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!

Movement Meditation
Roots and Evolution of Vinyasa
with Shiva Rea

Calling all vinyasa practitioners and teachers wanting greater depth, rejuvenating energy and flow in your practice and life through the art of embodying vinyasa and meditation.

Come together through the power of movement meditation and the essence of all vinyasa practices – “namaskar” often referred to as “Sun Salutations”.

In this inspiring and creative immersion, we will become more grounded into the origins of vinyasa to then offer yoga as movement meditation for all backgrounds and levels. This immersion will give you a comprehensive understanding of vinyasa from the Tantras and Krisnamacharya’s lineage as a foundation for Prana Vinyasa methods of leading movement meditation.

We will begin at the root – universal movement meditation, and the art of prostrations or bowing to the earth (pranam) and Surya and Chandra Namaskar with mantra to realize and embody our connection to nature. We will then learn the art and essence of movement meditation within Prana Vinyasa as preparation to embody mandala movement.

Highlights

  • Prana Vinyasa principles to cultivate the Art & Science of Movement Meditation
  • Roots and Evolution of Vinyasa from the Vedas, Tantras, Krishnamacharya
  • Surya and Chandra Namaskar and Prostrations from the early tantra

Teaching Skills

  • Learn how to teach solar/ lunar elemental prana vinyasa creative and intelligent wave sequences towards intermediate hip openers, arm balances and backbends
  • Asana as body mudras – awakening the inner flow
  • Prana vinyasa three parts – teaching inner and outer energetic alignment in the flow of a class
  • The art of awakening hands-on assists in the flow for key asanas
  • Vinyasa karma and the art of guiding vinyasa all levels

Each day will include both root practice and evolutionary meditation, hands-on assist and the practice of teaching.

Circular Power
Prana Mandala Vinyasa 101
with Shiva Rea

 

Experience a transforming, balancing and empowering 3-day immersion into the power of the mandala pathways with prana vinaysa.

From the roots of vinyasa and evolving over 15 years of mandala sequences, you will experience an introduction to Prana Mandala Vinyasa and the power of circular flow.

We will explore the five elements as the primary energetic map in Prana Vinyasa for namaskars, advance waves sequencing, our embodiment of nature, seasonal vitality and the flow of our practice and life. Our body mandala is comprised of all of the elements of life – the food of the earth, the sacred water of our primarily fluid body, the inner fire, the breath of life and sacred space that can be balanced in daily practice.

Prana Mandala Vinyasa 101 brings all of the elements into one practice as a progression of foundation namaskars in a mandala. We will learn one solar and one lunar elemental practice offered in a circular flow based upon the healing principles of the mandala as process of embodying full-spectrum energy.

The benefits of this practice for all levels are increased balance, fluidity, creative pathways, joy of strength & flow, and 360 degree – mandala perspective. Lunar mandalas integrate the roots of namaskar in prostration forms as a ritual practice leading to seated meditation, pranayama, mudra and mantra.

These prana mandala vinyasas can be distilled into shorter practices for all-levels in a flexible, elemental- based system. You will leave inspired and balanced with tools for further study and rejuvenation in the mandala of your daily life. Includes workbook and online resources for further practice.

Highlights

  • Experience both traditional prostrations of the early Tantras and the evolution of Prana Mandala Namaskars as movement meditation
  • Learn Two (one Solar and one Lunar) Prana Mandala Vinyasas practices from foundation and soma (lunar) levels of practice made accessible to all levels.
  • Embody and Teach Foundation Dancing Warrior in a Mandala for all-levels
  • Embodying Bhumi (earth), Jala (water), Agni (fire), Vayu (air), Akash (space) in connecting vinyasas, rhythm and poetry of alignment.
  • Principles of Mandala within Yoga, Tantra and cross-culturally
  • Integration of Tantric-based Mandala meditation to encompass the five elements and directions.
  • Practice and learn the principles of the prana mandala vinyasa sequences
  • Learn prana mandala namaskars, circular core work, mandala wave sequencing.
