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.

Focus of the Month

Love

pyc love.jpg
 
What comes up for you when you hear the word love?  Depending on the definition of love that comes to mind, it can bring up myriad other emotions - some that feel pleasant and others that don't.  Isn't it amazing how our Yoga practice can allow us to feel and honor all of the emotions that arise, but not get attached to any specific one?
 
Instead of focusing only on romantic love as tends to be the trend in February, and which can bring up unpleasant emotions for many, what if this month we consider all the many forms of love and how we might connect with it more in our own lives and bring more into the lives of those we touch? 
 
This might mean treating yourself to something extra special this month, or really focusing on self-care.  It might mean recommitting to your asana, pranayama, or meditation practice, or getting out in Nature.  Maybe it means doing something nice for someone - maybe someone you don't even know.  It could also mean volunteering some time to a cause close to your heart.
 
To slightly tweak an oft-seen quote on social media by an unknown author: LOVE. "It doesn't cost a damn thing. Sprinkle that sh*t everywhere."
 
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

Name: Hailey P.
Teaches: Mon. 6:30am Morning Yoga

(Questions by Samantha H.)
 
1) I live my life by aha moments or those moments where something clicks and I get life a little better. Yoga has been instrumental for this growth! What's your favorite yogi aha moment?
Aha moments happen daily in my personal practice, but to me, the aha moment with the most gravity was certainly when I decided to teach. Going through my college career I remember thinking, "I wish there was a college dedicated to yoga...I wish I could just do what I love everyday." I haven't yet attended yoga college...but yoga teacher training opened my eyes, my heart, and my mind to this being a true possibility. Now I teach yoga almost every single day. I'm so glad I stepped through that door, I can't wait to see where else it will lead me. 
 
2) Namaste has been translated in English quite often and most translations have a heartfelt purpose behind them, what does Namaste mean to you personally?
In the most simple words possible, Namaste is the pinnacle of Oneness. It encompasses honor, respect, celebration, awareness, gratitude, love, peace, joy, and the Light that we all harbor within. It is the mantra of the Light Warrior!
 
3) If you could recommend a yoga book for beginners, what would it be, by whom, and why?
Oh man, I would definitely recommend The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle. Even if you do not practice the asana of yoga, this book will change your life. It is the guide to illuminating the Light of your Presence, because even though your pain/fear may seem like a grotesque monster that you cannot bear to look at, "..I assure you that it is an insubstantial phantom that cannot prevail against the power of your presence." - Eckhart Tolle
 
4) If you could sit down and talk with anyone past, present or future, who would it be and what would you talk about?
This question is extremely difficult for me, but in the spirit of Being entirely Present in the Now, I would like to meet President Donald J. Trump. I would like to lead him through many of the pranayama practices I have learned, so that he may incorporate them into his daily life to enhance memory and cognition, to make the body and mind more efficient, to remove stress and dis-ease that clings to the body, etc. And I believe he needs it more than most of us.
 
5) What's one thing in your daily routine you can't go without?
One thing that I simply must have every day is my Kangen water. It hydrates me 6 times faster than tap water, it is the most powerful antioxidant that I know of, it tastes better, and it raises my level of vibration so that I feel more vibrant than ever before!
