Anatomy on Teacher Training Courses
Matt teaches the anatomy and physiology component (about 20 hours) on the following teacher training courses:
In his teaching of anatomy, Matt aims to provide the student with a broad framework for understanding the biomechanics of the body so that students can have their own insights, rather than expecting them to memorise long lists of muscle attachments and biochemicals. His course focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and he always ties the information back to yoga. He is known for his light-hearted and engaging approach to presenting complex anatomical concepts.
"Matt is an engaging teacher, and the depth of his intelligence really comes across in his lessons. I particularly enjoyed the practical elements of the classes."
-Eloise Skinner, completed Frame YTT in Spring 2017
"I thoroughly appreciated Matt's insight into anatomy and physiology in our YTT and how it can assist us not only in our own practice but most importantly that of others when we are teaching - invaluable and I only want to learn more! Thank you, Yogi Matt!"
-Annabel Bouttle, completed Mercedes Sieff YTT in Spring 2018
