Exploring Alignment in Yoga with Steven Weiss  | sivanandabahamas.org

Exploring Alignment in Yoga with Steven Weiss

Please share what you do in 10-15 words: I explore and teach the relationship between structural alignment and healthy function of the body.

Why do you do what you do? I have been a long time yoga practitioner and doctor of chiropractic. Both fields overlap wonderfully in understanding the therapeutic value of alignment. Yoga has the potential to help many people through the principles and I am committed to bringing that awareness out to as many people as I can.

What are you currently fascinated by in your work? My interest is in developing and refining the principles of yoga alignment into a universal, easily applied system that can be used by every student in every style of practice.

How did you come to your path? Any aha moments or key teachers? As a chiropractor for over 30 years, I have directly seen and worked with on a daily basis, the powerful effect of alignment. Through my personal yoga practice of over 30 years, I have experienced yoga asana as one of the most effective ways to create alignment in the body. BKS Iyengar and those who have developed his work have been my key teachers.

What book(s) are you currently reading? “The Yoga Body” by Mark Singleton and “Twinkie, Deconstructed” by Steve Ettlinger.

Steven Weiss, DC, is a holistic chiropractor and nutritionist, yoga therapist, and yoga teacher. He teaches anatomy, alignment principles, yoga therapeutics, and nutrition for yoga teacher trainings in the United States and worldwide. Dr. Weiss is post-graduate faculty with New York Chiropractic College and is the author of The Injury-Free Yoga Practice, a comprehensive guide to alignment, anatomy, and the prevention of yoga injuries.
