SÅANA teachers are led by the combination of freedom, bringing their own unique experiences and spirit to class – and foundation, grounding in SÅANA’s guiding principles. The result is a creatively driven, well-rounded, and balanced approach to movement. It’s this balance of creativity & intelligent choices which sets our teachers apart.

About SÅANA method advanced:

The SÅANA Method advanced is the embodiment of SÅANA’s beliefs: move with soul and from the soul, stay grounded in movement, & breathe deep and free.  

SÅANA method advanced breaks the mold of traditional teacher trainings – and encourages the playful exploration of movements from all variety of modalities and disciplines. Trainees will be encouraged to pull inspiration from their daily experience, and learn to channel dynamic movement, breath work, and philosophy into a thoughtful, supportive, and challenging vinyasa class.   

Through workshops on anatomy, strength, philosophy, pranayama, and advanced posture breakdown – trainees will discover how to intelligently assess the body in movement while offering thoughtful options to support students each step of the way.   

The format of this training is defined by each individual student. With the support of senior SÅANA faculty, trainees are offered space for independent study, and encouraged to critically assess and logically apply material, in order to find their own unique approach to creativity in sequencing, teaching, and personal practice.   

By the end of training, trainees will be equipped with the tools and confidence to intelligently sequence a creative vinyasa class without a set structure – and leave with a deeper knowledge of their practice & their own unique teaching voice. 

Teacher Training Includes:

  • 75-hours of guided training 
  • Sequencing deep dive into intelligent & creative sequencing without a set class structure. 
  • Structure and method for leading SÅANA Free flow 
  • Freedom for independent exploration of particular area of movement, with SÅANA faculty support
    Prerequisite: Previous 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training
