Re-imagining Asana Cueing: Postures Don't Have Alignment, People Have Alignment
In this highly interactive lab environment, we will explore creative approaches to individualizing asana and vinyasa practice in group settings, and dive deeply into some of the most fundamental questions underpinning yoga practice:
  • What is alignment?
  • What is healthy movement?
  • How can standard cueing unique individuals?
  • How can a single teacher insure the safety of many students?
Starting with clear, simple principles that govern musculoskeletal function, Leslie will facilitate an inquiry that can put your yoga on a solid foundation - literally from the ground up (and from your head down). 
Hands-on Assisting Lab: Preventing and Healing Injuries Through Yoga Education
Injuries occur when we provoke too much movement from too few places. This day-long intensive is essentially a crash-course in the fundamentals of therapeutic yoga education. Leslie will lead partnered teaching and hands-on exchanges, group practice sessions and engaged discussions. Topics to be covered include:
  • Essential anatomy of the diaphragm and related core body structures
  • Integrating spinal mechanics with breath mechanics
  • Client-centered breathing exercises and use of guided imagery
  • Individual strategies for specific issues

Ample time will be devoted to working directly with the individual concerns of participants so bring your favorite (or least favorite!) asana and your questions.
