The Art of Flow: Vinyasa Krama for Yoga Teachers (50-Hour Training)

With Fleur van Zonneveld & Moena de Jong

In this 50-hour training for yoga teachers, you will deepen your knowledge on Vinyasa and Vinyasa Krama while exploring the Art of Flow.

Rather than performing each asana as an independent pose, Vinyasa Krama mirrors the flowing energy of the universe, creating connections between the poses. Krama means the stages or steps within a Vinyasa sequence, based on the principle of progression over time. Vinyasa Krama uses variations of each asana to open the mind and body.

Mind, body, and breath are unified into a state of harmony

Vinyasa Krama practices can be structured around a certain theme: physically, mentally, or energetically. The practice builds intelligently towards a peak: this can be a pose, an idea, or an energy. On this path, every step we take creates a contribution to the process, to the whole. Each step is equally important, reminding us of the power of the present moment.

Vinyasa Krama is an intuitive way of practicing yoga because each asana is allowed to unfold into the next -- in the same way that events in the world develop and gradually unfold. When asanas, the sequence of change, are woven together with breath and conscious intention, we align ourselves with the continuous flow, the undulating rhythm, of the universe.

 

This advanced 7-day training for yoga teachers is new to Delight and given by Moena de Jong and Fleur van Zonneveld, both of whom are experienced Vinyasa teachers. You will deepen your own practice as well as your teaching skills based on the fluid method of Vinyasa Krama.

We will explore the concept of ‘Flow’

You will learn how to create and keep the flow going in your classes while holding space for your students so they can experience their own journey within the safety of a well designed class. You will learn how to enrich your Sadhana with Nada (the development of a sound body and mind through deep listening). This can be incorporated in a class using music that accompanies the sequence in an organic way, through Mantra and silence.

 

The core of this training will be the principle of Vinyasa Krama: learning how to teach a Vinyasa class for different levels and how to modify the Asanas in the sequence. You will become familiar with the art of sequencing for different levels and interweaving themes in your classes.

 

Another aspect of the training are the principles of assisting during a flow: finding the right touch at the right moment. Keeping up with the spirit of our time, we will also explore different ways of assisting. How can you assist without touching, on an individual basis or in a class setting, in a way that will not disturb the flow or (physical and emotional) safety in the room.

 

We will also integrate Mantra and study the Sanskrit meaning word by word, so you can dive deeper into discovering the role of this ancient language. Meditation will be the red thread, connecting to that eternal unchanging reality within.
