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.

Art to Benefit the Moore Family

1 _1_.jpg

Our wildly talented and extremely kindhearted and generous practitioner, Georgia, is offering her gorgeous mandala art in exchange for donations to the Moore Family (recipients of funds raised through our Sunday 8am Donation class through the end of March). Her beautiful work will be on display at the studio this month while it lasts, so support local art and pick up something lovely for your home or office as you help a family in need.

About the Moore Family...

From January through March, we'll be focusing our efforts on supporting a local family through our Sunday 8am donation class. Please join us in giving back to those in need within our community.

John Moore embodied the principles of Seva (selfless service). Through his active teaching in the classroom, on the ball field, and in the great outdoors, John showed District 11 students that he cared and that he would be there for them, always. He lost his battle with brain cancer in November and left behind his loving wife Michelle (who also is dedicated to service) and 2 young teen children. As a result of his lingering illness, they are in financial straits and could use some significant support and loving kindness. John was an exemplar for us all in the way that he was present, taking the time with each person to hear them out and to draw out the best in them. This family has been devastated by their loss and still they are finding ways to carry on and serve the community. 
 
John's original GoFundMe page asked for a modest amount to keep the lights on in their home, but his illness required 24-hour care (which Michelle gave). Michelle would like to keep their house so that the kids don't have another adjustment to make after just losing their dad. Please consider donating generously to this loving family as they try to put their lives back together without their father and husband.
 
If you aren't able to join us for class, but would like to help this family, please visit the family's GoFundMe page.

1) You and your husband are relatively new to our beautiful state. What is your favorite thing so far about Colorado?
The sunshine! It is amazing how sunny it is here. We love to hike and camp and even in winter, we have still been able to hike almost every weekend.
 
2) What inspires you to choose a new song to add to your yoga playlists?
I am inspired any time I hear a song with a good beat that makes me want to get moving! I love teaching (and taking!) classes that really make you move, and if it is a beat, that just makes me want to dance even better! I also hope that new and fun music will make everyone forget how often they have to do warrior III in my classes... ;)
 
3) What was the last book you read that you loved?
Such a hard question - I LOVE to read! But the last two books I read that I loved were The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and Less by Andrew Sean Greer.
 
4) You're a writer and an artist. How does that creative spirit influence your yoga teaching?
I've found that yoga and creativity really go hand in hand. I'm always inspired after I take a yoga class and I think any type of movement (and especially mindful movement) sparks that creative energy in all of us. And conversely, bringing that creative space into my yoga practice inspires me to look at things from different angles and try to find new ways to teach and practice familiar postures.
 
5) What song are you certain to sing along to when alone in your car?
SO EMBARRASSING, but if you ever pass me driving you can be sure that you'll see me singing my heart out VERY loudly and probably very off key. And I will sing to just about anything... But my absolute favorite is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. :)

BALANCE
Article written and topic chosen by Hethyr P.
 
A student asked me this past week why the same challenges seem to keep popping up in his life, which later got me thinking about the same thing in my own life. I've often read and heard that we will repeatedly be exposed to the same challenge until we learn the lesson that it's here to teach us. One of those recurring themes for me seems to be finding balance. Maybe you can relate?
 
My teacher Manorama says something along the lines of, "Find the balance or the balance will find you." Have you ever had the balance find you? It found me this week (again) and it's been an interesting experience being laid up on the couch with limited movement when I'm one who is used to go-go-going! This has been a necessary and important reminder to slow down and try to regain some sense of balance in my life.
 
Where in your life might you be hyper-focused and what areas may need some extra love and attention? Maybe a little more emphasis on self-care and a little less focus on production and multi-tasking is in your cards. Or maybe you choose to bring awareness to fostering your real-life relationships and spend a bit less time on social media.
 
We'll be exploring balance this month in a plethora of ways on our mats and meditation cushions and we hope to inspire you to find some balance off the mat, as well.

"Falling out of balance doesn't matter, really and truly. How we deal with that moment and how we find our way back to center, every day, again and again - that is the practice of yoga...it's about trusting that you will find your way."
