Inner Nectar – Rejuvenation through Soma Prana Vinyasa and the Inner Arts of Yoga

This Transformational Immersion offers a meditative, rejuvenating, lunar approach through vinyasa.

Soma Prana Vinyasa is dedicated to the healing lunar arts of yoga through meditative vinyasa. This immersion is centered around a regenerative practice that is one-half meditative prana vinyasa namaskars and deep lunar mudrasanas (long holds) and one-half inner arts of meditation, mantra, mudra, self-massage and deep shavasana. Soma is connected to the inner water, ojas (essence, vitality and amrita as the sublime nectar of healing) – the energy that can green a desert, and restore love.

This new Prana Vinyasa class format is distilled from 24 years of evolution of vinyasa and is the first module (part one) to offer how to teach lunar vinyasa as a balancing, healing approach to transforming stress and tensions, cultivating ojas and circulating nectar.

In this intensive you will learn three prana soma vinyasa sequences for regeneration that incorporate these elements of a Soma Prana Vinyasa™ practice:

Lunar Prana Vinyasa Namaskars for cultivating movement meditation, fluidity, rejuvenation

lunar mudrasanas – long holds in forward bends, inversions, restorative and supine asanas

meditation – mantra, mudra, and contemplation

opening and closing chants for regeneration

sahaja prana flow – healing flow of spontaneous movement

pranayama – lunar breath flows and other prana kriyas

wisdom sutras from the tantras and universal wisdom to bring into class

prana nadi self-massage – with massage tools, sacred touch and optional essential oils or ayurvedic oils

life-practices for cultivating ojas through ayruveda

Continued study and support through three-month to one-year online program that integrates the transformation of lunar vinyasa into your daily life.



Each week of our teacher training immersion will include teaching labs for Embodying the Flow and Mandala of Asanas.

Evolutionary Vinyasa Teacher Training Program is for aspiring and seasoned teachers as the introduction to a wholistic, energetic approach to teaching vinyasa as more than a technique or style of yoga but a way of guiding the flow of our body, practice and life.

Based upon the teachings of Krishnamacharya’s lineage, Tantra, Sacred Arts, Ayurveda, Bhakti and Somatics, 200-500 Evolutionary Vinyasa Teacher Training models the synthesis approach to integrating the roots and evolution of living yoga that Shiva has been pioneering for over 20 years of teaching in the fertile soil of LA’s yoga community and annual retreats to India.

Teaching vinyasa is an art that requires a teacher to develop related tools using their voice, hands-on assists, observation and energetic attunement to provide guidance that facilitates the state of flow of a class. In this week-long immersion, you will learn the energetic alignment for core asanas within the Mandala of Asanas™ based upon an integrated understanding of 1) the movements of Prana; 2) embodied practical anatomy; 3) how to open and strengthen the core structures of embodiment.
