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.

Focus of the Month

Śāntiḥ (Peace)



What do you think of when you hear the word peace? Do you think of the cessation of wars and terrorism? A moment of quiet reflection at the end of a long day? A walk in the woods? Harmony in your family? It can certainly be all of those things and more.

When we speak of peace in a yogic context, often we are referring to inner peace. As the holidays approach, our lives and our environments tend to get a bit hectic, but a consistent yoga practice can help us remain in a peaceful state of mind. A daily visit to our yoga mats and/or meditation cushions can help us face this high energy season with compassion and grace.

"Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of these things and still be calm in your heart."

1. What's your favorite thing about living in Colorado?
I love the mountains. Any time I can look at them, photograph them, or play in them, I find my peace. I also really enjoy the weather. I've always been a bit of a weather geek, and Colorado has some of the weirdest weather around. Spring and winter in one day, or so much hail that we plow the streets in July. But my favorite is rain drops with blue skies above. 

2. What brought you to yoga and how long have you been practicing?
I took my first yoga class in Cleveland over 20 years ago. I do not remember what made me sign up, but I loved it from the beginning. From there it was VHS tapes of Rodney Yee and a home practice. I'd only recently ventured to a studio for the first time about 6 months before I decided to take teacher training in 2013.

3. Where does your family most enjoy skiing?
My kids would say anywhere it is steep and full of powder, and they are right. We tend to go to Breckenridge, because we can day trip it, but Big Sky Montana or Steamboat are at the top of my list.

4. What led to your decision to teach yoga?
I had been a stay at home Dad since the kids were born, but once they were off to school I needed something to keep me out of trouble. Around this time, I started to read deeper about the practice of yoga...mindfulness, peace, and kindness. I soon realized I had been living a yogic life all along, even though it my have been from a hippy lineage. The physical practice had been with me a long while as well, and had helped "cure" some health/muscle issues. When I put the two together, the mental and physical sides, I realized that I could and should share my experiences.
5. What is your favorite holiday and why?
I'm not a big holiday person. I'll say the annual Warren Miller ski film that we go to to kick off ski season!
