ALIGNMENT & BIOMETRICS OF YOGA

We have aimed to create the ultimate guideline system that will assist your practice, keeping the necessary while eliminating all distractions. Presented below are all the different lines used on our mats; your mat of choice will contain a specific selection depending on model. Have a look to find out what our guidelines can do for you.

A: Dash-dot centre line

The dash-dot centre line is used to find heel-to-heel or heel-to-arch alignment. Place your hands and feet at equal distance from the line or adjust according to asymmetrical body needs.

The centre line also serves as a guide for squaring of hips to the front or finding parallel feet in standing forward folds.

B: Vertical dashed lines

The top vertical dashed lines are placed at an estimated average person´s shoulder width, 37 cm apart, guiding hand placement on the mat.

Positioned 31 cm apart, the bottom vertical dashed lines represent an average person´s hip width and do the same job but for your feet.

Since no two bodies are the same, the lines should not be used for absolute positioning, but as reliable reference points.

C: Horizontal dashed lines

You will also find the prime stance between hands and feet when the mat exhibits the double horizontal dashed lines.

Glancing down to note where in relation to the lines your body parts land makes adjustment easy. If your practice is uneven, you will also notice and be able to correct it.

D: Dotted 45-degree lines

The dotted 45-degree lines will help you find the desired feet angles in warriors, triangles and all other postures that are not perpendicular to the centre line.

Once you have landed in an asana, you can look down to correct in a split second.
