This 100hr course is designed for yoga teachers who want to learn advanced skills in yoga anatomy and adaptive asana. Focusing on asana-based solutions to common issues such as shoulder, lower back, hip and knee injury, this course is a must for all teachers who want to feel confident helping students manage pain and injury. The course will also teach you how to conduct functional postural assessments, assess range of movement and determine dysfunctional physiological patterns.  You will learn advanced sequencing skills and boost your confidence in providing therapeutic adjustments. 

The course consists of 64 hrs face to face training in Davidson (near Frenchs Forest, 20 mins north of Sydney CBD) and 36hrs home study and practicum.  You must attend 80% of classroom training and complete all required home study and assessment tasks in order to pass the course.

Orthopedic Yoga 1: The Lower Body

9.30am – 5.30pm, Thursday 20 – Friday 21 September 2018


Deepen your anatomical understanding as we examine the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system through the yoga lens. You'll enjoy hands-on exercises that will sharpen your observation skills as you explore functional anatomy, dysfunction and the treatment of the lower body, including lumbar spine, hips, sacro-illiac joint, knees and ankles. Includes somatics techniques.


Orthopedic Yoga 2: The Upper Body

9.30am – 5.30pm, Saturday 22 - Sunday 23 September 2018


Our exploration of the human body continues as we take a close look at the functional anatomy and treatment of the upper body, including the biomechanics of the thoracic and cervical spine, the shoulder joint, elbows and wrists. By the end of this module you will have a strong understanding of how to assess and use simple movements and somatics exercises to treat students with a range of musculoskeletal pain and injury.


Clinical Assessment in Yoga Therapy

9.30am – 5.30pm, Thursday 15 November 2018

Remedial Yoga goes beyond assessing the nuts and bolts of the physical body. This fascinating workshop explores the techniques of Clinical Assessment in remedial yoga. You'll learn how to see students through the many lenses of therapeutic yoga, including the ayurvedic doshas, panca kosha, gunas and more, integrating the philosophy of yoga into the practical business of clinical assessment.

Functional Assessment and Diversity in the Human Body

9.30am – 5.30pm, Friday 16 November 2018


This module will teach you how to adapt asana according to the infinite 'human variations' you will meet in the yoga room. From different body proportions to joint orientation, every body is different. At the end of this session you will be confident to work therapeutically with a wide variety of bodies, based on functional rather than aesthetic principles. 


Subtle Adjusting and Alignment

9.30am – 5.30pm, Saturday 17 November 2018


This module further develops your ability to assess dysfunctional patterns of movement and postural alignment. You will learn how to conduct a thorough structural and mobility assessment and then use your observations to help students re-pattern dysfunctional physical habits. You'll enjoy plenty of hands on experience in providing subtle therapeutic adjustments that support your students to make therapeutic adaptations from within, rather than manipulating their posture from the outside.

Therapeutic Sequencing

9.30am – 5.30pm, Sunday 18 November 2018

Starting from the ground up, this module will show you how to conduct private adaptive yoga classes. Bringing together the theory and practice of the preceding modules, you will practice assessing your student's needs, learn how to set a therapeutic goal, determine which techniques are most appropriate for each individual client and how to sequence an elegant, targeted practice



You will receive two one-on-one mentoring sessions with senior course faculty during this course. These sessions are designed to help you consolidate your learning, build on your individual skill base and receive feedback and practical assessment from your mentoring teacher. Mentoring sessions are $120 (not included in the price of the training), with fees payable directly to your mentor.


Your learning during this course will be assessed in five ways.

1. Mentoring: During your second one-on-one mentoring session with a senior faculty member, you will be assessed on your teaching of key practical techniques taught during the course, along with your skills and knowledge base relating to your studies in Anatomical Yoga Therapy.

2. In-Class Assessment: You will be participating in simple in-class assessments, during which supervising teachers assess your learning in key areas of the curriculum.

3. Written Assessment (Reflection):  You will be asked to write a reflective assignment in which you consider your learning process and identify how you are using the skills you have acquired, as well as identifying gaps in your skills/knowledge base.

4. Written Assessment (Case Study): You will undertake a live case study with a volunteer student. You will document and assess both the process and outcome of individual yoga sessions you conduct with your case study volunteer.

5. Practicum/Journal: You will be required to undertake a minimum of 10hrs observing, assisting and teaching in yoga classes that address musculoskeletal/soft tissue issues. These hours are signed off by supervising teachers/mentors and you will keep a reflective journal documenting the process and your learning.

Course pre-requisites: You must have already completed a recognised Yoga Teacher Training (RYT200 or more)
