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.

Focus of the Month

Satya
(Truthfulness)

Topic chosen and article written by Kara S.
 
Truthfulness, or satya, is one of the five yamas, or ethical constructs of yoga.
 
Sat means "that which is, that which exists."
 
When we begin exploring satya, we become aware of how much we have actually muddled the concept of truth. We want to see things the way we desire them to be and often misrepresent ourselves in the process. The practice of satya, ultimately leads us to peace and a higher relationship with ourselves.

Thursday 6pm Vinyasa Beginner/Intermediate

1. Who's your favorite superhero and why?
I'm actually really ignorant about superheroes and don't have a favorite. Can I cheat and say Stevie Wonder? I think he probably has musical super powers. He has written about things that matter socially and personally and made it sound wonderful so that you could listen to it all the time.
 
2. Is there a particular yogic text or work to which you've been especially drawn lately?
I've been reading through The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies, by Vasant Lad, with some friends. Since I've started practicing asana, I've been realizing more and more that there's hardly ever one "best" way to do anything. I'm not sure what I'll ultimately take away from this book, but it provides an interesting way to think about caring for your specific body type rather than doing whatever is generally considered healthy.
 
3. What do you like most about working with preschoolers for your full-time job?
Young children are so genuinely themselves. And they can find so much joy in just engaging with others, watching the world, and moving their bodies. It's really refreshing. While my job is stressful like any other, those moments throughout the day make it much easier to stay sane. Preschoolers are also just learning to talk in a more sophisticated way, and as a speech-language pathologist I help them do that. The things they say are amazing.
 
4. What posture in an asana class makes you jump for joy internally (or externally)? :)
Supported bridge pose has been a steady favorite. I always need some decompression in my spine. It's such a relief.
 
5. What travel destination is at the top of your bucket list?
Probably Korea. My grandparents were Korean immigrants, so my grandmother used to talk about it all the time. And obviously some of that culture was part of my family life. I would definitely eat a lot.
