Rekindling the Fire: Prana Vinyasa Immersion & Teacher Training

Transformation comes through embodiment, moving from concept to experience. Co-created by Shiva Rea and Simon Park, Rekindling the Fire is a full spectrum immersion for teachers and practitioners of Vinyasa Flow. We will experience a rekindling of our inspiration, understanding and knowledge to bring into our teaching, practice and life path.

This immersion can serve as an introduction to Prana Vinyasa or as a deeper immersion for Vinyasa Flow teachers. The retreat’s 40 hours count towards Shiva Rea’s or Yoga Alliance 200 or 500 hour teacher training.

A great option is also to enjoy this module as an immersion retreat. There is no need to be a teacher. Asana intensive, fully inspiring and great fun - it is never certain exactly where Simon will take you next!

Senior teacher Simon Park offers his embodied transmission of Prana Vinyasa and his direct hands-on assists to take your practice to the next level. Elisha Young is a very special guest teacher of Vinyasa Flow and Yin who passionately shares this vision. Join Simon and Elisha on an in-depth immersion toward elevating and refining your practice and teaching to another level. To be completely immersed in the breath movement meditation that is Vinyasa Flow. Experience and create intelligent sequencing toward peak poses and varied energetics. Learn to read bodies and find the right assist for different types of practitioners. The practice moves toward balancing the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects; seeing it flow into a person's being, thus becoming the process of Yoga.

The focus will be on refining our embodiment through:

  • Sequencing based on Krishamacharya's Vinyasa Krama philosophy:  Learn the key components such as creative namaskars, transitional poses, multi-dimensional vinyasa sequences, and progression toward peak poses. We will compare and juxtapose modern vinyasa with traditional styles such as Iyengar and Ashtanga. 
  • Transformational hands-on-assist with physical and energetic alignment: A very important element of teaching requires vision, precision, sensitivity, multiple points of awareness, and an eco-free approach. Become a well balanced teacher who is just as comfortable teaching and assisting beginners as well as experienced practitioners.
  • Restorative Yin practice and philosophy
  • Integration of Therapeutic Thai Massage.

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