Shiva Rea embraces "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. Let us know how we can serve your path."

"This documentary is a gripping narrative about the story of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers from all four corners who, moved by their concern for our planet, decided to form an alliance. As the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, they have been traveling the world to spread their message of peace and healing and a call for change now, before it’s too late."

The Yoga Lodge on Whidbey 

This lovely center in the forest on Whidbey Island hosts my seasonal womens' retreats. I have found it to be a place of healing and harmony for myself and the students that join me.
