This French virtual yoga festival is the ideal way to spend a weekend

PAR CLÉMENCE PAYS

40 yoga studios are now teaming up to create the very first virtual yoga festival, #SaveMyYoga Festival, on December 5 and 6.

Who said a weekend totally dedicated to yoga practice was impossible during the lockdown Certainly not the 40 yoga studios that have come together in France to create the #SaveMyYoga Festival. The goal of this special yogi virtual festival is to support yoga studios that have been closed since September and affected by confinement. The festival is the very first of its kind and will include 40 hours of 100% yoga taught by all 40 studios (Le Tigre Yoga, Yoga Village,  Oly BeYazenYogaventureAshtanga Yoga Paris…) The festival will also offer courses, meetings, and meditation sessions. You can choose whatever style of Yoga you like – from yoga Nidra and kundalini yoga to mindfulness meditation. It’s an ideal opportunity to enjoy a peaceful moment with other followers and regain recharge your positive vibes.

The best part is that the funds raised will be donated to the  Indra France association, which collaborates with organizations such as the Saint-Denis Prison Monitoring Center, the Maison des Âmes, and the Maison de l’Alisier de Pierrefitte, to help people get access to wellness workshops such as art therapy, yoga, and relaxation therapy.

From 20 to 40 euros per day for unlimited access, subscriptions to the YouTube broadcasting platform on savemyyoga.

300 Hours Liquid Flow Yoga Advanced Teacher Training Simon Park – March 22nd – April 16th

300 Hour Liquid Flow Yoga Advanced Teacher Training Simon Park – March 22nd – april 16th with Mayashala Paris.

The art and practice of Yoga is the study of the body, mind and everlasting soul.. it is timeless and eternal. There are certain truths that are experienced in the fleeting, yet perfect moments of union between breath, body, heart, mind and soul. This pathway requires an unfailing dedication to Abhyasa, or conscious practice and the steady awareness of Vairagya, detachment to the shadows of existence. The concept of Abhyasa not only applies to the practice of Asana, but all aspects of life in which conscious action and positive intention will bring us and those that we touch, into the light.

At the heart of the Liquid Flow Advanced Teacher’s Training is community. A very special gathering of inspiring teachers, assistants who are also amazing teachers, master musicians, chefs, karma yogis and most importantly, the students. A transformative experience of growth, learning, connection to nature, music, nourishing food and love + support for each other’s journeys. Each teacher is deeply committed to their craft evidenced by years of in-depth study with master teachers spanning generations and styles.  Through constant practice, application and teaching we aim to present this timeless information in a way that remains relevant for our modern age. This is the power of lineage; the deep connection to the source is preserved and the universal truth of the teachings flows through us into the present moment. It is the perfect path to joyfully share this journey from teacher to student. We are dedicated to teaching in the most authentic way, by learning and teaching from our practice, passing on the brilliance of our teachers and the lessons learned from the rich fabric of life.

This Teacher Training course will cover

Advanced Asana: Modern Vinyasa, Classical Roots

Liquid Flow Yoga holds the structure and discipline of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga, infused with the immense creativity and dance-like flow of modern Vinyasa. It is a fresh and inspired blend of classical and modern styles.

Practice dynamic asana as a movement mediation in an open system that guides the student to experience the practice as an unscripted adventure. Asanas are practiced with a keen eye to detailed physical / energetic alignment and awareness of complimentary and opposing actions. There is an artful focus on creative transitions that add elegance and uniqueness to the flow of the practice. Finally, an observation upon the subtleties of the breath upon body and mind. Principles of Vinyasa Krama are utilized to create an evolutionary practice that aims to challenge, invigorate and harmonize body, mind and soul.

Learn the process of allowing the ultimate guidance to be from within… Experience the practice becoming exquisitely complete.

