Yoga Teacher Training Asana Labs

What are “Asana Labs?”

As yogis, we aim to move from intention with a deeper purpose and understanding. If our aim is to think more clearly, breathe more effortlessly, and move more efficiently, then we should begin with awareness and move from that space. Through these videos, we aim to offer you an understanding of the “why” behind the asanas, so you can use them intelligently in your vinyasa practices. Each video will break down:

The name of the pose in English & in Sanskrit

The main purpose of the pose

The main alignments in the body for safety & efficiency

How does it work?

Watch the videos once all the way through as a visual learning experience, focusing on observing the alignment cues and body positioning. Then, replay the video and practice the poses with the alignment cues offered to have an embodied experience of how it feels in your body today.
Remember, alignment is meant to offer a way to FEEL in the pose, so might use different words to create activation or length in the body, but the purpose behind the cues and alignment is always: BALANCE. Keep in mind that we’re always aiming for strength without rigidity, and flexibility without instability.
