Prana Flow Vinyasa is movement alchemy, transforming all stress and contraction into the flow of bliss. With roots in the Krishnamacharya lineage, as well as living Ayurveda (medicinal sister science to yoga), Tantra (a path of expanding consciousness towards bliss), Bhakti (the path of love and devotion), Kalarippayatu (embodied martial art), and the universal forms of yoga practiced by every culture, Prana Vinyasa will bring more flow, fluidity, empowerment, and regeneration to your life. Master yogini Shiva Rea created this new evolution of yoga after diving deeply into traditional practice.
Six-week Solar/Lunar Study Series beginning August 21st and ends September 27th.
Solar classes (more externally activating) will be Tuesdays \ and Lunar classes (learning the inner arts) will be held Thursdays beginning at 5:30pm. You can attend both days or just one.
Solar classes will heat you up and train your body to be strong enough to allow the full energy of life express itself through your embodiment. Lunar classes will include more seated postures and emphasize opening to life by surrendering to the present moment. Prana Vinyasa is generally moderate to slow paced compared to other traditions, but is quite difficult nevertheless. Great care is given to proper alignment through energetic forces (vayus) as well as “moods” or the bhav in Sanskrit. After every class you will leave feeling much more relaxed, peaceful, and more integrated in your embodiment.
