21 day non-residential 200 hour Integral Vinyasa yoga teacher training
with Nina Vukas & Eva Priyanka Wegener
Sri Lanka - Feb 03.-24.2018.
I am very excited to open registration for this training intensive, a transformational 21 day Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour yoga teacher training in Sri Lanka. TTC will be held in inspiring, lush setting of Sri yoga shala and in collaboration with Sri yoga shala’s founder, a beautiful creative soul Eva Priyanka Wegener.
The core teachings of Spanda Vinyasa yoga school are rooted in Integral Vinyasa method which stems from Hatha yoga teachings, classical yoga philosophy, Tantric teachings, Ayurveda's understanding of nature and the five elements, as well as today’s understanding of anatomy and movement biomechanics. The method follows traditional teaching of Vinyasa Krama, a system of progressions chosen to serve the gentle unfolding and integration of our body / mind, and expands from there.
You will learn the tools like proper alignment, creative yet intelligent method of sequencing, hands on adjustments and assists, modifications and adaptations, pranayama, mantra, mudra, yoga nidra and learn how to use those tools to create safe, meaningful, mindful yoga practice. Our goal is to create safe and open environment, offer clear instruction and help you every step of the way.
To ensure quality and individual approach, this training is limited to 18 students.
This is a non-residential teacher training.
