Vinyasa Flow Yoga has the great potential to be taught as a complete practice: satisfying for the body and mind, creativity for the artist within, therapeutic and healing, and as a spiritual practice where the teacher has the ability to use their unique voice and experience to help each student explore their own spiritual path. In this advanced training, we will explore the important and subtle aspects of teaching inspiring Vinyasa Yoga. Develop an understanding of the inner, skillful actions required to make each pose and entire practice come vibrantly to life. Through practice, visual assessment, and energetic hands-on assists, we will explore the principles that build the bridge from a foundational to advanced practice. We begin each day with an in-depth vinyasa flow practice infused with detailed physical and energetic alignment. 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. Also, we will integrate Vinyasa Krama: 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 different demographics / abilities / needs of your students, 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 action to create the space for others to explore their spirituality within the asana practice 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 physical place to a direct experience of their own divinity. The spiritual pathway is individual, personal and sacred. It is a path to self-realization. It is an art to be able to share from your experiences.. not as it relates to you, but as it pertains to your students.
Become dedicated to moving away from scripted teaching toward observation and creative artistry.. the process of becoming absolutely present with your students.

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”.
