Charlotte Love Yogi
Charlotte completed her 500hr Shiva Rea Prana Flow® Teacher Training in March
2014 and is RYT 200hr certified with Yoga Alliance.
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.

What to do with asparagus foliage
(Sep 12, '14)
I haven’t spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden this summer — Dan has been right on top of the planting, the weeds, and the harvests — but this week I found myself in there a couple of times. Gail, Betsy, the volunteers, and I had the pleasure of helping with a huge […]

Our to-do list in September is blissfully short. The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter. It has been so dry lately that the weeds have slowed down slightly, so we’re […]
