OPTION 2: In honor of his teacher T.K.V. Desikachar, yoga educator Leslie Kaminoff has designed this weekend workshop to explore the practical application of Desikachar’s teaching approach, which honors above all else the relatedness between student and teacher.
Drawing from 40 years’ experience in the fields of yoga, movement, bodywork and healing, Leslie will explain and demonstrate how to cue a yoga practice that is both empowered and embodied, and that allow each individual to have a unique experience in a group of any size, from one to a hundred.
OPTION 2: INCLUDES SATURDAY- SUNDAY WORKSHOPS:
An Introduction To Breath-Centered Yoga – Sat 22 Feb 2020 9:00am – 12:00pm
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.
Non-Linear Asana Flow – Escaping the Tyranny of the Rectangle
Sat 22nd Feb 2020, 1:30pm – 4:30 pm
Learning the simple geometries of classic asana is a great starting point for the physical aspect of yoga practice, just as learning scales on a piano is a necessary foundation to playing music. This is a workshop that tunes into the music of the body, by honoring the spirals, fluids and asymmetries inherent in our organic forms. We will practice in a way that seeks more balance in our systems by honoring the complementary forces of order and chaos, inquiry and technique, form and function.
Awakening Our Inner Resources – Proprioception and Interoception in Yoga Education Sun 23 Feb 2020, 09:00am – 12:00pm
By recognizing the fundamental job of a yoga teacher is to help students re-inhabit their bodies, we can make a few key changes to transform our teaching language into a more empowering experience for our students. Specific classroom strategies that promote better body awareness will be re-imagined and demonstrated for commonly-taught practices. A discussion of long and short term skill-sequencing will also help prioritize teaching choices for students of every level of experience.
Therapeutic Vinyasa Flow – Individualizing Breath and Movement Cues in Group Practice – Sun 23 Feb 2020, 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Increasing the safety and healing potential of a flowing practice can be achieved with simple modifications to breath and alignment technique. And, by evaluating timing in relation to movement and sequencing of spinal articulation. This session will demonstrate, through practice and inquiry, how students in a class of any size can be led deeper into their own unique experience without sacrificing the energetic benefits of group practice.
