Vikasa Yoga is a school founded by Konstantin Miachin that focuses on the study of an integral system of yoga, as philosophy and inclusive lifestyle. Our philosophy is based on traditional concepts of hatha yoga, and classic science of yoga adapted for the modern life in western society. Regardless of your level of asana practice, this system provides all the necessary techniques for the attainment of high spiritual aspirations and excellent overall physical health. This course is considered the second part of the full 700-hour RYS Vikasa Yoga Teacher Training Program. This teacher training program will focus on advanced sequencing in hatha yoga, using rules and principles of Himalayan Vinyasa and Mandala sequencing. Different sub-styles of yoga will also be introduced with practices that challenge experienced students and are accessible to all levels of practitioners. There will be morning and evening intensives practices, where different sequence will be taught to support your capacity towards development. Precise explanations of the methodology will be given including unique tools for creation of beautiful sequences. In theory sessions we will examine the effect of such sequences on physical, energetic and informational aspects of our bodies. Some attention will be given to references from yogic texts, such as Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Swami Swatmarama and Gheranda Samhita. The lectures will include theory, history, teaching methodology and discussions. Also, more emphasis will be placed on physical adjustments. Another major topic is giving options to students in order to be able to teach a mixed level class with beginners and advanced students in one room. Each teacher should be able to give three variations of each pose while teaching a class: a base pose, a simplification for beginners, and modification for advanced students. Lastly, creation of personal programs for your students will be explained, giving you the opportunity to go beyond teaching private lessons with very limited benefits, and allow you and your students to maximize your potentials.Through daily yoga asana practice and lectures, we will explore a variety of yogic concepts and methods to create a new approach to this ancient practice. Students will be challenged to explore and expand upon their personal yoga practice in order to develop creative, conscious and intelligent teaching techniques.
