Master the 88 base poses of yoga. Each base pose in yoga has 10-20 variations. We systematically find the best variation for you during the alignment yoga class. Each class features 15 unique poses that teach and modify for you. Once you know your variation of each pose, we flow the poses together into an individual crafted yoga vinyasa. Alignment 88 is uniquely designed to be challenging even for certified yoga teachers, while still being approachable to the absolute beginner.

Alignment 88 Yoga Class

Yoga Classes Alexandria VA.  Alignment Class.  Master the 88 Most Essential Yoga Poses in our class Alexandria VA.   If you want to get strong at yoga, these are poses to practice first. We start each class covering both the scaled and standard variation of each base pose. Then we scale the difficulty up or down so that you have an appropriately challenging pose to your unique body.

Yoga Alignment Classes – Alexandria VA Studio

There are many, many poses in yoga.  I personally use about 400 poses in our Vinyasa Flow Classes in our Yoga Studio in Alexandria VA.  Before you can flow (transition) well, you need to master the base poses.  The following poses — the base poses — are foundation poses.  These hardworking, fundamental poses are the poses you need to know.  Poses you need to master. I focus heavily on teaching these fundamental 88 poses in the flows I create for clients.  There is no reason to do fancier poses until you have mastered these poses.

Take it from a professional coach with over 25 personal certifications, master your fundamentals first, because it’s really the sexy, made-for-Instagram poses that will get you injured.

Alignment Yoga Classes Alexandria VA is about learning to do poses correctly.  I care more about what I look like on the beach and how I feel, than what I look like at home when I train. Don’t you? So keep it safe, and build some total-body strength with some real functional yoga poses.

In fact, some of these poses might too advanced for you at this time. All of these poses have value, but be sure to have a certified yoga instructor watch you perform these poses before you try them out at home.

1 review for Yoga Alexandria Alignment 88 Class

  1. 5 out of 5


    For those that think they know yoga, and many absolutely do, this is a really good challenge for all. This goes back to basics, expands on it then takes you down a wild rabbit hole of stretching you didn’t think you were able to do. You start simple with the basics, as described, and then improve with different challenging variations as you progress the more you attend this class. For any members that have been here for a while to new members who know a basic idea of how to do yoga, this is a great challenge for all ages. I’m already scheduling my next few classes.

  • Disinfect all equipment after use.

3) SSF Sick Policy

You may not train with any cold symptoms whatsoever, including but not limited to:

If you have had potential exposure to Covid-19 in the last 14 days;
Have a fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or a sense of having a fever;
Have a new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition;
Have new shortness of breath that cannot be attributed to another health condition;

Policies When You Are Sick: To protect all clients and trainers, we won’t train you if you have visible symptoms of being sick. It doesn’t matter whether you are contagious or not. Exception: you have symptoms and a Dr.’s note that says you are not contagious. It’s impossible to sterilize every surface you might touch. Because we have a responsibility to our other clients, we will turn you away if you come to the gym sick or display any symptoms of being sick. You might say, “I’m not sick… it’s just allergies.” If it’s just allergies, take some Claritin and you won’t have any symptoms. Symptoms = no workout.

4) Checking In

Checking in: you are required to check in with your personal trainer, through the app, or online at our member connect portal. While coaches may remind you, it is ultimately your responsibility to check in. If you do not check in, the session will be counted as a no-show, even if you were in fact present.  It doesn’t matter if you sign the COVID-19 log either.  If you do not check-in, you will be assigned a no-show fee.

For the sake of any ambiguity, you should only check in to a session that you actually attend.  From time to time we encounter a member that tries to bypass our check in policy by checking into a session that they do not actually attend.  The first time this happens you’ll be issued a warning.  The second time, you’ll be charged a $50 false check-in fee.  Do not attempt to frustrate our check-in policy by checking into sessions that you did not attend.
