Yogahour (yogahour.com) is a challenging hatha flow practice that offers clear and specific alignment instructions to express and experience the postures safely and with strength.
The postures in Yogahour are the same as those found in other Hatha and Flow classes, but the sequencing and alignment cues are flat-out brilliant. With care and attention, limitations become invitations to explore in a safe and supportive environment created through shape, safety, and refinement. Boundaries between you and what you thought was possible dissolve, as difficult poses becomes doable. The key to progress is not just mechanical repetition, but active corrective attention, tweaking the poses and adjusting their execution over and over to improve form and continue to derive the most benefits from our practice. The precise alignment cues in Yogahour are key to maintaining focus on actively refining the postures. And the fast pace of Yogahour classes allow for an experience of Yoga unlike any other, as fast becomes flow.
In this workshop, we will slow things down significantly to maximize absorption and prepare you for the next level in your practice. This is not just a long practice. We will break things down into easily-understood pieces – be prepared to take notes. You will learn Basic Alignment Principles for all categories of poses: standing, seated, forward folds, backbends, twists, arm balances, prone, supine, and core strengthening. You will be able to apply what you learn in this workshop to every class, in every style, from every tradition, ensuring you will continue to grow beyond proficiency level, whatever your preferred practice.
