Finding the Good Axle Hole: Space and Boundaries for Emotional Health in Breath Practice

Saturday 8:00 - 10:00

The individualized, breath-centered yoga taught by T.K.V. Desikachar was oriented towards one ultimate outcome – the reduction of dukha…suffering. 

To achieve this, Krishnamacharya’s teaching tradition employs a distinctive approach to body movement, breath flow, energetic anatomy and mental clarity.

In this highly interactive session, Leslie Kaminoff will draw on his five decades as a yoga educator, bodyworker and anatomist to shed light on the fundamental breath practices at the core of his teacher’s methodology.


Particular attention will be paid to the developmental origins of the most common psycho-emotional blockages that can obstruct the free flow of prana, and the strategies for reducing their negative effects. 


The session is aimed at students and educators of all levels.
