Adam’s anatomy course will bring your practise and your teaching to the next level. The videos are fun to watch and very interactive. Adam is a great teacher and you can tell how much passion he has for his subject. There are exersises for every part of the body that will enable you to gain a better understanding on safe alignment and how the different parts of your body work in asana. Trying the exercises yourself makes it easy to remember what you’ve just learned and it’s even more fun to share them with your friends or students. The knowledge checks in between give you good idea on where you’re at and what you might want to review again. If you are looking on how to deepen your understanding of yoga anatomy this is the way to go.

What's great about the course is not just earning knowledge but also providing us excercises to experience what I have just leaned and cues to activate the certain area in asanas. The course encourages to make the most of the course, and I am glad to have this platform where I can always come back as for both a practitioner and an instractor.

Very elegant and substantial course on the anatomy applied to a yogic practice. This 2-hour online course is a brilliant insight of the anatomy teachings offered by Adam during the teacher trainings and the Structural Awareness Technique programs given at Himalaya Yoga Valley Center. Through this excellent sequence of videos that break down the anatomy from toe to head, Adam invites us on a journey to deepen our understanding of the human's movements. Beautiful blend of scientific knowledge and visual examples. I highly recommend this online course to anyone who wants to dive deep into the modern science that hides behind the traditional practice of Yoga. Eric
