These sessions focus on alignment to maximize physical efficiency and ease of movement. Proper alignment is essential to reduce strain and prevent injury. Each session will feature awareness of posture, alignment, and stretching and strengthening both sides of the body equally. It also includes instructions on the use of props, which help students at all levels to practice with greater stability, effectiveness, and ease. 
These classes also give basic understanding of anatomy and alignment, with each session focusing on a specific musculoskeletal group. We then engage these muscles and bones through a variety of asanas (standing poses, twists, hip openers, forward and back bends). The use of props helps students at all levels to develop sensitivity, and practice with greater stability, effectiveness, and ease. Understanding basic anatomy, alignment, and use of props allows practitioners to receive the full benefits of each asana without overextending themselves. Please note these sessions are offered on 2 levels; Level 1 is suitable for those who have never practiced yoga before or have recently started, and Level 2 is for experienced students who have more than 1 or 2 years experience
