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.

New Charity for 8am Donation Class

Thanks to your generous donations from the past quarter through the Sunday 8am donation class, we were able to donate $500.00 to Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention! In 2018, we raised a total of $1,700.00, benefitting CASA, The Yeakey Family, Safe Place for Pets, and Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention. Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts!

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) What one word would you pick to sum up your 2018?
Monumental-I turned 50! 
 
2) What are you most looking forward to in the coming year?
Finally completing a home renovation and then teaching yoga regularly. Possibly starting a new class.
 
3) What does Yoga mean to you?
Yoga is my path in life. Spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Through my practice I reconnect with my breath, sharpen my focus, and become much more grounded. Yoga also means community to me.
 
4) What are a few things you're currently focusing on in your own Yoga practice?
 
I am currently working on my practice of yin yoga. I plan to pursue level II training this spring.
 
5) If you had a theme song that played whenever you walked into a room full of people, what would it be?
I'm a Gemini so I'll have to choose two theme songs. I'll have to say Queen's "Under Pressure" and B.T.O.'s classic "Let It Ride..." ;)

Saṅkalpa
 
(Positive statement that helps us align and stay connected to our highest purpose and our highest sense of Self)
 
 
Article written and topic chosen by
Samantha H. & Beth G.
 
Oh, it's that time of year again! That time when we are taught by society to reflect on our unworthiness and set goals to hit mostly impossible standards of existence! No wonder New Years resolutions are dropped a few weeks into January. When we consider setting goals from a place of unworthiness, is there any wonder why we are not fulfilled by these goals? Our truest nature is not lacking and so it goes against our spirit to be motivated by guilt, pressure, or lack.
 
Unlike a goal, which is a personal need to accomplish something, the concept of saṅkalpa turns inward to connect to the heart's highest intention. It is a positive declaration or affirmation such as, "I am healthy and complete," rather than the ego driven, "I want to be skinny," or "I'll be happy when...." The word "kalpa" means vow and "san" refers to a connection with the highest truth. So, "saṅkalpa" becomes a vow to support our highest truth that we commit to for our higher purpose from the inner knowledge that we are already enough. It's a constant reminder of our own divinity and a promise to strive to live from that space of love and compassion.
 
As we move into 2019, consider who it is you'd like to be in the world, and how you would show up from that space. When you have your answers, you will know your saṅkalpa. Have a beautiful New Year with your best intentions yet!

"[...] because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It's your mission on earth.
[...]
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." 
  
~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
