Is Alignment Important?

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

In every class, there will be some alignment instructions. However, the objective is different when the FOCUS is in Alignment.

In a Vinyasa class, the FOCUS is the dynamic nature of the practice to the fluidity – move with the breath. Alignment is not the primary objective. Hence, fewer alignment instructions.

The FOCUS of Alignment is on the DETAILS. Poses are held for a longer period of time. Teachers have more time to explain the ACTIONS within the postures. Students have more opportunities to observe and adjust their postures

First, it’s the basic form – the shape.

⚡ How does the pose look like? ⚡ How do you get in and out of it?

Then it’s the details – the actions within the poses.

👉 How do you align the bones in these postures? 👉 What are the directions of the bones moving? 👉 What part of the body is engaging? 👉 What part of the body is lengthening?

Instead of making shapes, we explore the biomechanics of the body – the application of mechanical principles to the human body; understanding how bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves work together in our yoga practice.
