Namaha Yoga School is pleased to be offering a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Evia, Greece in the summer of 2017. This Intelligent Vinyasa training is joyful, challenging, and uses the precision of alignment, while allowing you to flow through the Vinyasa tradition. As a yoga teacher, you will leave feeling confident in creating different levels of Vinyasa classes as well as more traditional Hatha yoga classes, teaching meditation and pranayama, as well as Dharma talks.Course outline:
History and Philosophy of yoga
Yoga practice is an evolutionary experience. Whether one can chart its history clearly and how far back will it remain relevant are the very questions our studies will explore. So many traditions with so many more claims!
A daily meditation practice is deeply important and equal to all aspects of our yoga practice. During this training our meditation practices will include active, breath, silent, mantra and visual. We will explore the varieties every day. The trainee will be supported to discover the form that is most meaningful to their practice.
Daily Asana Practice
The very heart of our intelligent vinyasa training, asana, will be thoroughly practiced, examined and explored. How many poses are there? Countless! How much will be performed? All of them!
To hold the practice is to understand its language. To speak clearly from a basic knowledge will draw your voice and presence more skillfully into the room. Ground your education in the art of Sanskrit and enjoy the potency of yoga both physically as well as vibrationally.
Alignment and postural modifications
Over the course of one’s yoga life, alignment and the power to modify will make a radical difference to the depth of practice and to the subtleties of personal awareness and insight. Two questions at its root: What difference does a difference make? Now, what are you prepared to do? Be self assured in answering them.
Being in a yoga vinyasa training we will no doubt examine our anatomy from head to toe. That being said, we will also explore the anatomy of our breath as well as the anatomy of our prana. Throughout a vinyasa experience, these three anatomies triangulate naturally. To understand how to develop our awareness of them and how to co-participate in them is at the very heart of this yoga vinyasa training.
Literally means to extend the prana. To explore its intimate passage of our breath to our body, and through both, to ourselves. Prana translates as “life-force” and working skillfully with pranayama means to expand our life’s vital energy. We will hold a daily practice of varied pranayama.
Sequencing and Planning your class
The very tools to create the body of a shared yoga experience. To open the space, to understand how to open the body, to work in the postures in order to arrive at the summit of the sequence, to safely and successfully come down from said summit, to close the body and why. To offer a theme in practice. To deepen the intimacies of yoga.
Hands on assisting
A powerful tool for the teacher. To support and administer the right touch for the maximum potential shift. That of the very greatest outcome of transformation, to the basic understanding to hold space to perhaps the endless possibilities of subtle difference. How to assist without getting in the way of the student’s experience or making it about yourself.
