VINYASA TECHNIQUES OF INTEGRATION

A Workshop with YYH Partner and Instructor, Julie Moksim

Most students of yoga will encounter the practice of vinyasa flow at some point during their yoga journey. It is one of the most widely practiced styles of yoga in the world today, taking its roots from the more traditional Ashtanga Yoga of Sri K Pattabhi Jois. Key elements of vinyasa practice draw on the breath, the drishti (point of focus), the mula (an energetic root lock) and intelligent movement to weave together a practice that is dynamic, yet incredibly mindful at the same time.  In this workshop, Julie breaks down and details the elements of vinyasa flow yoga using the sequences of Edward Clark's Tripsichore (trip-sic-uh-ree) Yoga, which has been at the forefront of the vinyasa flow experiment and education for over three decades. Experience and understand what it really means to vinyasa flow. Learn how to move fluidly and as an integrated entity not only within the body itself, but of the body, mind and spirit.

Tripsichore Vinyasa Yoga, a style which has been developing for 30 years, is the evenly metered flow of movement, breath and thought. For curious students and teachers hungry to level-up their practice, you will be mesmerised by the smart discourse on how yogic philosophical ideas play out both in technique and in the meaning of life.

This workshop is held as a two-part series. Each session is 2.5 hours long. Session 1 can be taken on its own. Session 2 must be taken with Session 1. 

Techniques of Integration

In this session, we take the time to really understand what it means to vinyasa flow. We will work step by step through the first six foundational sequences of the Tripsichore vinyasa practice to emphasize the mechanics of breath, mula, drishti and even metered movement. 

You will learn:

  • The first six foundational sequences of the Tripsichore vinyasa practice

  • The difference between vinyasa vs. asana (hatha)

  • Ujayi breath and how it impacts movement in the body

  • A practical understanding and an embodiment of prana energy

  • The concept of the mula and its role in movement

  • Drishti (Yogic gaze) in the context of vinyasa flow

  • Explore the art of continuous movement and meditation

Pre-requisite:

Previous practice in vinyasa and/or hatha yoga

ABOUT JULIE MOKSIM

You may have practiced with Julie at YYH before. She's an instructor as well as partner at YYH. When she's not in Yangon teaching at the studio, you'll most likely find her in Luang Prabang, running the Luang Prabang Yoga co-op which she created, or holding space in one of the many retreats that she holds every year in Northern Laos. Julie has been practicing yoga since 2003 and teaching since 2011 after completing her initial training in Bali under the guidance of Rachel Hull, Anna Smallwood, Emil Wendel, James Newman and Dr. Sujatha Kekada. In 2014, she discovered Tripsichore Yoga and completed an intensive month-long training with founder Edward Clark and Nikki Durrant. Tripsichore has played a transformational role in how Julie practices and teaches yoga. She continues to study under the instruction of Edward Clark. As a teacher, Julie endeavors to take her students beyond asana, to discover how a complete yoga practice can positively impact life.

Flowing with Inversions

We will begin this second session with a short discussion on the philosophy behind vinyasa flow yoga and warm up the body by using the six foundational sequences of Tripsichore Yoga that were introduced in the previous day's session. We will then use the techniques of breath, mula, prana and drishti to make basic inversions stronger, more stable and even more accessible. 

 

You will learn:

  • Philosophy of vinyasa flow yoga

  • Strengthen and stabilize inversions through the techniques of breath, mula and prana

  • Two additional Tripsichore sequences that offer the possibility of flowing in and out of inversions

  • Maintaining composure, the art and the meditation even if we fall out of the inversions
