Over 20 hours of study we will look at foundational postures across all categories (standing, seated, backward and forward extension, lateral, inverted) with a keen eye on how the posture can best function as a method for greater physiological stability and mobility. Understandings of “alignment” are ever-changing in the yoga world and we will also discuss why that is. CE credit available for yoga and movement teachers. Recommended pre-workshop reading: Functional Anatomy of Yoga by David Keil.
