ELEMENTAL VINYASA ~ Embodying the Power of Nature
Live with the power of the earth, water, air, space, and inner fire through Prana Flow sequencing of “Elemental Vinyasa”. Our body is comprised of all of the elements which make up life – the food of the earth, the sacred water of our primarily fluid body, the metabolic and electrical fire of our cellular and neural network, the air which is the breath of life that nourishes every cell, and the space which primarily pervades our body.
Awakening the “elemental body” is the primary energetic map in Prana Flow that forms the foundation for our sequencing of movement alchemy, our embodiment of nature and an integrated flow between our practice and life. Experience the “roots and evolution of vinyasa” as Shiva offers the Elemental Vinyasa pathway of the Prana Flow Elemental Namaskars and Solar-Lunar Waves Sequences of the Prana Flow Mandala of Flow system. This system is a unique part of our teacher training which offers the maps of embodiment through the elements as the art of yoga and life-sequencing for realization of our full-potential and dharma in the world.
Embody and Teach Five Elemental Namaskars – Bhumi (earth) Namaskar, Jala (water) Namaskar, Agni (fire) Namaskar, Hridaya (air) Namaskar, Akash (space) Namaskar.

EMBODYING THE FLOW + MANDALA OF ASANAS TEACHING LAB
Each week of our teacher training immersion will include teaching labs for Embodying the Flow and Mandala of Asanas.
Evolutionary Vinyasa Teacher Training Program is for aspiring and seasoned teachers as the introduction to a wholistic, energetic approach to teaching vinyasa as more than a technique or style of yoga but a way of guiding the flow of our body, practice and life. Based upon the teachings of Krishnamacharya’s lineage, Tantra, Sacred Arts, Ayurveda, Bhakti and Somatics, 200-500 Evolutionary Vinyasa Teacher Training models the synthesis approach to integrating the roots and evolution of living yoga that Shiva has been pioneering for over 20 years of teaching in the fertile soil of LA’s yoga community and annual retreats to India. Teaching vinyasa is an art that requires a teacher to develop related tools using their voice, hands-on assists, observation and energetic attunement to provide guidance that facilitates the state of flow of a class.
In this week-long immersion, you will learn the energetic alignment for core asanas within the Mandala of Asanas™ based upon an integrated understanding of 1) the movements of Prana; 2) embodied practical anatomy; 3) how to open and strengthen the core structures of embodiment.
