Injury, aging, and repetitive activities can cause skeletal misalignment that triggers compensatory symptoms and dysfunctional movement throughout the body. In this workshop, we will examine the musculoskeletal alignment of the Mountain posture (Tadasana), the foundational pose of yoga.
Referring to the skeletal structure and joints, we will look at how this remarkable natural architecture supports us to feel balanced, stable and free. As a result of this uncomplicated and fundamental review of the “principles of standing”, you will be guided through an experience of stacking your bones directly on top of one other from the ground up to sense the ease and steadiness of what happens when you find the healthy alignment for your individual bone structure.
We will crack the code of postural alignment so you can easily apply these principles in your yoga practice on and off the mat. Whether you are a teacher of yoga, a yoga practitioner, or simply like to stand for hours, these principles will enhance your awareness of how your natural frame functions, thereby enabling you to self-assess common misalignment.
At the end of the session, there will be time for questions to gain insight and share our discoveries regarding your personal exploration of alignment.
