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.



Latest Studio News

Ashtanga Mysore Group

Beginning next Tuesday, November 24th, Emily V. will be facilitating a free (or donation-based if that feels more appropriate to you) weekly Ashtanga Mysore Group Practice from 6-9am. This in no way affects our regular Tuesday, 6:30am Vinyasa Morning Yoga class with Alison N.... that will still run as scheduled.

This is a traditional Ashtanga Yoga guided self-practice class as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. In a Mysore room, the students move at their own pace through a pre-determined series of poses. Practitioners are expected to know the fundamental asana, arrive within the allotted times based on the length of their personal practice, and only practice the Ashtanga Yoga sequence at this time. Emily will be available to answer questions and hold space for those looking to expand their practice of Ashtanga Yoga.

Focus of the Month



This month at PYC, we'll focus on cultivating an attitude of gratitude! Though Thanksgiving is definitely right around the corner, we should practice feeling gratitude on a daily basis for all of our blessings and challenges. By focusing on cultivating gratitude for what we have, we begin to move past our desires, and we can increase our well-being and happiness in the process. According to Psychology Today online, "...gratefulness - and especially expression of it to others - is associated with increased energy, optimism, and empathy."
"Oh, I've got a whole new attitude
A lifetime subscription to gratitude
Friend, you've got to change your latitude
Live an attitude of gratitude!"

Deb (1).jpg

Thursday 5:30pm Vinyasa Open,
Thursday 7:10pm Free Meditation,
Saturday 10:00 Vinyasa Open

1. Aside from yoga, what are some of your favorite activities?
Tough question, since my life is yoga. Seriously, I love expanding my horizons through research, reading, contemplating, etc, etc. This has led me into amateur photography, which I get to share through social media, specifically on Instagram. I also enjoy outdoor activities (walking, hiking, snowshoeing) and love connecting with our grown children and their kids (aka, our grandchildren).

2. How has the practice and/or teaching of yoga changed your perspective?
Yoga has given me a framework for my life practice and the freedom to make it my own. Teaching yoga has not only allowed me to share something deeply personal, but it has stretched me in profound ways I'm only becoming aware of recently, therefore changing my self-perspective. 

3. What is the last book you read?
The Five Levels of Attachment by don Miguel Ruiz, Jr.

4. Important Fall question: Apple Pie or Pumpkin Pie?
Another tough question!  What about Sweet Potato Pie?!?
5. Is there a certain yogic teaching or subject to which you've been drawn lately?
Lately, I've been considering the practice of absolute mindfulness and performing each of my actions with the intention of awareness and love. This will be a lifelong practice obviously, because I often find myself distracted or I "forget". Thank goodness, yoga is a practice!
