Vinyasakrama Yoga Asana Immersion
ACCURATELY CONFERRED IN UNPRECEDENTED DETAIL
WITH PAM JOHNSON
Module #2—Kramas 7-12: August 3–9, 2019 Registration Deadline 7/2/19
A RESONATING ART AND SCIENCE
THE SLOW DANCE OF BREATH AND MOVEMENT
We will meticulously comb through the art of vinyasa (yoga asana) as laid out through Krishnamacharya’s coherent narrative arc in which the geometric forms are organized around the distribution of prana into the sinuous musculature of the body and more importantly throughout the internal organs.
All 12 kramas containing varied asanas with their subsets and counter poses will be surveyed along with the method of superimposing the synchronized Ujjayi breath. We will look at the effects on the internal organs and the alignment as it is created through proper flow of the Ujjayi breath and determine how to thread the appropriate vinyasas and their applications together for personal or student needs.
With consistent curiosity and examination of the methodology and the auxiliary practices of breath-centered postures, breath retention, various seals, mudras and mantras, you will begin to penetrate the subtle layers that permeate our intellect, personality and emotions by dwelling in the space between your inhale and your exhale.
Our goal is to preserve and conserve this yoga asana tradition and to further understand the theories, evolution, and experiential concepts of pranic energy and how we can best convey this notion and its place into today’s world.
Only if we feel that something is precious will we take it seriously and do it with a positive attitude.
The breath was and is my teacher
The breath is what I am
The breath is what you are
It has infinite wisdom
And is the wisest and deepest teaching in existence.
