Yet, asana practice has been a common cause of injury, specifically when practiced with a limited understanding of alignment and body mechanics. An important realization is that asana have their outer forms while the inner body mechanics that create the poses are often contrary in action. The question to ask oneself is whether you know the anatomically correct way to move every part of the body, in every pose, every time!
Join Dr. Steven Weiss, chiropractor and certified yoga therapist in this comprehensive exploration of the body and its actions in asana. The workshop presents easy-to-understand principles that are based on our anatomy while taught completely from a yogic perspective. This three-hour program is comprehensive, not lecture-focused, but fully experiential. It's guaranteed to be interesting and fun!
This presentation does not teach or advocate a specific yoga style or system. The goal is to bring this essential and fundamental information to practitioners of all traditions, from Yin to Vinyasa. The principles that are presented are based on our anatomy and physiology and therefore will apply to all exercise approaches, sports, work, and other physical activities.
