Join the Peninsula Hot Springs for a day retreat on Tuesday 28 March 2023 to explore the “water pathways” of Prana Vinyasa.
Shiva Rea is a global movement and yoga teacher, founder of prana flow, creative catalyst, energy activist and explorer. In this full day immersive experience, Shiva Rea will take guests through two yoga flow practices designed to connect with the water element and cultivate fluid movement.
Guests will also be grounded by a ‘Connecting to Place & Self’ session guided by Boon Wurrung Elder Uncle Shane Charles. The afternoon will involve enjoying a nourishing lunch and bathing in geothermal hot springs before finishing with a sunset yoga trance dance led by Shiva Rea. Retreat guests will emerge feeling renewed, restored, and refreshed for the year ahead.
