As our yoga practice progresses and we attempt new poses, it becomes more challenging to advance safely. We may ask, “How do I move deeper without causing harm? How do I use my practice as a therapeutic tool?”
In this fun, interactive, and informative workshop, we break down many of the basic Integral Yoga sequence to learn:
- Correct and safe yoga alignment, based on human anatomy principles and current yoga concepts
- Bringing refinement, precision, and Prana fully into practice
- How to identify harmful misalignment and remove trauma from your practice
- How to use practice therapeutically for existing injuries and prevent new ones
The class is an on-the-mat class, taught completely through asana practice. There is limited lecture, allowing you to learn while doing. This workshop is designed to immediately transform your practice with instructions you will use in every asana. This is an excellent program for students who are ready to refine their practice and bring attain their next level. Yoga teachers of all traditions will benefit greatly from this workshop as they learn to recognize injuries and simple ways to share alignment principles with their students in classes or one-on-one sessions.
