Prana Vinyasa® Yoga
PRANA VINYASA® is a full spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga cultivated by Shiva Rea. Students are empowered to experience prana, the universal source of breath, life-energy and conscious intelligence, as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living.
Teaching vinyasa is an art that requires a teacher to develop related tools using their voice, hands-on assists, observation and energetic awareness to provide guidance that facilitates the state of flow of a class. Learn the art of teaching Prana Vinyasa® in this empowering and evolutionary vinyasa training cultivated by Shiva Rea.
Experience innovative approaches to vinyasa yoga and the state of flow within the rhythm of class. Practitioners learn classical and innovative approaches to vinyasa yoga and the state of flow drawn from Krishnamacharya’s teachings, Tantra, Ayurveda, Bhakti, Somatics and Shiva’s teaching experience from the last 20 years.
