From Fit Flex Relax we find it important that teachers receive the right training. The training courses are also for those who do not necessarily want to become teachers themselves, but are looking for more depth in their own practice. For these reasons we have our own training program that focuses on the functional anatomy of (yin-)yoga.
Our head coach Gil will take care of this training. The full name of the course is Yin Yoga Teacher Training and functional anatomy. Initially, during theoretical lectures the teacher will pay attention to basic knowledge in the field of anatomy. The bones and muscles of the entire human body will be discussed. In addition, various postures will be discussed. We start from the functionality of the postures. For all postures we will discuss which muscles and bones we can use to develop or solve problems that have arisen in the past. At the end of the programme there will be an exam where theoretical and practical knowledge will be tested. Furthermore, during the training attention will be paid to teaching and improving / optimizing one's own practice.
Anatomy, bones, muscles and postures
Unit 1 of this course gives yoga instructors an innovative and refreshing program. The training is not based on the random and non-scientific of "rules of alignment". On the contrary, the training is based on the 14-10-7 paradigm of anatomy based on functional analysis.

14-10-7. Explaining and applying this sutra is the basis of our program. The complete sutra is as follows: "When you learn to see the body as 14 separate skeletal segments moved by 10 myofascial groups, you will be able to adapt the 7 Archetype postures to each student".
