Structural Alignment Therapy vs Holistic Medical Approach - Part 1
September 20, 2014
This is a new series based on my discoveries as I make my way through four years of osteopath school.
Firstly, I am giddy with excitement about all this learning and deepening my knowledge of anatomy, physiology and manual therapy.
So far, what I have discovered is, the more in-depth I go into anatomy and physiology, the more I appreciate and understand the therapeutic value of yoga and yoga therapy.
I am perhaps especially eager to see how and why the Universal Principles of Alignment™ of Anusara Yoga as far as biomechanics are so effective. I am also eager to see how the concept that "yoga therapy begins from the inside-out" might be tangilble from a medical-scientific perspective. For readers who are not familiar with the Universal Principles of Alignment, instead of using the UPA terminology I will use common anatomical and/or spiritual terms.
I am deeply grateful I am to all my teachers - past and present.
