Re-imagining Alignment: Asana Lab
Including: Lecture, demo, asana practice and clinical observation.

In this creative, interactive lab environment, learn how to work individually with your asana and vinyasa practice – even in a group setting. Starting with clear and simple principles that govern musculo-skeletal function, you'll learn to put your yoga on a solid foundation literally from the ground up and from your head down. The intensive will be divided between two led practice sessions and an interactive lab focusing on individual modifications, teaching methodology, clinical observation, and audio-visual presentation of anatomical imagery.

Topics include:

  • Functional principles of alignment 
  • Breath-centered, anatomically-based cueing
  • The relationship of bandha to support and movement
  • Why instructions like “tuck your tail,” “lengthen your spine,” “square your hips” may be doing more harm than good
  • The use of gazing (drishti) and imagery to foster increased neuromuscular integration

Bring your mat, your practice and your questions. Time will be devoted to individual concerns. Although geared to teachers, therapists and experienced practitioners, anyone interested in the topic is welcome to attend. 

For yoga students and teachers, keen to deepen their knowledge and experience of breath-centred yoga practice.
