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
