Whether you love a power Vinyasa flow class with minimal cues or an Iyengar class with seventy-five minutes of specific directions for one posture, you can benefit from digging deeper into alignment principles to enhance your yoga practice. Yoga Sutra 2:46, Sthira Sukham Asanam, states the posture should be steady and comfortable. Learning about intelligent yoga alignment will aid you in reaching this state each time you step on the mat.
When you gain more knowledge about healthy alignment in yoga and philosophy behind a pose, you can benefit more fully––physically, mentally, and emotionally. We’re excited to share a special collection of nine short alignment tutorials, each specific to a certain yoga asana (posture.) These ten-minute classes will help you find the best version of each asana for you.
The classes in this package cover common yoga poses and touch on all families of postures including forward bends, balancing poses, arm balances, twists, and backbends.
We aren’t saying each posture needs to look a certain way or that every person will practice the asana in the same manner. Instead, we suggest if you increase your awareness of how each posture feels when you adapt alignment cues to feel right in YOUR body, you can deepen your experience. Everyone is different and alignment principles are starting points to develop your own personal practice.
Your guide this week, yoga therapy expert, Shy Sayar, (ERYT-500, YACEP) is a senior yoga therapist and continuing education provider at the highest level offered by Yoga Alliance.
He designed these short tutorials utilizing his philosophy of teaching people, not poses. He believes the practices of yoga are infinitely adaptable to fit the practitioner’s stages of development, and there is no need to push the body into arbitrary shapes. Instead, his Tantravaya yoga method integrates the classical Eight Limbs of Yoga, equally cultivating the body, breath and mind to bring each practitioner to optimal, holistic health.
This program will give you tools and in-depth understanding to strengthen your current practice.
This program is beneficial for all levels of yoga practitioners, from teachers, who wish to deepen their understanding of yoga anatomy, to beginners, who want to learn to practice yoga with healthy habits, to keep the practice safe. Take a few moments to hone your knowledge and see how it feels!
