Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Course
This course contains everything you need to safely teach Vinyasa Yoga classes. Two of the books contain 909 pages of foundational knowledge, which every Yoga teacher should know about – the nine main Indian Yoga styles, philosophy, bandhas, pranayama, asanas, chakras, kriyas, meditation, and more.
The anatomy text contains 232 pages of “must have” information for Yoga teachers. Now, you can see inside every asana. With clear, expert instruction and full-color, detailed anatomical drawings, this text explains the most common asanas – providing a deeper understanding of the structures and principles underlying each movement and of physical Yoga itself.
From breathing to standing poses, see how each muscle is used, how slight alterations of a pose can enhance or reduce effectiveness, and how the spine, breathing, and body position are all fundamentally linked.
Whether you are just beginning your journey, or have been practicing Yoga for years, this will be an invaluable resource – one that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light.

The Yoga Anatomy DVD includes nearly 4 hours of in-depth lectures, demonstrations, and special features on human anatomy, as it relates to Yoga practice.
The focus of the DVD is comparative skeletal anatomy: understanding the underlying skeletal structure of the body, how the shapes and sizes of the bones differ significantly from person to person, and how to use that knowledge in gaining a much deeper understanding of our individual yoga practices.
You will discover the key concepts of compression, tension, proportion, and orientation, with the help of a wide range of Yoga students. These concepts help us to understand why no two people will ever experience the same Yoga posture in exactly the same way. This light-hearted, yet provocative approach, will challenge many misconceptions about Yoga, while providing the foundation for the development of a truly personal Yoga practice grounded in safety and respect.
Highlights from this DVD include:
- Nearly 4 hours of presentations, comparisons and special features
- Interactive Skeleton feature as an anatomy study aid
- Bonus lecture: differences among real human femur bones
- Q&A: Real yoga teachers ask Paul common questions about anatomy and Yoga
Anatomy presentation topics include:
- Tension vs. Compression
- The Eight Major Joints of the Body: an overview using comparative anatomy
- The Shoulder vs. the Spine
- The Femur and the Pelvis
- The Importance of Skeletal Proportion
- Orientation to Gravity
Finally, the 60 minute Yoga meditation DVD focuses on the meditative aspects of Yoga, using breathing techniques, and yoga positions, to reduce stress, and clear the cluttered mind.
