Humaliwo: Summer Flow Arts / Chakra Vinyasa / Yoga Trance Dance / Prana Danda Vinyasa
With Shiva Rea and Demetri Velisarius
August 19 - 25, 2017
Residential Humaliwo Retreat Sacred Space+ Zuma Sanctuary, Malibu, CA
Join us for our annual Summer Pranafication! Located on ocean view grounds with a practice space on hand-carved Italian lime stone. Within a five minute walk we have private access to the sacred beach or hiking in the mountains. Diving deep in the Prana Vinyasa Teacher Training Foundation and Advanced Vinyasa modules, we will be able to enter into the rhythm of living yoga including teacher self-care, deep prana vinyasa solar-lunar practice, morning and evening meditation, altar and ritual life, community life, and nourishing organic vegetarian (vegan options) food.
Through this practical and inspirational exploration of the chakra system and yogic body, we will develop a transformative approach to the body mandala and learn to assess our imbalances and translate this into practical vinyasa yoga sequences for our self, private students, group classes, and living the flow of yoga.
Yoga Trance Dance Teacher Training
Evolving since 1994, Yoga Trance Dance emerged from leading innovator Shiva Rea’s
immersion and research into ritual dance while living in India, Africa, the Caribbean and Bali.
Learn to lead this internationally celebrated prana yoga and free-form movement meditation.
For yoga teachers and yogadventurers who are interested in the interconnections of yoga and dance, this Trance Dance intensive provides the basic tools to explore the foundations of yogatrancedance™.
PranaDandaYoga is an empowering and fluid way to center the mind and awaken the energetic spine (inner danda) by engaging with a specially designed 5 foot staff (outer danda). In yogic tradition the danda is perceived as a reflection of the central energy channel, a symbol of present-moment rootedness and serves as the pivotal axis which grounds one’s practice in guardianship; the penetrating quality of alertness that neutralizes all distraction.
