tantra

tantra

prana vinyasa integrates the tantric view of the universe, body and breath as the flow of consciousess and the translates the practices of namakaram, pranam, asana, havana, mantra, mudras, yantras of inner states and puja into accessible ways to trace the deeper practices of transformation that are a gift to humanity. 

Shiva’s voice

My first initiation into tantra was by the great mother herself. I did not understand this until I met Amma and went on pilgrimage to the living spaces of Anandamayi Ma and the 64 yogini did I understand what had happened to me as an direct initiation

My father giving me my name Siva was a seed that began an intense life-long journey into tantra specifically shaiva tantra bhakti within the krama lineage from which vinyasa flourished in the early tantras. I am grateful for my teachers of tantra sacdhvi vijaya, who gave me my first initiation into tantra, shankar narayana of mysore, ammachi, daniel odier, lalita devi, andrew harvey, lama tsultrim, sri devi bringi, swami shakardev, kamakhya yogini & pujari, pujari shiva kumar, maya tiwari, pandit tigunait, paul muller-ortega, sally kempton, lama willa, demetri velisarius and dear collaborator christopher tompkins. My teachers of bhakti are everywhere and in all forms
