Aligned postures are fundamental to achieving this while increasing health and vitality. Correctly aligning asanas unleash the wisdom and healing power of yoga. Alignment begins with knowledge and is followed by its application into our postures.

The specific principles of postural mechanics and alignment are explored using cutting edge application of anatomy and exercise physiology. Yet, all concepts and principle remain consistent with classical yogic philosophy.
