My desire and purpose as a teacher and trainer of yoga is to inspire you to follow your passion and to manifest your own reality through the power of pure and positive intentions, thoughts, words, and actions, and to be ready and willing to recognize, receive, and integrate those manifestations into your daily living. It works... especially when you find God within and let go into the magical adventure called your life!
Twee Merrigan, Prana Vinyasa™, RYT500®
Twee infuses her Prana Vinyasa™ flow classes with the daily teachings of her everyday life and her recent travels along The Journey is the Destination Tour.
In August 2016, Twee's family of 5 (her vegan chef husband, two young home-schooled girls, and their rescue dog named after Bob Marley) chose Breckenridge, Colorado, a world-class mountain resort town, as their new home after living and traveling for one year in a motorhome in search of their next conscious community in which to live, American people and culture, secret gem yoga teachers and studios, local epic vegan fare, and thoughtful co-ops and farm markets... all while experiencing the country's vast natural beauty as their own backyard.
Other inspirations for Twee’s teachings include her time spent with mentor, Shiva Rea (founder of Prana Vinyasa™); her global yoga tribe of friends; a (pre-family) three-year tour living on the road traveling to teach and train teachers in a different country every ten days at yoga studios, festivals, and conferences; her “past life” as a New York City corporate sales executive for the first decade of her adult life; her Hatha, Tantra, Ayurveda, Bhakti, and Yoga mudra studies; teacher trainings in ISHTA Yoga with Alan Finger, Anusara Yoga with Lois Nesbitt, Vajra Yoga with Jill Satterfield, and Prenatal Khalsa Way with Gurmukh; her family's conscious choices as vegans; the heart-blowing events of both daughters birthed at home; and the inherent beauty, intelligence, and truth of Nature and God/dess.
twee's past life?
Before teaching yoga, Twee worked in Corporate America as an internet recruiter during the dot com boom (and bust), and as a membership sales consultant for a NYC health & fitness club. Her first job out of college was in the fashion world "schlepping" fabrics down to ladies wear clothing manufacturers specializing in polyester apparel!
Prana Vinyasa™ Yoga
Prana Vinyasa™ is an energetic, creative, full spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga, cultivated by Shiva Rea and the Global Vinyasa Collective of Teachers. Students of all levels are empowered to experience prana- the universal source of breath, life-energy and conscious intelligence- as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living.
It is an evolutionary method of embodied transformation and radiant health, cultivating inner and outer strength and fluidity, skill and intuition, vital energy and relaxed being, activation and receptivity, through balanced and creative fluid sequences (vinyasas), a catalyst for transforming old patterns and paradigms of the body, self, and the world to discover the potency and creativity within; a way of liberating the natural flow of the spontaneous intelligence; a cultivation of the art of yoga including movement, music, sound, visual arts, and poetry to deepen the flow; a way to ride the waves of breath, change and life rhythms; living, loving, serving life in all forms.
"During the morning we spent with her and her puppy Marley at their Brooklyn home, she blessed us with this beautiful interview and a hypnotizing yoga practice. Every single word that comes out of her mouth is a true inspiration, especially when she talks about the new life (by now beautiful Hana Sky) she is hosting inside her "goddess temple.” Listen to her and you will understand what being a yogi is." -Sonia Ribas, Founder, Yogin'it.com
