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.

Dear PYC Family,
While it has been an incredibly tough decision, we have decided that in the interest of the safety and health of our community and with a recommendation from Yoga Alliance, we will be temporarily closing the studio as of March 16th. Our reopening date is currently unknown, but we'll be reassessing the situation daily and will keep you updated.
In the meantime, remember to breathe, be kind to yourself and others, and join us for online classes!

Topic Chosen and Article Written by Hethyr P.
As I sit here contemplating the focus of the month for April, topics like self-care, kindness, and resiliency have all had their moments in my mind, but until the theme of hope found its way into my too-full brain, nothing had given me much inspiration. Without a doubt, we should be focusing on self-care and kindness day-to-day and moment-to-moment, and I think we’re all finding out just how resilient we are with our entire world being turned upside-down in these past couple of weeks, but hope seemed like something to which we could all stand to shift our attention in the coming days, weeks, and months.
The mood in my social media feeds over the past couple of weeks (and even in my own home) has been one of fear and uncertainty, even hostility and anger. We don’t know what to do with our pent-up grief, so we spew vitriol at those we love or those we don’t even know. We are all hurting and we’re unsure of what the future holds.
But even in the midst of the chaos and anxiety, I’ve seen so many glimmers of hope. On Facebook (my main connection to the outside world right now), there are groups popping up that have been created to support parents, kids, service industry workers, small businesses, and our community at large. Business owners are stepping up to support one another in new and amazing ways. Yoga teachers and studios are offering their services online to help people stay connected, grounded, and centered. Musicians are offering free, live concerts. People are offering to grocery shop or run essential errands for those who are at higher risk and isolated. And the list goes on!
Yes, things in the present moment may look bleak, but can we hold hope that good things will surely come out of this less-than-positive dilemma in which we find ourselves? I think they already are! When we are allowed to meet face-to-face again, might we approach our fellow humans with a bit more kindness and compassion, less judgment, and a deeper understanding? Might we look at the conveniences we so often take for granted with a newfound sense of gratitude and wonder? Might we again find a deep appreciation for the nature and beauty that surrounds us? We are being given an opportunity to approach life with a new and different perspective, with renewed hope for the future. How will we respond?
