•Balanced yoga is defined by being in Balanced alignment. It is different from other yoga because of the alignment of the bones. This alignment is taught in all the poses: standing, forward bending, back bending, twisting, reclining.

•Balanced yoga emphasizes relaxation, there is no struggle. You will reduce stress. You will learn to distinguish between tension and relaxation.

•You will become more aware of your alignment, your tensions, and you will know what to do about it.

•Balanced yoga is pain free . You'll learn to do yoga that is completely safe for the spine, and joints.

•Expect to first recover from spinal and joint injuries and then to gain strength and flexibility. With persistence your spine will straighten.

•Since Balanced alignment is the alignment of people thousands of years ago it is the way yoga was done originally. Balanced yoga is traditional, it is how the ancients practiced.

•Balanced alignment benefits your health. The bones will align as they are designed to, taking stress off the joints and the bones. When the bones are aligned naturally there is the appropriate space for your vital organs and the nervous system. When the bones align naturally the muscles are at their natural length. All parts of your body will be in their optimal positions.

  Balance has been good to me. I played hard all last year without injury and that got me a scholarship at Menlo College!
