Alignment Lab

A 3-Part Workshop Series With Jill Baker

Jill Baker shines a light on your Sun Salutations with this workshop series that slows down your Vinyasa practice to refine some common yoga poses.

We come to yoga for relief from many of life's ailments. When practiced with proper alignment, yoga can build strength and create more freedom and ease in the mind body and spirit. But all too often daily stresses. trauma or injury cause us to disconnect with our bodies.

This can create unbalanced and inefficient movement patterns in the body, which can increase tension, strain and injury instead of relieving it. With mindful and creative movement, we'll feel what it is like to truly present in our bodies and break down common yoga poses that helps keep our bodies safe, supple and strong.

These classes are great for those newer to yoga as well as those with experience under their belts.

Aligning with the Sun: January 12th- Refining the poses and transitions for Sun Salutations. The sun salutation, or Surya Namaskar, is the foundation of any Vinyasa Yoga class. When done mindfully, it can strengthen and stretch the body in preparation for more demanding postures to come. We’ll examine proper alignment and possible modifications for the poses of Surya Namaskar A and B, including that pesky Chaturanga Dandasana, as well as looking at how to safely and smoothly transition between poses.

Taking Flight into Crow: February 16th- Are you working on lifting off into crow? We’ll break down this arm balance and practice opening and strengthening the body to take flight in Crow, Side Crow and some other fun variations.

Working into Wheel: March 9th- Wheel or Urdhva Dhanurasana, is a deep backbend that was probably accessible to you as a child. As we age we lose some of that natural flexibility and mobility. We will work on opening the front body and strengthening the back as we work towards this uplifting heart-opener.
