Align Your Life 1

You can take this course online anytime!

Align Your Yoga, Align Your Life is will empower you to create yoga poses that fit you rather than you having to fit the pose. It will forever change the way you feel in your body using these revolutionary Blissology Yoga Alignment Principles.

This course is available as a Self-Guided Journey, available anytime.

We have broken down the underlying patterns of alignment so yogis can understand the principles and purpose of alignment. We can then customize the poses to suit our own individual bodies to create a therapeutic, light yet stable pose.

The Blissology Alignment principles you will learn in this course extend far beyond yoga postures. They will help your body function at its optimal level on and off the mat now and for years to come. Your yoga practice will be more joyous and sustainable and you will experience tangible improvements in your mental, physical and emotional health.

The overarching goal is that you can learn how to stop doing “one-sized fits all yoga,” which is governed by what the poses look like and instead understand the principles of tension and compression so that your joints are happy, your tissues are functioning at their optimal level and your mood feels expansively joyous and calm.


This course is perfect for all levels of yogis from total beginners to those who want to become certified yoga teachers on our 200 and 500-hour Blissology Path.

If you have a desire to develop a deeper understanding of how your body could feel at its optimal level by balancing the forces of tension and compression and making your joints last as long as possible, this course is for you! There is a lot of information but it is organized into easy to digest principles for easy absorption.
