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 renowned 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.

René Quenell is an E-RYT 500, Para Yoga Certified Level III, IAYT-certified Structural Yoga Therapist, Reiki Master, Certified Four Desires Trainer, Director of Certification for ParaYoga, and Owner and Founder of Yoga Madre.

With more than 20 years of practice and 16 years of teaching experience, René has a wealth of knowledge to share in the classical yoga tradition, Tantra, Ayurveda, and the healing arts, as well as the business of yoga. René embodies the teachings of yoga through her dedicated practice and mentorship of countless yoga teachers and practitioners.

Skillfully, René guides students beyond the physical and toward deep inner awareness and specializes in advanced practices of meditation, pranayama, and kriya.  She is one of the select few to offer The ParaYoga Master Trainings:  Vinyassa Krama, Tantra and The Four Desires.

As founder of Yoga Madre International, René leads retreats and trainings  in Costa Rica, Belize, India, California, and more.  She was initiated into the Sri Vidya tradition by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD.
