Alignment Based Yoga
Just as Synergy Integrative Health is focused on treating the individual, this style of yoga will guide students through postures at their pace, with a focus on optimal alignment for each student in the class. Back Pain? Shoulder Pain? Tension in your neck? Everyday misalignment caused by “forward posture” sitting at a computer, driving, etc, can cause pain and discomfort throughout the body. Our busy days running from one thing to the next can sometimes take our minds from what matters most, causing various discomforts or anxiety.
A yoga practice can help bring mind and body into a more neutral and settled place. From there we feel grounded, steady, and more open to lifeʼs challenges. Yoga means “to yoke,” or “union” of mind, body, and spirit. When we take time to connect all parts of ourselves, we are able to identify our most genuine and joyful self, and from there, are also best prepared to be there for our loved ones.
So what does a class “look” like? In this semi-private yoga setting, the teacher is able to give close attention to each studentʼs needs. Students will be led step by step into poses that will build strength and power, as well as ﬂexibility and opening. The poses you may see in magazines and books are just examples of the possibilities of what yoga has to offer, but is certainly not necessarily the “goal!” The intention is up to you, but from the eyes of the teacher, the classʼs focus will be on studentsʼ individual expressions to their fullest potential. With a focus on alignment and awareness of breath, sessions are highly therapeutic and centering. Questions are encouraged and all levels are welcomed.
Come with curiosity and an open heart and the yoga will help you align with your greatest self.
