This is an experiential, engaging breakdown of the human body in all of its unique glory and bio-individuality. You will learn how to directly apply this essential information to your practice and bring elements of understanding, empathy, and compassion into your teaching - allowing each person to drop into an embodied experience in a safe and informed way. You will gain in-depth knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, functional and safe movement, as well as how to safely cue and sequence an embodied experience.
Functional Anatomy takes into account that every single body is different and unique; it moves in its own way because bones are shaped differently and joints articulate uniquely, what works for one body may not work for another. By studying bio-individuality and further understanding the various levels and layers of anatomy you can help yourself and others have a safer and more embodied experience.
This course provides you with:
A deep understanding of muscles, bones, joints and how they are manipulated in yoga.

Equity in Investment - Choosing your tier
We are committed to offering trainings that are of the highest quality, affordable and accessible while striving to keep equity and mutual exchange at the soul of how we serve.
We recognize that we live in systems of inequity and we strive to find ways of finding balance within this. We feel that the deepest engagement and greatest benefit comes when there is a meaningful mutual exchange.
For these reasons, we offer tiered pricing. There is an invitation to reflect on your access to resources and privilege, the value of this work, what you can genuinely afford, and what you might pay for comparable training programs. By committing to what is truly within your means you make it possible for others to show up within theirs and we are all grateful for this.
All prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD)
TIER 1: $525 – For those who are financially well-resourced. Reflects the value of the course in Western economic markets.
TIER 2: $425 – For those on medium incomes and access to financial resources.
TIER 3: $375 – For those on low incomes, caring responsibilities and from marginalized communities.
In addition to our tiered pricing, we also have scholarships available for: 1) People from non-western / low-economy countries and financially marginalized communities, who otherwise would be unable to access a training such as this. 2) People experiencing serious personal / financial hardship. To apply for a scholarship please complete our scholarship application form. Applications close Monday 18th January. Currently, this mentorship is not offered in person and has limited space online. However, if space is full upon registration you will be offered additional date options.
