Yang (Astanga) Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training (50 hour, level 1)
Based on the teachings of Paul Grilley

Enrich, enhance and deepen your knowledge and Astanga practice with the Yang Yoga & Anatomy Immersion Level 1 at Delight Yoga in Amsterdam.


This 50-hour Yang Yoga & Anatomy Immersion enriches your Astanga practice and/ or way of teaching, increases existing knowledge of anatomy or is a rich addition to previously acquired anatomical knowledge in other workshops and /or Yoga Teacher Trainings. 

During this Immersion, you will study intensively the basic anatomy and physiology of the human body and you’ll learn how to apply this practical knowledge to the most important Astanga Yoga asanas of the Primary Series. You will gain insight into your own body and that of others, by analyzing the possibilities and limitations of each joint’s range of movement. Furthermore you will study the muscles of the torso, hips and legs, connective tissues, fundamental bones & joints of the body and the definitions of movements. You will also deepen your awareness of the importance, functions and effects of each Astanga Yoga pose. Having this knowledge as a base, you are able to practice, teach and adjust each Ashtanga pose in a personalized, therapeutic and creative manner to meet either your own or your students different physical capabilities. Additionally you’ll discover the difference between a Yin & Yang (Astanga) practice and how to create a healthy and balanced practice. The basic principles of Taoism and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras will be used here as reference. Lastly, you’ll increase your self-knowledge with coaching and Dharma teachings .

The Yang Yoga & Anatomy Immersion is suited for all students who have at least practiced Astanga and/or Vinyasa Yoga for six months and want to deepen their practice. It is also an In Depth Study for students participating in the Delight Yoga Teacher Training. Additionally it’s open to those who want to expand their professional skills as a yoga teacher.
