Riding the Vinyasa Wave: Fluid Power Instructor: Shiva Rea
In this evolutionary Prana Vinyasa practice, we'll embody wave motion to connect with the flow of prana, our breath, and natural flow. Unfolding to Shiva's alchemical global music mix, the wave of our class includes Jala (water) Namaskar and Prana Vinyasa Wave Sequencing as an intelligent way toward liberating backbends for all levels. Come experience specific navigation methods within Prana Vinyasa to integrate the fluid power of wave motion, pulsation, rhythm, and spiral movement to develop natural strength, energetic alignment, range of motion, and creative connection to the water element with our primarily fluid body. This natural liberating flow will transform your notions of stiffness forever, and is practical for men, women, and all levels of practitioners.

Rhythmic Vinyasa: The Power Of Collective Flow Instructor: Shiva Rea
In Prana Flow, vinyasa is more than a technique; it's a wave, a rhythmic cycle. Within yoga, understanding these cycles is key to creating flow within one's body and life. We'll do a practice dedicated to rhythmic syncopation within the body and in the collective to help you understand the healing power of rhythm. Come learn methods developed within Prana Vinyasa to embody rhythmic vinyasa as a technique within practice and as an optimal way of living flow.
