Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa Hṛdayam - Teacher Training Programme Module One with Dario Calvaruso
About the Training
Introduction Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa is a Sanskrit term that refers to the method in which 9 movements (nava = nine + karaṇa = unit of movement) are harmoniously put into a composition (vinyāsa) to create a sequence (krama). Dario Calvaruso developed the Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa™ Methodology after over 20 years of study, research, practice and teaching. This method re-systematises the ancient practice and teaching of karaṇas and vinyāsa.
Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa Hṛdayam Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa Hṛdayam (the essentials of Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa) focuses on how to practise and teach a collection of 12 series named Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa Mālā. The syllabus is structured into 4 distinct modules. Each module of 108hours consists of an in-depth study, practice and teaching skills of three series. The full syllabus of 12 series is covered in 4 modules (total 432 hours).
Navakaraṇa Krama Mālā Navakaraṇa Vinyāsa Mālā (a collection of Navakaraṇa compositions) consists of 30 sequences (krama) arranged into 12 series. The sequences (krama) include compositions of movements and postures given in progression, thereby allowing practitioners to personalise the practice according to their own levels. Every sequence works holistically on the physical, praṇic and mental levels. Each sequence works integrally on the whole body but with a specific anatomical focus.
