If you have been practicing yoga for a long time, then you will find that this course takes an in-depth look at the benefits of each posture as well as providing tips for alignment and the breath.

By living it yourself, your experience and enthusiasm will be far-reaching. It’s useful to have a good understanding of anatomy and physiology and be prepared to adapt postures where necessary, not every student will be flexible and in full health, so take the time to learn how to adapt specific postures so that the student can still gain the benefits of the pose.
