Embodying the Flow

July 4 - 7, 2016

Prana Vinyasa Teacher Training with Simon Park

40 Hours Samudra and Yoga Alliance Certified

 
 

This foundation immersion weekend empowers you to embody and teach yoga as a universal connection to the flow of prana, our life-force. 
Embodying the Flow™ immersion is for aspiring and seasoned teachers as the introduction to a wholistic, energetic approach to teaching vinyasa as more than a technique or style of yoga but a way of guiding the flow of our body, practice and life. 

Based upon the teachings of Krishnamacharya's lineage, Tantra, Sacred Arts, Ayurveda, Bhakti and Somatics, Embodying the Flow models the synthesis approach to integrating the roots and evolution of living yoga that Shiva Rea has been pioneering for over 20 years of teaching. Simon has been a student of Shiva for 20 years and brings his diverse Yoga background which includes Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Thai Massage. 

We will create a Living Yoga Ashram during our training in Chamonix as a community-based, dynamic, creative, and rejuvenative approach to teacher training. You will begin teaching the first day and leave empowered to begin practice teaching or elevating your current teaching.

Our unique program also provides year-long support for living vinyasa through Samudra's Global Online program with a community of teachers. 

This is the first of Shiva's modules; which can be applied to the 200 or 300 hr Prana Flow Certification. Deepen the way you breathe, move, teach and flow in the yoga of life.
