Go Further, Go Deeper…  master your asanas today!

In October we start with the EARTH series, consiting of 4 trainings. During the first 3 trainings we explore the key actions and benefits of the main intermediate poses that nurture and energize our Earth element. These exhilarating and empowering poses are taught in steps called ‘kramas’ to help you cultivate the strength, suppleness and confidence in a safe and enjoyable way.

During the last training we offer an Earth -Elemental Vinyasa Masterclass, an opportunity to experience the poses learned as part of an integrated multi-dimensional vinyasa sequence. Here we bring together the different aspects of yoga in an uninterrupted flow, so you can experience the transformative power of the intermediate poses in a full ritual master-practice.

Our Advanced Asana Trainings are not all just about hard work! Students sometimes try ‘too hard’, trying to push their bodies into a pose. Learn how to open and prepare the body in an intelligent way. While some poses require strength and stamina, others benefit from relaxation, time and breath so we also practice surrendering and letting gravity do its’ work.

During the trainings we integrate the use of props such as belts and supportive partner work to have the best experience of the pose at whatever level you are.  We explore the different relationships to the Earth element through supine floor poses, flying poses, and bound poses, it’s a lot of fun!’

Simon and Daphne work together as a team to help cultivate a safe and encouraging climate for students who want to extend their boundaries and excel. Their teachings and master-classes are based on the Prana Vinyasa™ yoga system as taught to us by their root teacher, Shiva Rea based in Los Angeles.
