All Namaskars within the Prana Vinyasa methodology follow an elemental template of five namaskars for each element, and each namaskar has a corresponding solar-lunar sequence.

The foundational theory of Namaskar offers an intelligent introduction to every solar-lunar sequence to prime the body for the elemental sequences in the following modules of the Foundation series. The state of namaskar is “to bow, to realize the essence,” and in this module we explore Foundational namaskars as the consummate vinyasa to enter the flow.

This is a unique opportunity for trainees and teachers new to Vinyasa to connect with the source of Vinyasa methodology and practice, as originally taught by Shiva Rea. Alessandra has been practicing with Shiva for the last 15 years and assisting her for the last five years.

A fully comprehensive manual designed by Shiva Rea for the Samudra School, which includes all the content that is being covered this weekend and corresponding sequences, will be available to purchase for £15. These manuals are not available for purchase anywhere else and are exclusive for this training. Please bring exact change along with you on the first morning if you would like to take a manual home with you.

What our students say

I was fortunate to meet Alessandra just over three years ago after completing my 200-hour teacher training. Alessandra’s devotion to the practice deeply inspired me so I decided to enrol on her 300-hour course in 2014. A few months into the programme, I started experiencing a tremendous shift in my own practice and teaching, feeling more focused and confident. The module subjects are carefully chosen in order to deepen the student’s knowledge, teaching skills and support their own development and creativity. A typical day consists of a long morning practice designed around the theme of the day, meditation, chanting, discussion on the class sequence and teacher’s labs. The group discussions at the end of the day gave us all an opportunity to share our own experiences as teachers, our joys and challenges. This was all done in a truly supportive, honest and nurturing environment. Alessandra is an incredibly gifted teacher with an amazing wealth of knowledge acquired over three decades of dedication to the practice. Her teaching is beautiful, spiritual and powerful, bringing out the best in each of her students. Alessandra is a caring, compassionate and supportive; she encourages her students to be creative with their own practice and teaching. A highly recommended teacher, a highly recommended programme.
