practice of asanas
  • Recognising and improving misalignments in your practice
  • Biomechanical basics of lower back pain.


12 – 2pm: lecture/workshop
4 – 5:45pm: practical Yoga class

The rest of the day follows the yoga vacation daily schedule.

With certificate of participation
