The body is a continuous whole and far more than the sum of its parts, more than simply a collection of levers, struts, ropes, and cables. Therefore, a biomechanical view of the human form is useful and will make you understand your own body better. We investigate each segment and its form. In other words, its architecture, bones, joint capsules, ligaments, fascia, and muscles. Then we look at the function of the spinal segment and the implications of this functionality within the rest of the body through our yoga therapeutical approach.
Our intention is to optimize spinal health, and this implies a functional approach to yoga. Each yoga pose has a reason for being done, an intention. A functional approach to yoga will lead to regaining or maintaining health. One of the great gifts of yoga is the ability to attend, to notice what is happening, right now, right here, in your body, in your heart and in your mind. The progress within your body may be psychological, emotional, or purely physical.
Everyone has limits beyond which they cannot go. Therefore, one must take into consideration the physical and emotional shape of your own body. A specific and therapeutic approach is required because everyone is unique. We have different bodies that respond differently to movement and exercise. Yoga exercises and programs are tools to achieve health goals in an efficient and healthful way. We offer specific programs for everyone because no two people will optimize their health goals with the same program.
Spine stability is needed before mobility. There must be first muscular control. We offer many anatomical variations and devise specific yoga programs to suit every individual.
