What is Align Yoga?

Align Yoga is a kind of yoga that focuses on the correct alignment of the body. Where we use props to get maximum rewards from every pose by concentrating on the alignment, this is carried out in order to attain improved therapeutic benefits from every session. Alignment is utilized to describe precise positioning of the body for every posture in yoga. Props that are most frequently utilized are Cushions, Yoga straps or belts, Ropes, Benches, Wooden gadgets, Foam Blocks and so forth. Using a yoga strap can help you build yoga confidence by encouraging you to go deeper into familiar postures as well as to try ones you usually find too difficult.

Align Yoga, focusing on simplified asanas (with or without specially designed props) for a variety of illnesses. For diagnosis, Align Yoga partly relies on medical diagnostics and partly on traditional holistic approach.

When you first begin yoga, your sense of what is balanced or aligned may be a bit askew. As you continue to practice and your awareness deepens, your body and mind go through a process of remapping, where you begin to refine your sense of inner alignment and balance. The goal is not only to make the body perfect but to find one's own center and beauty.
