West Coast Modules 

 Embodying Earth: Foundation Earth

As the first “pathway” of the all-level Pathways of Prana Vinyasa system, this foundation earth Prana Vinyasa sequence massages your inner and outer hips, hamstrings, side-waist, shoulder and heart opening through the positive repetition of this three-wave prana vinyasa sequence. In this module, teachers begin to learn the Foundation Earth Prana Vinyasa sequence, centered in the hip-opening family. Through the opening movement meditation, classical and dancing warrior namaskars, core cultivation, prana vinyasa wave sequence, peak asana, and lunar mudrasanas of the bhujapidasana and visvamitrasana sequence, we will slowly and effectively embody the flow of prana connected to hip opening, our relationship to the earth and our instinctual body.