Vinyasa Krama Sequencing

The art of creative Vinyasa Krama sequencing. Create intelligent, safe and creative flows that will take your students to the next level

We will review, break down and discuss sequences taught by Simon, Joan and the guest teachers during the training. Included will be discussion and construction of sequences based on the principles of Vinyasa Krama (proper placement of asanas in sequential and progressive order). Also, how to theme powerfully, sequencing toward peak poses, and designing your own advanced asana flows.
Develop your ability and confidence to design and deliver creative and satisfying sequences for all levels, different types of classes and workshops.

Art of Assisting

Learn the approach towards transformational hands-on-assists with physical and energetic alignment. Assisting is a very important element of teaching; a great compliment to good verbal cues. It requires excellent vision, precision, sensitivity, multiple points of awareness and an ego-free approach.

A skillful touch has the power to transport your students to a whole new level of awareness. What could take years for a student to understand a particular action or movement, could be done with one precise, effective, supportive assist from a well-trained teacher.

Simon and Joan have trained and assisted two of the best in the business: Simon has spent years assisting for Shiva Rea, and Joan has studied and assisted extensively with Maty Ezraty – founder of YogaWorks.

Sharpen Your Teaching Skills

Practical, theoretical and philosophical aspects of becoming a better yoga teacher. Explore essential principles that will greatly inform your practice and teaching.

Practice teach with direct feedback from peers and guides (Simon and teaching staff). Understand that each teacher has their own unique voice and each student, their own individual path of practice.

ZenThai Shiatsu

Blood, Prana and nerves form the foundation of our body’s internal pathways, referred in eastern healing traditions as ‘the river of life that ensures good health and vitality’. When this is obstructed through emotional and physical trauma, postural imbalances or external invasion of pathogens, the natural healing mechanisms of our body is challenged and the ‘free flowing river’ stagnates. The result is pain, low energy and a general loss of well being.

Zenthai shiatsu addresses the needs by drawing on the Traditional Energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and the remediation techniques of Osteopathy. By integrating the prime aspects of these modalities and through the creation of a safe, awake and caring healing environment, Zenthai has evolved to become an effective structural and energetic form of therapy.

Philosophy

Bring ancient and modern Yoga philosophy into practice; on the mat, in the classroom, and into life.

« A person who lives moment to moment, who goes on dying to the past, is never attached to anything. Attachment comes from the accumulated past. If you can be unattached to the past every moment, then you are always fresh, young, just born. You pulsate with life and that pulsation gives you immortality. You are immortal, only unaware of the fact. »

-Bhagavad Gita

Energetics

Rediscover Vinyasa Yoga as an energetic and healing practice. Gain a better understanding of the universal physical and energetic principles from traditions such as the Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Vinyasa systems.

Ultimately, it is our aim to make the information come to life as we adapt our teaching towards the special needs of each student. Through this understanding, we have a knowledgeable platform to read the body in an energetic and wholistic way, create effective hands on assists and teach yoga in a therapeutic and transformational way.

Explore how breath, bandha, mudra and dristi are the four cornerstones of the inner practice. Also, study the effects of the Pancha Vayus, the 5 Elements, and the Chakra system on our practice.

Business of Yoga

Discussion on the journey a living the life of a Yoga teacher. Receiving proficient training, teaching group classes + privates, creating workshops, developing a brand, starting a studio, creating a unique style, and developing a teacher’s training program.

Discuss what it takes to become a traveling teacher. Developing workshops; what are the elements that make a workshop different from a regular class? We will discuss the art of presenting an themed workshop for studios and festivals that are unique and inspiring.

Marketing – The basics of marketing locally and globally. From creating a captivating website to having a recognizable and admired presence on social media. We will discuss the basics and nuances of presenting your work through photographs, video, and advertisements for your classes, workshops and trainings.

Pranayama & Meditation

Travel deeply into the subtle layers of the practice.. pranayama and meditation. Practice daily pranayama and meditation combined with the asana practice and as a stand alone practice. Within the pranayama practice, we will refine the art of inhalation, exhalation and breath retention. Specific practices such as Nadi shodhana, sama vritti, ujayii, nauli kriya, agni sara, uddiyana bandha, jiva bandha, kappalabhati, surya bhedana, and chandra bhedana.

