The “Why” Anatomy of Yoga with
Todd Drybread – 50 Hour Program



Understanding the Anatomy of your body and the Anatomy of yoga, will allow you to deepen your practice in a safe, more empowering way, while providing insight to create and teach classes in a powerful and meaningful way.  Dr. Todd’s “The Why Anatomy of Yoga” programs, take the traditional learning’s of the body’s anatomy and physiology and not only applies it to your yoga practice, but gives you a deeper insight to the why of it all. Rather than teaching you about the body, he teaches you about your body.

No two bodies are the same.  Everyone’s bones and muscles are slightly different.  Understanding what is happening in your body and that of others can change the way you experience your body in every yoga pose and how you speak to the poses while teaching a class.

The “Why” Anatomy of Yoga 50 hour workshop will include lecture, practice and hands on teaching over 2 long weekends.
