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.

Focus of the Month

(Corpse Pose)


We couldn't resist. Halloween month just screamed "CORPSE POSE!" as the focus of the month. ;)

But in all seriousness, śavāsana is an essential posture in a balanced yoga practice. It is the time in our practice where we relax our bodies and our minds by letting go of anything that no longer supports or serves us. It is not a nap - though for many new practitioners it may be difficult not to nod off at first - but a practice in conscious relaxation. It's a time to tune out the external world by tuning deeply into our bodies as we work on relaxing each muscle and absorbing all of the benefits of the amazing gift of Yoga.

1) Many of us know that you're a runner. What's your favorite race that you've run so far and why?
Rim Rock Marathon Relay is beautiful, through the Colorado National Monument. Duane and I ran it as a team. At the halfway point, he had a huge lead and when I took over, I held first place for about 4 miles. The aid stations didn't even know what to do with a girl being in the lead. I was eventually passed by two males. We look forward to running it, again, in November.

2) Besides being a yogini and a runner, you also wear many other hats... mom, teacher, coach, wife, etc., and you seem to manage to stay fairly balanced and even-keeled. Do you have any helpful advice for others looking to bring more balance to their own lives?
Choose the things that are most important and get them done, don't stress over the things that you need to put off for a bit, and don't be afraid of turning down an opportunity. I constantly remind myself that just because I am capable of doing something, doesn't mean I need to be filling that space.
3) Is there one area of your own yoga practice where you consistently struggle or find difficulty and, if so, how have you learned to work with it?
I struggle with consistency. I don't have much time for physical practice, so I find time throughout my day. My favorite time, at the moment, is while I'm bathing my kids. My high school students have also pointed out that I've begun practicing while I'm teaching. I also find time to practice meditation or mantra while doing chores or putting Rowan to bed.

4) What is one little-known interesting fact about you?
I was born with a heart condition and had a note for gym class that I couldn't run. I've been told that I should struggle walking up stairs at this elevation. I've run three marathons, including the Pikes Peak Marathon, so I think I'm alright.

5) Is there a certain style or method of concentration or focus that works best for you to bring you to a meditative state?
I really connect with the heart centered meditation from Swami Rudrananda. We often work with this in Wednesday night meditation.
