Tending the Fire - Chakra Mantra Vinyasa and Movement Alchemy
at Exhale, Venice January 31st - February 2nd + 4th, 2014

Our bodies are sacred vessels and our energetic hearts are the fire altar for our highest realizations, communion and the most practical guide for living yoga.

Experience an in-town retreat to tend the inner fire for the New Year through the transformative full-spectrum practice of Chakra Vinyasa integrated with sublime teachings and meditations of the earliest Tantras and supported by an online practice community beyond the retreat.

Our journey will move through the Prana Flow Chakra Vinyasa sequences with Shiva and live music artists with the teachings and meditations of the earliest Tantra by scholar/teacher Christopher Tompkins including his discovery of the lost chakra scrolls of Kashmir. Through five hours of daily chakra vinyasa sequences to balance and liberate your system integrating meditation, mantra, mudra, fire-offering, yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and enlightening darshan (Tantric philosophy), we will emerge nourished and supported with tools to deepen your living of flow and tantra as part of your life-path.

Prana Flow Regeneration Retreat: Energetic Vinyasa, Ayurveda and Kalarippayatu February 13 - 22, 2014

Our inner fire is our vitality, truth, soul’s calling and devotion. Experience a retreat of a lifetime to India, as we offer our 10th annual Living Flow Ashram. With the option of either “Advanced Vinyasa Evolutionary Teacher Training” or “Ayurveda Regeneration”, we will immerse in a relaxed and yet invigorating rhythm in a healing ocean sanctuary overlooking the Malabar Coast of Kerala. Located at the southern tip of India, Kerala is one of the most culturally rich areas of India, and is blessed with lush green coconut palms, forests, paddy fields, rivers and beautiful beaches.

Our “Living Flow Ashram” is created with love by Shiva and Demetri with special guest teachers and the Ayurvedic spa. We will live in the rhythm of vinyasa, spending most of our hours in natural light and the fresh prana. We will embody the connection to the elements with outdoor yoga practice under the coconut palm trees in the sacred yoga space that Shiva helped establish in this sanctuary 10 years ago. Through morning and evening meditation, transformational prana flow yoga and your choice of going deeper in teacher training or ayurvedic treatments, we will integrate into our cellular body the process of living flow in rhythm with the pulse of life.

sacred activism

imageOne small light, one big idea

A solar lamp does more than shine a light. A solar lamp protects the environment and transforms lives.
598 million off-grid Africans have no access to electricity and many rely on toxic kerosene for lighting. These brutal lamps emit noxious black smoke and burn up to 20% of the household income - locking millions into poverty. By contrast solar lights cost as little as $10, pay for themselves after 12 weeks and last for five years. Having free, clean light and not wasting money on kerosene transforms peoples’ chances in life. We have taken on the challenge of getting these lights to the people that need them most and aim to get a clean light into every home in Africa by the end of the decade.
