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.

Sun-sational Summer Specials!

JULY SPECIALS 2018-4.jpg


Thank You! 
 

We could not be more grateful for all of the awesome yogis who showed up to help with yesterday's Seva Workday! It may have been the incredible coffee from Loyal Coffee that resulted in our day's worth of work being almost finished by noon. ;)

Our beloved Brahma Room is now an amazing shade of turquoise (we'll finish the remaining touch-ups this week), the unfinished side of the fence in the yard got a fresh coat of stain, and the flowers and landscaping around the building are refreshed and lovely (we'll be working on the Dale St. side of the yard throughout the summer, as well). The lobby and Brahma windows got a fantastic deep cleaning, too.

Charity for Sunday 8am Donation Class

Thanks to you amazingly big-hearted yogis and yoginis who support the Sunday 8am donation class, we were able to donate $400.00 from the last quarter to the Yeakey family to help with their medical bills!
 
From July through September, we'll be donating all funds raised through this class to Safe Place for Pets. For over 20 years, Safe Place for Pets has been serving terminally ill people in El Paso and Teller counties by finding new, loving forever homes and families for their beloved pets.
 

Please help us support this compassionate cause!

Focus of the Month

Maitrī
(Loving-kindness)
मैत्री

Article written and topic chosen by Beth G.
 
Maitrī is developing loving-kindness toward oneself and others. In Buddhism, maitrī is the first of the Four Immeasurables, or Limitless Ones, which are Buddhist virtues and meditation practices. Maitrī sets the foundation for these practices which build upon one another. They are loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity.
 
Pema Chödrön, a Buddhist nun, says, "The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves. Yet it's never too late or too early to practice loving-kindness...It is said that we can't attain enlightenment, let alone feel contentment and joy, without seeing who we really are and what we do, without seeing our patterns and our habits. This is called maitrī - developing loving-kindness and an unconditional friendship with ourselves."
 
She goes on to say, "Being able to appreciate, being able to look closely, being able to open our minds - this is the core of maitrī...Practicing loving-kindness toward ourselves seems as good a way as any to start illuminating the darkness of difficult times."
 
Maitrī affirmation:
"May I be happy. May I be healthy. May I feel safe. May I live with ease."
