New Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultant and PranaDandaYoga Teacher Trainings for 2013-14

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Dear Friends,

It is with great fulfillment that we are pleased to announce the addition of two new programs for certification within the Samudra Global School for Living Yoga: Prana Flow - Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant and PranaDandaYoga Teacher Certification. Both programs will be offered as part of our 200-500 hour programs in Venice. All Part Two Core modules for 2013 will have unique energetic vinyasa and Ayurvedic lifestyle knowledge that can be taken individually for the 200-500 hour program or combined together in three 10-day programs over a year and a half  to become an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant in accordance with NAMA regulations.

I am proud of Maria Garre, Program Director who was originally introduced to Ayurveda in our teacher training program and went on to complete intensive advance training with both Kripalu and the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico and India and is currently writing a book with Dr. Lad on Ayuryoga. She understands the integration of Prana Flow with Ayurveda and will be the wonderful guide for the Ayurveda Program including online programs with guest teachers. In this program, it will be the full offering of the elemental, chakra and rasa namaskars that form the basis for energetic vinyasa for balancing the doshas and living in rhythm with nature. All Prana Flow students-teachers can look forward to great online programs beginning in May.

For three years in the making, we are also proud to offer the first PranaDandaYoga Flow Arts Teacher Training in Tulum and this summer. Demetri and I will be teaching PranaDandaYoga to 200 people in Oahu for Wanderlust and will be offering online programs and PranaDanda Kits in April. 

Please see the full program brochures and our website for full details.

Sending you love from Waipio Valley where we are entering retreat with nature deep in the valley.

Love All Ways,


Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. -Rumi

Dear Friends,

The love sadhana has begun. I give thanks for a transformative connection with the DC yoga community over this New Moon weekend. I feel the Western yoga world is maturing-evolving and tapping into the deeper capacity of yoga on the individual and collective level. 

I love Valentine's week for it is an ancient festival at least 2,000 years old in the heart of winter (ohh my New England friends) in which all that RED shakti of love becomes fully expressive like Mardi Gras which starts today.

We are grateful to Govindas and Radha for giving us a gathering space to "practice" for our spontaneous Make Love Yoga Flash Mob to join people around the world in over 200 countries to support One Billion Rising and a safe space for women with dear friends C.C. White and GlobeSonic DJ Fabian Alsultany as well as Hala Khouri, Samanthe Mehra, Cristi Cristensen and more.

It will be a positive way to come together from 4-5:30 and wear red, black or white . The joy continues this weekend at Exhale for our once a year workshop on the Inner Consort practice live.

So join us this Thursday, this weekend or in cyber space.
Love all ways,


The whole world could be choked with thorns - a lover’s heart will stay a rose garden.
 Even if every being grew sad, a lover’s soul will stay fresh, vibrant, light.
Are all the candles out?
Hand them to a lover - a lover shoots out a hundred thousand fires. – Rumi
