Advanced Studies: Anatomy Courses
with Leslie Kaminoff
Wednesdays 2:00 - 4:00pm
Yoga Anatomy: Principles and Practices provides a practical grounding in the essentials of the anatomy of yoga practice with a particular emphasis on the relationship between breathing and healthy spinal function.
In each of the two courses, Principles and Practices, we will use a different approach to exploring the material. The first course - Principles - will be a discussion of the principles of yoga anatomy through a combination of lecture and demonstration. The second course - Practices - will be guided group practice, followed by an analysis of the teaching methodology.
Each trimester covers the material from a different perspective: The fall session focuses on the anatomy and pressure mechanics of breathing, the three diaphragms and the thoracic and abdominal muscles. The winter session covers the evolution and anatomy of spinal mechanics, the development of postural support and articular freedom. The spring session deals with the articular anatomy of the limbs, pelvic and shoulder girdles and explores issues surrounding locomotion and arm support.
Any level of ability is welcome, and no previous yoga experience is necessary. Each trimester can be taken separately, and the course can be started at the beginning of any trimester. There are no prerequisites for this course.
Yoga Anatomy students are welcome and encouraged to also attend Leslie's free Anatomy & Breath Clinic. The clinic provides the unique opportunity of watching Leslie work one-on-one with clients, applying the principles that he teaches and demonstrating hands-on techniques developed over more than 30 years of practice. Experienced teachers and movement professionals are invited to join Leslie in his new Hands-On Yoga Lab course, where he will teach his hands-on techniques.
