Putting it all together

Working with the poses to get correct alignment to maximize meridian activation

How the body works – nerve reflexes, activating opposing muscles, PNF stretching etc.

  • Relaxing the spine, techniques to improve flexibility faster

  • Opening the hips using opposing forces                                              and more…


Take your yoga teaching to the next level.  It’s great to work our meridians, but when you know that while stretching your stomach meridian, you can also stretch your psoas muscle, which has a strong relationship to your kidney, your fear reflexes and your hormone flow and by knowing where the psoas originates and inserts in the body, you can access it and release it much more effectively!!   Learn lots of similar tricks with other parts of the body to go further in your teaching abilities and the results you achieve.


If we understand the way muscles work, we have more chance of releasing them, which also gives us more access to our poses and the meridians!!!
