What is Prana Flow? "Prana 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 fifteen years."
excerpted from www.shivarea.com
As a student, Charlotte embodies the energetic fluidity of Prana Flow in her personal
practice with a deeper level of release, nourishment, joy and connection to self.
As a teacher she strives to honor each student process. Recognizing that individually we are all at
different stages in our practice and guides the classroom community to reach their peak personal
expression by offering foundational cues through vinyasa krama. Classes combine music, breath
awareness and vinyasa, offering the students
time to ground, energize, balance and restore.

Daffodil Days here at Blithewold are in full swing. The soft, sweet fragrance of the flowers wafts toward me whenever I walk near the Bosquet. It’s positively enticing! I could wax poetic about each daffodil variety we have here, but I thought it would be better to let them speak for themselves. So, in lieu […]
