Re-Imagining Alignment with Leslie Kaminoff

Re-imagining Alignment with Leslie Kaminoff This highly interactive workshop relies on students to bring questions about their own asana practice and teaching language. Leslie will promote an experimental, experiential atmosphere of inquiry regarding the teaching of alignment, safety and effective cueing of asana. The session begins with an historical and anatomical perspective on the subject and functional definition of alignment. Then, an exploration of the uniqueness of human structure will lead to the understanding that “asanas don’t have alignment – people have alignment.” Starting with clear, simple principles that govern musculoskeletal function, Leslie will help you put your asana on a solid foundation literally from the ground up (and from your head down). Topics include: The fundamental importance of proprioception and interoception Functional principles of alignment Breath-centered, anatomically-based cueing The relationship of bandha...

Balancing Guide: Vata Season

For me autumn is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love watching the leaves change their color from luscious green to a spectrum of yellows, oranges and reds.  But as much beauty the fall brings, it can bring many disturbances in our body and mind.  The fall season is associated with vata dosha in Ayurveda.  Vata dosha consists of ether and air.  Thus vata attributes are dry, rough, light, cold, subtle, mobile and clear.  The qualities of autumn mirror those of vata therefore it is the time when vata is increased.  During this season we can experience constipation, nervousness, anxiety, dry skin, insomnia, mental instability, muscular and nerve disorders, indigestion, bloating and gas. It is important to follow a seasonal routine to help balance...

Balancing Guide: Kapha Season

As we move out of the late winter into the spring we notice a shift from drawing inward by the heaviness and darkness of the colder months into the new beginnings and rebirth aided by the increase of the sun light.  In Ayurveda, the time of late winter and spring belong to the Kapha Season.  Kapha dosha is the most stable one and provides structure to things.  Its qualities are moist, cold, heavy, static and liquid.  We can observe all of these qualities in the surrounding nature through this time of the year.  I often find myself feeling lethargic around this time.  Here are some of the ways to dispel the heaviness in your body and mind and prepare yourself for a spring awakening. wake up before...
