The Art & Science of Yoga Anatomy

February 24-26, 2017

We often think of Anatomy as the mere Science of intellectually knowing how the
body works. The Art of understanding, observing, feeling is overlooked. As a science nerd, I admit to years of placing priority on “evidence-based research” but as I’ve intellectually matured, I’ve come to know that the real value of Yoga Anatomy is a recognition of both the Art & the Science. During this workshop, we explore
anatomy with both in mind. Our studies will be functional & experiential for our OWN BODY, our OWN YOGA (Bernie Clark). We’ll also use both classic and innovative concepts from Leslie Kaminoff, Alexandria
Crow and Tom Myers….and of course, the ancient wisdom of yoga (who used their own bodies as a laboratory for scientific exploration).

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.
