Three 100 Hour Sections of Advanced Yoga Philosophy and Technique

Section 1 Maha Prana and Prana Vayus: The 5 Vital Forces

    PranaVayuIn Tantra Yoga, all of life’s functions are governed by the force of nature, Prana. Learning to cultivate and control prana is the source of optimal well-being on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. The major emphasis of this section is on the philosophies and techniques that address the 5 Vital Vayus of Maha Prana: Pran, Apan, Udan, Saman and Vyan.

    You will learn how body, breath and energy are related to the Prana Vayus and which asana, breathing and meditation techniques to use in order to cultivate, strengthen and control them. In addition, you will learn how to observe the vayus in the body and breath as well as how to identify Pranic weakness and create practices to strengthen the vital forces that are most needed in your life and for your students.

    A) If you are a yoga practitioner not seeking Yoga Alliance 500RYT status: You must have a consistent practice for the past 3 years. It is helpful if you’ve had some exposure to the philosophies of yoga that emphasize the energetics of asana, importance of pranayama, meditation and study with a dedicated teacher of authentic yogic wisdom. If you think you may want credit hours for Yoga Alliance one day you should attend the Intelligent Sequencing Workshop. There is one scheduled for May 27-29. It’s not mandatory for practitioners however, it is required for those wishing to get Yoga Alliance credits toward 500RYT status.
    B)If you are a yoga teacher and want to strengthen your teaching as well as earn Yoga Alliance 500 RYT status: You must have a minimum 200 hour certificate or RYT 200 or higher designation and successfully complete Yoga Shala’s Intelligent Sequencing Questionnaire. If you come from an RYS that does not emphasize the importance of intelligent sequencing you must enroll in and attend the Intelligent Sequencing Workshop scheduled for May 27-29, 2016.
