SATURDAY, JANUARY 11
11:00am-2:00pm and 3:00-6:00pm
An Introduction To Breath-Centered Yoga and Demystifying the Bandhas
In this highly interactive, experiential session, Leslie will introduce the distinctive breath-centered teachings of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar 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.
Far from being a mystical practice, the good news is we were immediately, implicitly learning bandhas from the moment we first learned to coordinate breath and body movement. From this perspective, depending our yoga consists of nothing more than uncovering our innate ability to find support and spaciousness through a breath-centered practice.
The Art of Asana: From Assembly to Assisting
This unique workshop was created just for BarreCoast and features Leslie’s signature approach to consciously constructing a yoga pose. A variety of anatomical and breath-centered perspectives will be explored in order to prioritize possible adaptations and adjustments for individual needs.
Leslie will include elements of his Hands-On Assisting Lab during which he shares teaching techniques developed during decades working therapeutically with groups and individuals. This workshop offers opportunities for both individual and partner explorations including:
Verbal cueing of breath-centered alignment adjustments
Administering safe and gentle hands-on assists
Advanced principles of breath release, based on the shape-change model of breath
SUNDAY, JANUARY 12

The Warrior Series – A Hands-Free Vinyasa Practice:
If you like a strong, flowing, breath-centered yoga practice, but have done more than a few too many down dogs, up dogs and chaturangas, then this is for you. This specially-designed vinyasa strongly works the legs and moves the spine in all possible directions, all without putting any body weight on your hands.
Healthy Spines: Range of Motion, Support and Breath
Are forward- and back-bending asanas about moving forward and backwards in space or are they about changing the shape of the spine? What role does the breath play in entering into and supporting us in these challenging poses? How we answer these fundamental questions will determine our goals and experiences during practice. Unfortunately, some of the most common alignment cues do not produce evenly distributed spinal movement, resulting in a perpetuation of chronic tightness in the very areas the poses seek to release.
We will practice a variety of breath-based movements and healthy alignment strategies focusing on those that can contribute to (rather than interfere with) the range of motion of the spine while sitting, standing and supine.
