Ashtanga Yoga Alignment and Adustment Workshop
Available at Punyah Yoga Each Month

Body Adjustment and Alignment are very important as modern day living has upset our body posture to a great extent.

More recently, we have acquired many luxuries and live in an environment that is slowly damaging our breathing patterns, postures and overall health. Traditionally, people did not have the luxury of a well cushioned sofa, numerous pillows, fancy upholstered chairs and thick mattresses on our beds — people used to sit with crossed legs and slept on hard surfaces that kept their postures and made the spine straight. Not only do we not have the availability of fresh air we used to have decades back, we have forgotten how to breathe properly! When breath is ‘lacking’, many emotions are held at the surface. Our Prana will not move into a deeper state so we cannot breathe properly.

Proper posture keeps the body young and healthy and proper breathing is also an important one to note. Therefore, the role of Body Adjustment and Alignment is more important than ever. Using this tool gives us a better understanding of our body by boosting mindfulness and awareness. It helps our energy to flow freely and equally into our body. By practising under a master, they can help you recognise the energies of the body, expand your breathing pattern, unlock body awareness and help you in your asana practice.

This course runs during the first two weeks of every month. Practitioners who enrol for this program must start from 1-7th and 8-15th.
