Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, defines stress as “that which interferes with natures’ intelligence in our body”. Yoga defines that nature’s intelligence as “Prana” or life force.

According to the ancient texts, there are 72,000 thousand “nadis” or pranic pathways in which that life force flows inside the human psychic body. Along these subtle pranic channels that intelligence can become interfered by becoming obstructed, under-stimulated or over-stimulated causing disharmony and dis-ease.

The understandings and exploration of Prana give one practical tools to embody the unifying intelligence, optimize health and give one a greater connection to being alive.

In this module we will:
~ Explore the yogic concepts of universal energy/great life force often referred to as “Mahaprana” or “Pranashakti”

~Outline the human blueprint of “Mahaprana” as it is organized into the 5 (pancha) subpranas or prana vayus: udana, apana, prana, vyana, & samana.

~Learn how to participate and power the 5 prana vayus for reduction of stress and optimal living through the modalities of asana, pranayama and meditation.

~Breakdown the pranic alignment of key asanas or postures for greater access to well-being.

~ Learn key mudras to enhance pranic flow and stimulate individual vayus.

~Explore the 5 “koshas” or sheaths that “pranically” or energetically house the human spirit.

~ Uncover the science behind the 3 bandhas and the supreme seal, MahaBandha.

~ Learn the three main channels or pathways, Ida, Pingala and Sushumna nadis.

~Learn different pranayama practices to balance imbalances and to prepare for meditation.

~Learn how to sequence intelligently for students, clients or ourself.

Yoga Nidra And Sankalpa Sakti
to Apr 14

Yoga Nidra And Sankalpa Sakti

In our daily lives, we rarely experience true rest—the kind of rest that enables our bodies to restore and repair as they are meant to. Approximately 70 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of sleep disorder, which means that even as we sleep, we are not finding the balance our bodies need to achieve homeostasis. As we normalize stress, fatigue, and imbalance, we experience different levels of illness.

Yoga nidra or “yogic sleep,” a sleep-based meditation using breath, relaxation, and visualization, offers healing and true balance. Its effects address physical, mental, and spiritual dis-ease, and it has been used successfully to treat PTSD, addiction, and ADHD. As a yogic practice, it allows us to release deeply embedded and unconscious patterns and become more fully who we are.

This training is open to all students regardless of skill level or practice. You’ll experience firsthand the effect of yoga nidra and learn its foundations as well as how to conducts sessions for individuals and groups.

Sequencing is one of the most influential ways in which you will shape your students prana in class. An intelligent sequence will leave you feeling balanced, re-energized, and full, a poorly sequenced class can leave you feeling agitated, anxious, tired, exhausted, and dull. In this training we will look at various Principles of Sequencing including focal points, adjustments, energetics, long-term health, ease, stability and much more.

Some of the questions we will address in this training are:

How can we best sequence a class to who is in front of us?

Various class blueprints.

How to sequence based on theme, or bhavana.

How to create maximum stability and ease in our class.

How to work and structure a class around the 5 prana vayus.

What are ways to both open and close a practice for lasting effects.

What are the energetics of the families of asanas including backbends, forward bends, twist, laterals, inversions, and arm balances.

How we can create smooth and creative transitions that make sense and are not merely choreographic.

What ways can we start to integrate intelligent use of pranayama and meditation.

Intelligent use of props.

How to apply mantra in class for desired energetic effects and focal points.

How can the gunas be shaped through intelligent sequencing.

Basic Ayurveda application of asana.
