Tending the Fire: Living in Rhythm to explore the Art of Teaching

With Maria Garre

Embrace the Power of Yoga & Awaken your Understanding and Depth of Prana Flow as a Yoga Teacher

Enjoy this 3-day immersion with Maria Garre, one of Shiva Rea’s most respected and experienced co-teachers of Prana Flow.

This course is designed to help teachers and intermediate students of Prana Flow to help you focus on your skills and understanding around topics on the art of teaching Yoga (awaken your understanding and depth as a teacher).

You will be exploring Prana Vinyasa Roots Foundations sequences: navigating the solar and lunar currents, refining our inner and outer poetry of asana practice and teaching, and refresh or deepen your approach to sequencing and cueing.

Each day will awaken the fire of living, teaching and practicing.

Experience the integrated approach of Prana Vinyasa as a living and teaching flow to navigate the rhythms of body and mind. Through daily practices, workshop-style practicums and interactive presentations, you will learn and experience energetic, elemental sequences within Prana Vinyasa Flow as well as the Ayurvedic insight for awakened and illuminated living.

During the 3 days learn and experience:

  • Tending the fire through prana, tejas, ojas within sequencing, teaching and lifestyle practices. Understand their subtle and powerful effects.
  • Refining and fine-tuning cueing and hands-on. How to effectively use hands and/or touch to convey both physical and energetic embodiment
  • Prana Vinyasa Roots Foundations sequences through the lens of Prana, Tejas and Ojas
  • Solar and lunar rhythms and Ayurvedic Self-Care as ways to tend to our inner and outer fire
  • Self-reflection and contemplation to support and awaken your teaching path
