Denver Integrative Massage School is pleased to announce a new signature course called Science for Yogis.  This course is specifically designed for yoga teachers and dedicated yoga practitioners.  Topics will include instruction in foundational anatomy and physiology, pathology, and introduction to kinesiology as it relates to teaching and practicing yoga.

As more people are drawn to yoga teaching and a yoga practice, teachers are seeing a wide range of physical abilities as well as people with a range of physical ailments and conditions.  The purpose of this class is to provide a pathological approach to teaching yoga.  Teachers will leave with a detailed understanding of causes and effects of diseases that affect a yoga practice, as well as an ability to better observe and understand the anatomy, gait, and postural issues of their yoga students.

Students will learn about all introduction aspects to Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, and Kinesiology. Such topics include:  medical terminology, Western and Asian signs and symptoms of disease and disharmony, basic pharmacology, all systems of the body, actions of individual muscles and types of muscle contractions, gait, posture, and assessment.

This course starts every quarter and meets one weekday night per week, 5:30p – 9:00p, for six months.  The course is 100 hours of instruction. The cost is $700, not including the cost of required textbooks that will help deepen your knowledge of anatomy and physiology.  Enrollment is open, so don’t delay!
