Rays of the One: Sacred SUNday Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga w/ Carson Efird
Prana Vinyasa 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.

Bliss Consciousness Meditation teaches traditional yogic meditation tools + techniques to begin the journey inwards to the heart. Guided by the map of the Pancha Koshas, the five layers, we explore asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra and visualization to awaken bliss consciousness throughout our whole being.

Shamanic Reiki intuitively integrates healing practices from both Shamanic traditions + Reiki. Both lineages share a deep respect for nature spirit energy as the great healer, and empower us to cleanse and balance our elemental beings in service of the earth and all of her creations.
