Breath in Relation to the Spine

Available worldwide

Leslie Kaminoff demonstrates that where we focus our attention and breath can help facilitate ease of movement, particularly within the spine where creating space supports increased flexibility.

An over-emphasis on belly breath can create resistance within the spine, which often leads to compression in the lower back. We can learn to protect the spine by learning to inter-relate the movement of the spine to our breath.

I really appreciated the instruction on the breath with different kinds of movements, especially focusing on breathing into the chest on the backbends.

He energy was a little uptight, which transferred to his student. At times, he seemed to touch his student inappropriately. Looking past all of that, I enjoyed learning his basic teaching concepts.
