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.

Hey, PYC yogis!  Some fun for your Halloween yoga on Friday, October 31st...

3:30pm Vinyasa Open 

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!

5:30pm Master

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!

Focus of the Month


patience; acceptance; kindness;
open-mindedness; compassion

Yoga means union. The practice of yoga teaches us that we are all one and that we all come from and return to the same source. When we come to the realization that the same Divine spark is within each of us, we also realize that, although we may be on different paths, they are all leading to the same end. Tolerance of others and their differences becomes easier when we realize that the underlying, unchanging reality is we are all the same.
"Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others."
~ John F. Kennedy
