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

Equanimity
 surfing equanimity.jpg

"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."

- Jon Kabat-Zinn

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

From Merriam-Webster online: "'Equanimity' comes from the combination of 'aequus' and 'animus' ('soul' or 'mind') in the Latin phrase aequo animo, which means 'with even mind.'"

The ups and downs of life are inevitable, but wild swings in our state of mind don't have to be. The practices of Yoga allow us opportunities to closely examine our habits and patterns and begin to shift qualities that we may find no longer serve us. On our mats, when we experience challenge - physically or mentally - can we connect with our breath to stay calm in that moment?

Can we translate lessons that we learn on our mats about steadiness in the face of challenge to our lives off the mat? For instance, if I find myself in a traffic jam and start to become irritated, can I connect with deep, even inhales and exhales, feel the floor under me, take in the beautiful mountain scenery, and find gratitude? Can I remember when I find myself in a rough patch that everything moves in cycles, and nothing is permanent?

Just as yoga is a continuous practice, so too is developing equanimity. If you feel like you could improve in this area, be grateful that you have a lifetime to practice!

1) What's the most embarrassing song you'll admit to liking?
Oh Dear! Don't judge me because there is no fast lane from L.A. to Tokyo, but I love me some Iggy Azalea's Fancy! You already know! 
 
2) We who have taken your classes know you have some very interesting and unique postures and transitions. What inspires you?
Haha! I honestly roll around on the floor...a lot, and it has inspired some crazy transitions! I literally have a floor flow that is around 11 postures holding onto your feet! It all really started with holding postures and feeling where my body needed extra love. It's crazy how your body will lead you into transitions on its own accord if you just let go of trying to get somewhere and just breathe and move! My practice hasn't always been this way though, it's a pretty recent new thing for me!

3) What yoga posture has changed for you the most over time and in what ways?
All arm balances I would say! There was a time in my practice when I felt amazing in arms balances and could move them into different variations with ease, now I feel struggle and frustration when I enter into crow! Lol. Sometimes growth comes from regression and I've had to work on my attitude towards "advancement." Letting go of my attachment has really been an ongoing lesson for me.

4) If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be and why?
A lemon tree so I could brag to all of my tree friends about how I was the one that gave you the lemons to make your lemonade with! Haha! 
 
5) What's your favorite song for a yoga class playlist?
Any song that inspires emotion! I'm such an emotional person so for my own practice I love slower dub step type music with lots of instrumentals so I can move with my own emotions. For class I love any music on the radio that can transition into yoga! Calvin Harris I feel So Close to You Right Now makes my heart happy or how about a lil Flo Rida's I Get a Good Feeling? Yeah!
