Going Forward, Going Backwards –
Functional Alignment in Yin Yoga and Beyond

We are often taught that if we have difficulty getting into a yoga posture that the primary reason is because we are tight. Our muscles and soft tissues are holding tension, which is preventing us from going further. But this is only half the story.
Ultimately one’s range of motion in a posture and one’s optimal alignment in a pose are determined by the unique shape of our bones, not by soft tissue resistance.
In this workshop, Josh will look closely at the implications that skeletal variation has on our ability to go into forward folds and into backbends. From this more nuanced understanding of, he will guide you through a Yin Yoga sequence focusing on the spine to help clarify the concept of skeletal variation with direct experience.
Suitable for all levels.
