Author Bios:
Alignment Yoga arises from the work of Monica Lind Hathaway over a period of 40 years of dance experience in her professional career as a ballerina and dance teacher. Monica had just completed a Broadway show for Julie Stein and Sammy Cahn and was dancing lead roles for Leonide Massine of the Ballet Russe in New York when her career was interrupted by polio. Facing that challenge, she continued her relationship with dancing by choreographing for other shows and she began to study singing. As she worked with breathing, it became part of her understanding of how to open and release accumulated tensions on the level of peak performance. Working with the elderly, she introduced some principles of Alignment such as grounding the body and using the arches of the feet while moving, as well as breathing and releasing accumulated tensions-- the foundations of Alignment Yoga. Monica was co-founder of the American Yoga Foundation.

Harmon Hathaway, co-founder of the American Yoga Foundation, is an international teacher, writer, and therapist. He is a life member of the World Yoga Counsel and is on the advisory board of The North American Yoga Council. With Monica Lind Hathaway, Harmon researched and developed the subject of Alignment.
