TESTIMONIAL

Pam’s Knowledge and experience as a Yogini and teacher are extensive, my expectations were more than met they were exceeded.

In a world fraught with hectic distraction and competing priorities that seem to change with the wind, I think we desperately need a strong basis of routines and rituals to help us return to our center and find calmness in the tempest that surrounds us. I can say with complete certainty the practice touched me personally and absolutely resonated with my spirit. There is a powerful and thoughtful beauty and elegance to the methodology.

I have had a daily asana practice for several years, mostly in contemporary Yoga studios mixed with some home practice.  As I explore Vinyasakrama more deeply, I can envision my personal practice evolving toward its practice as my primary method of Yoga.

This breath-centric methodology provides an excellent compass within the framework to select elements that focus on specific parts of the body as needed. I find that aspect much more beneficial than, for instance, the rigid structure of Ashtanga Yoga. Whether one has practiced a form of Yoga for a week or a lifetime, one will be well served to engage in the exploration of Vinyasakrama as Pam Johnson presents it.

The immersive approach of the course Pam presents is prefectly suited for truly learning about the Vinyasakrama methodology.  Just as Vinyasakrama itself is based on moving progressively through one’s body, the Vinyasakrama Immersion Pam presents moves progressively and systematically through the vast body of knowledge.  Coupling the knowledge sharing with daily practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation significantly reinforces one’s learning.

I am looking forward with great anticipation to learning more in the second module of the Vinyasakrama Immersion course!

When I started mentoring with Pam, everything came alive for me.

Even seemingly simple things like ujjayi breath became nuanced, profound and interesting because of her depth and breadth of understanding.

I've had the opportunity to take yoga teacher training and related studies from several amazing teachers over the years. However, I didn't feel like everything I learned was completely integrated. One teacher might be particularly good at asana, another might have greater understanding of pranayama, and another might be better at wisdom teachings or chanting.

She has stayed with a single lineage for several decades and as a result, can impart not just the how's of Vinyasa Krama, but the why's, the sequencing options and adaptations. Learning this lineage with her is a unique opportunity that I have not been able to find elsewhere at this level of detail.
