Alignment Begins With Freeing the Breathing Process
Alignment is important in yoga & the poses we do should be consistent with good posture & good alignment. Good alignment should be practiced in all of our daily activities - both in your yoga practice & beyond the yoga mat. Becoming aware of how we use our body from moment to moment is the key to being well-aligned & pain-free. The ideal yoga practice enables one to create a state of presence in all actions of every movement.
Alignment, to a great degree, is dictated by how we are breathing. Shallow breathing creates poor posture. Deep-centred breathing aligns us in a natural position. In YogAlign, we emphasise that it's not what we're doing, but how we are breathing when we're doing it, that determines postural balance & quality of movement. YogAlign teaches us to have truly functional breathing skills, not just in our yoga practice or exercise positions, but in every way we use our body all day long. Using the movements of deep breathing, we can align ourselves from the inside out. The emphasis & intention of each pose in the YogAlign method is to practice functional body positions that empower our ability to move efficiently & breathe deeply. This supports our body's natural alignment & fosters function, ease, & comfort in our daily life.
