What Is Alignment Based Yoga and Why Choose It?

Alignment based yoga focuses on performing yoga poses with attention to the proper alignment of our musculoskeletal system (our muscles and bones together) in order to maximize the benefits of the poses and minimize risk of injury. When we perform yoga poses with attention musculoskeletal alignment, we can relieve, and even correct, patterns in the body that can cause pain and deterioration.
