This 5 week series was so popular last time that I had to bring it back by popular demand. This series explores the individual classes of yoga asana with a different class of poses each week. We will look at in depth: standing poses, inversions, arm balances, back bends, forward bends, hip openers and twists. Learn optimal alignment in poses you are already doing so you can learn poses that – up until now- you never thought you could do.
Standing Poses are the most fundamental class of postures. Proper alignment is most easily learned through standing poses. They teach us to be grounded in our stance and to hug into our center and then extend out. They teach us how to bring our inner thighs back and apart and how to scoop our tailbone. When alignment is understood fully in standing poses, it provides us with all we need to know to be able to do all classes of asana. To know forward bends is to love them. Learn how to stop doing them like you are doing a back bend and accept them fully for what they are. Do you know that hip openers done out of alignment will indeed make your hips tighter? Feel what it really feels like to open your hips. And come enjoy the pure bliss of back bends when your shoulder blades are plugged in and you lead from the back body. Find freedom in twists when you learn to create space and discover first hand why arm balances are hip openers and should more aptly be called “leg squeezers”. Experience how by treating your side planks and upward dogs as standing poses, you will see stars. And learn how to make every pose therapeutic. Make friends with yoga poses like you never have before.
