  • Faculty Bio
    Prajna Vieira, E-RYT 500

    Prajna Vieira is the lead singer of the Mukti Kirtan Ensemble, and is also known for her work with world music pioneer Jai Uttal and other artists.

    Prajna Vieira has been practicing yoga for over 2 decades and teaching since 2002. Because she remains a dedicated student, her teaching is first and foremost inspired by her personal practice, with its roots in the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. All of her teachers have influenced her work in some way, but she especially acknowledges Maty Ezraty, Judith Lasater, Chuck Miller, and Erika Abrahamian for profoundly influencing her life, her practice, and her work.
    As a teacher and as a teacher trainer, Prajna’s one aim is to assist students in moving forward in their practice. She believes that this begins with seeing students—seeing not only their unique bodies, but also their energy, their patterns, their hearts. She looks 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? She believes in long-term practice, in patience, in consistency, and taking the long view. Her 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 she teaches on any given day depends largely on who shows up. She loves this work with all her heart, and hopes she gets to do it for a very long time.
    Prajna is also a long time practitioner of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of the heart) and kirtan, a traditional chanting practice. She believes that just like posture and breath, sound, too, is an incredible vehicle of transformation. Over the years she has had the good fortune to share this practice internationally, performing regularly with world music pioneer Jai Uttal, as well as with her own ensemble, Mukti, as a duet with yoga music producer Ben Leinbach, and with countless other kirtan artists. Prajna sometimes incorporates this chanting practice into her classes, or she will 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. She strives to be true to the traditions of yoga, while embracing innovation and discovery.
