Neuro-biomechanics for Yoga
23rd, 24th + 25th October
£500


This anatomy course is different in that it’s an opportunity to learn current, evidence-based, practical information, in a fun and engaging way.

Course Content

This three day course, running 9am-5pm each day, is a deep dive of neuro-anatomy, along with the practical application of this information on and off the mat. Expect to leave with your mind blown and a tool kit FULL of tools that can wildly shift the needle for your clients. You will also have access to the recordings for two weeks after the training. We will explore:

  • Pain neuroscience
  • The visual and vestibular system’s anatomy; tools to assess and manage these systems
  • The brain’s fuel consumption and how this impacts our practice, performance and pain
  • Tools beyond just utilising the breath that shift sympathetic tone
  • How use critical thinking to assess a student’s needs and adapt the practice accordingly
  • Applied anatomy, biomechanics and neuromechanics
  • Injury rehabilitation and prevention
  • Sequencing and cueing with neuro-biomechanical foundations
  • Neural Flossing for higher performance

 

This course is a supportive environment where there is no wrong question. Whilst the content is deep and will feel intense, the course is designed to be practical, fun and engaging. We will ensure this via:

  • regular breaks
  • visual learning aids that you can keep
  • group work
  • practical sessions alongside the lectures
  • Q&A’s
  • relevant resource videos
  • games
  • teaching practice

Learning Outcomes

We will cover:

  • Neuro anatomy
  • Applied anatomy
  • Neuromechanical drills to advance physical ability and manage pain
  • Assessing a client and how to use critical thinking to support their needs
  • Sensory mismatch and the neural hierarchy
  • The nervous systems structure and how to address it holistically
  • The brain’s three step process and how this influences pain and performance
  • How to dose drills appropriately for the individual’s needs
  • The 12 cranial nerves and how they can help adapt sympathetic tone and global stability
  • The visual and vestibular systems
  • How movement influences the cerebellum and how to up regulate this part of the brain.
  • Reflexive stability strategies
  • Neural flossing and slacks for the spinal cord, upper and lower limbs

Teaching Team

Celest Pereira
Celest is a a trained physiotherapist and neurology student I believe education is the best motivation! She teaches anatomy and biomechanics to yoga teachers and prides herself on making hard concepts easy. She also teaches yoga-inspired movement and my classes are challenging and full of education.

 

Eligibility + Pre-Requisites

This immersion is perfect for yoga teacher who already has an anatomical foundation and is keen to take their knowledge to the next level.
