Vinyasa, or "flow yoga," is traditional yoga, energized with movement and the breath. At studios and workshops across the country, flow yoga classes are in demand—and growing more popular every day. Now with The Heart of Yoga, acclaimed instructor Shiva Rea offers two of her most popular flow yoga classes, bringing these exhilarating alternatives to yoga students everywhere.
Yoga Chant: A transformative, inner flow yoga practice that blends traditional kirtan chant, postures, movement, meditation, and breathwork to release the physical and emotional armoring of daily stress and nourish your heart center with prana (vital life energy). Featuring Jai Uttal.
Yoga Trance Dance: Ecstatic trance dance enters the flow of your yoga experience with this liberating workout for cultivating inner power, creativity, fluidity of the spine, and natural movement. Includes a full-length music CD for self-guided sessions, produced by Geoffrey Gordon and Ben Leinbach.
For yoga lovers who seek to deepen and expand their practice at home or on the road, here is an unprecedented 4-part series of flow yoga sessions, comparable to two of Shiva Rea's weekend yoga retreats. Complete with detailed photo-illustrated guides demonstrating postures and movements.
