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

Saṁgha
(Community)
 
 8b7f1b3c-a2f4-4b8d-8429-50730f170975.png
 
Topic chosen and article written by Katie T.
 
Saṁgha (or saṅgha in Pali) is traditionally rooted in the Buddhist culture to describe a monastic community of ordained monks and nuns. Thich Nhat Hanh describes it as "Beloved Community," where people are "engaged in serving and bringing joy to one another, and inspire one another to contribute." Yogananda recognized it as the "importance of worldwide fellowship," instead of limiting it to a present time and place filled with those around you.
 
Yoga has traditionally been a very solitary path, where a student would work individually with a guru. However, the idea of saṁgha does not have to mean community with people in the conventional sense of knowing them well and spending time together doing something or talking about life. It can also be the simple act of being in the same place at the same time, simply sharing space and energy. There is still something in that act that encourages the individual to be inclusive and feel supported.
 
What is your saṁgha? How do you feel connected? Where do you feel this space is for you? Why do you think you created your saṁgha (or what brought you to this place, these people, at this time in your life)?

"In Buddhism, there are three gems: Buddha, the awakened one; Dharma, the way of understanding and loving; and Sangha, the community that
lives in harmony and awareness. The three are interrelated, and at
times it is hard to distinguish one from another. In everyone there
is the capacity to wake up, to understand, and to love. So in
ourselves we find Buddha, and we also find Dharma and Sangha." 

 ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
