This module will take postural “alignment” to a deeper dimension, beyond the physical shapes and structure and into a realm of energy, metaphors, creativity, therapy and healing. The postures (asanas) are the embodiment of life; love, faith, joy, fear, shame, guilt etc. This weekend will approach the practice of Asana as a celebration of the human body; all shapes, sizes and ages. Special attention will be given to those postures with therapeutic application and their modifications as we apply the anatomical and energetic knowledge from the previous modules. Students will also gain an understanding of each asanas metaphysical significance and how this information can be used to support the healing process. Precautions, contraindications, physical benefits, props and variations will be discussed and practiced in great detail.
Students will gain an in depth knowledge of and a demonstrated ability to instruct and various asanas and their variations and modifications according to the students/ clients needs and goals.
Students will gain an in-depth knowledge of the range of yoga practices and their potential therapeutic effects for common conditions.
Students will gain knowledge of folklore, myths and metaphors and how they can be used to encourage introspection.
