Prajna Vieira, ERYT 500
I’ve been practicing yoga for over 2 decades and teaching since 2002. Because I remain a dedicated student, my teaching is first and foremost inspired by my personal practice, with its roots in the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with many gifted teachers, both well-known and not so well-known. All of my teachers have influenced my work in some way, but I especially acknowledge Maty Ezraty, Judith Lasater, Jennifer Prugh, and Erika Abrahamian for profoundly influencing my life, my practice, and my work.
As a teacher and as a teacher trainer, my one aim is to assist students in moving forward in their practice. I believe that this begins with seeing students—seeing not only their unique bodies, but also their energy, their patterns, their hearts. I look at how people respond and react to the experiences that arise in each moment—how do they engage with intensity, with softness, with tension or with stillness? I am looking at all these things, and looking to see where I can give assistance. I believe in long-term practice, in patience, in consistency, and taking the long view. Because that is my method, my classes aren’t intended to entertain, but rather to inform, to explore, and to practice. Along the way we may laugh, we may get creative, we may try crazy things, or we may go back to basics. What I teach on any given day depends largely on who shows up. I love this work with all my heart, and hope I get to do it for a very long time.
I am also a long time practitioner of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of the heart) and kirtan, a traditional chanting practice. It’s such a significant part of my life that I feel its worth mentioning. I believe that just like posture and breath, sound too is an incredible vehicle of transformation. Over the years I’ve had the good fortune to share this practice internationally, performing regularly with world music pioneer Jai Uttal, as well as with my own ensemble, Mukti, as a duet with yoga music producer Ben Leinbach, and with countless other kirtan artists. I sometimes incorporate this chanting practice into my classes, or I may sing during savasana. Yoga is a multidimensional practice with numerous techniques and traditions to help us heal, grow and examine our relationship with what is. I strive to be true to the traditions of yoga, while embracing innovation and discovery.
