Yoga’s effects on range of motion, local muscular endurance, and health are well documented. In this course Yoga has been dissected down into a strictly physical presentation, specifically relevant to the fitness professions. The course imbues the educator with an understanding of yoga, its scientific basis, and its uses in physical education environments.
