The renowned yoga instructor Acharya Vinay Kumar will come to Las Palmas in March 2023 to give an intensive Prana Vashya yoga course.
This is a full month Prana Vashya Intensive Course. You can choose the traditional 4 week program or a 2 week course. To benefit from the full spectrum of Yogacharya Vinay Kumar’s teachings, it is highly recommended to take part in the Intensive Course.
Both the morning and the afternoon classes, as well as the Pranayama practice complement and build upon each other. All classes will be taught through English in this Intensive Yoga Course with Acharya Vinay Kumar in Las Palmas.
Prana Vashya Vinyasa Sequences
Prana Vashya Primary Series comprises 60 well curated asanas which are performed in a particular sequence, and uses Prana Vashya Vinyasa Krama in between specific Asanas for continuity, and to ensure attention to breathing.
The Primary series is open to practitioners of all levels. An experienced practitioner who is flexible and gets into postures can join the Prana Vashya sequence to get the alignment, mobility and breathing even better. A beginner with a lesser flexibility and command over the body who finds it hard to perform all the postures can benefit from specific variations in alignment, which will help in developing flexibility and awareness of their physical capabilities within a short period of time.
Once the practitioner gains better control over posture, flexibility and breath, the practitioner can progress on to the Prana Vashya Secondary Series to ensure continuity of practice and enhance the knowledge of Yoga.
Acharya Vinay Kumar does not discriminate between any style of Yoga practice. He appreciates the knowledge and approach of different styles of Asana practice. He is of the firm belief that it is not the style but the dedication, approach, stimuli and the understanding between the practitioner and the teacher that brings about the best results.
The journey of a practitioner has the Yoga Asana at its core. This is based on the belief that dedication and regular practice will enhance the physical capabilities such as awareness, flexibility, and control. This is far from the truth. While the development of the physical form is indeed a known benefit of the Yoga Asana, a true practitioner goes beyond the physical awareness and explores the vastness of the mind. When the practitioner wants to experience his existence beyond the physical limits, the practice of Pranayama helps him on the sacred path. Regular practice of Pranayama helps in developing the control over the myriad thoughts and patterns by learning to control the mind.
Acharya Vinay Kumar is a renowned exponent of the Pranayama and is one of the most sought-after teachers. He shares his experience of over 21 years with his students so they too can benefit from the Pranayama techniques.
It has been proven that the practice of Pranayama techniques helps in maintaining the desired energy levels in practitioners, or people who are engaged in intense physical activities daily, such as practicing twice a day or doing some heavy physical work.
The practitioner learns to perform advanced and demanding postures with increased flexibility and ease. The unique and highly specialized technique of therapeutic exercises provide a safe yet dynamic development in flexibility and back bending.
The Back Bending course does not have a set sequence of Asana. It focuses on the practitioners’ requirements, capabilities on an individual basis. Each practitioner is given a sequence to reduce muscle rigidity and increase flexibility. The key being that the practitioner is allowed to relax in between asanas to feel its full impact. Advanced postures are broken down to suit each practitioner’s need, and as a result, the overall practice gets enhanced greatly.
Acharya Vinay Kumar’s back bending techniques are very well known to reduce stress and help in increasing the oxygen levels in the body.
Muscle Strengthening and Development
These techniques work on developing the core which is vital and ensures consistency in form, posture and structure while doing the Asanas. This practice enhances the awareness of the position and movement of the body, which in turn helps the practitioner stay focused, and prepares them to perform the balancing postures with ease. The techniques taught by Acharya Vinay Kumar are also used as therapies for those who suffer from joint instability or have muscle injuries.
Prana means breath, considered as a life-giving force. Vashya means capable of being subdued, controllable, governable. And the term dynamic means to be in constant change or action. At Prana Vashya Yoga, the emphasis is on the synchronization in between movement and breath and the control over both.
Throughout the practice, the practitioner is taught precise breathing techniques which are accompanied with each movement, be it staying in a particular position or asana or moving in or out of it. This harmony between breath and movement can only be achieved by concentrating on the balance in between both the elements.
The Prana is the source of all activities. The power of the Prana is directly related to the state of mind just like it is to the physical body. While it may be easy to nourish the physical body with diet and exercise, it is not so easy to cultivate a calmness of the mind. In fact, the body and mind are correlated in many ways.
