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
Morning
Introduction to Breath-Centered Yoga
Yoga practice in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar exhibits many distinctive principles and practices not found in other Hatha Yoga lineages. Details of breath sequencing, coordination with movement and spinal action are just some of the subjects we will explore in this highly interactive, experiential and informative session.

Afternoon
Exploring The Breathing Body In Yoga
Based on his deceptively simple yet powerful definition – shape change in the cavities – Leslie will lead participants into a progressively deeper understanding of the vital forces at work in the human breathing mechanism during yoga practice. Along the way, many myths and misconceptions about yogic breathing and the diaphragm will be addressed and clarified.

SUNDAY
Morning
Re-imagining Alignment, Part 1
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
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.

*There is a break each day, Saturday 2:30-4pm; Sunday 12:30-2pm
**Priority given to students registering for the full weekend. Single Day purchase will be available 6-8 weeks prior.

Leslie's approach to teaching combines intellectual rigor, spontaneity and humor, and is always evolving. In addition to teaching, he is the founder of The Breathing Project, a New York City based educational non-profit dedicated to advancing educational standards for yoga teachers and other movement professionals. His unique year-long course, once available only at his home studio, is now available online at yogaanatomy.net. Leslie is the co-author, with Amy Matthews, of the best-selling book “Yoga Anatomy.” You can follow him on Twitter (@lkaminoff) and on Facebook (LeslieKaminoffYogaAnatomy), on YouTube (YogaAnatomy) and learn more at YogaAnatomy.org.
