Evolutionary Practice System

Prana Vinyasa is an elemental practice system for living flow connecting you to the healing force of nature and the power to heal, balance, transform and renew. A Prana Vinyasa class offers a practical and effective diversity.

Prana Vinyasa transforms a class into sadhana or ritual meditation and then full relaxation.

Prana vinyasa practice connects you with the elements within your own body and the flow of nature. Each practice is based upon a “pathway of prana vinyasa” – a progression of namaskars (elemental salutations), sequences, and peak asanas connected to the power of each element.

Prana Vinyasa Wave Sequencing is a method developed by Shiva over 25 years of teaching as an integrative, progressive, full-spectrum way of creating a progressive flowof a yoga class utilizing the natural structure of vinyasa as wave cycles as well as Krishnamacharya’s teaching of vinyasa krama or stages of evolution. Prana Vinyasa Wave Sequencing works with the “sutra of the class by offering students movement patterns from the very first om through the namaskars and related vinyasas to the peak asanas to the inner arts of regeneration integrated at the end of class. The journey is a spectrum from the micro-vinyasa of spanda, breath, and the pulsation within an asana to the macro-vinyasa of a Prana Vinyasa sequence. The awareness of moving from macrocosm to microcosm and from microcosm to macrocosm is central in embodying flow and vinyasa.

In addition to unique asanas, through our trainings you will learn to embody and teach the uniquely Prana Vinyasa™ methodologies of: Energetic Alignment™, Hands-on Assists, Vinyasa Krama, Prana Vinyasa Three-Part Vinyasa™, and Wave-Sequencing™ for the Mandala of 108 Asanas™.
