Come experience the essence of Prana Vinyasa Flow with Carson Efird at Iron Butterfly in 2016!

Prana Vinyasa Flow is an energetic, creative, full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga cultivated by Shiva Rea and the Global Vinyasa Collective of Teachers. Students of all levels 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. 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 twenty years.

Carson practices, teaches and lives Prana Vinyasa as an evolutionary approach to an ancient form. Through the practice she has learned that as we continue to move, breathe and evolve, yoga is the source that sustains our personal transformation and reveals our natural essence. In her classes, accompanied by her drummer husband, Joe Westerlund, she encourages each individual to flow with the integrated rhythm of their breath and pulse as an expression of their unique spanda shakti – spontaneous creative energy.

There will also be time for Yoga Teacher Training Q + A with Carson immediately following class!
