Session 1: 1:00pm-3:30pm
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.
Leslie will introduce these breath-centered teachings from a historical, scholarly and anatomical perspective while leading participants into a progressively deeper understanding of the vital forces at work in the human breathing mechanism during yoga practice.
Session 2: 4:00pm-6:30pm
Reimagining Breath and Alignment
This highly interactive session 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.”
