In his 36-year career as a yoga educator, Leslie Kaminoff has logged over 20,000 hours of one-on-one breath-centered client sessions. During that time, he has amassed a wealth of hands-on techniques and a unique perspective on how to un-obstruct the breathing body. For the first time Leslie’s offering this opportunity to share his practical knowledge with a small group of participants. This week-long immersion is geared towards yoga practitioners and teachers with training and experience in hands-on techniques, as well as bodyworkers with an established yoga practice.

Three trimesters: Sep 2014-Jun 2015
Thursdays, 1:00pm - 3:30pm
Register nowIn this course, we will focus on the bones, joints and ligaments that provide support, allow movement, and transmit weight and force through space. We will travel through the body addressing structure and movement from an experiential perspective, using principles from Body-Mind Centering, Laban Movement Analysis and the Bartenieff Fundamentals, PNF and various yoga practices to discuss principles of alignment and therapeutic applications.

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.
with Sarah Barnaby and Amy Matthews
Fridays, 12:15pm - 1:15pm
This class explores developmental movement in the context of adult bodies. It is meant to be paired with Babies!, and you’re encouraged to attend both classes: Babies! as an observer, and Adults as a participant. 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.
Wednesdays, 4:15pm - 6:00pm
