The bulk of the course will be on physical adjusting. How to physically adjust, where to touch, when not to adjust. What works for some students may not work for others and why. We will be using props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps as well to help students get into the most comfortable or better-aligned poses. We will spend time on the abdominal and core area of the body making sure the bandhas are activated and discuss softness and relaxation in asanas to find comfort. We will go through a long list of poses from the Ashtanga Primary Series as well as variations on those poses.
