Description

In this course you will learn proper alignment of 30 Yoga poses, which I personally believe that are the most common and most useful. Just like with running or playing golf, strong foundation is the key. Alignment is fundamental and helps understand how your body works. Especially when doing your Yoga practice at home, it is very important to apply the principles of proper alignment to avoid possible injuries and get all the benefits that a particuar Yoga pose offers. I recommend you to watch the videos more than once before attempting a certain Yoga pose.
The course is designed for complete beginners, who want to build strong foundation first, or already active Yoga students, who want to know everything about proper alignment. It is NOT however designed for people with ANY health conditions or for Yoga teachers.
After learning the proper alignment of all 30 Yoga poses, you will also learn the proper alignment in Sun Salutations A and B.  And to start, I also included introduction to Yoga and Asana with general notes for students.
Important: Know your body’s limits at all time! We all have different anatomy, so do not get discouraged, if you can not do the pose on the first or tenth or even 100th try; eventually you will get there, with time, patience and practice.

Practice, practice, practice:)
