YOGA TRIBE 2019-2020 PRANA VINYASA™ YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

PRANA VINYASA is a full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga created by yoga master and global activist Shiva Rea. Students are empowered to experience Prana, the universal source of breath, life energy and conscious intelligence as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In many yoga teacher trainings, students learn about a variety of different styles of yoga, and it can both feel overwhelming and vague — like you are only skimming the surface- while at the same time only learning 1 or 2 sequences to teach once you graduate, which can feel boring and uninspired. In this teacher training, we focus specifically on the principles of Prana Vinyasa Yoga, along with the origins of this practice, that can be traced back through hundreds of years of yoga lineage from Krishnamacharya to TKV Desikachar, and even further back through the ancient teachings of Ayurveda and Bhakti yoga. You will leave this training with a specific understanding of Prana Vinyasa yoga, along with a library of 10 sequences that you will not only know HOW to teach, but WHEN to teach by applying the principles of yoga philosophy and Ayurveda, and a deep understanding of energetic embodiment that takes your practice far beyond the confines of your physical body.

Are you feeling the call to dive in deeper to your yoga practice through yoga teacher training? To be honest, most yoga teachers don't start their teaching path with an immediate call to teach, but many are called regardless of the outcome. As the proverb says, "To learn, read. To know, write. To master, teach. This passionate curiosity leads us deeper into the practice, and teaching yoga "ups the ante" in our commitment to self-care, personal practice, embodiment, and philosophical commitments. It unleashes our courage and creative potential, and provides us with clarity on our sense of purpose in the world. 

This yoga teacher training will take you into the specifics of Prana Vinyasa yoga, a style of yoga I honestly discovered "by accident" 12 years ago when searching for a yoga teacher training program. It seemed reputable. The dates worked. So I signed up. And then, the first night of the training, as I moved and breathed with a room full of radiant hearted strangers at a retreat center tucked in the Berkshire mountains I felt this deep sense of coming home as tears streamed down my face.

The reason why I love Prana Vinyasa, is that it provides a "prescription for life." The practice is rooted in ancient yoga philosophy through the lineage of Krishnamacharya, but it is also dynamic in that it addresses the challenges of modern life as parents, partners, householders, humans. My Prana Vinyasa™ training and practice has taken me closer to my self, provided the necessary tools to heal and revive myself physically, mentally, and emotionally, and it has provided me with a deep resource of wisdom, inspiration and energy to live the biggest, best life I can. It has connected me to a larger community of like minded people who want to serve this world in a big way, and make a difference. It is the means by which I access and express my innate spirituality with freedom and without fear. 

My teacher Shiva Rea is a true teacher on the path. She is authentic, embodied, and amazingly generous with her resources, time and energy. Her offering of Prana Vinyasa™ Yoga is academic and scientific, while also being energetically intuitive and deeply spiritual. The practices that you will learn are the culmination of Shiva's lifetime commitment to not only the living study of yoga, but the art of activism, as well as her expertise in somatics, dance anthropology, and the Bhakti and Tantric paths of yoga. Prana Vinyasa is a living practice, not a set regimen. It was created to respond to the times, and continues to evolve as times change. It is literally a means by which to navigate an ever-changing world. 

If this language calls to your heart, if you're feeling tingly, heartbroken, or terrified, there's a good chance that you're reading this for a reason. The truth is, the world NEEDS YOU to be the BEST version of YOU you can be RIGHT NOW. This training may very well be the means to that end.
