OPTIMAL ALIGNMENT AND BEYOND with Dipa Sara Meeks & Bhavani Lorraine Nelson People with many different physical capabilities, challenges and conditions are coming into Yoga classes today. This can be a “good thing” as Yoga is made available to more people. However, the focus of many Yoga classes appears to be primarily on Asana (physical posture) and thus participants do not have the opportunity to learn about and integrate some of the other limbs of Yoga (e.g., Pranayama, Dharana, and Dhyana) into their practice. Also, many people have years of compensatory and pathological movement patterns as a result of accidents, injuries, illnesses, personality types, belief systems, habitual movement patterns and lifestyle choices. Yoga instruction is then modified to accommodate their needs. Again, this can be a “good thing” if the accommodation is anatomically and kinesiologically sound. If, however, the approach is not sound, it can possibly lead to injury and/or a feeling of dissatisfaction as people are unable to do postures as they would like to do them. An alternative approach would be to teach them to consciously initiate and move into postures in a more anatomically-optimal alignment. This approach is in direct contrast to an approach that allows people to initiate movement in their areas of greatest flexibility and to then move into the posture however they can. The approach in this program would foster greater safety, concentration, flexibility, and strength. Even if participants are unable to come into the full expression of the posture as they know it or as they have seen the teacher do it, they will get more out of it by honoring their own body and maintaining optimal alignment as far as they can. This is not the same as instructing them to feel what is going on in their body; it is, rather, teaching them to concentrate and pay attention to alignment. In this way they will get more out of the posture as they understand and accept any limitations they may have. Combining other aspects of Yoga practice (the 8 limbs of Pantanjali) can lead to a more complete experience of the postures.
