~ To delve deeply into our structural and bio-mechanical anatomy possibilities, identifying exactly how all these differences play out within our Vinyasa postures within a dynamic practice.
~ To breakdown and analyze Vinyasa postures functionally, asking what each posture practically addresses, what could be more efficient, and most importantly, what is safe.
~ To strip back the layers of a pre-conceived alignment one size fits all approach and really delve into seeing, understanding and therefore effectively practicing and teaching what is appropriate for the individual.
