Teaching vinyasa is an art that requires teachers to develop related tools using their voice, hands-on assists, observation and energetic awareness to provide guidance that facilitates the state of flow of a class. Learn the art of teaching Prana Vinyasa® – or Prana Flow® – as originated by the iconic Shiva Rea.
This empowering and evolutionary vinyasa training, is the only one of its kind being offered at Yogacampus. Led by the UK’s first Affiliate Prana Flow Trainer®, Alessandra Pecorella, this specialist course will offer you the tools to embody the energetic flow of yoga on and off the mat, deepen your practice, and learn to share vinyasa for all levels. This self-contained 90-hour teacher training course is aimed at aspiring trainees and seasoned teachers alike. Join Alessandra on a holistic and authentic journey to teaching vinyasa yoga.
Through the full-spectrum Wave Sequencing of Prana Vinyasa, you will learn the energetic alignment for core asanas within the Mandala of Asanas™ as taught at Samudra School of Yoga, based upon an integrated understanding of the following principles:
1) Movements of Prana;
2) Practical anatomy;
3) Open and strengthen the core structures of embodiment from head to toe, skin to subtle body;
4) Teach alignment in the flow of movement with creative and effective solar/lunar sequences.
You will begin practicing the art of teaching on the very first day, developing the teaching tools of using your voice, hands on assists, observation, and energetic awareness to facilitate the state of flow within a class. In this 90-hour training, you will focus on the Prana Flow® method of teaching alignment in the flow of a practice, creating movement alchemy that balances the elemental body and a deep understanding of asanas within the Mandala of Asanas™. Energetic alignment will be emphasised to begin to cultivate the balancing of the Five Elements and full spectrum embodiment of the organising intelligence of our life-force through the movements of Prana.
You will explore the many dimensions of creating a soul-inspiring class; guiding the microcosm of your students to experience healing connection to the whole. This approach to teaching encourages an evolutionary journey into living yoga as we begin to heal the body of our life through the empowerment of a full spectrum practice. We will emphasise teaching from a flow-state to translate this integrative practice to our students. You will learn 10 Namaskars – 10 Solar and 10 Lunar Sequences as the starting point for teaching vinyasa in a full energetic spectrum.
