Explore feet and hand support relationships, principles of skeletal symmetry, muscle balance/imbalance.
Demonstrate functional joint centration during static and dynamic loading.
Demonstrate working in open and closed kinetic chains.
Correcting dysfunctional patterns with coordinated co-contraction of antagonists.
Demonstrate an understanding of indications, contraindications, and modifications for patients.
Practicing variations of Pranayama.
DNS Yoga 2:
Foot mobilisations in supporting function.
Isolated movement patterns of the hip in unloaded positions.
Isolated movement patterns of the hip in loaded positions.
Transitions in yoga asanas, linking developmental ontogenisis for hip mobility and stability.
Pranayama-Role of the lower abdominal wall.
Movement patterns of hip joint in differentiated and undifferentiated seated positions.
Muscle pulls relating to actions of the hip.
Isolated Hip Extension in yoga asanas.
Flow Class – review of movement patterns of the hip for mobility and stability.
Rehabilitative perspective of Pranayama.
DNS Yoga 3:
Upper extremity and shoulder girdle function, kinesiology and muscle synergy
Shoulder girdle disorders, including muscle imbalances and common yoga injuries
Isolated movement patterns of the shoulder in loaded positions – closed kinetic chains
Isolated movement patterns of the shoulder in unloaded positions – open kinetic chains

DNS Yoga 4:
The foundations of physiological movement and application to asana practice.
Function, kinesiology, load transfer and muscle synkinesis of the spine
Spinal disorders, including muscle imbalances and common yoga injuries of the spine
Importance of diaphragm and pelvic floor function in spinal stability and relationship to activation of bandhas in asanas
