Asana – The Tip of the Iceberg

March 10-12, 2017

Most of us know that asana is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to yoga. But for many students it’s their first, and possibly only, exposure. For this reason it’s vital that yoga instructors teach asana carefully – with consideration of right attitude (yamas & niyamas), right action (biomechanically sound alignment), right intent (knowledge of each asana’s function), & mindfulness. Here we learn how to go deeper – beneath the surface.

RE-IMAGINING ALIGNMENT: A Two-Day Interactive Asana Exploration

May 20-21, 2017

Starting from the premise that “asanas don’t have alignment – people have alignment,” this weekend workshop will challenge many widely held beliefs about how to make yoga practice safe and effective. By combining equal parts theory and practice in a highly interactive, experiential environment, Leslie will cover: • Anatomical definitions of alignment and healthy movement • Breath-centered cueing and bandha in support of asana • Why instructions like “tuck your tail,” “lengthen your spine,” “square your hips” may be doing more harm than good • The use of gazing (drishti) and imagery to foster increased neuromuscular integration.
