What is alignment of the human body?
How can I benefit from a yoga class?
Alignment is an aspect of homeostasis. When joints are stacked and muscles have little to do with maintaining joint alignment, in other words muscles are as relaxed as possible. This is the case in standing as well as seated poses.
Muscle are recruited when we want to move, that is the simple explanation: it becomes more complicated when our muscles become strained and weakened as a result of habitual misalignment. We must then peel the human onion and return the body to its original relaxed state, devoid of habits such as sitting with our lumbar spine pushed into the chair back which destabilizes it, or standing with our knees hyper-extended, just to name 2 habits influenced by our modern culture.
Align Your Spine is a 90 minute Hatha Flow Yoga class to warm the body. I sequence fewer asymmetrical poses that may strain an already weakened sacrum and lumbar spine.
The flow is slower, the result is a real connection with your body via sensation. Once the reconnect occurs, you the practitioner investigate the sensation. You will usually discover what movements are creating misalignment and pain.
This is not a gentle class and it is advised that experienced practitioners attend: at least a level 2 meaning that you have been practicing for at least 2 years.
