Alignment is our shared language in yoga practice. Alignment is about relationships, within the body and with the world. Good alignment is personal, but the practices are universal.
Using classical principles of alignment, we will explore the fundamental actions that appear again and again in asana practice. The actions we will explore are eminently useful and repeatable inner structures that compose all the different shapes we know and love. We will learn how to use the body as a measuring tool for itself, and how to teach action instead of shape.
Building off a few foundational asana, we will explore a range of classical poses. You can expect to move specifically, hold poses for longer periods of time, and thread awareness into each posture.
Simplicity leads to accessibility, progress and illumination in ourselves and our students. Slowing things down means we can notice twice as much.
