Alignment Matters

You probably know that posture is important. And yes, the way you sit, stand, and move will affect the curvature of your spine.

๐Ÿ‘‰ If you are sitting a lot every day for a long period of time, it changes the curvature of your spine.

๐Ÿ‘‰ If you always slouch and round your back, it changes the curvature of your spine.

๐Ÿ‘‰ If you always carry a heavy shoulder back, it changes the curvature of your spine.

A doctor can tell from a radiograph whether someone sits at a desk for a living.

In the first 7 years of motherhood, I held my babies in the same position which caused my back to lopsidedly tilt to the right. ๐Ÿ˜”

And thatโ€™s the same with yoga.

If each time you do the pose you donโ€™t align your body properly, you will get more and more misaligned.

Thatโ€™s why alignment matters. ๐Ÿ™Œ

And by understanding the principles of alignment and apply to every single posture you practice every day a little bit at a time in the long term, you can re-align your body.

Yes, there is structural misalignment, which we will also learn that itโ€™s part of us that may not be โ€œ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜น๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅโ€.

In this case, we learn to work with them and make our bodies more balanced through awareness and practice.

In most cases, postural misalignments are caused by habits, which can be changed. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be teaching Alignment classes again, where we will learn about alignments, as well as how to apply appropriate and skillful actions to our postures, resulting in a more balanced, aligned body, as well as a more aligned mind.
