"We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light!" Hafiz Join Roberto Lim and special guest teachers including Shiva Rea for study of and practice in the Prana Vinyasa yoga system in the Vital Living Arts School of Yoga's 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. This program is designed for students who wish to live a more joyful and awakened life through a deeper personal sadhana (practice), and service by successfully guiding Prana Vinyasa yoga classes. For teachers from other yoga schools pursuing 300-hour certification in Prana Vinyasa, registration is available for the first six weekends which are equivalent to the Embodying the Flow/Mandala of Asanas, the foundational module, with Shiva Rea's Samudra Global School of Living Yoga, and can applied to the required contact hours. With Vital Living Arts' School of Yoga, you will learn and engage in the sacred study and practice of yoga over the vinyasa of the year in a monthly weekend format from January to October 2017. You will integrate yogic philosophical principles, from recognizing the self as divine to living with the cycles of life to experiencing the solar and lunar aspects of the subtle body, with embodied practices of yoga such as asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, other contemplative arts, and dinacharya (daily rituals) from ayurveda. Your study and practice will be supplemented with: experiential anatomy training through hands-on adjustments; teaching laboratories to hone the art of guiding a Prana Vinyasa class; a Life Activation healing session; and a Vedic astrology reading. With dedicated effort, you will experience greater resiliency during periods of change, attunement to your inner state; wellness inside and out; and connection to your inner truths and dharma (life path). The Prana Vinyasa yoga system is an evolutionary system which was created by Shiva Rea based on her 25 years of practice and teaching. It offers a creative, full-spectrum approach to the art of living and embodying the flow of yoga. Students learn to embody and teach yoga with connection to the roots of yoga and evolution of the Prana Vinyasa System of Practice. In this training program, you will learn: the ritual of a Prana Vinyasa class; movement meditations; classicial surya namaskar and Prana Vinyasa Dancing Warrior Namaskars;  five foundational sequences with their solar and lunar versions; and Prana Vinyasa "three-part vinyasa technique" and "multi-dimensional wave sequencing" which provide you the skills to be able to offer these sequences to yourself and students of all levels.    Prana Vinyasa is rooted in Traditions of yoga with emphasis in Krishnamacharya's yoga, Tantra, Bhakti, Ayurveda, and other movement and healing modalities. Prana Vinyasa yoga teacher training offers a dynamic, integrative approach to the art of living and embodying yoga. Prana Vinyasa yoga teacher training emphasizes practical and experiential studies which are transformative, inspiring, and in rhythm with the realities of our lives as householders and teachers. As a global community of practioners, we seek the balance of being a grounding force for teachers to develop a body of integrated knowledge while leaving freedom for each teacher to follow their own path of evolution as they continue their studies with Shiva and other teachers.
