“Learn to create beautiful sequences that allow the body to open up to the flow of Prana, life energy. Enjoy creating graceful sequences leading to inner transformation in a sustainable and inspiring way”.
Vinyasa yoga teacher Daphne Koken is offering this advanced module for yoga teachers and intermediate
Embody and teach sequences based on the vinyasa krama system as taught by Sri Krishnamacharya, the father of modern vinyasa yoga. Learn more about the principles of vinyasa that are at the roots of this wonderful system. Observe the key actions of asanas in their different kramas (stages) and learn to blend them into creative sequences that invite your students to experience a deeper practice in a safe, transformative and fun way.
Understanding the intelligence of Vinyasa Krama
Safe and intelligent sequencing within different groups of asanas is based on the logic of vinyasa krama. During this training you will generate a clear understanding of this system. This will enable you to work with it in an intelligent way. Based on the intention of your class and the key actions of your chosen asana Daphne will offer tools for creative sequencing as well as the modifications for students of different levels or abilities. You will analyse the energetic lines and key actions of the yoga poses. This will give you a solid base for creating your own sequences and for guiding students into an embodied flow.
Daphne will be offering different pathways of sequencing as well as layers you can add to create an embodied experience for your students. This will give you the tools to be creative in a smart and safe way. It will enable you to choose different pathways for different occasions and it will allow you to choose your own level of creativity in sequencing.
Daphne will offer the teachings of vinyasa krama sequencing through interactive lectures as well as “lab” sessions where you will be able to create your own classes. She will also offer daily masterclasses for you to experience the effectiveness of these teachings in your own body.
Energetic Hands-On Assists
Yoga asanas are a reflection of the different pathways of Prana in the body. Once you have a solid understanding of how these directions of Prana effect our asana practice and the way we sequence, you will be ready to learn the techniques for offering hands-on assists to help your students deepen their practice and embody the fullest expression of their yoga poses. Every day you will be practicing hands-on assists based on the energetics of different poses.
