The word “flexibility” is often associated with yoga. But what does it mean to be flexible? In this four-week online course, Anatomy Trains founder Tom Myers walks you through the latest science on stretching, including the roles that fascia and your nervous system play, as well as common yoga injuries and postural patterns associated with both stiffness and hypermobility. You’ll learn how to work with both in your practice, or with your yoga students. This course fulfills Yoga Alliance’s anatomy requirements.

We all have either experienced injury, instability, or tightness; or we have had students who have come to us for solutions for them. This course will help you understand the basics of stretch—what anatomical systems are in play. But most importantly, body reading and postural clinics within the course will help you start to identify postural patterns in yourself and your students and adjust what you are teaching in ways that will lead to integrated wellness.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

• The anatomy of stretch

• New science on stretch

• The relationship between fascial systems and stretch

• The relationship between your nervous system and stretch

• How to identify postural patterns

• How to apply these principles to asana

Each week you’ll receive:

• Lectures that help you understand anatomical systems in the context of stretch
• Body reading clinics and asana practices that help embody what you’ve learned

• Homework to prepare you for the next week


• A webinar recording in which Tom presents bonus lessons and answers learner questions

• A private Facebook community where you can connect with other course participants and Anatomy Trains instructors
