Foundations of Yoga
Knowing the correct alignment of an asana is important for safely placing the body in a way that protects the joints, provides a solid foundation for asana variations and allows a natural progression that supports and nourishes the body and mind, rather than fatiguing it. Why does an asana feel awkward or uncomfortable? Why does a particular pose seem so inaccessible? I created the Foundational Yoga Workshop to answer these questions.
‘Asana’ translates in Sanskrit as ‘a comfortable, easy position’. When the body is aligned one’s physiology is more efficient and performs more effectively. It requires more energy to hold one’s body out of alignment. Issues resulting from the compensation of different muscle groups to maintain a particular position. This workshop will provide you with a solid foundation and an understanding of proper alignment, to gain greater strength and flexibility while maintaining the necessary balance in each asana, to progress in your yoga practice.
"Meighlin's Foundational Workshop was awesome! As a frequent student of Meighlin's Hatha classes, I found I learnt a ton from her during this workshop. Meighlin is a wonderful yoga teacher and to be able to ask her questions during class and to receive personal suggestions and corrections were priceless for someone who is looking to deepen their yoga practice."
"Thank you so much for your guidance and wisdom through these weeks. For me it was a journey with lots of learning along the way. It gave me a different view of how I see my yoga practice now. I just assumed I could only go so far, but when you mentioned trying this or that I was surprised I could actually do it. Thanks again for your light and teachings."
"Thank-you for your workshop. It was the most interesting! I learned a lot and enjoyed it. You are an amazing yoga teacher, so kind and understanding."
This workshop covers the alignment principles of specific asana so that you can develop a solid and sustainable yoga practice. The principles of alignment provide you with the stability essential for various intermediate variations of asana.
