Anatomy of Breath-Centered Yoga
with Leslie Kaminoff

Anatomy of Breath-Centered Yoga is made up of two one-year, three-trimester courses that provide a practical grounding in the principles of yoga viewed through the lens of anatomy. This course travels through the body from a multitude of perspectives, placing particular emphasis on adaptability in breathing, healthy spinal function, skeletal alignment and finding easeful support in relationship to gravity.

Practices in Embodied Teaching
with Amy Matthews

Two Year-long Series of 10 Weekends

Practices in Embodied Teaching is made up of two year-long series of 10 weekends. These weekends provide opportunities to take an experiential dive into anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology. Each weekend, limited to 15 students, 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.
