Full Description

Alignment, Part 3

Sunday, November 17, 11am-2pm

Our Foundations of Alignment workshops will teach you how to build common yoga poses from the ground up for steadiness (sthira) and ease (sukha). As Patanjali stated in Yoga Sutra 2.46: “Sthira sukham asanam”…the posture should be steady, stable and comfortable in order to still the mind and body and connect to Spirit. Learn how to properly set the roots of your hands or feet, stabilize the trunk by engaging legs and core, and create lightness of breath and upper body. Great for beginners to develop a safe practice and understand the mechanics of common poses, and for experienced students to check-in with their yoga habits and to dive into the subtleties of alignment! Here are the poses we will cover in this workshop:

Urdhva Dhanurasana

Vrksasana

Garudasana

Gomakasana

Parivrtta Anjaneyasana

Prasarita Padottanasana

Marchiyasana

Ardha Navasana
