ALIGNMENT WORKSHOP STANDING POSES part 2
Third, from the series of the event “Asana Alignment Workshop” led by the founder of Vrkira Yoga Studio, Agnieszka Pieterwas
Alignment is the term we use in yoga to describe the precise way to do any given pose in order to maximize its benefits and minimize the risk of injury.
Alignment is intended to create a stable foundation for a safe practice, to allow the body to open in new ways, and to reduce the risk of injury. While you might not feel a sudden, sharp pain from doing a pose out of alignment, many injuries are cumulative, accruing little by little. Wear and tear on joints and supporting tissues happens over time. It applies to any activity requiring putting body into specific shape and form.
Props in yoga practice are intended to help yogis practice with good alignment instead of compromising their form.
At the Standing Poses Alignment Workshop we will break down and work on Tāḍāsana, Utthita-Trikoṇāsana, Vīrabhadrāsana 1,2 and 3, Utthita-Pārśvakoṇāsana, Pārśvottānāsana, Utkaṭāsana, Vṛkṣāsana, Pādahastāsana, Pādāṅguṣṭhāsana, Utthita-Hasta-Pādāṅguṣṭhāsana, Prasārita-Pādottānāsana, Ardha-Candrāsana
Come! Space is limited to 10 spots.
