Thank you for the great participation today! In today’s meeting, we started our anatomy discussion with going over “The Language of Anatomy”. These terms start to build the foundation for learning anatomy. We discussed why this is important to know, anatomical position, proprioception, the 3 Planes of Movement (Sagittal, Frontal, and Transverse) and the 6 types of movement within these planes (flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, external rotation, and internal rotation), as well as the 10 terms that you can use to reference your body parts (lateral, medial, anterior, posterior, superior, inferior, proximal, distal, superficial, and deep). We also discussed where to find information in your textbooks as well as provided more information on completing your Anatomy Essays.

*Note: Don’t forget, as we go through our Anatomy discussions for the next couple of weeks, you will want to review not just the “Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology” Lesson, but also review the “Learning the Asanas: Alignment, Adjustments, and Yogic Techniques” Lesson as they are interrelate to each other.
