A&P for Thai Massage and Yoga - Level 1

Hours: 20.00
CEU Contact Hours: 17.00

Tuition: $450.00 (50 percent deposit required at registration)

This course is an introduction to anatomy, physiology and kinesiology for Thai massage practitioners, yoga teachers, and others. The focus in the A&P 1 course is on developing a solid grounding in these issues for students who have never had formal education in anatomy, or wish to refresh their knowledge with a different approach. Instead of the usual dry, memorization-oriented A&P, this class strives to be as interactive and hands-on as possible to increase retention and make learning anatomy fun.

The course covers the basics of planes of movement, major bones, muscles, attachments, function, anatomy of movement, palpation, isolated stretching, basic trigger point theory, role of breath, posture, and A&P effects of several important yoga and thai yoga asanas. Focus is on palpation and practical exercises to facilitate hands-on learning.

There is a written and practical examination component to the course. Upon successful completion, the student receives a 20-hour Certificate of Achievement from Thai Bodywork. This course provides 17 NCBTMB CE hours. Successful completion of AP1 or an equivalency examination is a prerequisite for the CTB course series.
