In this yoga podcast Adam talks with Leslie Kaminoff.Leslie has described himself as a ‘yoga educator’, and by others as a ‘yoga cowboy’.
This is a very appropriate term, as he really does interest himself in every aspect of yoga. From anatomy, practice, teaching as well as philosophy, he is a courageous, honest and unconventional thinker. We need this in the yoga world now more than ever.
Firstly starting practice in the 1970s, he later spent a long period as a student of TKV Desikachar. (The son of Krishnamacharya – father of modern toga).
After his time within traditional studies, he went on to co-author ‘Yoga Anatomy’ with Amy Matthews. The book sold over a million copies worldwide and had 12 printings before the second edition was released. It’s now sold well over half a million copies and is in print and translations into 23 languages.
Leslie is the founder of The Breathing Project, a New York City based non-profit educational corporation. It ran highly respected year-long courses in yoga anatomy from 2003 to 2017. Those courses have been available online to a worldwide audience at yogaanatomy.net since 2011. There are over 5000 students from 46 countries in this online community.
