Set your students up for success with their own portal of access (optional) to this course! Trainees with previous anatomy background may not need this option but for the other students it is great for them to have their own off-site access. This way they can take the time they need with the course material and revisit any areas of weakness as much as they need to. This will increase your trainees retention of the anatomical material that has been provided. Please inquire below.

“This is an excellent introduction to anatomy. It is well thought out and logical in its presentation. The definitions, explanations, diagrams and quizzes will serve as a terrific guide for people taking this course.”
Dr. Patrick Kirkham, B.Sc., D.C.
"I took the Yoga School of Anatomy's Introduction to Anatomy course as a beginner in Yoga, with the possibility of taking my teacher training in the future. The course is very affordable, it is very user friendly and flows nicely. I found it beneficial that there are several options for studying, with available printouts and online quizzes. Supplemental videos, diagrams and photos made it easier to understand and follow along with the material. I appreciated that Jennifer recorded videos of herself explaining certain concepts further. It gave me, as a student, a sense of who she is and it made for a more personable experience. This course is essential for practicing and teaching yoga safely. It will not only benefit Yoga teachers, but also everyone who practices."
