About Rob Hess

Rob’s Teaching has evolved and has come a long way from where he began practicing in Cleveland Ohio to his day’s teaching in Washington DC to now living in Southern California, from where he travels to teach throughout the world. What drew him to the practice of yoga was the physical part but after year of study and devotion it’s the spiritual part of the practice that feed his soul. And through this amazing journey he found his home in the Prana Flow community with his teacher Shiva Rea.

While Rob’s style is ever evolving, Rob’s teaching is rooted in Prana Flow: a synthesis-oriented approach to living the art of yoga created by his primary teacher, Shiva Rea. Born from the traditions of classical yoga, Bhakti, Tantra and Ayurveda, Prana Flow integrates various forms of spiritual embodiment practice to reveal yoga as a flow of unity consciousness.

Rob has traveled all over assisting Shiva’s workshops and teacher trainings. And through her guidance he loves to share with others all that he has come to know and hold dear to his heart. Rob’s style of teaching is fun, challenging, and lighthearted as he tries not to take life to seriously. He encourages students to enjoy the journey rather than fighting to get to the destination.

Rob has been leading workshops and training all over the U.S. and loves how the power of yoga is universal that no matter where he goes you can feel an amazing sense of community and love.

Rob has found that through his own sadhana yoga can free the body and mind from the self limitations we impose on our selves and that through practice we are able to get in touch with the very essence of who we are. His goal as a teacher is to help students uncover their own personal truth and live a life that is empowered.

About Rancho Santana

Rancho Santana is a world-class resort and residential community located on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. It boasts 2,700 acres of rolling hills and two miles of rocky and dramatic shore, broken up by five distinct beaches nestled in their own hideaways. Tucked between the vast Pacific and immense Lake Nicaragua, Rancho Santana has the distinction of being one of the only isthmuses on the entire Pacific Ocean. An isthmus is defined as a strip of land that is bordered on both sides by water, yet connected on each end by land. This rare geographical phenomenon gives the Ranch nearly constant breezes.

The Inn, which is adjacent to the community’s clubhouse and flagship restaurant, contains 17 individually decorated rooms and suites, designed in a rugged but romantic style. Although the building is new, it has the feel of an old hacienda, with all the rooms opening around a central courtyard, and virtually everything on display made by local artisans or even in house, in Rancho Santana’s iron works and wood shop.

Rancho Santana is graced with five sandy crescents of beach, some reached only via a hike or horseback ride, which all but ensures their privacy. Multiple surf breaks directly out front and via boat are ideal for all levels of surfing.

The Rancho’s dinning options are endless. Farm to table settings allow for only the freshest ingredients in every dish.
