Breath-Centered Yoga Practice: Maintaining Balance in Changing Times

Dates: Friday, October 22, 2021 - Sunday, October 24, 2021
Location: Arlington
Online  In-Person

The timeless teachings of classical yoga remind us that balanced practice can yield “alertness without tension” and “relaxation without dullness” (quoting T.K.V. Desikachar). The essential, vital element in this formula is the breath, and that has been a continual focus for Leslie Kaminoff during 40+ years as a yoga educator. Join us for a weekend series to explore the anatomy, physiology and philosophy of individualized, breath-centered practice in the tradition of his teacher, T.K.V. Desikachar.
