1.1 (See all)

In this series of yoga demonstrations, we will learn how to safely and effectively move in and out of each asana (posture), using the pranayama (breath) as our guide. With the teacher/student setting, we can explore the intricacies of correct alignment, and at the same time, observe the options for modifications available in each pose. In our Yoga practice, it is also important to understand how the asana's effect our bodies, as well as when we should and should not approach each posture. A list of benefits, and contraindications accompany each demonstration.

The 26 asana's covered in this application are considered to be intermediate to advanced poses. The postures found here apply to many of the different styles of yoga; Ashtanga, Kundalini, Power, Iyengar, Yin, Moksha, etc, and can be used as a reference for questions pertaining to each style.

Most importantly we wish to emphasize the significance of listening to our breath and our bodies throughout our practice. True understanding of the self can only be found by following and learning to listen to the knowledge and wisdom of our physical being.
