Alignment Based Yoga

The body is a sunning expression of geometry and taking your knowledge of alignment to an advanced level will enable you to work with new and advanced students alike in a far more specific way. The electives offered in this major will allow you to refine your eye, offer profound and dynamic adjustments, and targeted modifications for students working with injures and other limitations. You will also learn to use props to support students at all levels of practice to reach a much deeper understanding of each pose.
