Liquid Flow Yoga Teacher's Immersion: Deepen Your Practice, Refining Teaching Skills, Hands on Assisting, Introduction to Yoga Therapeutics

Join Simon Park as he makes his first appearance at Balance Yoga Studio for this Teacher Immersion into the Art of Vinyasa Yoga. We will dive deeply into flow practice with detailed alignment, creative sequences, and freedom of movement. We will also look at the traditional roots of Vinyasa and the development into the modern flow style. Simon's style called " Liquid Flow Yoga " is a multi-disciplinary system that allows each student and teacher to find their own voice and style within the great tree of Yoga. Simon has devoted the past 22 years to synthesize the great lessons and wisdom of his primary teachers; Shiva Rea, Maty Ezraty, Richard Freeman, Dharma Mittra and Joan White.
Continuously inspired by the words of Bruce Lee - " Learn the Principle. Abide by the Principle. Dissolve the Principle ";  The primary focus is to allow the teachings from the various traditions to evolve towards the needs of the student in the present moment by exploring relationships within the holistic Yoga practice rather than looking only at separate areas. This weekend Teacher's immersion will also have a strong emphasis on understanding Yoga as a healing practice ; incorporating related traditions such as Thai Massage, hands on assisting, reading the body in an energetic way, and therapeutic application of yoga asanas. The immersion is designed for teachers from all traditions of yoga and experienced practicioners.
Flow with the Force - Freestyle Vinyasa 
A Vinyasa Flow practice that is a blend of classical and modern styles. Practice dynamic asana as a movement mediation in an open system that guides the student to feel the Yoga practice as an unscripted adventure. There is a focus on the inner workings of the breath on the body and mind; artful and creative transitions that add elegance to the flow of the practice. Alignment is detailed and energetic, yet adaptive for the individual practicioner. The principles of Vinyasa Krama are utilized to create an evolutionary practice that is appropriate for students of all levels. 

Freedom On The Edge - Inversions + Arm Balances 
Inversions and Arm Balances are pure expression of creative energy flowing through the body. Experience fearless flying, pranic body of power, agility and lightness. Float effortlessly by integrating physical + energetic alignment, dynamic movement with bandha and intelligent Krama sequencing. Learn a pathway of flows within a powerful Vinyasa workshop so that you can evolve to enjoying handstands, inversions and flying transitions in the center of the room with creative energy and empowered vitality. This workshop is for all levels from adventurous beginners to handstand monkeys! 

Hip + Shoulder Opening = Blissful Backbends 
Backbends are a beautiful balance of grounding and rooting while learning to become fluid and receptive. Learn alignment principles, complementary hip + shoulder openers and the energetic keys towards simple and advanced backbends such as Raja-Kapotasana (King Pigeon), Naturajasana (Cosmic Dancer), Vrichikasana (Scorpion) and drop-backs. A full Vinyasa practice that contains a creative vinyasa krama progression of namaskars, standing poses, core integration, twists and inversions. Backbends without pain can be truly blissful!! 

Liquid Flow Yoga - Restore Your Prana 
Enjoy a slowly developing, flowing  sequence of postures that are fluidly powerful and energetically alive; a movement meditation for mental focus and overall lightness. Create space in the joints and spine, calm the nervous system and balance your energy. The asana flow is similar to the way tai-chi is practiced; slow, methodical and meditative. The practice seamlessly integrates fluid namaskars, deep hip-openers, restorative twisting, backbending and calming forward bends. Experience an evolution toward blissful relaxtion, pranayama and meditation.
