Breath Education: Art, Science & Soul

Join us for a special weekend symposium on breath education where we’ll dive into an expansive and inclusive inquiry into working with people and their breath. Leslie Kaminoff has gathered fellow practitioners and innovators from multiple disciplines who, like himself, are deeply engaged in questions around breathing and embodiment.

Anatomy of Breath-Centered Yoga: Axial Body Focus
with Leslie Kaminoff

Three trimesters: Oct 2015-Jun 2016

Wednesdays, 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Register nowThis year, we will explore the principles and practice of yoga anatomy with a focus on breath, the spine and other axial structures. Each class is a unique, interactive, eclectic mix of lecture, audio-visual materials, demonstration and discussion. In addition, the application of the class topics will be explored experientially through asana, vinyasa and pranayama practice sequences.

Anatomy & Breath Clinic
with Leslie Kaminoff

FREE Clinic!
Wednesdays, 4:15pm - 6:00pm

The Anatomy & Breath Clinic offers a rare glimpse into a private therapeutic yoga session, with Leslie modeling the dynamics of a non-standardized, adaptable, breath-centered approach to yoga. Each week will feature different invited clients with specific anatomical concerns. The clinic is FREE for guests and observers.

Embodied Anatomy & Kinesiology: Muscles
with Amy Matthews

Three trimesters: Oct 2015-Jun 2016

Thursdays, 1:00pm - 3:30pm

Register nowThis course focuses on muscles and how they create movement in our body. We will travel through the body exploring muscles in specific relationship to each joint, and in global layers and patterns.

with Amy Matthews and Nisha Kewalramani

Fridays, 10:30am - 12:00pm

In their first years of life, babies learn to negotiate gravity and locomote by rolling over, sitting up, crawling and eventually walking. These sessions are an opportunity to explore the reflexes, movement patterns and pathways for sensory and motor development that are the building blocks for successful movement patterns to develop.

& Adults
with Amy Matthews and Sarah Barnaby

Fridays, 12:15pm - 1:15pm

This class explores developmental movement in the context of adult bodies. It is paired with the earlier Babies! class. To attend & Adults, you must attend at least half of the Babies! class as an observer. We will begin by discussing what we observed in the babies, relating it to the larger principles of developmental movement, and then we will explore the movement ourselves.

Practices in Embodied Teaching: Layers & Patterns
with Amy Matthews

2016: A Series of 10 Weekends

Register nowTake an experiential dive into anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology in this series of somatic weekends, each limited to 15 students. Each weekend focuses on a specific anatomical topic and includes lecture, discussion, movement and a short teaching exploration. In addition to learning and experiencing the material, we'll consider how deepening our own embodiment supports the practice of teaching.
