YogaFit's second Anatomy & Alignment training looks even deeper at hatha yoga through the lenses of Base of Support, Center of Gravity, Skeletal Anatomy, and the physiology of stretching. We explore anatomy and kinesiology of, and common misalignments in, shoulder stand/plow, headstand, forearm balance, and crow and its many variations, such as scales pose, firefly, and side crow. Additionally, how direct application of base (Foundation) and centering (moving from larger joints) affect asana and can create more ease in practice. We will also take a deeper look at the subtle anatomy through exploring the chakras, including specific details on the nerves plexes and the glands associated with each chakra as well as looking at the hormones secreted by the various glands and then relating that to poses and their affects. Finally, we will spend time looking at mind-body intention that creates muscle activation and relaxation when holding a pose, and which muscles we can activate or relax in any given pose to move more fully into the full expression of the pose for your body.
