Anatomy and physiology of the human body are an important part of any yoga practice. It starts with the five sense organs such as the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin; continues through the nervous system and the endocrine system. Anatomy and physiology is the study of the arrangement of the parts of the body in relation to each other and how they work together in concert. Anatomy and physiology to help us understand the relationship between structures such as joints, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments and the functions they perform. The understanding of how the human body is constructed is fundamental to the efficient functioning of the body and can help eliminate dysfunction, injury and disease. It can also be applied to improving athletic performance and general health.
There are three major systems of analysis used in modern medicine and biology. Systems theory is the scientific investigation of living organisms and their systems of organization. System biology compares and contrasts living things under different circumstances to come up with descriptions and a framework for the adaptive and for the explanation of the structure and function of living things. The comparative method of investigation deals with comparing different living things and their systems of organization to identify similarities and differences. Comparative systems research is a tool used by teachers and student coordinators to assess anatomy and physiology in the context of a class.
The knowledge of the principles of bioorganic chemistry, kinesiology (the study of the nervous system), kinesiopathology (the study of muscular functions), cellular physiology, kinesiolinguistics (the study of language organs) and psychoneuroimmunology (relationship between the immune system and the body) is needed to teach anatomy and physiology in a class. Some of the key skills required for this field are laboratory techniques, diagnostic procedures, therapeutic interventions and application of safe and effective practices. A student who is well rounded will be able to integrate information from all of these fields and apply them to a holistic approach to healing. The student should be able to analyze, compare and interpret data, make informed decisions and act upon them.
The emphasis in teaching anatomy and physiology of human beings is on the study of specific systems and functions. The goal of the B warrior yoga program is to awaken the energy force within each of us that lies dormant inside of us. It is from this force that our consciousness can rise to a higher level.
