This course builds upon the material learned in Anatomy for Yoga Practitioners and Teachers, further developing a teacher’s observational and assessment skills, and enhancing their practice and work with students.  While the skills are best used in a one-on-one environment, the practitioner or teacher can benefit from a greater understanding of assessment techniques for use in a group setting.  Students will learn musculoskeletal assessment techniques by advancing their knowledge of concepts such as: mobility & flexibility, facilitated vs. inhibited, symmetry, range of motion, tone vs. atrophy, balance and perceived sources of pain.  Learning will take place through group observation and one-on-one assessments. Basic yoga postures will set the observation platform.
