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

Compassion
(Karunā)

करुणा

Compassion is a deep awareness of the suffering of another being accompanied by a desire to relieve that suffering.

"We can reject everything else: religion, ideology, all received wisdom. But we cannot escape the necessity of love and compassion.... This, then, is my true religion, my simple faith. In this sense, there is no need for temple or church, for mosque or synagogue, no need for complicated philosophy, doctrine or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind, is the temple. The doctrine is compassion. Love for others and respect for their rights and dignity, no matter who or what they are: ultimately these are all we need. So long as we practice these in our daily lives, then no matter if we are learned or unlearned, whether we believe in Buddha or God, or follow some other religion or none at all, as long as we have compassion for others and conduct ourselves with restraint out of a sense of responsibility, there is no doubt we will be happy."
~ Dalai Lama XIV

Teacher Feature

Name:  Charles A.

Teaches:  Friday 5:30pm Master Class
(challenging, but accessible!) 

1.  What's the most embarrassing song you'll admit to liking?
Kenny Rogers' "Lucille." I heard the song so many times I could visualize a cowboy sitting in a honky-tonk, literally crying in his beer.

2.  Does your family have any unique or interesting holiday traditions?
We go for the Tofurky with all the trimmings of a traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
 
3.  Do you have a current favorite Sanskrit chant or mantra?
"Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha." I need Ganesha or anyone to just remove the obstacles. No need to fix everything, just get the distractions out of the way so I can work my way forward. That goes for on and off the mat.
 
4.  What yoga posture has changed for you the most over time and in what ways?
That would be Headstand/Salamba Sirsasana, the King of all the asanas. I like the focus involved with the pose and the variations available. For me, it is the gateway towards other inversions. Something I'm still working on.

5.  Do you have a favorite funny holiday memory from your childhood?
I fondly remember everyone gathered around for the holiday meal and people dropping in to visit. I loved people in the house and the special dishes that were served. Simpler times with everyone together.
