Move Your DNA Alignment and Natural Movement On and Off the Mat

For mat-based movement teachers and exercisers.

There’s a growing awareness that alignment is important in the assessment and effectiveness of exercise. But exercise and alignment alone are not enough movement for well-being. Alignment is more than the orientation of your bones and joints—it is bigger than your body parts. Body alignment, like car alignment, includes the amount you’re “driving” your body each day. It can even include the terrain you’re moving over. Join Katy Bowman for an exploration of how alignment on and beyond the mat is vital to the effectiveness of any exercise program.

Katy wants you to leave feeling stronger and capable of getting more movement in your life. In this program, she combines indoor mat work with outdoor movement time and you to what she calls “vitamin texture” via barefoot and on-earth exercise. Expand your understanding of alignment and natural movement, increasing the complexity and effectiveness of your mat work. With this knowledge, mat-based movement teachers can begin to offer more diversity in their classes, including elements of natural movement, even in a mat-based context.
