Detox Flow Vinyasa with Les Leventhal (Session 3)
Sequences of Hip Openers will liberate tension commonly held in this area, while twists will free your spine and promote detoxification through internal massage. This Hips and Twists workshop is great for beginners to advanced practitioners and teachers, who want to learn how to up-level in creative ways and also provide a safe foundation for their beginning students.
Opening the hips begins by cultivating awareness of the challenges we hold in our hips and pelvic region. While we work to release this tension, we can begin to relax and strengthen the quads, the inner and outer muscles of the thighs and also stretch the hamstrings. While unlocking this area of our body, we will also free the spine with twists which can infuse the body with vitality and well being, releasing enormous amounts of tension. Twists are associated with toning and rejuvenating the abdominal and pelvic regions. When these regions are engaged, blood flow naturally increases and toxins are released – a natural internal massage. Relaxing and strengthening these areas releases lower back tension and frees limitation in the neck and shoulders.

Les’ studies and ceremonies are steeped in Forrest tradition, having completed Ana Forrest’s teacher training. Les has also assisted Ana’s teacher training and studied many additional hours with her. Also, Les has completed several trainings with Tias Little and has learned much of his alignment and technique cues from Tias, as well as a firm foundation in the 8 Fold path of Buddhism which compliments the asana practice with a sense of grace and elegance that allow you to take classes whatever your yoga experience and whatever traditions you have in your own life. Les pays careful attention to weave in the 8 limbs of yoga and keep the traditional styles and intentions of yoga a part of his classes while making great strides into opening a window into our global cultural shift.
Les’ yoga will give you an opportunity to heal your heart and laugh, cry, dance and just let go. Some classes flow freely, while others will explore holding postures a bit longer. Many classes have music. Most of all, is that in Les’ classes, you have an opportunity to modify and do what you need to do in order to take care of your practice and that in learning to take better care of yourself, you can then take better care of those around you and they might then take better care of those around them.
“What I’m teaching comes from my studies and how I incorporate that into my body and my spirit. My voice should only be a guide for you to explore your body and spirit and that the voice of your spirit will speak more clearly than anything I would ever have to say” says Les.
Les has been featured twice in Yoga Journal magazine and interviewed by Darren Main, author of Yoga and The Path of The Urban Mystic and by Voice America – Your Life Without Limits, Joe Sarti.
