What is Hot YogAlign with Joe?

It is a whole new approach to asana and it is wonderful because people change their posture from the first class and nobody has to touch their toes or force their spine to perform right angle or linear based poses that have nothing to do with the way our body is designed to move.

YogAlign is very scientific, which is very different than 'tradtional yoga.' It is about postural alignment not pose alignment which takes us to where we live; in our amazing bodies! We focus mainly on Deep Rib Cage "Core" breathing with natural body alignment, maintaining our four Spinal Curves.

These poses are functional movement exercises, which mimic how the body naturally moves. We avoid any poses that puts the body in a right angle, which puts pressure on the sacrum. That is why sitting in a chair makes your back stiff and sore. We were born to move not sit!

We offer a self-healing approach of the body with self-massage before strengthening and stretching the body. We discourage forcing the body into poses. We work with the SIP Breath and our minds to allow the muscles to lengthen and relax.

We do not believe in using force, we practice Ahimsa, compassion and caring to gently and intelligently transform ourselves.

A 75 minute session in a heated room promotes sweating and makes the body very warm, relaxed and therefore, naturally more flexible and strong. The heat and humidity creates a Spa-like atmosphere. At the end of the session you will feel aligned, with your body moving and breathing with less effort, less tension, and no PAIN! So, you can have your kid-like flexibility back! We want your whole mind and body involved in this process, not parts.

Aloha & Namaste -- Joe
