Welcome to Pranava!

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.

Focus of the Month

 (Control of the senses)
Topic chosen & article written
by LeAnne C.
Pratyahara is the 5th Limb of Yoga in Patanjali's system and it is usually defined as withdrawal of the senses. This part of the practice comes after the more external practices (yama, niyama, asana, pranayama) to guide our attention to a more internal focus for the later (Raja) limbs of yoga. Withdrawing from attachment to the external influences and conditions of our lives is a tall order, but you may have already experienced a similar sensation when reading a great book without realizing that someone was calling your name! In pratyahara we find the same concentrated attention to our internal world, preparing us for concentration on one point of focus for our various stages of meditation. In the modern world, a simple hour without your cell phone might be a great beginning. It's like a stimulation fast for the mind.

1) As it's said, March is "in like a lion and out like a lamb." This phrase also reminds me of your crazy puppy Henry! What is your a) favorite thing and b) most challenging thing about having a furry, four-legged kid?
I don't think I've heard that phrase before, but it sure does sound like Henry! The best thing about having him is that he's an excellent cuddle buddy, especially in the mornings. The most challenging thing is that he eats everything, including food off the counter, rocks from the yard, and even my clothes and books!
2) What is one of your favorite yoga-related books and why?
I love the Bhagavad Gita. I feel like nearly every line is quotable, and can be applied in so many ways. Personally, I like to think of it as a metaphor for listening to your own internal guide.
3) You taught dance before starting a yoga practice, right? Did you have a favorite style of dance to practice or teach?
Yes! Classical ballet was always my favorite, because I loved focusing on clean lines, alignment, and technique.
4) What is one aspect of your yoga practice (including, but not limited to asana) that is currently the most challenging for you?
Meditation is a challenge for me. I have an overactive mind, so just sitting still and trying to focus requires constant effort. It's worth it though, because I generally feel calmer afterwards.
5) What is a) one thing you loved about growing up in Honduras and b) one thing you love about living in Colorado now?
One thing I took for granted before I moved to the U.S. was the vibrancy of Honduran culture. People paint their houses crazy bright colors, food is anything but bland, and everywhere you go you hear music playing from stores, houses, cars, etc. I love living in Colorado Springs, because it's sort of a melting pot. You meet people from all over, so that's really great!
