What is Alignment Yoga?
The goal of Alignment Yoga is to faithfully import the essence of yoga while understanding the cultural differences. With this understanding, we can enjoy the full benefits of this rewarding path. Scott Anderson founded this unique approach after studying with several great Hatha Yoga masters, extensive studies of biomechanics, and a half-dozen trips to India.
"Scott Anderson's deep knowledge of the human body, combined with his systematic, folksy and spiritual approach to teaching make this an irresistible choice for anyone interested in cultivating body-mind integration. Scott is a master teacher who conveys the practice with clarity, wisdom and humor. I have been around many teachers of Hatha Yoga in my career and Scott is by far the most gifted."
