Fundamentals 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 2-hour 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.
"I attended Meighlin's Foundational Skills Course last year to enhance my practice. Meighlin provided a safe space and a wealth of knowledge in which to go deeper into each of the various poses teaching the origins, and also how to hold and be aware during the poses. I remember feeling uplifted and stronger. During one of her next Hatha yoga sessions, I effortlessly did a lot of the more challenging balancing poses with ease and full awareness - and a huge smile on my face. I highly recommend any of her teachings, as she truly comes from a place of love and acceptance." S.S
"Meighlin's Foundational Workshop was awesome! As a frequent student of Meighlin's Hatha classes, I found I learned 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." -Jess Pirnak
