Skillful Alignment of Standing Postures

With Karen Andersen and Chris Dunphy

The benefits of a regular and mindful posture practice are numerous and widely accepted by both Eastern and Western health sciences. What is often beneficial and safe for one practitioner may not be suitable for another. This course will help you cultivate a standing posture practice that supports your unique physical alignment needs, with confidence.

The focus will be on standing postures. The learning goals are:

  • Posture as a process
  • Aspects of foundation
  • Spinal alignment and support
  • Muscular integration and extension

This workshop is suitable for those who have a basic experience with common standing postures but want to refine their practice.
