Standing Asanas

Some say just let it feel good. Some tell you exactly what to do and how to do it. Here we will explore student-teacher dialogue, the conversation between student experience and a teacher’s informed guidance, in the context of looking closely at a wide variety of standing postures. We will peer through the prisms functional anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology; inquire about habits and samskaras; discuss conflicting theories regarding alignment, energetic actions, and stress; and consider alternatives ways of offering verbal cues, visual demonstration, and hands-on cues.
