In the upcoming 2014/15 year, which starts in September, Leslie will be teaching Practices, his companion course to Anatomy of Breath-Centered Yoga: Principles (formerly known as Yoga Anatomy), while Amy’s Embodied Anatomy & Kinesiology course will focus on Bones & Ligaments.

Two Year-long Series of 10 Weekend Workshops
Practices in Embodied Teaching is made up of two year-long series of 10 weekend workshops. These workshops provide opportunities to explore advanced concepts in anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology.
We pay particular attention to the development of embodied teaching skills and explore what it “is” to transmit information with skill. Students are challenged to use these explorations to develop principles of skillful teaching and put them into practice.
