Chakra Vinyasa – Liberating the Body Mandala

Experience an immersion to tend the inner fire through the transformative full-spectrum practice of Chakra Vinyasa integrated with sublime teachings and meditations of the earliest Tantras.

Our journey will move through the Chakra Prana Vinyasa sequences refined over the last decade and integrated with the teachings and meditations from the earliest Tantra. Each day we will explore chakra prana vinyasa sequences to balance and liberate your system integrating chakra mandala namaskar, circular sequencing, chakra-based meditation, mantra, mudra, and yoga nidra (deep relaxation). We will also integrate movement meditations from prana vinyasa for exploration and embodiment.

Through this practical and inspirational exploration of the chakra system and yogic body, we will develop a transformative approach to the body mandala and learn to assess our imbalances and translate this into practical vinyasa yoga sequences for our self, private students, group classes and living the flow of yoga.

In a world where we can see the disconnecting effects of a “dim fire” or the burn out of the “excessive fire”, inner firekeeping is an all-encompassing metaphor for the yoga of householder life. The chakra system brings together the alchemy for tending the fire of the many dimensions of ourselves – root to heart to crown, inner and outer. Our mission is to emerge nourished and inspired with tools to deepen your practice, teaching living yoga.

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.
