Community Event – Breathing for stress reduction Friday, Oct. 5th, 7-8:30pm
Leslie Kaminoff, founder of non-profit “Breathing Project” and co-author of the best-selling “Yoga Anatomy” has designed this free lecture/demo as an educational offering to the general public. He will address basics of better breathing including foundational anatomical concepts and exercises aimed at making breathing more adaptable and resilient. Additionally, Leslie will debunk many of the commonly taught breathing myths, such as:
– Deep breathing is always good breathing;
– Shallow breathing is always a problem;
– Proper ‘diaphragmatic’ breathing expands your belly;
– Chest and shoulder movement indicates breath dysfunction.
This program is open to all, but especially first responders, business folks, singers, athletes, actors, or anyone with breathing challenges (such as asthma), or anyone looking for relaxation who is not inclined to attend yoga classes.
No yoga mats or bare feet needed, and chair seating will be available for all.

Ongoing Therapeutic Education for Yoga Teachers and Practitioners
Leslie Kaminoff offers health-based workshops geared specifically to aspiring and experienced practitioners, teachers and movement professionals. Leslie will lead movement explorations and discussions in which he shares techniques he’s developed over the past four decades working therapeutically with groups and individuals.
Saturday morning: Introduction to Healing Through Breath-Centered Yoga
Leslie’s therapeutic approach to yoga, inspired by his studies with T.K.V. Desikachar, puts the central focus on two crucial elements: the breath, and the specific needs of the individual. In addition, promoting healing through yoga is based on the perspective that there’s always more going right for a person than has gone wrong.
Sunday morning: Preventing and Healing Injuries through Yoga
Injuries occur when we provoke too much movement from too few places. Leslie will demonstrate teaching language that permits him to teach group classes while cultivating individual experiences, exploring practical modifications and creative use of breath, language and imagery, as well as simple hands-on assists.
Saturday and Sunday afternoons: Case Studies and Clinical Observation
Case studies and clinical observation are a perennial favorite for students around the world and provides an opportunity for Leslie to re-create the context in which he learned the one-on-one application of yoga from his teacher, T.K.V.Desikachar. While being observed by the group, guest clients will have a unique opportunity to work with Leslie on specific anatomical issues, build awareness of their particular pattern of holding tension and receive support and encouragement from a group of people interested in their wellness.
