Leslie Kaminoff is a yoga educator inspired by the tradition of T.K.V. Desikachar. He is recognized internationally as a specialist in the fields of yoga, breath anatomy and bodywork. For four decades he has led workshops and developed specialized education for many leading yoga associations, schools and training programs in America and throughout the world.

SATURDAY
Reimagining Alignment, Part 1 (Morning)
This highly interactive workshop will promote an experimental, experiential atmosphere of inquiry regarding the teaching of alignment, safety and effective cueing of asana. Starting with an historical and anatomical perspective on the subject and a functional definition of alignment, we will explore how human uniqueness requires us to understand that “asanas don’t have alignment – people have alignment.”

Afternoon
Re-imagining Alignment, Part 2 (Afternoon)
Building on clear, simple principles that govern healthy musculoskeletal function, Leslie will explain why many common alignment cues like “tuck your tail,” “lengthen your spine,” “square your hips” may be doing more harm than good. Working closely with class participants, he will suggest what kind of language and concepts may be used instead.


SUNDAY
Healthy Spines: Range of Motion, Support and Breath (Morning)
If spinal alignment cues do not produce evenly distributed movement, repeated practice may result in a perpetuation of chronic tightness in the very areas we seek to release. This workshop will provide a solid grounding in the details of spinal range of motion from both an anatomical and a yogic perspective, and suggest practical, breath-based movements for healthy alignment strategies.

Forward-Bending: Stretching the West (Afternoon)
In Sanskrit, the back of the body is referred to as “Paschima,” meaning “West” – therefore Paschima Uttanasana, or Paschimottanasana, is the practice of elongating the posterior line of the body. This workshop will delve into the myofascial and functional anatomy of the “superficial back line,” and review strategies for more effective and pain-free practice of deep forward folds.


*There is a lunch break each day, 12:30-2pm
**Priority given to students registering for the full weekend. Single Day purchase will be available 6-8 weeks prior.
