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.

Latest Studio News

 COVID-19 Update, 3/15

Dear PYC Family,

While it has been an incredibly tough decision, we have decided that in the interest of the safety and health of our community and with a recommendation from Yoga Alliance, we will be temporarily closing the studio as of March 16th. Our reopening date is currently unknown, but we'll be reassessing the situation daily and will keep you updated.

In the meantime, remember to breathe, be kind to yourself and others, and for goodness' sake, please wash your hands! ;)

Namaste,
Hethyr and Jon

Online Class Signup

Some of our classes are starting to fill up on a pretty regular basis, so we encourage you to sign up online ahead of time when possible. We always try our best to accommodate walk-ins, but we can only guarantee a spot if you reserve. Spaces are first come, first serve, and are based upon the amount of room needed for each student in each specific class. For example, we can fit more practitioners into a Vinyasa class than a Restorative class. You can reserve your spot through our online schedule, MINDBODY Online, or the MINDBODY App.

Focus of the Month

Transformation
Topic Chosen and Article Written by Hethyr P.

As we begin the transition into spring a little later this month, I'm looking forward to the change and growth that will be taking place everywhere! As the vibrant colors of spring overtake the muted greys, tans, and browns of winter, we witness a most magnificent annual transformation. Life begins to re-emerge from what was seemingly dead.
 
Reflecting on transformation, I am reminded of the fascinating process of metamorphosis. An egg hatches into a caterpillar that devours everything in sight, growing too large for its skin and molting several times. Eventually, when the caterpillar has reached its maximum size, it sheds its outer layer one more time and reveals the already formed pupa or chrysalis, a life stage that will last for the next several weeks or more. During the chrysalis stage, things may seem quiet from the outside, but big changes are happening inside. The pupa produces enzymes that turn the creature into goo inside of its hard shell. Specialized cells then become active and begin to form new body parts. When the building process is complete, the chrysalis splits open and a fully formed butterfly is set free.
 
Similar to metamorphosis, the journey of Self-remembrance is no simple road. As we develop into little humans from our infant state, we devour information and knowledge to inform and nourish us on our path. Continuing to evolve, we shed old ways of being and doing that no longer serve us. There are times in life that may feel stagnant, fruitless, or as if we're stuck in the goo but, as we learned from our study of Yoga Sutra I.14 in February, if we stick with our practices regularly, over a long period of time, and with devotion, we know there are still big changes happening inside. We assimilate the information we are constantly taking in, and in time, there is a deeper understanding of who and what we truly are beyond just this body and mind. We remember our Divinity and we are set free!
 
How will you choose to grow yourSelf during this month of transformation?
