About the Training

This 200-hour course is a Vinyasa yoga-based training with strong emphasis on alignment and skilful sequencing. The aim is to provide students with the building blocks that create a solid foundation for becoming competent teachers. The goal is to inspire authentic and compassionate teachers with the confidence to skilfully lead 60-min and 90-min classes with integrity and knowledge of alignment and modification of postures.

About Vinyasa yoga
The term Vinyasa is derived from nyasa, meaning “to place,” and vi, meaning “in a special way.” This indicates that we are not throwing our bodies around but are bringing consciousness to each movement in each moment.
Vinyasa can be defined as our external movements that express how we think and feel.
Synonyms: Continuous. Seamless. Integrated. Change. Rhythm. Evolve. Cycle.

  • Steadiness (Sthira)
  • Comfort (Sukha)
  • Smooth and Long Breathing (Prayatna Sithila)
  • Connected. Movement.
  • Vinyasa yoga connects one posture to the next using the breath. This can be thought of as linking or flowing into postures.
  • Move with breath. Breath initiates the movement of Vinyasa, which is why it’s referred to as a “breath-synchronised” practice.
  • Ujjayi Breath is the breathing technique used. It is done by inhaling and exhaling in rhythmically through the nose. The overall sensation is one of relaxation.
  • Vinyasa practice generates heat and can add a cardiovascular component not always present in other forms of postural practice.

*Post-training, Almen will work additionally with individual trainees who wish to proceed to teaching.
*Trainees can have team teach sessions led by Almen in PURE’s public classes within 1 month after the training.

Capacity: 20 students
