Yoga Deconstructed®
by Trina Altman

Creative Corrective Exercises to Enhance Your Practice and Improve Your Teaching.

Think of Yoga Deconstructed® as a Dynamic Expansion of Traditional Asana

Deconstructing a yoga pose by methodically investigating what is happening joint by joint, in each plane of motion, takes you on a creative journey, filled with endless, playful, and purposeful possibilities. By blending yoga, corrective exercise, Pilates, somatics, and modern movement science, Yoga Deconstructed® helps you stay injury-free while improving your strength, mobility, coordination, and overall well-being.

By incorporating variability, you can free yourself from the “autopilot box” that many traditional practices RELY ON.

Demystify the inner layers of your body to reveal the infrastructure of asana.

Arm yourself with the knowledge to heal by uncovering kinesthetic “clues” about your daily movement that could be creating pain.

Prevent repetitive stress injuries by adding strength and stability components within familiar yoga poses.

Explore multiple dimensions of movement in a joyful & integrated manner.

Improve your flexibility without sacrificing stability.

Awaken new kinetic chains and master an internal portrait of your body.
