Module Three: Embodying Fluidity

Immerse in learning the Foundation Water prana vinyasa sequence, which awakens the fluid spine, front body, side-waist, shoulder and heart opening.

Through the opening movement meditation, classical and dancing warrior namaskars, core cultivation, Prana Vinyasa wave sequence, peak asana, and lunar mudrasanas of the eka pada rajakapotasana sequence, we will slowly and effectively embody the flow of prana connected to backbending, our relationship to water and our instinctual body.

• Learn the solar and lunar Water foundation sequences for the Eka Pada Rajakapotasana family of asanas and work with the Prana Flow Three-Part Vinyasa Method and Vinyasa Krama to teach to all levels

• Learn how hip opening and heart opening backbends support and complement each other, focus on basic standing asanas

• Wave sequencing for the Eka Pada Rajakapotasana sequence and how it is a progression from the foundation earth sequence

• Reinforce namaskars from Module One and practice teaching corresponding namaskars to the Water Sequences: Dancing Warrior Side-Opening Variation

• Develop an understanding of the fluid nature in your body and the flow of the water-element practices

• Teach and assist five primary alignment actions of the core “blueprint” asanas of the mandalas and sequence combinations with skill, effectiveness, fluency, and creativity

• Hands-on assists and alignments for the new asanas introduced by the Water Sequence beyond Namaskar

• Reinforce the Three-Part Vinyasa and wave sequencing teaching methodology within the earth and water sequences

• Experience Prana Flow method of hands-on assists as both adjustments and “enhancements” to the core movement of the asanas beyond namaskar of the water sequence

• Review application of basic anatomy to understand the way prana flows in the muscles, bones and fascia for balancing and lengthening qualities of structural embodiment within the asanas

• Enjoy a special Mandala of Asanas Method – self and partner massage for regeneration and learning muscles, joints and boney landmarks of the body relevant to practice

• Teaching movement patterns across a family of Asanas rather than individual asanas (Mandala of 108 Asanas™)

• Emphasizing + learning creative multidimensional Wave Sequencing™ across categories of asanas for sequencing a dynamic relationship between families of asanas (standing, backbends, arm balances, core cultivation, forward bends, hip openers, etc.)

• Using ‘alignment in flow’ techniques of the Three-Part Vinyasa™ as a method of dynamic alignment to keep the flow of prana alive through breath and natural movement of the body

This is a unique opportunity for vinyasa practitioners, trainees, new teachers and experienced teachers to connect with the source of vinyasa methodology and practice, as originally taught by Shiva Rea herself. Alessandra has been practicing with Shiva for the last 15 years and assisting her for the last ten years. She is also the Founder and Principal of Aditya Yoga School for Conscious Living, which is affiliated with Samudra School of Yoga, offering 200/500 hour teaching qualifications.

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.
