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.

With 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.
