The Evolution of Flow Training is rooted in the Vinyasa Yoga practice. To know where we are now, and why, where we are going, we must first discover where we have been. This Training and Student Intensive will focus first on taking a look at Ashtanga Yoga, looking at the history and lineage and systematically breaking down in detail the foundations and roots of each practice. Dissecting both the primary and second series sequences so that we may understand the intentions, philosophy and sequencing. We then investigate series that evolved from these practices through 3 set sequences and a system of practice. We will learn about the teachers who modified these series, their intentions, and how they remixed the system of ashtanga vinyasa. These practices will be challenging for the student and teacher but are always shared in a way that encourages accessibility. The practices include modifications to all poses so that the beginner as well as an advanced student can be challenged safely in the same space. It’s not about nailing fancy transitions and poses, those are only tools. These tools are used to cultivate a deeper awareness and connection, to the self and the present moment to moment experience. Finally combining what we have learned about The ROOTS we REFLECT. What works for you? How can you challenge yourself intelligently. How can you deepen the sensitivity and connection to self? How do you find your FLOW STATE? This is the REVOLUTION that leads to your EVOLUTION OF FLOW.
This will be a fun and exciting 3 days led by Danielle Murray. We will cover the primary and second series of Ashtanga Yoga in depth as well as Evolved Flow 1 (Foundation Power Flow) and Evolved Flow 2 & 3 (Advanced Power Flow-2hr practices). Which are based upon set sequence system practices. We will also look at creative and new approaches to creating “themes” based in modern biomechanics within the Ashtanga and Evolved Sequences to create intelligent, balanced flow sequences. You will also receive a manual containing course material and sequences to aid you in your personal practice and teaching evolution.
