Collaboration with

Online learning at your own pace, then brought to life in our classroom!

The Yoga Institute has collaborated with world-renowned Leslie Kaminoff, co-author of the #1 best-selling yoga book “Yoga Anatomy Fundamentals” to offer world-class Yoga Anatomy training which combines quality online learning with classroom-based tuition. Normally USD$1997 when purchased as a standalone course.

Lesley is part of our global community family, also having been mentored by TKV Desikachar (as was our founder and director Michael de Manincor).


Leslie Kaminoff has been bringing the study of anatomy to life for over 25 years. Kaminoff’s acclaimed Yoga Anatomy Course, previously available only at his studio, The Breathing Project in New York City, has helped yoga teachers and practitioners to enhance their personal practice, and provide better experiences for their students and clients.

Participants of The Yoga Institute’s respected Diploma of Yoga Teacher Training, 100-hour Yoga Studies course and Level One Upgrade courses have the unique opportunity to incorporate Leslie’s online course into their yoga studies or teacher training.

Complementing the web-based video lectures featuring Lesley and his colleague Amy Matthews, will be the integrated application of the principles within The Yoga Institute’s Asana and Pranayama courses, as well as dedicated Yoga Anatomy tutorial sessions in the 500-hour Diploma course and 100-hour course.



  • 20 hours (10 x 2 hr sessions) of web-based video lectures
  • Face-to-face tutorials and integrated application of the principles within relevant course subjects including facilitated discussion, review and assessment
  • Students will receive streaming and downloadable video, streaming and downloadable audio, transcripts, visuals, handouts, and links from available without expiry for lifetime reference


“Leslie couples his immense knowledge with a refreshing ability to translate complex information into real-world terms and give us instantly applicable tools that make the world of anatomy, yoga and breath something we can deeply experience and understand.”
Sadie Nardini


“Leslie is wonderful at demystifying complex subjects & making them readily accessible — both on an intellectual academic level & on a tangible experiential level. What’s more, he’s refreshingly non-pretentious and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everybody’s on the same page.”
Suzanne Ausnit


Enjoy video tutorials at your own leisure, working through the worksheets, then come to class where we discuss, play and bring it to life!

Students in our 500-hour Teacher Training Diploma have Anatomy automatically included in their curriculum.

Students enrolled in our 100-hour Yoga Studies/Teacher Training Foundations course can elect to add on the anatomy component for the discounted fee of just $500.

100-hour students who do not add on the anatomy component at the outset can add it on later if they choose to carry on and do the whole 500-hour diploma, but we recommend considering it at the outset to help smooth your workload.

If you think there’s a good chance you will carry on and complete the 500-hour Teacher Training course, we recommend adding on the anatomy component at the start of your 100-hour course.

Completion of the 100-hour course + Yoga Anatomy component means you will receive a second certificate of an additional 30 hours of yoga studies. Plus, anatomy & physiology studies are simply amazingly fascinating with lifelong learnings to keep you more body-aware and in safe practice!

“This was a brilliant course and I absolutely loved it. The mini-sections within each unit allowed allowed me to focus on each learning experience as a bite sized chunk, rather than an indigestible mouthful.

The course opened my eyes to so many new and exciting aspects of yoga that I’d never really considered. It also answered a bunch of anatomical questions that I had about particular poses. Thanks to this course, I’ve also found ways to move into (and hold) poses with far more comfort and ease.”
