“Learn to create beautiful sequences that work gracefully towards peak poses, opening the body organically along the pathways of least resistance”
Embody and teach sequences based on the Vinyasa Krama system as taught by Sri Krishnamacharya, the father of modern Vinyasa Yoga. Learn more about the principles of Vinyasa yoga that are at the roots of this wonderful system. Observe the key actions of asanas in their different kramas (stages) and learn to cue them, so you will be able to assist and encourage your students in a safe and effective way.
Understanding Vinyasa Krama
Safe and intelligent sequencing within different groups of asanas is based on the system of Vinyasa Krama. Daphne has developed an innovative way to generate a better understanding of this system so you will be able to work with it in a creative and intelligent way. You will analyse the energetic lines and key actions of the yoga poses. This will give you a solid base for creating your own sequences.
Based on the intenton of your class and the key action of your chosen asana(s) you will be offered tools for creative sequencing as well as the options and modifications for students of different levels or abilities. Learn the applied techniques for offering effective hands on adjustments to help your students deepen their practice and embodiment of the fullest expression of their yoga poses.
Daphne will offer these teachings through interactive lectures as well as “lab” sessions where you will be able to create your own classes. She will also offer daily masterclasses for you to experience the effectiveness of these teachings in your own body. There will be time for feedback and problem solving in order to remove any obstacles and be sure that you are secure in the foundation of these teachings.
