The Essence of Asana | A 50-hour YTT Immersion

Why do we practice asanas? How do we make the practice accessible yet challenging enough to hold our attention?

This deep dive into the asanas looks at the anatomy involved in each posture, determining how to tease out the vital essence of the asana. This foundation allows us to see how to make the asana accessible and engaging to everyone, from the one who is challenged to the one who can do the posture with ease. Discover the rainbow of variations that exists for the postures and learn how to adapt the postures for different bodies and different styles of yoga. Most importantly, attune to what version of the posture is right in the very moment for you and others as you learn to read the lines of the body and bring forth the essence of the asana.
