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


As I considered spooky topics for our October focus of the month, many ideas came to mind, but there wasn't one that felt quite right. So I started thinking about the common thread in all of those seemingly unconnected topics, and I had the AHA! moment.
Fear can have a way of creeping into nearly every aspect of our lives. At times, we may experience fear around relationships (with others and with ourselves), our health and well-being, our jobs, our communities, and the world at large. Fear can range from mild discomfort to crippling phobia. When severe, it can become a major limiting factor in the way we move through life. But the more we feed into fear, the more afraid we'll become. However, if we couldn't feel fear, we wouldn't survive for long, so it's definitely an important emotion - just one with which we need to learn to work.
One of the many amazing things about having a regular yoga practice is that you actually get to work with your fears by getting curious about them and exploring them on your mat. Afraid of falling on your face while attempting crow pose? Notice what working with a blanket or bolster in front of your face on the ground does for you!
This morning, Jon told me that he's actually terrified of falling from an inversion like headstand, but that he's learned to feel steady using the wall for support. Over time and with consistent practice, we're able to take those lessons we learn on our mats out into the world. Are you afraid of metaphorically falling on your face when speaking in front of a crowd? Are there support systems you can put into place to reduce the amount of fear you experience (similar to the bolster in crow pose)?  
By getting curious and working with fear within our own thresholds, we create space for growth, both on and off the mat.

Teacher Feature


Name: Linene K.
Teaches: Wednesday, 6:30am Morning Yoga;
Sunday, 12pm Basics (beginning 10/16) 

1) Is there an asana (posture) in which you experience fear, and if so, how do you work with the fear?

I am terrified of doing "Hero Pose"; I totally trashed my knee during a ski vacation in Pennsylvania.  The worst part... it was the last run of the day. After surgery and a large screw installed I am back on the slopes. When I go into hero's pose I can feel the strain on my knee and it reminds me of the fall. I work at getting over my fear by using props and modifications in hopes of sitting in hero for just a breath.

2) Does your family have any fun Fall activities or travels planned?

Before my son played hockey, pumpkin patches and hayrides were our family calling in the fall. Now I not only have one hockey player but two and it is double the ice time. Luckily it takes us to different parts of the state for hockey tournaments with lots of family friends.

3) Is there a specific yogic text to which you're currently drawn?

There is a quote by Bernie Clark author of The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga that I feel is one of the most basic descriptions of what I want my yoga to be.

"Yoga was never a competitive sport, it is an inward practice designed to build awareness, non-attachment, equanimity and contentment."

To me, this is what yoga is about - a personal journey that is never perfected, it is nothing more than improving one's life through a series of personal victories.
4) What's your favorite dessert?

I love cheesecake, unfortunately so do my four children, so it's typically a race to the finish. Luckily they can't race me to a glass of Cabernet.
5) Why do you feel drawn to share the practice of yoga with others?

For years I practiced yoga on my own. My only student was my husband. I watched him become quite the yogi. As I realized how well he progressed, I understood that I had a small part to do with it and that made me feel good. It challenged my own practices and made me a better yogi, which in turn made me a better instructor. Yoga is a give and take, practicing with others allows me to give to my students and take back inner challenges for myself.
