Workshop Schedule


  • October 1st: Desikachar’s Yoga: The Breath, the Individual, the Relationship

    In homage to the groundbreaking contributions of his teacher, Leslie will share rare video footage of Desikachar explaining the key tenets of his approach to therapeutic yoga: an utmost respect for the individual, the central role of the breath in yoga practice, and above all, the definition of yoga as relationship. Ample time will be devoted to interactive Q&A, along with simple practices illustrating Desikachar’s teaching style.

  • October 2nd: Basics of Breath-Centered Yoga

    Details of breath sequencing, coordination with movement and spinal action are just some of the subjects we will explore in this highly interactive, experiential and informative session. Leslie will introduce these breath-centered teachings from a historical, scholarly and anatomical perspective while leading participants into a progressively deeper understanding of the vital forces at work in the human breathing mechanism during yoga practice.

  • October 2nd: The Bandhas: Anatomy and Application

    The popularity of vinyasa-based yoga practice has created a wide interest in the theory and practice of Mula, Uddiyana and Jalandhara Bandha – the “yogic locks.” In this session, Leslie applies his unique, experiential approach to clarify and, above all, simplify the practical, anatomical basis of these powerful, yet widely misunderstood tools for uncovering our innate ability to find support and spaciousness through breath-centered practice.

  • October 3rd: The Warrior Series – Vinyasa Practice Reimagined

    This practice-heavy session will lead students through a specially-designed vinyasa that strongly works the legs and moves the spine in all possible directions, all without putting any body weight on the upper extremities. This sequence will be taught with a focus on the details of alignment, and their relationship to safety objectives and individual adaptation.

  • October 3rd: Defining and Refining Alignment in Asana

    In this session, Leslie will promote an experimental, experiential atmosphere of inquiry regarding the teaching of alignment, safety and effective cueing of asana. Starting with clear, simple principles and definitions of alignment and healthy movement, participants will explore some of the most commonly taught poses with the intention of encouraging better body awareness and safer, more creative practice strategies. Common cueing language will be critiqued and re-imagined for long and short term skill-sequencing.
