This training counts toward the ParaYoga Master Training program.
Vinyasa Krama means “wise progression.” It refers to the ancient and time tested principles of
sequencing which are the foundation for the high art of truly skilled, compelling and powerful
teaching–the essential piece that separates great yoga teachers from the rest. In this training with
ParaYoga® Level III teacher René Quenell, you’ll learn how the intersection of yoga, ayurveda and
Tantra is the basis for knowing how to sequence a practice(s) in order to achieve any one of an array
of desired outcomes. Explore the principles for radical efficiency and effectiveness in your teaching,
how to address specific physical/mental needs of your students, how to use asana holistically,
maximizing the bio-mechanics of your classes as well as how to maximize the benefits of every class
you teach and/or your personal practice.
In the Vinyasa Krama training, you will learn various methodologies to create a complete practice that
embodies a theme and creates an intentional result.