Within the meditation practice, learn the different seats of practice, meditation on the central channel ( shushumna nadhi ), meditation on the breath, and visualisation practices. Incorporate the practices of pranayama and meditation into your teaching.

Injury Prevention and Therapeutic Application of Asanas

“As yoga teachers we are sought after healers and our students will come to us when they are in pain. It’s important to recognize we may have the tools to help with the pain and minimize the symptoms but we are not health care practitioners and shouldn’t diagnose. We can help our students to make appropriate adjustments to protect and/or strengthen weaker or vulnerable places in their bodies. In doing so, we become a key adjunct to support the patient’s health care provider and can play an important role in their healing.”  -Joan Hyman

Learn Yoga therapeutics and injury management from Joan, Susan, Simon and Gwyn. All excellent in this area, coming from different yet supportive perspectives.

Restorative Yoga

Learn the theory and practice of restorative yoga mainly from the Iyengar tradition, perhaps the most complete system of restorative yoga. Awaken the the parasympathetic nervous by moving slowly, longer holds, use of props to create support in poses and keen observation of breath in the relaxed state.

CANCELED….30 Hour Advanced Teacher Training Intensive – Simon Park and Klara Puski – Nov 5-8, 2020

30 Hour Advanced Teacher Training Intensive – Simon Park and Klara Puski – Nov 5-8, 2020

Advanced Asana Practice, Vinyasa Sequencing for Peak Poses, and the Art of Instruction

Vinyasa Flow Yoga has a wonderful potential to be complete practice: therapeutic and energizing for the body/mind and a path toward spiritual realization. Also, the open format of Vinyasa is a blank canvas for the artist within to guide practices that inspire. In this 4 day advanced intensive, Simon and Klara will guide the exploration of important and subtle aspects of teaching inspiring Vinyasa Yoga as a physical discipline and spiritual practice.

Develop an understanding of the dynamic actions required to make each pose alive. Through intensive practice, visual assessment, and verbal cues, we will explore the principles that build the bridge from a foundational to advanced practice. We begin each day with a complete vinyasa flow practice infused with physical and energetic alignment cues leading into peak inversions, arm balance and backbends. In the second session, we will breakdown key poses and different parts of the practice in a workshop style to refine our embodiment and teaching.

Integrate Vinyasa Krama sequencing: practice linking poses intelligently, grouping small groups of postures toward peak poses, and opening different parts of the body for deeper postures. Discussion of sequencing will include building toward peak poses and focusing within asana families such as standing poses, arm balances, inversions and backbends. 

Gain a better understanding of the physical and energetic principles from the Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Vinyasa systems. We will examine how the universal principles and the unique wisdom of each style, can greatly enhance our overall understanding of balance and energy flow. Thus, we enter into a more knowledgeable place to teach and assist students in a wholistic way. Ultimately, we must make the teachings alive, as we adapt our teaching towards the unique needs of each student. Learn to develop yoga classes and privates for all levels, integrating a deeper understanding of alignment to help your students safely grow in their practice. The immersion is designed for teachers from all traditions of yoga and experienced practitioners. 

Finally, we will explore linking the physical practice with the spiritual path through the introduction of yogic themes and dharma talks. The conscious decision to create the space for others to explore their self-realization is perhaps the most difficult bridge to pass in your teaching career. Yet, it may be the most most important; allowing students to pass from a purely physical space toward self exploration and growth.

Become dedicated to moving away from scripted teaching toward creative artistry… the process of becoming absolutely present with your students. Simon and Klara both have many years of of study, practice, and assisting with Maty Ezraty, Dona Holleman, Shiva Rea, 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. 

· Learn to give precise and effective verbal instruction through visual assessment, understanding healthy patterns of movement and teaching balancing actions. This is especially valuable when teaching online and Zoom classes.

