The Principles of Alignment with Jen Kentrup
15-17 May The Centrium – Central
This workshop will introduce The Principles of Alignment, which serve as a foundation to classical asana practice. Time tested, the principles of alignment are a gateway into a deeper understanding of how to move the body within the practice as a whole, as well as within individual poses. When applied, the alignment principles create sharp focus in the mind resulting in clarity, stability and freedom in the body.
**This workshop is recommended for students planning to take The Foundation teacher training with Patrick Creelman.
This workshop will be a total of 10 hours over 3 days and will count as Yoga Alliance CET hours.
Session 1: 15 May 7:00pm – 9:00pm (Friday)
We begin by asking the questions "What is alignment yoga? Why should we practise it? How can it help us?" We look at The First Principle, and at the body as a whole, to reveal how despite the fact that we are all different, the alignment practice is universal.
Session 2: 16 May 10:00am – 12:00pm (Saturday)
We look at how Muscular Energy (the second principle) works to create greater stability.
Session 3: 16 May 1:30pm – 3:30pm (Saturday)
We look more closely at the refined movements of the pelvis and lower back, resulting in more focus and greater body awareness.
Session 4: 17 May 10:00am – 12:00pm (Sunday)
We work with the balanced action of Inner Spiral and Outer Spiral to resolve low back pain, to find better posture (both on and off the mat), and to find greater freedom in back bends.
Session 5: 17 May 1:30pm – 3:30pm (Sunday)
We put together all the alignment principles, adding Organic Extension (5th principle) as the final component to the other 4. This final principle can be paraphrased as the “Wow Principle.” It is the action of the full expansiveness of a pose. On this last day, we practise with the intent to find the “wow” moment within a pose.
