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.

Focus of the Month

Asteya
(Non-Stealing)

(Topic chosen and article written by Deb H.)
 

The Heart of Asteya - Generosity

Asteya is one of the Yamas as laid out by the 8-limbed path of Patañjali. The Yamas are about how we interact with the world around us. They are the guidelines we practice as we share this world with each other. Asteya, or non-stealing, is one of those. At first glance, it's obvious what this means. We pay for products and services. Anytime we take anything from someone else without their expressed permission or consent, we steal.
 
Often we take from others without realizing that we do. We show up late for appointments. We make conversations about our own life dramas without considering the other person. Many of us believe in the idea of scarcity; "there is not enough". As we live from this place, we look for ways to cut corners and do not value others or ourselves as we could.
 
Where does this idea of scarcity stem from? Without delving too deep, many of us have assimilated this idea from our families and society. We have been taught to look out for ourselves and to let others do the same. We have been taught hierarchy through separation and we judge.
 
What if we worked towards shifting our perspective? What if we began to loosen our grip on the idea of yours and mine to ours? I am not saying we dole our material wealth out to anyone who wants it, but I am saying that we work on generosity of the heart and the mind; generosity of love and care. The goal would be sharing a genuine and authentic way of being with others. Constance L. Habash says, "Generosity is the heart of Asteya." What if we gave from this place of generosity and loosened the grip we have on our hearts and minds? Understanding that as we offer to others, we also receive. The core of non-stealing is to offer time, energy and love and to become generous and thoughtful beings.
