Journey to the Center of the Breath Coaching Better Breathing


Now, more than ever, healthy breathing has been front and center for all of us. Join Leslie Kaminoff for a program designed to provide participants with lifelong skills and understanding that can make a decisive difference in preventing and relieving breathing challenges, and enlivening any mind-body practice.  

In a highly interactive format, Leslie Kaminoff will share some of the most effective and applicable techniques he’s employed over 40 years of practice as a yoga educator. You will learn

  • Yogic concepts of breath—prana and apana 
  • Essentials of breath anatomy 
  • New approaches to coordinating spine and breath movement 
  • Exposing breathing myths, clarifying teaching language  
  • Simple, adaptive imagery 
  • Non-invasive breath techniques 
  • Dealing safely with trauma 
  • Setting up a supportive, safe environment for breath inquiry 
  • Self-care breath exercises.

Participants will have an opportunity to practice a variety of techniques themselves, and to learn the best methods for sharing them to others. 

Note This program is for anyone who has ever wanted to take their understanding of breath to the next level or felt their breathing could be fuller, more nourishing, and less inhibited. People struggling with post and long COVID recovery will benefit, as well as educators and therapists who want to enhance their breathwork skills. Although no previous experience in yoga is required, yoga teachers and therapists will find the simple, clear methodology invaluable to their practices.
