Namaskaram & Welcome!

Our program is the collective expression of a nucleus of longtime practitioners and is inspired by Prana Vinyasa Yoga®: an intrinsically creative, open system designed to awaken our experience of yoga as universal connection to the flow within us all. Founded by vinyasa pioneer and global yoga alchemist Shiva Rea, Prana Vinyasa is based upon the teachings of Krishnamacharya’s lineage, Tantra, Sacred Arts, Ayurveda, Bhakti and Somatics — synthesizing and integrating the roots and evolution of living yoga to help us more skilfully navigate the flow of our bodies in relationship to all things.
For aspiring and seasoned teachers alike, and also for earnest practitioners not called to the path of teaching, we aim to illuminate a holistic, essential approach to living in rhythm with nature. Our work is founded on an intention to support your lifelong journey in conscious embodiment — to help you awaken, heal, and serve within the dimensionality of the ancient wisdom tradition of yoga.
Our studies together unfold progressively, layering information and experience over intensive sessions to facilitate real integration over time. Our masterful guides bring insight gleaned from decades of practice and thousands of hours of experience mentoring others. They all hold the highest registration level available with Yoga Alliance and, more importantly, each is a living expression of heart-centered mindfulness — each is yoking the practice of an integrated heart.

'I belong here, I am at home here.'  Answer that call.
~ Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Sutra 26
