YOUR UNIQUE PHYSIOLOGY: How that Relates to Yoga & Beyond

February 17-19, 2017

Spend a weekend exploring how your personal physiology creates the necessity for asana to be customized to best suit each individual’s needs. Each person’s skeleton, musculature, connective tissue, lifestyle and injuries cause a unique situation that once uncovered will create a wiser approach to postures offered in classes as well as how to know when a certain pose just isn’t meant for you. We will break the body down into general regions, look at the poses that impact those regions and learn a wiser and more personal way to approach asana.

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.
