Yoga Anatomy Training with Leslie Kaminoff

There is still room in a week-long Yoga Anatomy training I’m teaching at Kripalu from Jan 22 – Jan 27, 2006.
I really enjoyed teaching this program at Kripalu last summer. The
intensive format allowed me to work closely with the students, and we were
able to cover almost as much core material as I teach in the year-long Yoga
Anatomy training at The Breathing Project.
I’m also leading an Equinox Yoga Weekend at Kripalu Mar 17 – Mar 19, 2006.
Here’s the description of Yoga Anatomy from the Kripalu website:

with Leslie Kaminoff
For all levels and abilities.
This program will provide a practical grounding in the essentials of the
anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology of yoga practice, with particular
emphasis on the relationship between breathing and healthy spinal function.
In an engaging and creative learning environment, we will make anatomy a
living, breathing, unforgettable part of our lives.
The first two days will focus on the anatomy and mechanics of breathing. The
third day will cover the evolution and anatomy of spinal mechanics and the
development of postural support and articular freedom. The last two days
will deal with yoga physiology, balance, and equilibrium, including hands-
on yoga therapy techniques and assisted practice relating to specific
Throughout the week, ample time will be devoted to individual
questions, concerns, and structural issues.
Yoga provides a unique opportunity to the anatomy student because it shows
us which details are important and integrates those details into a unified
vision and experience of human existence. Gone are the days of memorizing
and forgetting countless details of anatomy—this is embodied knowledge.
