Practicing yoga helps the body maintain its complex balance, which boosts the capacity for self-healing. Asanas promote health by taking the body through a broad range of movements; ensuring strength and length of muscles. An understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of some these movements is a useful tool for your own personal asana practice.
Anatomy of the asanas; how muscles are connected via anatomy trains/myofascial meridians
Biomechanics of back and hips; basics of posture, how to look after your hips, how to sit better, what causes back pain?
Biomechanics of shoulders and knees; anatomy of the joints, asana modification to prevent joint pain.
The rest of the day follows the yoga vacation daily schedule.
