Rasa Prana Vinyasa - The Art of Rejuvenating Your Practice, Teaching, and Life

Experience a juicy summer intensive focused on Rasa Prana Vinyasa®, the art developed by vinyasa pioneer Shiva Rea. Rasa is a word with many meanings, from “taste,” to “essence,” to “alchemy.” This full-spectrum immersion and optional teacher training integrates the wisdom of rasa in Ayurveda, tantra, and yoga.

Infused with the Hanumen’s live music, this program offers three consummate rasas: Vira (strength and potency), Sringara (divine love and sensuality), and Shanti (living peace). In addition to the background, theory, and practice of Rasa Vinyasa, you learn

  • Five Rasa Prana Vinyasa namaskars with hands-on assists
  • Meditation and mudra
  • Cultivation of bhava (awareness)
  • Prana Flow abhyanga massage and radical relaxation.

A Wednesday-night kirtan with the Hanumen explores the roots of Rasa Vinyasa as movement meditation.

Featuring Krishna Das, Deva Premal, Jai Uttal, the Hanumen and many more!

Join us for our 12th annual Ecstatic Chant retreat, one of the most popular events at Omega. A remarkable opportunity to experience some of the Western world’s leading devotional singers, this inspiring weekend nourishes the soul with a rich tradition of musical prayer and meditation.

Known in Sanskrit as kirtan, devotional chanting awakens a longing in the heart for the experience of inner silence, boundless love, and intimate union with the divine. Emerging from Hindu traditions in India, kirtan is practiced by millions of people. The call-and-response, rhythmic quality of these unifying chants kindles an exhilarating, joyful mood and is accepted as one of the surest paths to enlightenment. In recent years, pioneering musicians and seekers have brought this magical tradition to the West.

Throughout the weekend—including an extraordinary all-night Saturday session—we explore a variety of chants and chanting styles, interspersed with rejuvenating sessions of meditation, yoga, and story sharing.

Program ends Monday at 12:30 p.m. Performers are subject to change. Ram Dass will appear via live video stream.
