ABOUT THE CREATOR Leslie Kaminoff is the author of the highly successful book Yoga Anatomy. With more than 20 years of experience, he is internationally recognized as a specialist in the fields of yoga and breath anatomy. He is cofounder and co-head instructor, with Yoga Anatomy co-author Amy Matthews, of the Breathing Project, a New York City-based yoga studio dedicated to the teaching of individualized breath-centered yoga practice and therapy. He currently practices as a yoga educator and teaches anatomy in New York City and advises various yoga schools on the anatomy content of their national certification program. He has led workshops for many of the leading yoga associations, schools, and training programs in the United States, and he has helped organize international yoga conferences and symposia. Kaminoff is the founder of the highly respected international yoga blog e-Sutra, and he has been a featured yoga expert in Yoga Journal and the New York Times as well as online at WebMD, FoxNews Online, and Health.com. Kaminoff resides in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, with his wife, Uma, and his three sons. ABOUT THE COMPOSER Robert Spalding Newcomb is an artist whom people consistently find difficult to categorize, especially in a music scene as diverse as the one in his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. He is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, computer programmer, theorist, writer, and poet who combines elements of numerous musical disciplines and cultural domains into a performance style that is truly a unique matrix of energies. Creative explorations focus on the study of musical and linguistic structure, complex systems, cognition, transcendent states, and improvisational performance. In the 1980s, while living in New York City, Robert Newcomb studied hatha yoga extensively with the centenarian Sri Swami Buaji Maharaj (Swami Bua), and he is still an avid practitioner of yoga and other body-mind disciplines. During that period, Leslie and Robert collaborated on the creation of a yoga instructional audiotape titled Vinyasa Yoga Movement with Breath and Music, which featured the composition "Measured Breath" as a backdrop for a floor sequence very similar to the one appearing on this DVD. The design of that piece was an intricate mapping of breath and movement to rhythmic and timbral musical elements. Its inclusion more than 20 years later as part of this volume brings the collaboration full circle.
