LESLIE KAMINOFF - DOWNUNDER - 2020 TOUR

PERTH : Breath-Centered, Individualized Yoga – Theory and Practice

Join Leslie Kaminoff, co-author of Yoga Anatomy (one of the most widely recommend anatomy texts for Yoga Teachers and Practitioners in the world), and founder of The Breathing Project, from 14-16 Feb in PERTH.

Leslie Kaminoff offers this two-day immersion focused on his teacher T.K.V. Desikachar’s uniquely practical teaching philosophy. Desikachar’s observation that “the form of a practice should always follow its function” emerged from his background both as an engineer and a yoga teacher.
Leslie will bring his anatomically-informed, inquiry-based perspective to his teacher’s revolutionary work discussing breath, asana and practical teachings from the yoga sutras.

PERTH 14-16 Feb 2020

SATURDAY 15 FEB

9:00am-12:00pm

Yoga Anatomy of Body, Mind and Breath

Yoga can be described as integration of body, mind and breath. Leslie’s teacher, T.K.V. Desikachar, stated that without the breath there is no yoga. Join Leslie Kaminoff, co-author of Yoga Anatomy, for a three hour introduction to the basics of the anatomy, physiology and neurology of yoga practice. Lecture, audio-visual material, led practice and interactive inquiry; All levels of experience (including beginners) are welcome.

1:30-4:30pm

The Essential Spine: Healthy Movement, Steady Support

This workshop covers the basic evolution and anatomy of spinal mechanics, as well as practical methods for developing greater postural support and articular freedom, all through the lens of Patañjali’s sthira/sukha definition of asana.
Particular attention will be given to the details of the anterior and posterior lines of the body from both an anatomical and a yogic perspective. We will practice a variety of breath-based movements and healthy alignment strategies.

SUNDAY 16 FEB

9:00am-12:00pm

Inquiry vs. Technique in The Classroom – The Sthira and Sukha of Teaching Yoga

Teaching yoga techniques without a spirit of inquiry can be overly reductionistic and didactic. But promoting a spirit of inquiry without the structure and boundaries of specific techniques can lead to students feeling lost and confused.

This workshop addresses strategies for balancing this dynamic dichotomy in the classroom, with sample sequences and interactive discussion.

1:30-4:30pm

Practical Teachings from Selected Yoga Sutra

Unlike professional pundits, Desikachar learned the yoga sutra from his father Krishnamacharya in an ongoing, practical, progressively deeper manner, contextualized by them living in the same household among their families. The lived experience of this learning was revealed through all Desikachar’s lectures and practice sessions: he lived his life through the lens of Patanjali’s teachings. In this session, Leslie will share his core understanding of a few, choice sutras that his teacher gave him to contemplate, based on Desikachar’s exquisite sensitivity to his student’s needs, interests, and nature.
