Discover the science of holistic vinyasa yoga sequencing

In this 4-day training, we’ll unpack peak yoga postures, do a deep dive into Lila Flow Yoga Wave Theory sequencing, discuss themes, explore subtle body practices, and examine how and why we aim to create balance in the muscle groups and nervous system in a yoga class.

This program features the history and practice of vinyasa yoga, specifically, Prana Vinyasa Flow pioneered by my teacher, Shiva Rea. This style of yoga embodies movement, chanting, music, and breath control to direct the life force/energy (Prana).

We are taking a maximum of 20 people to keep it intimate.

Meet Your Host:

Hi, I’m Clara,

I’m a yoga teacher and trainer, and founder of the Lila School of Vinyasa Yoga.

I’m super passionate about vinyasa yoga and have been teaching the Art of Sequencing for 15+ years.
My goal is to assist teachers in developing a holistic approach to vinyasa yoga sequencing and show students the power of experiential movement practices.

You can read more about my style of yoga and the teachers I’ve studied with.

Who This Training is For:

Advanced students & teachers looking to deepen their knowledge and yoga practice.

▴ For teachers, this experience will help you create more memorable yoga classes as you develop a voice and vision for the structure and style of your vinyasa yoga sequencing.

We’ll go over technicalities concerning alignment, how to stabilize the corresponding muscle groups for your peak pose/flow, and how to create balance in the nervous system through pranayama (breath)

We’ll also cover how to select the right elements that contribute to and help communicate your theme. Yoga classes that are anchored in a theme can dramatically alter the overall feeling of the yoga class in the body and mind of students; how you sequence, speak, select music, position yourself and use props and space contribute to the Bhavana (mood) of the class.

▴ For advanced students, this is an opportunity to empower your practice; you’ll learn about peak poses, how to prepare the body for them and why we do specific postures at a given time, and lastly, how to modify for different body types. This experience gives students a guide to the vinyasa yoga practice, and how to align and adjust for what your body may need at any given time.
 
 

What You Will Learn:

  • Modifications and advanced variations of peak poses.

  • Holistic sequencing to build towards a peak pose/flow.

  • The six families of poses and how to balance targeted muscle groups.

  • Subtle body practices to stimulate and ground the nervous system.

  • The importance of voice, language, and music in curating a class.

  • Modifications for injury, pregnancy, and yogis of all levels.

Daily Itinerary:

  • PRACTICE 6-8 am | 2-hour vinyasa class (live)

  • BREAK 8-10 am | watch the on-demand tutorial of the LIVE class.

  • LEARN 10-12 pm | 2-hour lecture (live)

  • ENGAGE 12-1 pm | 1-hour breakout room (live)

“Clara’s training helped me break out of my comfort zone by giving me the skills to teach aspects of the practice that I wasn’t previously confident in, such as leading mantra for a group. I left each module of training feeling more confident and inspired as a teacher, and that shows up in my public classes and online offerings. Following Clara’s training, I have been able to step into the role of offering continuing education for other yoga teachers in my community. I’m so glad I chose to continue my yogic studies with Clara as it was the perfect step to help challenge me and push me towards growth as a teacher."

Can you provide me with proof of tuition payment for my own business or tax purposes?

Is there help in finding your voice and own personal style?

Yes! This course is tailored to help teachers discover their unique voices to create classes that resonate with students. All students in training will be encouraged to choose elements and themes that they find inspiring to create class sequences. The purpose is to find what lights you up and bring it into your class to offer to your students.

Is the Art of Sequencing Training recognized by Yoga Alliance, even if it’s online?

YES! On September 25, 2020, Yoga Alliance confirmed it is now approving all online registrations until the end of 2021. This means that if if you register for the July 2021 Art of Sequencing Training, you will receive Yoga Alliance Approved Certification for the 20 CE credits. 

Yoga Alliance understands that with the changing landscape due to COVID< in-person events are no longer possible. Institutions and schools worldwide are petitioning Yoga Alliance to change their mandates to approve online programming to make courses accessible to students worldwide.

Not in the least! Anyone interested in deepening their practice, understanding, and application of vinyasa yoga is welcome to take the 4-day weekend training. This course is meant for those who want to dive deep into Prana Flow Wave Theory by Shiva Rea and weave unique themes and elements into their classes. Students who do not teach will have the opportunity to learn about yoga asana and the subtle body and spend four days developing their practice with peak postures and vinyasa flows.

Absolutely. There’s no better way to learn about the practice than to dive in and experience it first-hand. This training is open to yogis of all levels. You do not need to have a previous practice or understanding of vinyasa yoga before this training to dive in!

If I am pregnant, can I take this program?

Yes. I’ve taught many classes, workshops, retreats, and training with pregnant yogis present. The biggest thing is to listen to your body, rest when necessary, and modify the poses as you need. I have a video, Modifications for Pregnancy, on Practice with Clara as a resource.

If I’m a teacher, what style of yoga will I be certified under? 

You will receive a certification in vinyasa yoga, specifically Wave Theory, from Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow Yoga.

Yes! I’ve taught students from all over the world, including the U.K., Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Canada, U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Spain, and Portugal!

Are there any live sessions in the program?

Yes, the lecture, breakout rooms, and Q&A are all live and hosted via Zoom. The 2-hour vinyasa classes are on-demand and will be hosted on my site Practice with Clara for you to get a feel for how to create on-demand content. I will go over how to host live and on-demand classes during the training. 

Do I require an internet connection while taking the program, or can I view lectures offline?

Yes, you will require a reliable internet connection as the entire program is web-based. You will also need the most up-to-date version of the Google Chrome browser. Our programming is most compatible with this browser.

 

If the 2-hour vinyasa classes are on-demand, what opportunities are there for faculty support and interaction with other students?

For each of the four days of this training, students are provided with four 2-hour vinyasa yoga classes created by Clara Roberts-Oss.
The classes are hosted on Practice with Clara, and all participants receive a 3-month membership with the training.
These classes are exclusive to the training members and will be labeled by date as the lecture in the afternoon will be on the specified 2-hour class of that day. 

The day’s lecture, breakout rooms, and Q&A will all be themed for the day’s on-demand yoga class, so students are encouraged to have taken the class before the lecture to get the most out of the experiences. 

  • The program has a LIVE Q&A with Clara where students engage with one another and faculty throughout the program.
  • We also have a private FB Group for students and faculty to engage and ask questions before, during, and after the training experience.

Yes, by the end of this 4-day training, you will have a deeper awareness and understanding of Prana Flow Wave Theory and create unique yoga classes around a mood and theme. 

 

Does my access to the digital course materials expire?

We provide all participants with a 3-month membership to Practice with Clara to access the classes and materials discussed during the training. 

I notice that some other programs offer Lifetime Access. Why do you not provide this?

The truth is quite simple. For us to offer Lifetime Access, we would have to increase the price point on our training. 

All students will always have access to our private FB Group to engage with staff and fellow yogis. 

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we offer payment plans. We understand that times may be challenging and financial resources can be limited. Please email us at [email protected] for details.
