Experience a summer pranafication for those that like to move, flow, unwind and get the essence of Prana Vinyasa and Flow Arts (Prana Danda Yoga & Global Yoga Rhythms) in a one week immersion. We begin with yoga as movement meditation with the elements and then move to our Living Flow Shala by the Sea (amazing retreat houses with organic food and healing spaces) as we dive deep in the living transmission of embodying nature through Elemental Prana Vinyasa with options to go deeper in our flow arts electives: Prana Danda Yoga or Yoga Trance Dance for additional teacher certification.
There is one pranafication retreat registration fee so that you can choose whether you are going to enjoy a practice retreat, do teacher training in all three: Chakra Vinyasa, Prana Danda Yoga or Yoga Trance Dance or choose to focus on one and have more space to relax and go slower in your integration.
For Teaching Certification, the online course equivalent for each module is required. If you are new to Prana Vinyasa and are seeking teacher training credit, empowering online practice courses are available online to begin a suggested 1-3 months in advance for the most grounding experience.

PranaDandaYoga: PranaDandaYoga is an empowering and fluid way to center the mind and awaken the energetic spine (inner danda) by engaging with a specially designed 5 foot staff (outer danda). In yogic tradition the danda is perceived as a reflection of the central energy channel, a symbol of present-moment rootedness and serves as the pivotal axis which grounds one’s practice in guardianship; the penetrating quality of alertness that neutralizes all distraction.
