Posture Clinic – 4 week series
4 weeks. 4 basic yoga poses. One chance to live better in your body. Not only does good posture promote confidence and well-being, but it also minimizes the wear and tear that your daily activities can have on your body. This series is designed to give both novice and experienced yoga practitioners a new level of awareness and confidence in their yoga practice – and the way they move their bodies through life.
Each week we will use one key yoga posture as a template to learn about the structure of the human body and its’ optimal ways of moving through space. Mountain. Cobra. Triangle. Downward Facing Dog. These poses have been chosen because though they are considered basic yoga poses, many people find them to be confusing. However, the actions of these poses translate into dozens of other poses. Master these four, and unlock the secrets of most of the commonly practiced yoga poses- and the keys to good posture. Registration available soon.