· Practice and Teach Pranayama + Meditation 

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

· Theming and Integrating Yogic principles into your teaching.

* Plus Special Workshops on Inversions, Arm-Balances, Backbends, and Slow Flow Restorative Classes

Bio: Simon Park began his Yoga journey in 1995 with Shiva Rea in the World Arts and Cultures Department at UCLA. Later acclaimed by Yoga Journal as “one of the most influential and gifted Yoga teachers of the next generation”, he has been leading workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats around the world since 2002. His free-style Vinyasa is fluid, intuitive, and encourages freedom through self-expression. Profoundly influenced by the teachings of Shiva Rea, Richard Freeman, Maty Ezraty, Joan White, and Dharma Mitra, ‘Liquid Flow Yoga’ feels like a beautiful dance between classical and modern Yoga. Dubbed the “Flying Nomad”, he draws inspiration from road legends such as Jimi Hendrix, who said, “the Earth is my home”. www.liquidflowyoga.com

Bio: Klara Puski is an advanced certified Jivamuki teacher based in Paris. Dancing since the age of five, she was always fascinated by the physical body & movement she completed her education at the Hungarian Dance Academy in classical ballet in Budapest and continued to work as a professional dancer. Then in early 2013 she tried Jivamukti Yoga in Munich which was a transformational discovery in which she happily remains immersed. By May 2014, she completed her teacher training in New York, with Jivamukti Yoga founders Sharon Gannon and David Life, mentored by Giselle Mari. Since returning Klara has been leading classes around different studios in Paris. She feels blessed to be able to teach and equally sees it as an opportunity to serve, share and learn. The last years she has been studying with incredible teachers like Dona Holleman, Maty Ezraty, Simon Park and Krista Cahill. http://www.klarapuski.com/

4 ateliers avec Antoine Pommet “Mobilisez-vous”


C’est une très belle surprise, nous recevons Antoine Pommet pour 4 ateliers.

De Montréal, Antoine Pommet emmène son expertise et sa passion d’un yoga ludique et dynamique partout où il voyage. Il offre une pratique de Yoga Vinyasa, Hatha et Yin humble mais exigeante qui n’exclut surtout pas le jeu ni le rire. Dans son enseignement, Antoine aborde les poses dans le respect du corps pour explorer les limites du dépassement personnel.

C’est une pratique qui privilégie le mouvement consciencieux et l’observation immobile du spectacle intérieur. L’échange et l’écoute sont au centre de son enseignement et à la base d’un apprentissage où le plaisir doit rester prioritaire.

Son étude du Yoga a débuté à Los Angeles en 2014 avec la formation de Moksha/Modo Yoga où il affirme avoir été  particulièrement fasciné par l’approche de la Yoga thérapie de Laurier-Pierre Desjardins et est convaincu que le cours d’anatomie de Dina Tsouluhas a corrompu son esprit. Il a eu la chance d’étudier avec Ted Grand et Jessica Robertson, co-fondateurs de Moksha/Modo.

Suite à sa première année de formation, il a enseigné presque chaque jour de chaque année – il prend un plaisir particulier à enseigner le jour de son anniversaire et les jours de nouvelle année. Son parcours d’enseignant est intimement lié à celui de l’éternel étudiant qu’il est. Il complète une première formation de Vinyasa en 2015 avec Dina Tsouluhas. Cette formation est le déclencheur d’un processus de mentorat avec Tsouluhas (formatrice avec Modo Yoga depuis les premières activités du groupe en 2005). En 2018, il complète deux formation complémentaires : The Art Of Teaching Kula Yoga aux États-Unis avec Schuyler Grand et Nikki Vilella (respectivement propriétaires de Wanderlust Hollywood et co-propriétaires de Kula Yoga Project à New York) puis une formation d’enseignement du Yin avec Gemma Vassallo à Paris.

Pour Antoine, vivre pour apprendre c’est apprendre à vivre.
