Breath Centered Practice in the Tradition of Desikachar and Krishnamacharya
Yoga practice in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar exhibits many distinctive principles and practices not found in other Hatha Yoga lineages. 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.
This workshop is divided into two three-hour sessions which are evenly divided between breath-centered asana practice, lecture and discussion

Also known as "feathered peacock pose", you'll find this way of going upside down is both liberating and thrilling.
