Whereas also important are the *LATER* dynamics, particularly for older athletes with too much chronic pain, who continue to reinjure themselves, increasingly as they age, as they still try to get that adrenaline running well or often enough to cover the pain...

Core Principles of Yoga & the Body-Mind Interface
A Class Outline
Questions to begin with:
«» What is currently taught - relative to traditional yoga instruction - in the average yoga courses in the US?
«» Who is teaching classes that cover the following elements AND principles ?
EG: Referring to those, most of which have little to do with asanas or physical positioning of body parts,
those more in depth as correlated below in columns 1-3, put in context in column 4.
As for who, I know there are at least a few such teachers in the US, besides myself, that is, and besides just on line.
Below are listed Considerations in Approach, arranged in an allegory, relative to a an automobile (Column 4 assists context):
Relative to a Car or Vehicle:
«» Vehicle Core: (Driver of the car)
«» Vehicle Frame: (car frame)
«» Vehicle Direction (path/route & destination)
NOT related to yoga per say, but IF you like, there are some correlations drawn between various aspects of vehicle travel, particularly in the management of fuel, polution, cargo & baggage, in a comparison of the car and combustion engine to the human - as driven or fueled by various emotions (in "Emotion, Fuel, & 'the Vehicle'..." on another web page at this site.)
Relative to Physical Health:
«» V. Core: *Intrinsic muscles (Fine-motor movement, in both *core & *extremities)
«» V. Frame: *Extrinsic muscles (Large movement, in both *core & *extremities)
«» V. Direction: Physical health, short & long-term plan
* Intrinsic Muscles: facilitate fine-motor movements
* Extrinsic Muscles: facilitate coarse, larger movements
* Core Muscles: those of Torso, Inner & Outer
* Extremities Muscles: those of Legs-feet, Arms-hand, Neck-head
* Asanas do direct or focus the attention on specific body parts, for specific and general enhancements, but with varying degrees of benefit, especially long term, depending on aspects as covered in column 4, as well as those covered in "Notes on Basic Focus" [a section further below], which are still quite rudimentary relative to traditional yoga instruction.
Relative to Body-Mind Health:
«» V. Core: Wholistic understanding of yoga relative to body-mind health
«» V. Frame: Internal organs, psycho-neuro-endocrine & subtle energy systems
«» V. Direction: In/for Life, short & long-term goals, purpose, how to individualize that relative to one's body-mind health, considering current age, chronic conditions, prognosis, beliefs about health & aging, etc.
IE: As regards the muscles: awareness building for a kinesthetic-to-cognitive understanding of *Tension Range,* *Work/Rest Ratio,* releasing of muscle-holding & movement patterns (ie: neuro-muscular re-setting proprioceptors, or instruction for achieving the equivalent), Etc (Elaboration). Instructors who can tell by muscle texture if this is occuring.
How & why yoga works wholistically, the implications of that; equivalent mind- body understanding of (or at least about) nutritional health, emotional health, etc.
Elements Relative to Principles, Body-Mind & Health
«» CORE ELEMENTS: Those Noted in Columns 1-3
«» CORE PRINCIPLES: Those relative to both essential physiology & the "Body-Mind" (mental, emotional, physical, subtle bodies, including the spiritual if/as one may), that is, the "infrastructure" underlying the regard for and maintenance of the *Elements, being relative to the core aspects of yoga - *multi-level* as noted and holistically considered. Many of these principles may be introduced via the "V. Core" of column 3.
The point being, most current yoga classes in the US (in "the West") may be great for starters, for learning to steer and manage the acceleration and braking, signs on the road, etc, good for practice in a parking lot - if there are not too many other cars in the lot. But for many individuals (ostensibly beyond the allegorical 'Driver's Education course'), such yoga classes may lead [the average individual, ignorant of these principles and/or unwilling to exercise the necessary study or discipline, yet kept in class] to exacerbate & quicken problems in the extremities as well as in the core - in the physical core, that is, and possibly in the energetic core.
Which troubles could be prevented with an increased, even if not thorough, understanding of the CORE ELEMENTS as a whole, and even better when the CORE PRINCIPLES (as the infrastructure of the Elements) are also understood, putting all the above in the most practical context.
