Anatomy Studies for Yoga Teachers (ASFYT) is a comprehensive series of courses in musculoskeletal anatomy, injury awareness/ prevention and the anatomy of yoga asana. The program was originally created by Jason Ray Brown as a continuing education opportunity for yoga teachers wanting to deepen their knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy. However, while the program is oriented toward yoga teachers, yoga students, Pilates instructors, dancers, personal trainers and people from all walks of life have enrolled and we warmly welcome anyone with a sincere desire to learn more about the subjects that we offer. No prior knowledge of anatomy is required to enroll, but some experience with yoga will be helpful.
The program consists of the following three courses:
- ASFYT-1: Bones, Joints & Common Injuries
- ASFYT-2: Muscles & Their Actions
Prerequisites: ASFYT-1, or strong background in skeletal anatomy and common injuries
- ASFYT-3: Anatomy of Yoga Asana
Prerequisites: ASFYT-2, or strong background in musculoskeletal anatomy (including reverse actions)
Unless otherwise noted, all courses take place in New York City at:
- Zenyasa Yoga & Wellness Studio
155 W. 72nd Street, #601
Between Amsterdam & Columbus
- We also occasionally offer ASFYT-3 as a one-week intensive, either in NYC or as a residential retreat (click here to see upcoming retreats)
Don't live in NYC? Can't attend daytime classes? We have a great home-study program that you can complete at home, concurrently with the residential course in NYC!
