Pranava Yoga Center is built on a foundation of the ancient and traditional practices of Patanjali's eight-limbed path of yoga. At Pranava, there is a focus on cultivating deep awareness and connection in the body, mind, and spirit. While the instructors hold the traditions close and believe in living a yogic lifestyle, we can also be a little rebellious at times. We are fun and light-hearted, but also disciplined, professional, dedicated, passionate, compassionate, inspirational, and hardworking. We firmly believe that a higher state of well-being can be attained through a steady yoga practice. Pranava Yoga Center instructors are passionate about extending the teachings of yoga and are ourselves dedicated practitioners and students of yoga for life. We take our yoga practice off the mat and into our daily lives. We encourage students to see the world from another perspective. We have the ability to help students grow in their yoga practice, and we motivate students to find their own inspiration from within.
Pranava is honored to have the amazing Giselle Mari leading two workshops in one day! Don't miss the opportunity to join us on Saturday, March 28 for Hot, Hip & Holy and The Yin Side of the Force. Check out our workshops page for more details.

The Five Niyamas
For the month of February, we focused on the first of the eight limbs of yoga, the Yamas. The Yamas can be thought of as restraints or moral disciplines. This month we'll be taking a look further inward as we focus on the second limb, the Niyamas. The Niyamas are observances. Through practice of the Niyamas, we work to cleanse and purify our bodies and minds in order to evolve spiritually.
The five Niyamas:
Saucha - purity, cleanliness
Tapas - discipline, austerity, heat
Svadhyaya - self-study, scriptural study
Ishvara Pranidhana - surrender to your higher power
