“Alignment” or “alignment”, what is it?
The use of the term "alignment" or "alignment" (in English alignment) is a relatively new term used in contemporary Yoga teaching and comes particularly from the method developed by BKS Iyengar.Asanas have a specific geometry, with supporting axes that provide a particular shape to the body. The lines will help you find proper alignment, which is beneficial for several reasons.
First of all, proper alignment is essential to avoid injury during practice.
Also, it helps to get the most out of the practice.
