Tending the Heart Fire Retreat with Shiva Rea

Oct 02, 2013 02:11AM

Shiva Rea is coming to our area to offer a weekend retreat, Living in Rhythm with the Pulse of Life: A Rasa Vinyasa Transformative Retreat, in which participants from across the country will come to experience depth, renewal and cultivation of inner passion, inspiration and the capacity for living love. The retreat, offered by Ananda Shala, a full spectrum mind-body center in Frederick, will be held October 18 to 20 at the Bishop Claggett Center in Adamstown, MD.

Shiva Rea is internationally known as a leading innovator in the evolution of Prana Flow yoga, transformational Vinyasa flow integrating the tantric bhakti roots of yoga, Krishnamacharya's teachings and a universal, quantum approach to the body. She brings the roots of yoga alive for modern practitioners in creative, dynamic and life-transforming ways and for offering the synthesis form of Prana Flow out in the world. Rea is the creator of Prana Flow Yoga and is a regular writer for Yoga Journal and Yoga Plus Joyful Living, as well as the author of award-winning CDs and DVDs.

The heart fire is a vision recognized by all of the world's spiritual traditions, as well as Western science. Within yoga practice, tending our heart fire is a practical and sacred metaphor for cultivating the power of our energetic heart in our yoga practice, daily life and cultivating rasa as the transforming nectar of love that brings joy and passion. For those interested in diving deeper into Prana flow—Ananda Shala is an affiliate Shiva Rea registered yoga school for both the foundational 200 hour certification or advanced 300/500 hour certification. Ananda Shala offers a discounted rate for those who wish to learn but prefer not to teach.
