Mandala of Asanas / Essential Tools for Teaching Flow

  • Work with Prana Flow Three-Part Vinyasa Method and Vinyasa Krama to teach to all levels.
  • Learn to teach and assist five primary alignment actions of the core "blueprint" asanas of the mandalas and sequence combinations with skill, effectiveness, fluency, and creativity.
  • Develop Energetic Observation - ability to assess imbalances, blockages and leaks of energy to a person's body, mind and heartfire.
  • Review and application of basic anatomy to understand the way prana flows in the muscles, bones and fascia for balancing and lengthening qualities of structural embodiment within the asanas.
  • Special Mandala of Asanas Method - self and partner massage for regeneration and learning muscles, joints and boney landmarks of the body relevant to practice.
