As yoga enters the 21st century, anatomically informed practice is becoming more relevant than ever. This growing evolution towards safe yoga is calling practitioners of all backgrounds to discover a new asana practice that is precise, sustainable and responsive to the needs of each unique body.
Anatomy of Movement® is today’s leading methodology to study anatomy in motion; with 40+ years of research and education, it has a track record of empowering yogis into the next level of expertise. Founded by research pioneer Blandine Calais-Germain, AoM courses are known for a dynamic experience that fosters creative and analytical anatomy skills.
During this 25-hr AoM training immersion, we will use movement, discussion and partner work to learn about:
• The different structures of the spine and how they coordinate with breathing kinetics
• Analyzing each body in the most popular yoga postures
• The many possible ways to create the most expansive breath during yoga practice
• Identifying and preventing common anatomical issues in yoga practice
• Practical strategies to create classes that respect the unique body of each student
Whether you are curious yogi, someone considering a YTT or a teacher with experience, this immersion will provide you with an exciting toolkit to work with the fascinating human anatomy. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate from the Wellco Yoga Anatomy AoM program along with access to an online course content platform.
Andrea is the head of programs for the Anatomy of Movement® international hub in Barcelona, Spain. He is a senior practitioner of AoM, building on years of direct study with the school’s founder.

This immersion will be a full day exploration where we will expand our knowledge of movement and how to apply it to our practice and daily life!
The Pillars - Here we will establish a foundation of strength, range of motion, and awareness around how our joints work. With FRC® principles around control, resilience and innerstanding tension, we will enhance the prerequisites of our joints to invite more freedom of movement into our lives. Mobility = Practicality, Application, Adaptation, Joint Focus.
The Paint - This is where we get creative and free. With strong joints and awareness we can begin to play with task-based movement, we will dive deep into the fluidity of the spine, and explore (in)tension and how our body responds and reacts to passive vs. active expressions. We will discover the tools that we can apply to our yoga practice and everyday patterns, and learn how to improve our individual physical and mental health through the simplicity of movement.
Movement = Creativity, Individuality, Randomness, Freedom, Awareness.Movement is medicine, and mastering your mobility will give you more tools and new concepts that will change the way you see movement and how the body works. Deep dive into your own fullest potential!
