Join the journey:
BEcome a Consort of Vyana.
Vyana was founded in 2008 by Helena Zera, R.N., an avid yoga practitioner and instructor. The HastaPada was devised by Helena for dhanurasana (bow pose) after an enlightened sadhana with her primary teacher – the world renowned Shiva Rea.
Helena’s interest in human anatomy, nutrition, and physical fitness began at an early age. A lifelong athlete, she has been active in gymnastics, running, skiing, Tae Kwon Do, dancing, and her true love, Yoga. As a registered nurse, Helena witnessed first hand the suffering of patients living with chronic pain, surgical procedures, along with physical, and emotional ailments. During her years as an Intensive Care and Operating Room nurse, she became intimately familiar with the human body and the post digestive effect proper nutrition, exercise, and emotional health had on the physical body, mind, and human spirit.
After the age of forty, Helena began losing much of her youthful flexibility and decided to attempt Yoga. At the quantum age of forty-two, what began as a love – hate relationship with Yoga and it’s physical demands evolved into a lifestyle that would not only transform her physically, but spiritually as well. Her journey has created a bond to the yogic practice and life on a deep spiritual level that resonates to the core of her very being. This bond has taken her around the world to further study this sacred ancient practice that has transformed her in mind, body, and spirit.
On this wonderful journey, Helena radiates love, appreciation, peace, and of course Shakti.
