Shape, Safety, and Refinement Instructions for over 200 poses in the yogahour® syllabus.
How Shape, Safety, and Refinement Instructions Inform Flow
Shape: Shape instructions efficiently and effectively get students into and out of the basic form of each pose.
Safety (strength): Safety instructions create stability and reduce risk of injury.
Refinement (stretch): Refinement instructions stretch the pose, enhance awareness, and add nuance.
Prep/Pose: Prep is part and parcel to each pose. Knowing where each pose starts and stops promotes clarity, safety, and sets the practitioner up for success.
Sutra-like vernacular: A sutra is a concentrated teaching presented in the most succinct statement possible. To maximize accessibility, yogahour uses sutra-like vernacular.
