what's new

Dear Friends,

We are excited to share many new programs coming up this summer, from Prana Danda Yoga-Flow Arts and Yoga Trance Dance Teacher Training,  UCLA 200 hr residential month long immersion with Carson Efird, and adventures in Munich, Santorini, London, Kripalu as well as several festivals from Wanderlust to the Wake Up Fest with Sounds True.  Santorini retreat sold out so quickly that we added a second week - see details below. 

I am very happy to be back at Exhale  for public classes during our 10-day Embodying the Flow immersion leading up to Maha Shivratri Yoga Trance Dance for the new moon this weekend.  

shiva reaSee you in the flow...

Love all ways,


All praises to the creative power

Prana Danda Yoga - Flow Arts Teacher Training


Prana Flow Arts Summer Intensive at Exhale, Venice
July 9 - 12, 2013

Summer is a time for exploration and activation. This summer training focuses on Prana Flow: Energetic Vinyasa Sequences that awaken the instinctual body through the flow arts of Prana Danda Yoga.

Prana Danda Yoga is an empowering and fluid way for to awaken your inner danda (staff, energetic spine) by engaging with the outer danda (a specially designed 5 foot staff) as an ally of meditation and movement that unifies body, energy and mind. Integrating an actual staff with a Prana Flow® vinyasa sequence hones your presence, refines coordination, creates deeper, energetic alignment and primal connection. 

Learn the philosophy and fundamentals of PDY as a embodied ritual practice and as a sacred support for asana, meditation, dance and flow.
