An Introduction To Breath-Centered Yoga
September 1, Saturday, 9:30AM-12:30PM
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.
Healthy Spines: Range of Motion, Support and Breath
September 1, Saturday, 2:00PM-5:00PM
Are forward- and back-bending asanas about moving forward and backwards in space or are they about changing the shape of the spine? What role does the breath play in entering into and supporting us these challenging poses? How we answer these fundamental questions will determine our goals and experiences when we practice. Unfortunately, some of the most common alignment cues do not produce evenly distributed spinal movement, resulting in a perpetuation of chronic tightness in the very areas the poses seek to release.
This workshop will provide a solid grounding in details of the anterior and posterior lines of the body from both an anatomical and a yogic perspective. We will practice a variety of breath-based movements and healthy alignment strategies.
The Warrior Series – A Hands-Free Vinyasa Practice:
September 2, Sunday, 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
If you like a strong, flowing, breath-centered yoga practice, but have done more than a few too many down dogs, up dogs and chaturangas, then this is the class for you. This practice-heavy workshop will lead you through a specially-designed vinyasa that strongly works the legs and moves the spine in all possible directions, all without putting any body weight on your hands.
Headstands and Arm Supports – A Model of Vinyasa Krama
September 2, Sunday, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Headstand is often referred to as “the king of the asanas” but the combination of skills required to safely enter into, remain in, and exit headstand make it an ideal study in the science of step-by-step sequencing known as vinyasa krama.
This workshop will incorporate the practice of and theory behind specially designed breath-centered sequences that will transform your relationship to all arm supports. It will also illuminate the key principles involved in building a progressive practice for any challenging asana.
