Rekindling the Fire with Simon Park, June 28th – July 3rd 2015

Rekindling the Fire –Evolutionary Prana Vinyasa Teacher’s Practice Immersion;
for practitioners or teachers
with Simon Park.

Transformation comes through embodiment, moving from concept to experience. In this Prana Vinyasa teacher immersion, we will experience a rekindling of our inspiration, understanding and knowledge to bring into our teaching, practice and life path. Prana Vinyasa is a full-spectrum creative vinyasa system developed from the roots by Global yoga teacher Shiva Rea and vinyasa collective. Senior teacher Simon Park, offers his embodied transmission of Prana Vinyasa and direct hands-on to take your practice to the next level.

Through the alchemy of yoga, we will cultivate a progression of five Prana Vinyasa practices from foundation to the most subtle drawing from the Foundation and Elemental sequences of Prana Vinyasa moving from the earth (hip opening-armbalances), water (wave backbending), fire (arm balances/handstand) and the breath of the heart (advance backbends) and space (meditation-lunar prana vinyasa).

The focus will be on refining our embodiment through:

*in-depth practice, discussion, and teaching of Prana Vinyasa wave sequences

*transformational hands-on-assist with physical and energetic alignment + integration of therapeutic Thai massage and partner work

*weaving in creative handstand transitions, inversion and arm-balance variations

*cultivating movement and seated meditation

*study of selected yoga passages and sutras to weave into the flow of the class

Emerge renewed from the Prana Vinyasa wave with tools for teaching but even more important – cellular activation to vibrate at the next level!

Immersion can serve as an introduction to Prana Vinyasa or as a refinement for Prana Vinyasa teachers.

40 Hours count towards electives for 200-500 hr. courses.
