Lila Vinyasa 300 Hr. YTT


Lila Vinyasa 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training: Module 1

We will cover the following in Module One of 300 Hour Lila Vinyasa Yoga:

Art of Sequencing- We will learn how to create holistic vinyasa classes based not only peak poses but also how to create Bhavana (mood) classes for all levels based on Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow Wave theory. Each participant will teach two classes to their peers during the program and will have the opportunity to receive feedback from their peers and Clara.

Krama by Vinyasa Krama- We will review peak poses from the most fundamental variation to the most advanced. We will cover inversions, backbends, binds and arm balances along with any poses requested by participants.

Adjustments and Enhancements- We will share how to help students understand proper alignment for their bodies in the asanas. We will go over the standing series, backbends, inversions and forward folds. You will have the opportunity to apply those adjustments on your peers during class during the training.

Teaching to the Pregnant Goddess- You will learn modifications and alternatives for pregnant women for all three trimesters.

Anatomy of the Injured Yogi with guest teacher, Erin Moon ERYT500
Erin will review typical injuries we encounter in the yoga class including rotator cuff, lower back and knees. We will cover how these injuries can happen, how to modify while they’re healing and how they can strengthen the muscles around these key places to avoid re-injury.

Standing in One’s Own
- We will discuss how to create a safe environment for not only your students but also yourself. We will talk about establishing clear boundaries, dealing with “problem” students and holding our own among the politics of yoga communities.

The ‘Open Level’ Class- We will examine the format from Art of Sequencing and Krama by Vinyasa Krama, and review facilitation of an open level class from start to finish including theme, language and closing.

Feeding Ourselves on and off the Mat- We will share ideas for staying inspired, and examine different ways to stay creative, engaged and fulfilled - as teachers and practitioners.

Movement has always been sacred to me. I have danced my whole life, whether it’s been grooving to a good song, taking dance classes or flowing through a vinyasa, my body can’t get enough. Through movement, I feel as though I’m communing with the Divine. I took my first vinyasa class in 2000 at Jivamukti Yoga Center. I had a feeling of arriving home. We moved through postures seamlessly with an emphasis of breath-body connection. The class gave me what the dance world didn’t, an emphasis on the internal journey. I received my 200 hour Vinyasa Certification with Lauren Hanna at Sonic Yoga NYC in 2003. I met Shiva Rea shortly thereafter and again, felt as though I had come home. Shiva had created a language for the kind of movement I’ve been doing my whole life. She, too, understood the idea of fluidity. Our bodies yearn to move like water and when we do, our bodies hum with excitement. I’ve completed my 300 hour Prana Flow Certification with Shiva. I have been leading retreats for over 8 years both in the BC region and internationally. I was part of Sonic Yoga’s NYC 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2005-2006. I have been part of Semperviva’s 300 Hour Teacher Training faculty in BC since 2007. I started my own school of yoga, Lila School of Vinyasa Yoga, in 2013. I teach workshops on the subtle body, chakras, mantra, meditation and asana worldwide. I thank all my teachers for sharing their passion of this practice with me: David Life for opening my heart, Stacey Brass for her minute cues that have changed me life, Uma for opening my voice, Dana Flynn for throwing out all the rules and inspiring me to do the same, Constantine Darling for showing me another way, and Paul Ortega for reminding me we are ALL the cosmic dancer. I invite you to be playful in your practice, remembering that lightness is found in spirit!
