When we talk about alignment in yoga, we are talking about two things. The alignment of your body and the alignment of your mind. The more clean your physical lines in yoga, the easier it is for the Prana or the energy to travel through your body. Like a big sunshine in the center of your heart, we want the rays to shine out through your heads, your hands and through your feet. You want to be able to use your body to express who you really are. With time as our body builds strength, your postures become an expression of the state of your mind. Your postures will show your strength, confidence, patience and determination.
In this workshop, understand the energetic lines of yoga. Learn the basic movements of the spine and the fundamental posititions of your hips, feet, shoulders and hands and how they should be applied to each category of posture.
