Elemental Vinyasa Krama 2

100 hours to integrate your practice

Over time, yoga routines can become monotonous. Even if you are a teacher, your classes can give the feeling of always being the same.

But there is a way to make the practice different everyday and give it a more integral meaning. To activate you when you feel reluctant, to take root when you feel volatile.

If you want to learn to create creative sequences and adapt them to keep you in balance in the face of any internal or external circumstance, such as those we use in the classes we teach daily in the yoga studio, here I will show you how.

Some people really get more out of yoga than others, and it’s not about being male or female, having experience, or being more or less flexible. It has nothing to do with it, there is another much more important reason.

On a summer Tuesday, I was roasting with heat.

At that time I practiced 4 sequences of Rocket yoga with small modifications that alternated 6 days a week. On Tuesdays it was Rocket 2. Period.

The sum of the outside heat with the increase in temperature caused by the Rocket practice made me begin to have hives all over my body when I finished.

Everything itched.

It made me feel unkind to myself. It felt violent.

Because “having to get to a posture” increases ego and competitiveness. Because where you don’t go treating yourself with respect, you go with the ego and the muscle.

You start to force your breath, to overstrain yourself. You tense your shoulders, clench your teeth. And you no longer pay attention to the sensations.

And you start causing yourself pain.

Isn’t yoga supposed to be about treating ourselves with respect, being aware of our perceptions, focusing on the breath, and being present? What have we missed?

So I decided to start modifying the practice and look for a meaning beyond reaching postures at any price.

In that search I learned from Shiva Rea the use of the elements to create different effects on my body and mind.

If one day my head was wild, I could stop it. If a very hot day made it difficult for my body to respond, I could counter it with a subtle practice, with circular movements.

I took this Elemental Prana Vinyasa and interpreted it with a structure of progressive asanas accessible to anyone.

From the simple to the complex (Krama). Also adapting it to the seasons and the lunar cycles.

Since then, my practice everyday is different. I improvise knowing exactly the effect of each asana. Just as a musician uses different notes to create different emotions, I know that

if I make linear movements, I generate heat and direct my focus,

if I do pulsations, I increase my creativity and my adaptability,

if I make slow and firm movements, I work my patience, my stability and self-confidence.

And that makes the practice make sense. That is what really makes us benefit from the practice of yoga.

Elemental Vinyasa Krama 2

is an intensive 100-hour course, with 7 interconnected modules in which you will learn

The connection between our posture and our emotions.

Increase your sensitivity to your own internal dialogue, the emotions it generates and how it is reflected in your body.

Why do lunar cycles and seasons affect our mood and energy level?

What are the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, air and space) and how to relate them to the different movement patterns?

How to use the elements to counteract the effects of the lunar cycles and the seasons?

How to make creative sequences based on the characteristic movements of each element? A movement pattern taught multiple times through different asanas. Inspired by Elemental Prana Vinyasa from Shiva Rea.

Adapt the namaskares (greetings). How to prepare the body for the different types of asanas of each element?

What chakras are related to each element and how are they related to asanas?

Meditation, pranayama, mantra, mudra and essential oils linked to each element.

Anatomical foundations that underpin the entire practice:

  1. Anatomical pattern of hip openings for the earth element.
  2. Regulation of body fluids, lymphatic or urinary system. Anatomical pattern of the column extensions for the water element.
  3. Digestive system. Anatomical pattern of twists and arm balances for the fire element.
  4. Respiratory mechanics. Anatomy of the rib cage and the shoulder girdle. Anatomical pattern of the chest openings for the air element.
  5. Central nervous system and how the space element integrates everything.

How to plan sequences in waves or 3-part vinyasas?

How to integrate the sutras in your day to day life? What I learned from Gabby Bernstein and his spirit junkie philosophy.

You have a hidden Power.
You are a dreamer of your dream.
You are always being guided, even when you think it is not.
Your vibrations speak more clearly than your words.
The universe works fast when you’re having a good time.
Obstacles are detours that take you in the right direction.
Certainty clears the way so that what you desire can arrive.
The universe speaks in mysterious ways.
Uniqueness sets you free.
You are the Universe.
When you think you’ve surrendered, surrender more.
Be an instrument of love.

This year I did the teacher training in this wonderful place and it has been a magical and transformative experience.
Libby’s Light can make you feel accompanied from the first moment, in a safe environment, without judgment and in which the main response is LOVE.
I recommend from the heart to anyone who visits Pure Yoga, to start practicing by going to regular classes or to deepen their practice by doing a training.
The space, the sights and sounds of the sea, Libby and all the teachers make you, at least during the hour that you are on your mat, connect, love and take care of yourself. With their light they remind us of our light.

An incredible place to practice a few meters from the ocean, you can even hear the waves! A surreal experience. A recommended place for any yoga lover. Congratulations to the great Libby and her amazing team!

The training has been wonderful, a gift from its beginning to its end, of course I recommend it 100% to anyone who wants to investigate more in yoga (on and off the matt).

The place is incredible, the best possible, you get lost in that ocean and with the sound of the waves that makes you vibrate inside and recharge. The team always ready to help you and be there accompanying you on the road, they are all incredible.
