I don’t teach traditional Yoga but I do implement some Yoga movements into many of my class formats. As a dance educator first and kinesiologist, Tree Pose is just a Passe. Also, it’s just a hip flexion, then hip lateral rotation and knee flexion. I’m focus is just on body alignment, technique…you know the body mechanics of the movement. It’s about increasing body awareness, injury prevention, exercise modification/progression, etc.
It’s great to offer traditional and non-traditional Yoga so that the participants have more exercise options keep them active through their entire lifespan.
