Alignment Yoga Workshop

March 10th @ 10:45am - 12:45pm

Finding Your Alignment Yoga Workshops with Courtney Krishnamurthy

Proper alignment is something we strive for in a yoga class, but with the variations in our bodies, the general alignment cues often miss the mark. The curvature of our bones, the placement of our joint sockets, how our bodies have moved over the years, the adaptation of our fascia, and the atrophy and/or overuse of our muscles all contribute to how we find the alignment unique to us in a yoga posture. We are all different, and what works for one person might not work for the other when it comes to alignment cues.

In this series we will look at the essence of yoga postures, diving into the purpose of the pose and teasing out what parts of our body contribute to the overall achievement of it. While each class will look at the anatomy of the body and what muscles we are attempting to activate and isolate, we’ll explore exercises that help you feel the sensations in your body, discovering the patterns unique to your body, and how to apply that information to common yoga postures.

Each class in the series will focus on different components in the body, but remain accessible to all, so attend one in the series or attend them all! Whether you are in yoga class, running, weight lifting, or simply walking down the street, you’ll begin to notice how the principles covered in this series can be applied to your life… or your clients’ lives if you teach a movement modality.
