Yoga asana & Vinyasa curriculum

The asana study program includes postures of the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga, presented in a traditional, yet non-dogmatic way. There is an overview of forward + backward bending, twists + side bends and inversions, including arm balances. In addition, healthy adaptations and modifications, including therapeutic sequencing based on current physical therapy protocols.

Students learn alignment in postures based on applied anatomy practices including self-adjustment and learning to “see” students’ bodies. The language of modern yoga alignment including loops, rotations, pose and counter pose are taught and with this knowledge, the student knows how to prevent their students from asana vulnerabilities and keep them practice yoga safely.

  • Yoga anatomy & alignment – in-depth study of functional movement in yoga
  • Yoga therapy, adaptive yoga, prop work & restoratives
