Shiva Rea

Founder of Prana Vinyasa? and Samudra Global School for Living Yoga, Shiva Rea, M.A. is known for bringing the roots of yoga alive for modern practitioners in creative, dynamic, and life-transforming ways.

Rea has collaborated across many fields and is known for offering the synthesis form of Vinyasa Flow throughout the world. As a global teacher for the last 25 years, she has taught thousands of students, teachers, and movers and shakers how to integrate yoga as a way of life.

For Shiva Rea, movement is life. Her studies in the Krishnamacharya lineage, kalarippayatu, world dance, yogic arts, and somatic movement infuse her approach to living yoga and embodying the flow. She integrates the core of vinyasa, yoga, ayurveda, and tantra in creative courses, workshops, retreats, and trainings and is a pioneer in reviving the art of namaskar. Through diverse namaskars or salutations, Rea teaches alignment in the flow, energetic alignment, multi-dimensional sequencing, mandala circular wave-sequencing, and rasa prana vinyasa, while integrating the creative, spontaneous movement known as ?sahaja? in post-modern yoga.

Since 2000, Shiva has created and offered over 27 award-winning DVD-CD?s for home practice as well as served as an ambassador for prAna, Banyan Botanicals, and the catalyst for Yoga Energy Activism and the Global Mala Project which has raised awareness and funds for local and global climate change. She is a contributor/featured author in media from Origin, Mantra, Yoga Journal Magazine, and featured in the LA Times, Vanity Fair, and Self. Her latest book, Tending the Heart Fire ? Living in Flow with the Pulse of Life is about living vinyasa, our energetic heart, and our energy future.

    My yoga online had shiva Rea videos, I miss them.

    I'm looking for a Shiva Rea video focusing on the core. It was great. Can we see that again?

    gwencreek, posted on November 20, 2014

    MYO used to have a video by Shiva Rea focused at surfers. Good for snowboarders, too:) I'd like to see that on here again along with more current stuff, like the others said.

    I believe those videos are all quite old - I'd love to see some more current stuff.
    Thank you

    I wholeheartedly agree. My yoga online used to have way more of Shiva but it seems to have disappeared. I have lots of respect for moms but not all of us are so her other programs would be fantastic to have access to!

    I adore Shiva's work, please include more of her wonderful flows. Namaste <3
