Rhythmic, feminine and strong- Prana Flow
I discovered Prana Flow late in my yogic life. I had mainly practiced in Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga, very structured and somewhat rigid traditions where innovation has little place. Practicing in a free, feminine and yet strong system of yoga was at first difficult but it became a transformative experience later.
Prana Flow was developed by Shiva Rea, a Californian yogini and restless spiritual seeker, an anthropologist trained in traditional Indian dance . She is a woman and mother dedicated to the development of human potential teaching worldwide. Shiva is definitely one of the most influential yoginis of our time.
Prana flow is a rhythmic and flowing practice that connects the different aspects of yoga: mudra, meditation, mantra, breath, bandha and kriya in a creative and flowing form. It aims at awakening one´s own body intelligence and transforming our energy bodies through movement and breath.
The classes are seen as rituals where music plays an important role. Even though they are imbedded in a philosophical context that is deep and complex, the transformative power of the experience is easy to grasp. It has without a doubt changed my (yoga) world.
I had the luck to talk to Dieter Winter, an inspiring teacher and exceptional human being. Listen to his explanation about this system of yoga and join his workshop in Golling in November. Click here for more information
