This subject introduces the asanas and the movement principles that underlie their structure. Through physical and theoretical practice, questioning and discussion, students engage in exploration of the principles and key concepts of movement, breath and posture delivery. Learning how asanas relate to one another and to their wider family groups. If yoga methodology is the heart beat, the asana are the blood of the Yogis practice. Practice and learn the key poses in each category of asana; standing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions. Understand the alignment maps for each of the five families of asanas and through observation and experience learn how the poses in each category share a common foundation.

I am so thankful that I followed my instinct to enroll in YTT at Yoga & Health Collective – I would go so far as to say it has been transformative in my life, it has definately changed aspects of me, my family, my priorities and where I am heading quite dramatically (and positively) including in totally unrelated areas such as within my career.
