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.

They sailed on Cunard’s R.M.S. Carmania from New York to Liverpool, England, where they were met by their own chauffeur, Krohe, in their […]
Growing into May
(May 01, '15)
The gardens are on the move, with and without our help. This week the Bosquet made the (subtle) transition from stunning to glorious; the Rock Garden is coming into its May peak; and in every other garden the tulips moved into position, poised to take the spotlight away from the daffodils. This past week we moved more […]
(Apr 24, '15)
All of our predictions (and hopes back in February and March) about the daffodils putting on a show for vacation week were spot-on. It has been a real spring spectacular! Not only did the daffodils come through for us but other beauties have joined the party too, including a few very early tulips. And just […]
