The Prasha Method is the Pranashama Vinyasa Yoga System.
Created by Dashama, this method includes 10 unique yoga workshops to
balance, strengthen and heal.
"Dashama's light and wisdom filters into every aspect of her unique approach to yoga. We deepened throughout our daily practice and group endeavors, while enjoying the liveration of exploring the island as we felt called. It was the perfect combination of freedom within a beautifully choreographed dance. I remain grateful and inspired for that time."

Yoga Fundamentals- from Bandhas, Breathwork and Balance
The 3 B's. This fundamental workshop
will leave you with a rock solid understanding of the most integral
aspects of yoga for your own practice as well as to be able to teach
others. Bandhas- the energetic and muscular mind/body connection and
control necessary to achieve the highest levels of a Hatha Yoga
practice. Breathwork- several pranayama techniques will be explored as
well as their benefits and proper time and place of practice. Balance
on all levels (mind, body, spirit and emotions) will be explored.
Physical balance practices will bridge the gap to ensure all layers are
activated and balanced during your Hatha Yoga Practice.
Your Body is A Temple & You are the Master Architect
Whether you love living in the temple
of your body right now or not, I've got Great news for you! You get a
whole new body every 7 years, according to scientific evidence. This
means that any health and wellness practice you begin today, has the
potential to completely reconstruct your entire body right now. This
includes dietary habits, mental beliefs about yourself, physical
exercise and lifestyle habits, and any other habits that you currently
embrace. So, if your current habits aren't serving you: providing you
with the highest levels of natural energy, great nights sleep, pain free
living from a strong and agile body- it's not too late! In this
workshop we will explore the basic fundamentals of healthy habits. The
physical practice will be a vinyasa yoga sequence designed to open and
balance root chakra energy (hamstrings, inner thighs and glutes) staying
low to the ground and connecting to Mother Earth.
Surfing your Inner Waves to Balance your Emotions
Emotions flow through us like waves in
the deep blue sea of our soul. They control the barometer of our lives
if we give into them. Primarily a function of our 2nd Chakra,
Sacral/Swadhisthana, this area is correlated to our hips and Uddyana
Bandha. Learn effective techniques to master the waves of emotion, thus
mastering your life. This flow based workshop focuses on fluid
movements, to connect with the water like quality within you. A strong
emphasis on hip openers and breathing mantras to move prana/energy
through you, releasing what may be limiting you- leaving you open to
receive the divine blessings of peace, love, joy and fulfillment that
are in store for your life. Teacher Trainees will learn variations and
modifications to teach all level students.
Fire of Transformation- Embracing Your Edge
Manipura is the fire of
transformation, that comes from the core center of your Being- your
Solar Plexus (3rd Chakra)- and when we ignite it through this vigorous
and challenging yoga practice, you will be forever transformed. We walk
right up to the edge of what you thought were limits and FLY- Soaring
High into the Stratosphere and Become One with the Inner Radiant Light.
This module/workshop is designed for levels 2/3. You will leave knowing
you touched your edge, went beyond your comfort zone and having real
tools and techniques to access this power in the future. For Aspiring
Teachers: an emphasis on the language that inspires, motivates and
moves yoga practitioners, this training will teach you to convey this
transformative practice to your students of all levels, regardless of
their current ability or motivation level. BE Inspiring. Be a Flame that
Ignites, Be the Fire of Transformation, Illumination and Radiance.
Sailing the Winds of Love- Journey into the Heart
In this magical exploration of life's
greatest gift: LOVE, you will experience upper and mid back openers like
you've never felt before. The "back" of the heart is where we store
many of our earlier emotional tension from childhood, relationships and
unmet expectations from life. Working with asanas, breath,
visualization, and mantras we learn to release that which is not serving
you to become more free to love and be loved, to share compassion,
forgiveness, empathy and joy. Back bending emphasized in this class, as
well as shoulder openers, neck stretching and self massage techniques.
If she is available, special guest Sula DePaula may share a
transformational breathing session with the group as well.

syllables that harmonize and balance the chakras. This class will also

the Supreme Creator. Union with all living beings, angels, spirit
