Sarasota's Choice for Yoga Classes and Instruction (941) 928-2137

3840 South Osprey Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34239

Prana studio focuses on alignment based classes in Iyengar and Anusara styles of Yoga. Various levels are offered to appeal to the raw beginner as well as the seasoned practitioner. 

It has been my goal to create a studio that reflects traditional teachings of yogic philosophy and Asanas. I see everyday how this dream is formulating into reality. I witness students bring awareness to their health needs by allowing the benefits of their practice to be a personal healing experience on the mat. I have been blessed with wonderful teachers that help facilitate classes and our teacher training's that support learning yoga in depth.  

I especially want to thank and acknowledge those who attend class knowing they have not allowed their ailments, age and fears to discourage their experience. In fact it is that "courage" that keeps me focused on bringing our Prana Yoga style to the community and expanding our services to include concepts that support our mission and create alternative paths to healing ourselves such as the urban zen program and the new "sound as therapy" approach using sound vibration.

    WHAT IS SOUND HEALING?
    Sound Healing, through various techniques and technologies, is the educated and conscious use of the energy of sound to reach identified goals and promote wellness in the human system – including the expansion of consciousness. Sound Healing is founded on the premise that all matter is vibrating at specific frequencies. Science has proven that sound, or vibration, has a strong impact upon substance. For example, the study of Cymatics has shown how sound creates geometric patterns in matter. Dr. Emoto has proven that sound changes the molecular structure of water. However, more importantly, sound changes consciousness. Many ancient civilizations and modern indigenous cultures have used sound to heal and access higher levels of consciousness for thousands of years. 

    There are a wide range of techniques that utilize sound as a tool for change. The most common and basic use of sound is for meditation and relaxation. Chanting, toning and overtone singing are some of the most powerful methods for resonating sound throughout the body. The use of nature sounds and natural instruments, such as crystal bowls and tuning forks, have specific healing frequencies and harmonics. Drumming and rhythm are now used by corporations to release stress and build team consciousness. Shamanic drumming takes people into altered states of consciousness. Sound is now being using by clinical psychologists to help children with certain learning disabilities.

    Second Sunday of Every Month

    5:30 pm potluck

    6:30 pm Kirtan

    $10 donation

    Bring a dish to share

    5:30pm Eat and share in community. Bring your friends. All are invited to celebrate!

    6:30pm Kirtan : Join TeJ and Hukam as they lead the sound current that opens our hearts and a guaranteed smile!

    Kirtan is an easy way for people to experience some freedom from the daily chatter of the mind. While it is true that we can sing these chants in the solitude of our own home, there is nothing like the magic of chanting live with our local musicians and community friends-from kids to seniors-all adding their energy to the chant.

    Although the kirtan involves music, the underlying art of kirtan chanting is not actually about musical ability or training-It is about the heart. Everyone can participate!

  • A Therapuetic Approach to the knee and hip joints

    Saturday April 19th 2014

    12:00 - 2:30pm

    $30 in advance

    $40 at the door

    The knee and hip joints are being replaced in this country at an alarming rate. Problems with the feet are on the rise as well. Yoga practice with correct attention to "intelligent alignment" can help the longevity of these joints. In this workshop we will teach how to address hip and knee problems through a system approach of standing poses and the use of props. By creating a sense of stability and fluidity in the pelvis and legs we then begin to change habitual patterns and confusion about alignment and sense of direction. 

    Come join Ed Dailey RN as he guides you through an afternoon exploring ways to deal with these issues. By use of what Ed calls "intelligent alignment" students then formulate a recipe to help address the problems in your body. This class will be for all levels and will be mostly asana. Some pranayama will be taught.

Prana offers Young Living Essential Oils.

Essential oils naturally complement yoga by supporting physical and mental strength and focus through the science of aromatherapy. Essential oils are extremely versatile and have many practical applications in yoga, including techniques for complementing pranayama, meditation, relaxation, post-practice, and for cleansing and purifying. Essential oils are also used to activate and balance the energy centers—or Chakra System—of the body.

Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils can create an environment that supports deeper yoga practice.

Sweet Gift

"I've had the great pleasure of using essential oils in yoga classes, both as teacher and student. They make me feel like I'm receiving a sweet, intriguing gift. The aroma helps to center my mind and transports me into a sacred space, while the specific properties of the oils help to relax, inspire or energize me. I notice how the room becomes more unified, more uplifted, more present, after I share the oils.��?

—Ingrid A. Marcroft

Life Force

"Using Young Living essential oils in class is almost always a transformative experience in that they have a fantastic capacity to shift the space. There is a palpable change in the energy of the room, a softening or sometimes an expansion of everyone's life force—depending on the oil used. I'm partial to Valor® or Peace & Calming® at the end of the class or Valor, peppermint or frankincense at the beginning. The Thieves® spray is perfect for sanitizing and cleaning the air between classes."

—Stephan W. Kolbert
