I’m back in Nicaragua and just taking a moment to reflect on my practice and what I am currently teaching. For several years, I have been addicted to the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. When I say addicted, I mean that in a healthy way……I’m not going to break out in a cold sweat if I don’t get to practice for whatever reason while I am here in Nicaragua. However, during my time in Nicaragua, I have recently developed a huge appreciation for Vinyasa Flow and how I can achieve more postures in working without the restrictions of a set sequence. Anyone that knows me will understand that Vinyasa Flow is beyond my ‘pitta’ comfort zone. It is a surprise to me that I have embraced it. I have been practice and teaching Vinysa Flow both in India and Nicaragua and I am loving it.
When I was invited back to Kranti Yoga, midst my time in Nicaragua, to develop and launch a Vinyasa Flow curriculum, I jumped at the chance. I had been working on my Vinyasa Flow classes and curriculum for a year, during my time at Los Clavos Surf Camp in Nicaragua. The opportunity gave me chance to really think about the pedagogy of how to sequence a successful Vinyasa Flow Class, and in turn, teach the teachers how to teach it.
When you prepare a Vinyasa Flow Class, consider the integrity of each and every pose included in your sequence, familiarity of your peak posture is crucial. Being able to share your experience of how you achieved the posture is what makes a good Vinysasa Flow Class, whether you are in Nicaragua or any other country, it doesn’t matter. A good Vinyasa Flow teacher will share the tiniest of details in order that you get the most out of your practice. And so, after years of Ashtanga Yoga, I am in a great position to share those details with you. I understand every inch of each of the postures that I teach and I am looking forward to sharing this in sunny Nicaragua in the future.
Join me soon Nicaragua to share my Vinyasa Flow practice.
