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.

Here's the scoop:
1) You'll either need an existing Pranava Yoga Center MINDBODY account or you'll need to create one for free here.

3) Classes will be held through Zoom. If you don't yet have Zoom downloaded, just follow the basic instructions as prompted when you join your first class.
4) Sign up for class through our website, MINDBODY Online, or the MINDBODY app at least 20 minutes prior to the start of class and please make sure you've provided a valid email address.

Focus of the Month

Kindness
Topic Chosen and Article Written by Jon P.

kindness.jpg
 

Kindness matters for so many reasons. It can lift us, heal us, empower us, sustain us. It lays the foundation for so much good, happiness, compassion, and unity in this world. Kindness leads to positive change, brings people together, and warms hearts. It is simple, yet powerful, and it can show itself in many ways.

There is perhaps nothing more important than bestowing kindness upon yourself. After all, we need to tend our own gardens before expecting to cultivate and grow the gardens of others. It's so much easier to treat others better when we practice self-care, when we're gentle and forgiving and loving toward our own selves. Happiness really is contagious, and if we truly feel it, then we truly give it, too.

Kindness can come in the simplest of acts, and those little moments can ripple through life for years to come. We all remember some random compliment that came our way, a helpful act when we needed a hand, an empathetic gesture when we wanted it most, or even just a smile from the right person at the right time. Something so easy, so uncomplicated... just a little moment... but a feeling, a warmth, a memory from a human act of compassion that lifts us up and reminds us that we're surrounded by a whole lotta love.

Kindness can take the form of extraordinary commitments to the health, happiness, and well-being of others. Some people devote their lives to providing compassionate service to people, to animals, to the Earth. Giving to give, not to receive. Calculated kindness with direct intention rather than just random acts, making the world a truly better place by lifting up those who need it most.

Kindness toward our families and our friends connects us even more deeply with the people in our lives who mean the most to us. It can bridge divides when there are differences and complications between us. It can be the common denominator that sustains and supports a healthy relationship. It can be a powerful bond between generations. It can help to keep the people we love the most close to us.

Kindness is contagious. Spread it to others and accept it openly and graciously when it comes your way. And remember... you're totally awesome.
