From the Ground Up

Prajna Yoga training with Djuna Mascall


I teach the work of Tias Little and my trainings are interchangeable with his 200hr teacher training in Santa Fe, NM. The program is for students who wish to teach yoga as well as for dedicated students to deepen their practice and further their understanding of yoga.
    The Prajna approach to the practice of yoga is classical, yet multidimensional. Rather than a prescription to teach a given system, this program is an invitation to cultivate a language of yoga that articulates the body in asana and pranayama and incorporates the study of poetry, sutras, myths, and chanting. We inspire students to discover new associations and tap their inner strength and unique gifts. Students are empowered to practice and teach from a place of creativity, adaptability, and imagination~ and ultimately “attain insight” or “prajna.”
200hr Certification Requirements (sessions do not need to be taken in order):
Session 1 | From the Ground Up
Session 2 | The Fluid Body
Session 3 | The Subtle Body
Mastering the Basics
Additional trainings and workshops to reach 200hrs.

From the Ground Up

October 7-12, 2019

This session explores the foundational teachings of the yoga practice with an emphasis on how the feet are “the foundation to the temple of the body”.

Progress on the path depends on strong legs and deep breath. This session explores the ancient traditions with a contemporary insight into the body-mind connection. Students build stability in their legs through standing poses that spontaneously lead to the lift of the yoga bandhas – mula and uddiyana bandhas. To open the heart-mind, we will cultivate loving kindness (metta) and hone the essentials of mindfulness training.

Course of Study:

  • Yoga anatomy: experience myofascia through movement and map the body’s five myo-fascial sheaths

  • Bio-mechanical function of the feet, knees and legs

  • Nadis, Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians and Ayurveda marma points

  • The sacrum and poses relative to the lower two chakras – muladhara and svadhisthana chakras

  • The Three Jewels: the Buddha (awakened mind), Dharma (the teachings) and Sangha (the community)

  • The Eightfold Path of the Buddhist teachings and the Four Foundations of Mindfulness
