Alignment Based Yoga
1 hour and 15 minutes
Our Alignment Yoga classes focus deeply on precise and optimal placement and engagement in the asanas. If you appreciate the principles of Iyengar Yoga, then this is for you. If you want to understand how your body works, and how you can teach it to work better, then this is the class for you!
Postures, as well as sequencing are done with a progressive goal or anatomy focus. One class may focus on legs/foundation. Or it could be a focus on twists, backbends. How do your feet work(or not work) in asana…you get the idea.
Anatomically correct positioning is often supported with props such as blocks, straps and blankets. We begin to understand what it takes to engage the muscles, in the right spots, in the right way.
Prepare to work hard, but gently…if you can imagine that! Experience another level of mental focus as you go deep into details.
Alignment Based Yoga can provide therapeutics aspects, preventing and healing injuries in Beginner to Advanced Yogis or Athletes or anyone who wants to develop an understanding of how your muscles, joints and bones work.
Every body has different limitations and strengths; This class will help you to understand how to work with yours.
With exploration and experiential knowledge you will build strength and flexibility in an integrated and conscious way.
Taking this information into your body and to your other classes as well as activities off the mat can be life changing!

Early for Class?
Lobby opens 15 minutes before class so that we have practice and prep time. Please be patient while we get ourselves and our space ready for you.
Late to Class?
If you are more than 10 minutes late for class, you will not be admitted into the classroom.This is first, for your own safety, and secondly, in consideration of the other students’ practice; It is distracting to them and to the teacher. If there is no one at the desk, you will find the lobby doors locked.
