YOGA LAB: Critical Alignment (1)
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Certified Critical Alignment Yoga Instructor Iekelien Buurman for a workshop focusing on creating mobility, releasing tension and functional movement in our spines. With the use of specific props, we will move through a series of yoga exercises together. All levels welcome. You will leave this workshop feeling taller and lighter.
“The primary goal of Critical Alignment Yoga (CAT) is to mobilize and align the spinal column, restoring crucial mobility, balance and spaciousness to the rest of the body while freeing emotions and introducing a lighter, more meditative consciousness into daily life.” – Gert VanLeeuwen, Founder of CAT Yoga.

A good life starts in the spine!
The primary goal of Critical Alignment Yoga (CAY) is to mobilize and align the spinal column, restoring crucial mobility, balance and spaciousness to the rest of the body while freeing emotions and introducing a lighter, more meditative consciousness into daily life.
Over time, we all become increasingly crooked, as residual tensions slowly push and pull heads, necks and backs out of alignment. We take these tensions with us to work, and they are there when we socialize, sleep, or exercise. Our back and neck accompany us everywhere and their unconscious patterns of holding ensure that we continuously operate in a state of tension, regardless of what we may be doing. Even when we are doing yoga.
Through Critical Alignment Yoga, students discover how stiffness and a lack of stability in the back influence body and behavior, in yoga and daily life. The precision with which CAY isolates and identifies the physical source of problems, in turn brings students face to face with the ambitions and negative emotional patterns underlying their pain and tension.
