Location: SPY North
Date:  December 7-8th 2019

Module Description

Anatomy 101: Bones, Muscles & Movement

This module is about understanding our physical bodies on a more dynamic level, by understanding more clearly what makes up the body via bones & muscles and what their related movements are. Through hands-on learning, discussion and group work the following key elements will be covered:

  • The body's framework (the bones)
  • What moves the framework (the muscles)
  • What those movements look like (yoga, sitting all day, standing at work, etc.) 
  • Emphasis and Break down of Shoulder/Pelvis Girdle, The Spine and Feet.

Anatomy 102: Moving with Our Bodies: Connective Tissue and Facial Trains of the Body

This module is about moving our bodies and taking a look at what and how our bodies are able to do just that, MOVE. You will leave with a new way of looking at your own bodies and more importantly how to understand and regard yours as a contextual, fascinating thing. For instance instead of just saying "my foot hurts" we want to ask "How? Where? When? In what state? Moving? While in Extension? Flexion? What's going on above your foot and your toes?"

Through hands on learning, discussion and group work you will gain a clear understanding of the connective tissues and facial trains of the body.  We will do this via yoga postures, seated postures and other common postural forms the body my take, in order to explore, and understand just what the body takes to get us through each day.

9:30-12:30pm
An Introduction to Breath-Centered Yoga and Demystifying the Bandhas

In this highly interactive, experiential session, Leslie will introduce the distincitive breath-centered teachings of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar from a historical, scholarly and anatomical perspective while leading participants into progressively deeper understanding of the vital forces at work in the human breathing mechanism during yoga practice. Details of breath sequencing, coordination with movement and spinal action are some of the elements that comrpise the topic of bandha. Far from being a mystical practice, the good news is the moment we were immediately, implicityly learning banhas whe we first learned to coordinate breath and body movement. From this perspective, deepening our yoga consists of nothing more than uncovering our innate ability to find support and spaciousness through a breath-centered practice.


2:00-5:00pm
Re-imagining Alignment: Part 1

The first part of Leslie's Re-imagining Alignment begins with an historical and anatomical perspective on the subject and functional definition of alignment followed by an exploration of the uniqueness of human structure. Starting with clear, simple principles that govern musculoskeletal function, Leslie will help you put your asana on a solid foundation literally from the ground up (and from your head down).

Topics include:

  • a historical context for alignment in asana
  • Anatomical definition and principles of alignment
  • The relationship of bandha to support and movement

The Warrior Series - A Hands-Free Vinyasa Practice

If you like a strong, flowing, breath-centered yoga practice, but have done more than a few too many down dogs, updogs and chaturangas, then this is the class for you. This practice -heavy workshop will lead you through a specially designed vinyasa that strongly works legs and moves the spine in all possible directions; all without putting any body weight on your hands. the use of breath cueing to achieve alignment and afety objectives will be covered through exploring individual adaptation and modification for individual therapeutic objectives. 

2:00-5:00pm
Re-imagining Alignment: Part 2

Part 2 of Leslie's Re-imagining Alignment relies on students to bring questions about their own asana practice and teaching language. Leslie will promote an experimental, experiential atmosphere of inquiry regarding the teaching of alignment, safety and effective cueing of asana

  • Why Instructions like "tuck your tail, lengthen your spine, square your hips" maybe doing more harm than good, and what kind of language to use instead
  • Breath-centered, anatomically-based cueing
  • The use of Gazing (drishti) and imagery to foster increased neuromuscular integration
