Yoga Anatomy & Physiology | 20 hours
Teachers in our 200-hour training learn the foundations of anatomy, including the way the axial and appendicular skeletons come together to create a container for the flow of prana. We look at the major joint systems in the body and how they relate to the asana we use to sequence vinyasa flow. We then look at the central nervous system and how the asanas impact the physical and energetic body to calm the mental body.
Sequencing Kundinyasana | 50 hours
Our training teaches you how to break poses down into groups that have similar movements that complement one another. This allows you to put poses with similar functionality together quickly and easily to ensure safety and creativity. You will learn how to appropriately combine Vinyasa and Kundalini styles together. We teach beginner sequencing, all level sequencing, and advanced sequencing. You will complete this training with the ability to teach Kundalini on its own, Vinyasa, and Kundinyasa.
Subtle Bodies | 20 hours
Our training goes over the subtle bodies extensively, beginning with the Pancha Maya Kosha system and moving into the chakra system. We look at the way the Nadi system overlays the Pranamaya Kosha and the chakras, and we look at the similarities between meridians and Nadis. We will also delve into the Kundalni yoga system of the 10 Bodies.
