In this podcast episode we talk to Yoga Teacher, Anatomy and Physiology Teacher and Author, Andrew McGonigle about the place for anatomy and physiology within yoga.  Drawing on a background in medicine Andrew incorporates his indepth knowledge, training and experience in anatomy and medicine as well as in Yoga, to create anatomy and physiology based Yoga teacher training courses. Historically, anatomy isn’t always covered in much depth when training to become a Yoga teacher and Andrew brings a fresh and diverse attitude to the world of Yoga teaching training and we were delighted to hold conversation with him.

Andrew McGonigle has been studying anatomy for over twenty years, originally training to become a doctor and then moving away from the Clinical practice of medicine to become a yoga teacher, massage therapist and anatomy and physiology teacher. He combines all of his skills and experience to teach anatomy and physiology on Yoga Teacher Training courses internationally and runs his own online Anatomy and Physiology Applied to Yoga courses. His new book Supporting Yoga Students with Common Injuries and Conditions: A Handbook for Yoga Teachers and Trainees was recently published. He lives in Los Angeles with his husband.

“Always enlightening and interesting! Good for the soul – friendly, inclusive, informative and caring, like a warm hug from a good friend. What more could you want from a podcast?”

“Fantastic podcast. Wonderful interesting subjects and very enjoyable to listen to.”

“Incredible!!! Spirituality plus real life, sprinkled with a huge dose of love. This podcast will speak to your soul. Raw, authentic and honest. Despite how it’s commercially depicted, yoga isn’t some contortionist act or sweating in a studio. Nor is it a group hippies chanting. Yoga is life. This podcast is an absolute blessing!!”
