An advanced training that explores how to teach dynamic and inspired Vinyasa flow!

With Simon’s world-renowned approach, you will learn how to understand the inner, skillful ways to make each pose and the entire practice come to life.

Through embodiment, visual assessment and precise hands-on assists, this course will explore the fundamental principles that build the bridge from foundational to advanced asanas.

We’ll move together each day with a playful, in-depth Vinyasa practice infused with detailed physical and energetic alignment.

Following these sessions, Simon will break down the key asanas in workshops that will help you understand each component of progression and cover topics such as Vinyasa Krama sequencing and therapeutics.

You’ll then have the opportunity to teach, observe and assist your own students through the process, and learn how to develop yoga classes and privates for a mix of demographics, abilities and needs to help them grow.

Through the training, you’ll gain an understanding of the universal physical/energetic principles and movement patterns from the Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Vinyasa systems, and examine how the unique wisdom of different styles can enhance our knowledge of the physical and energetic body – for the parts to become exquisitely whole.

With this understanding, we can then read the body in a holistic way and create effective + transformational assists, to help each student find their place of joy and contentment.  

This immersion is designed for teachers from all traditions of yoga and experienced practitioners.  

Simon has over 20 years of study and practice with some of the great teachers of the modern era and draws inspiration from their wisdom – Shiva Rea, Maty Ezraty, Richard Freeman, and Dharma Mittra.

Topics to be explored:

  • Dynamic, fluid and precise Vinyasa flow practice: detailed physical and energetic alignment, creative transitions, progressive vinyasa krama sequencing building towards intermediate and advanced asanas.  
  • Energetic Alignment: finding the skillful inner actions that help the body / mind focus, evolve and change. Artful Integration of Breath, Bandha, and Drishti into practice and teaching.
  • Precise and therapeutic assists for students of all levels: guided by principles of visual assessment, understanding healthy patterns of movement and finding balancing actions.
  • Practice and teach Pranayama and Meditation
  • Therapeutic Thai Yoga Massage-based assists

How to work therapeutically with common injuries and limitations by adapting postures with better alignment, use of props and hands-on assists.
