Maya Yoga is a highly conscious style of yoga that believes the body and mind are inextricably linked. Maya Yoga vinyasa fusion is a style of yoga that Nicki teaches that draws on her extensive study of both Ashtanga yoga and Iyengar yoga. Nicki believes that the individual student is worth paying attention to and she teaches classes that honor both the individual and the group. "Citta” is the Sanskrit word for consciousness, both within and beyond. One of the meanings of vinyasa is an intelligent sequence of postures. This training will teach you how to create vinyasa practices that are both intelligent, challenging, and safe for all students. It is not enough to only be conscious of our bodies in asana, we must also be conscious of our mind when we practice and throughout our day. In this training, we will continue to study the yoga sutras of Patanjali as they give support to us in our practice and help us to understand the connection of the mind in consciousness. We will chant yoga sutras daily as part of the morning practice and will study them throughout the course. There will be opportunity to teach the vinyasa sequences you create and to receive feedback on your teaching.
This course may be combined with the 100 Hour Foundations course to create a 200 Hour YA RYT certificate.
Join Nicki at the Maya Yoga studio on Maui to continue to develop both your yoga practice and your teaching.
Topics covered include Asana, Pranayama, Intelligent Sequencing, Bandha, Mudra, Chanting, Anatomy, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy and Psychology, Seeing and Understanding Bodies, Physical & Verbal Adjustments, Modifications, and Restorative yoga
