Sequencing and Mandala Flow

10-17 September 2022 (60 CEUs)

The focus of the Yoga Alchemy Teacher Training is on sequencing intelligent vinyasa flow classes.

If you feel stuck with the same Sun Salutation and wish to fill your creativity bucket, this course is for you!

In this teacher training you will understand how to apply functional anatomy to create safe and effective sequences that strengthen and condition the body, while working creatively on your flexibility and overall health.

You will study the history of vinyasa, and the contemporary fertilization of asana with spirituality, somatic studies, dance, and philosophy. The study of functional anatomy will help you develop amazing sequences that target peak poses.

Location

The location will be at “La Portazza Resort” at the Stagnone Lagoon, in the province of Trapani.

The holiday farm, immersed in the amazing scenery of the Stagnone Natural Reservation in Marsala, is hosted inside an eighteenth century “baglio”, that is a typical Sicilian structure belonging to a noble family and recently refurbished.

The name of the farm (portazza is door) comes from an ancient gate leading to the Lilybeum harbour, the largest in Sicily, which later the Arabs called Marzakalla, God’s Harbour, whence the present name of Marsala town.

In 1800 the land was purchased by a noble family, the Montaltos, who built there a “baglio”, a typical rural building characterized by a large internal court, as well as several lodgings, stables, stores for the harvest, surrounded by farmed lands. The “baglio” was inhabited by the landowners themselves during the summertime, but also by the farmers who worked there all the year round or for the season. The structure had remained unchanged till the recent refurbishing which permitted a restoration respectful of the existing building and, at the same time, its transformation into a comfortable farm based on rural tourism activities.

The lagoon, the largest in Sicily, characterized by shallow waters (1–2 m and often no more than 50 cm). Following the movements of the sand of the lagoon due to the underwater currents, the Isola Grande was formed, around two original islets. The birth of the island closed a part of the sea that was originally open and here, since there are no currents necessary for the exchange, the water has become stagnant, with a temperature above normal.

The Stagnone is a well-known spot at European level for the practice of kitesurfing and other water sports such as windsurfing and SUP.  In fact, there are many schools that welcome thousands of tourists from all over the world every year so you’ll also have the opportunity to practice one of these water sport!
