What is movement literacy?

A short video about this digital training.

  • Movement Literacy

    Designed by yoga teachers, for yoga teachers, this digital course trains you to read the human body in an entirely new way. It’s a concept we call movement literacy.

  • Our Approach

    Let’s be honest: anatomy can be a dry and intimidating subject. That’s why this training revolves around experiential learning and as much laughter as possible.

  • Integrated Learning

    We went on retreat in the Californian redwoods and created material that looks at each concept from multiple angles and supports the way you learn best.

Course Overview

  • Fifteen chapters cover the entire body.

  • Learn in diverse ways: workshop videos, webinar tutorials, and audio podcasts.

  • Monthly study plan emails to keep you on track.

  • Twelve live video Q&A sessions with Mary Richards (Jan - Dec 2019).

  • Private Facebook group for community and support through June 2020.

  • Supplementary material includes: award-winning medical animations, PDF downloads, assigned reading, homework, quizzes and more.

  • Certificate of completion with 50hrs of Yoga Alliance continuing education credit.

  • Lifetime access means your enrollment never expires.

FAQ

  • What are the days/times of the live Q&A sessions?

    Our live Q&A sessions with Mary Richards (and her cat Penelope) are a highlight of the course. We announce the details via email each month. And of course the recordings will be available to watch afterwards.

  • I don't know very much about anatomy and I'm not currently teaching yoga; can I still join the course?

    Yes! The course begins with anatomy fundamentals, and moves into deeper material that will dramatically impact your yoga practice and teaching. We've structured the course with serious students in mind. This embodied learning will change the way you practice and inhabit your own body.

  • Judith and Mary sometimes teach this course live in person. What's the difference to the online version?

    This digital course is comprehensive. It covers all 15 chapters of Judith's book "Yoga Body". The other advantage of online learning is that your enrollment does not expire - meaning you have an extended time to access the material at your own pace. That said, in person anatomy trainings are fantastic. The one drawback is that a workshop presents a lot of material to absorb in a short amount of time. So it really depends how you learn best.

  • How long does it take to complete the course?

    It depends. Some students focus on one chapter a week, completing the course in 15 weeks. Others move more slowly, giving themselves time to integrate the learning into their bodies.In total you can expect to devote at least 50 hours to the course material.

  • When does my course access expire?

    Enrollment in Experiential Anatomy 2019 includes lifetime access to the course materials, and live support through June 2020.

  • Do I need to purchase any additional materials?

    We recommend you have a copy of Judith's book, "Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Asana." While not required, we also think you'll enjoy subscribing to the Anatomus app.

  • Can I receive Yoga Alliance credit?

    Yes. At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of completion for 50 non-contact hours. After that, you can submit for continuing education credit from Yoga Alliance in the United States. If you live outside the USA, please ask your equivalent organization if they accept digital training as non-contact hours.

  • What if I'm not good with computers? Or on Facebook?

    No worries, this course was designed with pre-millennials in mind; and we're always here to help with tech questions. Participation in the private Facebook group is always optional. It's a place to build community and ask our Teaching Assistant, Steph Kerr, questions.

  • What is the refund policy?

    We want you to be 100% delighted with your learning experience. If, for any reason, you're disappointed after the first week of the course, we will be happy to issue a full refund.

    This program was practical and thoughtfully put together. I learned so much more and now can further add to my teaching knowledge and experience. This doesn't repeat what a certified instructor already has learned. This is not basic, it brings so much more to the table, er, mat!

    Though I was reluctant to take an online course, I found this much more convenient since I could listen to the podcasts, videos and webinars on my own schedule. Lizzie’s questions are really helpful especially since she knows her mom so well and I love the depth of Judith’s knowledge and how she shares her experiences with Iyengar, and Mary rounds it off with her super in-depth knowledge in all areas.

    As a new teacher of Yoga I found this course helpful, inspiring and interesting to boot!

    I always wanted to learn more about anatomy but I was afraid of failing, never understanding and not knowing how to apply and share it in a relatable, everyday way. But this course changed all of that and it is a treasure I’ll keep going back to and finding hidden gems again and again.

    I have just completed Chapter 7 on the sacrum and have already learned SO much that I am able to feel in my own body and share with the students in my classes. What has helped the most is actually looking at the vertebral column to see with my own eyes how it moves - in the talks, podcasts and in the key pose video for each chapter and in the pocket anatomy examples.
