Step out of your comfort zone and explore teaching and practicing new poses, mantras and creative sequencing! Jasmine Tarkeshi and Kate Duyn Cariati along with senior Lotus Teachers will bring the wisdom and creativity from their years of personal practice, study and teaching to facilitate a space for inquiry, inspiration and initiation into becoming a more confident, creative and compassionate teacher as you deepen your devotion to your personal Sadhana. Reignite your passion for your practice and teaching!
This intensive and 300 hour advanced mode focuses on the architecture of Lotus Flow and setting up the flow to set it free- allowing your personal expression of asana to shine through! We will fully explore the philosophy of Vinyasa Karma, wise progression, in sequencing towards advanced asana or a “Maha Pose". We will start each day getting physical, exploring the framework of Lotus Flow through the Chakra system and physical anatomy while the afternoon lectures will cover topics including creating authentic themes and Dharma talks, threading the theme, the use of music, movement and mantra in your classes. Discover how these tools will amplify your classes while inspiring your teaching.
