Explore the roots of the Prana Vinyasa Solar Foundations sequence for each of the five elements. Enjoy learning to practice and teach the Foundations Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space Prana Vinyasa sequences.
The Prana Vinyasa® methodology of sequencing takes its inspiration from the elements. This module explores and unpacks a solar Foundations sequence for each of the five elements. We will practice and teach the Foundations Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space Prana Vinyasa sequences. Students will use these Foundations sequences to learn the multi-dimensional Wave Sequencing approach, deepen their understanding of Energetic Alignment through hands on assists and asana breakdown, as well as refining the Dancing Warriors, and Surya Namaskar that were introduced in the Art of Namaskar module.
