About this Module:

Foundations of Prana Vinyasa is an in depth overview of the philosophy and practice of Vinyasa, a community immersion you in the art and science of energetic alignment, flow, and yoga as a means of embodiment and well-being. Explore the foundations of the biomechanical and energetic principles of the Mandala of Asanas, unlocking your body's full potential through dynamic + regenerative practices. Discover the essence of Vinyasa Krama, mastering techniques to teach students of all levels and backgrounds with grace and precision.

We will study the profound embodiment of flow as 'movement meditation' through the Prana Flow Three-Part Vinyasa, where alignment, breath, and movement harmonize to create a seamless practice. Explore classical Namaskar patterns and the alchemy of movement, balancing the elemental body and deepening your understanding of asanas. This training emphasizes the cultivation of the five movements of prana, and the five elements, fostering a full-spectrum embodiment of life-force through the rhythms of Prana. Integrate the wisdom of Shiva Rea's synthesis of Tantra, flow theory, somatics, and creative expression into your teaching, awakening the art of Namaskar and the roots of vinyasa as a transformative movement practice.
