Today I share 7 of the most helpful things I have learned about anatomy, and many of them I didn't learn until years into my practice. This is all infused into my March 2020 Online Yoga Teacher Training and Mentorship at http://www.quietmind.yoga/ytt but some of the best ideas are right here in this episode. Hopefully this podcast can save you years of confusion and even harm to your body. The 7 things I share about are:
The 5 movements of the spine; Every anatomic cue comes from understanding anatomic neutral; Every muscle in the body can do two things; Think about all areas of the body 3 dimensionally: front, back and sides; The 6 movements of the scapula; Joints are responsible for 47% of flexibility, muscles and fascia are 41%; Learn anatomy from PTs, CPTs, doctors and other anatomy specialists
