Evolutionary Prana Vinyasa® Journey

Connecting to our natural desire to be grounded, creative, fluid and open

With Shiva Rea, Coral Brown, Christine May, Daphne Koken and friends

Take a training for your own exploration, or build towards a teaching certificate with Samudra (USA)

Prana Vinyasa® was created by Shiva Rea as a transformative and energetic approach to vinyasa based yoga. This approach has influenced the way yoga is practiced the world over for the last fifteen years. It is a synthesis style of yoga that merges the great rivers of Tantra, Yoga, and Ayurveda for embodied, ecstatic living. The emphasis is on practical and experiential approaches that are transformative, inspiring and in rhythm with the realities of our lives; combining a modern life and our passion for yoga.

For people interested in becoming a Prana Vinyasa Yoga Teacher, that path is also possible! You will be learning from the source (Shiva) and with the most experienced teachers of this form of yoga. Yoga Moves and Samudra (USA/ Shiva Rea) have partnered to offer regular modules (approx. 3-4 per year) with a mixture of Samudras’ core and elective curricula, so yogis and aspiring Prana Vinyasa® teachers can be both inspired and grow professionally.

All training modules are open for students of yoga, current yoga teachers and people who are enrolled in the 200h or 300h teacher training with Samudra.

Journey into your passion of yoga.

People say

Coral embodies the Prana Flow teachings of Shiva Rea in her own unique way. She teaches and inspires in a down to earth and clear way on all levels of yoga. The chakra's (her passion!), alignment, anatomy (she's a physician too!), yoga philosophy, teaching flow... all of it! Coral has a way of making it clear for all students, because it's obviously her life's passion or even 'Dharma' and that makes her modules always full of laughter and lightness. After doing several trainings with Coral, I already look forward to the next one!

Student Coral Brown

"Prana Vinyasa is a liberating, evolutionary, rhythmic, vinyasa flow class that encompasses mudra, bandhas, pranayama, meditation, asana, kriya, and a whole lot of fun. It's set to music, and it is almost guaranteed to raise your vibration, open your heart and set your mind free. And I love it. After years of being inspired by all different yoga style, it was like a light went on inside. I'd finally come home"... grateful student
