Leslie Kaminoff will teach a two-day immersion based on the groundbreaking contributions of his late teacher, T.K.V. Desikachar. The key tenets of this approach to therapeutic yoga emphasize an utmost respect for the individual, the central role of the breath in yoga practice, and above all, the definition of yoga as relationship.
Through inquiry, dialogue and practice sessions that balance structured techniques with free-form inquiry, students will have an opportunity to truly connect to the “Heart of Yoga".

Introduction to Healing Through Breath-Centered Yoga
Krishnamacharya’s and Desikachar’s therapeutic approach puts the central focus on two crucial elements: the breath, and the specific needs of the individual. In addition, promoting healing through yoga is based on the perspective that there’s always more going right for a person than has gone wrong. Working from these principles, Leslie will share what he has learned during the past four decades applying his teacher’s principles to working with groups and individuals.
Demystifying The Bandhas
The popularity of vinyasa-based yoga practice has created a wide interest in the theory and practice of Mula, Uddiyana and Jalandhara Bandha – the “yogic locks.” In this workshop, Leslie applies his unique, experiential approach to clarify and, above all, simplify the practical, anatomical basis of these powerful, yet widely misunderstood tools that can help uncover our innate ability to find support and spaciousness through breath-centered practice.

Less Talking, More Doing – The Theory of Mostly Practice
This is a full-length practice session (2+ hours) with a minimum of lecture. Simple body and breath warmups will be followed by a session of seated breath/bandha practice. A standing vinyasa series will flow into floor work, modified inversions, twists, backbends and forward bends, concluding with a full savasana, followed by quiet sitting. Brief introductory and concluding remarks will frame the session.
Awakening Our Inner Resources – Proprioception and Interoception in Yoga Education
By recognizing that 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. Ample time will be devoted to addressing specific questions and concerns.
