You will learn the purpose of the asana, indication, and contraindications, main muscular engagement, area of release, points of stability and grounding, the effect on the spine, joints, and internal organs. Then you will look at the modifications and tiny changes of alignment and will learn how these changes affect the overall effect of asana and are especially effective on the spine and joints.
In this way, you will create an understanding of asana geometry rather than learn “how it should be” and teach the only possible way without discrimination. Then we will analyze the alignment of asana in an environment of “asana laboratory” where one student performs the pose and other students analyze it according to the information they learned.
After analysis of all the points and offering their cues and adjustments, all students try to perform the asana with an understanding of its geometry, weight distribution, and internal muscle work.
Along with all the yoga practices, you will also get the opportunity to learn vocal (bhajan, kirtans, mantra chanting), nada yoga, and Indian music lessons from the top musicians and nada yoga masters of Rishikesh, India.
