Physical Body Essentials

This weekend is focused on helping participants understand healthy alignment in the body as it relates to yoga asana. Alignment for common yoga postures and transitions will be revisited and considered according to simple biomechanical principles. Modifications for healthy ranges of motion and other tools that support overall alignment such as bandha and props will be discussed. This weekend will be largely experiential and hands-on to facilitate body-based learning; lecture, demonstration and discussion will be included to facilitate students’ understanding of major concepts. The intention of this module is to provide participants with food for thought and ways to modify postures to keep joints and muscles safe over the long-term.


During this 20 hour module we will explore:

– Basic biomechanical principles that inform body alignment
– Healthy transitions that support joint health
– Modifications to accommodate various healthy, normal ranges of motion
– How to use external props and internal support (bandha) to support the longevity of one’s practice

**This course is open to any 200-hour graduates.
