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.
By the dreadlocks of Shiva! Guess who took Silver in the CO Springs Independent Best Of Colorado Springs 2014 Yoga Studio category (page 25 of the digital issue)??? We certainly couldn't have done it without YOU!!!
I must say that for Jon and I, taking on this business has been scary, challenging, and exhausting. There have been nights when I've woken in a panic about whether we can actually keep Pranava Yoga Center running successfully. But because of our amazingly supportive community of teachers, students, family, and friends, we've had an incredible first two-and-a-half months! Yes, we pour our hearts and souls into it, but it's SO worth it!
Thanks to each and every one of you for your support and for continuing to make Pranava your yoga home. We are so blessed to have you all in our lives, and we'll continue to do our very best to serve the Colorado Springs yoga community with open arms and open hearts!
With Love, Compassion, Gratitude, and Respect,
Hethyr and Jon Pletsch
Hey, PYC yogis! Some fun for your Halloween yoga on Friday, October 31st...

Katie is going with a Halloween theme. Though you certainly don't have to dress up, costumes are welcome if you're in the "spirit!" She says she'll be making vegan treats and cider... and maybe some tricks!
Charles encourages you to dress up as a yoga pose, deity, or creature. Heck, come dressed as a yoga teacher if you wish (BKS Iyengar eyebrows??)! Treats for all, tricks for some!
