“I embrace yoga as a universal path as well as traditional teachings and practices to cultivate and realize our full potential. Vinyasa is a natural sequence unfolding with creative intelligence – a conscious evolution connecting each moment with unifying breath. We explore embodying and living yoga in full spectrum – sun to moon, wild to sublime, fullness to simplicity, action and being. There is yoga for everyone.” – Shiva Rea
