The primary method of learning about the body in many Western health professions from medical schools to yoga teacher training programs is to almost exclusively divide things up and reduce what is being observed into parts. These anatomical models split the body up into parts, which creates a view of fragmentation. Our yoga practice is designed to maintain a whole view of our body. In order to take advantage of the healing potential of yoga we must find our way towards an integrated view of ourselves. In our yoga practice we aim to bring our bodies back to full potential by allowing lost or disparate parts to reconnect. This coming together physically and energetically helps integrate the various aspects of ourselves, helping our component parts to work together more effectively as one.
