Episode 38:

The Truth About Anatomy

with Mado Hesselink

Is knowing anatomy really essential for being a great yoga teacher? 

Psst. Want to get an email each time a new episode is released?



Many of the yoga teachers I talk to believe that anatomy is their biggest learning opportunity for becoming a better yoga teacher. It’s the number one topic I hear people wish was covered more thoroughly in their teacher training. But… I think most yoga teachers misunderstand the purpose and place of studying anatomy.

Listen to this episode to hear:

  • A bit about my journey from alignment based yoga teacher to anatomy based yoga teacher to…?
  • The more accurate definition of anatomy that helps to place it into proper context. 
  • The related topics of study that might be more important for yoga teachers and movement professionals.
  • Why I hope this episode becomes outdated as soon as possible.

I also share about an upcoming training for yoga teachers that I am collaborating on with two brilliant colleagues who are also upcoming guests on the podcast (keep your eyes peeled the next few weeks for more anatomy related episodes). 

PS – The new year is bringing many new clients my way and I am very grateful. I am 3/4 of the way to capacity for working with yoga teachers on a regular basis. Would you like to take one of my final spaces
