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.

Namaste.

CS Indy Best Of 2014 - Silver!

By the dreadlocks of Shiva! Guess who took Silver in the CO Springs Independent Best Of Colorado Springs 2014 Yoga Studio category (page 25 of the digital issue)??? We certainly couldn't have done it without YOU!!!

I must say that for Jon and I, taking on this business has been scary, challenging, and exhausting. There have been nights when I've woken in a panic about whether we can actually keep Pranava Yoga Center running successfully. But because of our amazingly supportive community of teachers, students, family, and friends, we've had an incredible first two-and-a-half months! Yes, we pour our hearts and souls into it, but it's SO worth it!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your support and for continuing to make Pranava your yoga home. We are so blessed to have you all in our lives, and we'll continue to do our very best to serve the Colorado Springs yoga community with open arms and open hearts! 

With Love, Compassion, Gratitude, and Respect,
Hethyr and Jon Pletsch

Focus of the Month

Getting Grounded

581.png

The holidays can throw us off of our usual routines, which may cause us to feel unstable, ungrounded, and disconnected from our higher Selves. And while it's nice to focus on new beginnings, turning over a new leaf, and committing to big changes with the start of a new year, those changes won't stick without a solid foundation. In January, we'll focus on building a strong base for a steady practice, and we'll learn ways to get and stay grounded through all of life's challenges and opportunities.

1.  Is there a specific yoga sutra that especially speaks to you currently?
The yoga sutra that currently speaks to me is 1:33. "By cultivating attitudes of friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and equanimity toward the non-virtuous, the mind-stuff retains its undisturbed calmness." This is the peace that we are all yearning for.

2.  If you were a tool, what kind of tool would you be and why?
I  am already a tool. : ) A tool for happiness - because I am one of a multitude of people, who share the beautiful and powerful system of yoga. With the consistent practice of yoga, people can find peace in their heart and connection with their divine self. There is no greater joy than this connection.
 
3.  What is your favorite healthy recipe using 5 ingredients or less?
I love to make soup in my blender for a quick dinner - an often used recipe is potatoes, onion, broth, almond milk, and cheese, and some Spike seasoning. It is easy and a favorite for my husband and I.
 
4.  Chocolate or vanilla... or something else entirely?
CHOCOLATE! My motto for many years has been, "if the dessert is not chocolate, it is not worth the calories."

5.  Is there a certain part of a yoga class to which you look most forward?
My favorite part of a yoga class that I am teaching is the first sitting posture, where we are settling in and sitting cross-legged. At this time we start becoming aware of the breath and the self. I often lead the class through the steps of Breathe, Relax, Feel, Watch, and Allow. These steps prompt you to be a witness to your body, mind, thoughts, and emotions. As a witness you realize that things are as they are - you don't have to  change it or name it. You can just watch it and allow it. I think being able to call upon the witness mind is a wonderful tool for our everyday life.
