Samudra Online: Ten Days of Peace
December 12th - 21st - still time to register!
Please join us. W are rising at sunrise for 10 days till the sunrise of the Winter Solstice. We begin a "tending the heart fire practice" of shanti sadhana - the cultivation of being peace.
This is the most beautiful sadhana for transforming unnecessary stress and vata, and to
move from the light of the heart with the rhythm of going more inward as the fertile darkness meets the reemergence of the light.

“A path into the heart that burns with wisdom and melts with love. Tending the Heart Fire is a book to cherish, to
keep by your bedside or meditation mat, and to inspire your contemplation and practice for years to come. ”
—Sally Kempton, author of Meditation for the Love of It and Awakening Shakti
“According to ancient Vedic scripture, the heart is the central place of consciousness. Shiva Rea’s beautifully illustrated book integrates the ancient wisdom of yoga with modern paradigms and evokes a complete picture of yoga, fire, and awareness in the heart of the reader.”
—Dr. Vasant Lad, author of Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing
"Shiva Rea continues to ignite the yoga world and beyond with her powerful teachings of radical self-transformation. Deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of India, Shiva’s innovative approach to yoga has revolutionized the Western yoga world. Breathe in, dive deep, and let Shiva guide you into the bright fire that is shining in the center of it all.”
—MC Yogi, musician
I'm so grateful to Banyan Botanicals for supplying our teacher trainings and retreats with oils as we learn about Ayurveda and living in rhythm with the seasons. We came up with the title of " ambassador of oil" as you all know how much I believe in abhyanga as a self-healing practice. I love their commitment to Organic oils with incredible medicinal variety as well as organic yellow mung dahl! and making ayurvedic materials, herbs available for all.

Energetic Vinyasa in Santorini - new offering with Acacia
Finally the Santorini project with Acacia is here - filmed in our favorite place in the world for the European as well as worldwide connected company Acacia.
They requested the classical surya namaskar with bija mantras (never done before) and the chandra namaskar as the namaskars as the whole series follows the Prana Flow: Energetic Vinyasa principles of solar-lunar balancing through the yoga matrix.
For those of you who have enjoyed Acacia's DVD's, you will always find an evolutionary sequence along with powerfully simple prana flow meditations that anyone can benefit from. One sequence includes meditation with Skaros rock and another as a bonus Demetri and I in a pranadandaflow for the first time of a DVD.
We will be back for more Samudra nomadic filming but this is the professional work that can speak to a broad audience. For me the heart of yoga is always there so I loved filming this with Demetri. It was the year of the Greek crisis so we felt it important to support Greece and the amazing people of Oia we have fallen in love with.
Thank you to Christine Romano who was the executive producer in Europe who made it happen which is the only reason I am not with my favorite and only director at Acacia- James Wvinner.
The view of Santorini is really inspiring in the winter.
Sending you solar power if you are in the cold.
7 20-min. vinyasa flow practices to mix & match with Yoga Matrix.
With over 3 hours of yoga and meditations to explore, the possibilities are endless.
