Anatomy for Yogis and Teachers: A Two-Part Live Webinar with Doug Keller
Join us for this webinar, which will surely clarify and transform your understanding of the body in asana practice!
You don’t need to know all the muscles and bones in your body to benefit from knowing anatomy - knowing the ones that make the biggest difference for your well-being is plenty. And knowing ‘anatomy’ isn’t just about ‘knowing’ muscles: it’s about knowing how to put them to good use in your practice, and knowing the difference they make in your well-being.
In this two-part webinar, Doug Keller will take you experientially through key muscles (and their actions) to focus on in your practice, how to fine-tune your poses through that knowledge, and how to recognize when their participation is lacking - and causing you problems.
While we are largely aware of our ‘big’ muscles, it’s the ‘little’ ones that make a difference in our joint health. We’ll be focusing a bit more on those. And some muscles, such as the psoas, would take up a workshop in and of themselves, so we’ll just touch upon them.
Doug Keller has been teaching workshops and trainings in the therapeutic applications of yoga for a decade, and is known not only for his effectiveness in communicating this ever-evolving approach in these trainings, but also for his extensive writing on the topic in magazines, journals and his two-volume work on ‘Yoga As Therapy.’
He is also, in addition to his traveling and teaching, a Distinguished Professor at the Maryland University of Integrative Health in their Master’s Degree program in Yoga Therapy. This program is state-approved and accredited for granting a Master’s degree in this field, and is fully accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Doug Keller will offer this two-part live webinar via Zoom on Saturday, June 11, and Sunday, June 12, 2022.
Saturday, June 11, 2022 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (Zurich time):
We will focus on the lower body, particularly in the area of feet, knees, hip joints, and sacrum/low back. The muscles and myofascial lines that most affect these joint areas - and the relationships between them - will be related to functional movement, and specifically to asana, with clear alignment and action pointers that make our understanding of them experiential as well as effective for addressing problems that commonly arise.
Sunday, June 12, 2022 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (Zurich time):
This session will focus on the upper body, starting with the effect of the sacrum upon the spine, the role of the muscles of the rib cage in both breath and shoulder movement, the shoulders and arms, and consequences in the neck. Though this covers a lot of ground, our focus on key muscles and their balanced actions in the upper body will pull them into focus for you to feel confident with working more clearly in yoga poses, and understanding the sources of problems and limitations.
This webinar is recommended for yoga practitioners interested in anatomy, for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainees.
It can be booked as a two-day program or for single sessions.
The webinar will be recorded with high quality video and audio. The recordings will be available to view and re-view on Vimeo for 8 months - so even if you can’t make the broadcast, you can watch them any time at your convenience.
The illustrated notes will also be available for you to download.
Doug teaches in English.
