“Our intention is to affirm this life, not to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply to wake up to the very life we’re living, which is so excellent once one gets one’s mind and one’s desires out of its way and lets it act of its own accord.” — John Cage

Horizon lines, rivers, spines, flames, kudzu vines, wind and tendrils of sun-kissed hair – the Sahaja Spirit honors the meandering pathways of creative process and life as reflected in our bodies and in nature. In our yoga + live music classes, each individual is encouraged to flow with the integrated rhythm of their breath and heart beat in order to liberate the spontaneous flow of consciousness moving within. Through Prana Vinyasa sequences inspired by Shiva Rea and accompanied by live musical rhythms that amplify the internal rhythms of the body, you will learn to trust that the universal currents guiding your journey will bring you to the shore on which you will find your Self.

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to stay open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.” — Martha Graham

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.
