FREE YOGA Class


Pranam offers you a free practice, catered to the yoga rookie, but also good for those who have a regular practice. Various styles will be offered throughout the year, and sometimes drop-ins from local musicians serenading you in real time. Bring your friends. We have mats on loan (first come first serve). Come one, come all, no matter what your body type or experience level. We love to serve you various ways to practice, and this is a great place to get a practice started, or keep it going for FREE! 

Yoga For Rookies


This class is designed for the beginner yogi, as well as the more advancing practitioner who wants to get back to the basics, or learn how to teach fundamentals. Your teacher will lead you through fundamentals of the practice of asana (poses), touch on pranayama (breath work) and give you little tastes of the practice of meditation. This class will ready you for more challenging classes by teaching you alignment and poses, easeful awareness of your breath, and contentment in sitting with stillness. The pace is slower and the structure of the class is more like a workshop, to allow for more specific teaching of poses and hands-on adjustments.

Open Flow


This class caters to all levels, with clear instruction for those who are new to the Vinyasa practice, and more advanced offerings for students who want a challenge. Nothing is required, and staying in the realm of your own level is encouraged. Because the vinyasa style is a relatively challenging presentation of movement and breath, this class will likely bring fire into your practice, and challenge you to embody that fire, and meld it into your life.
By Donation.

**The Vinyasa style is born from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition, developed by the great Pattabhi Jois, whose teacher was the inimitable Krishnamacharya (“the father of modern yoga”). A typical Vinyasa class warms the body through sun salutations; flowing movements, using conscious breath as a metronome. As your teacher leads you through his or her own mapped-out, sequenced design, you have the opportunity to explore your presence in a variety of poses, some with longer holds than others. Some Vinyasa classes are themed toward a peak pose or class of poses, while some touch on all or a selection of the various classes of poses: standing poses, forward bending, backbending, twisting, hip and side openers, and inversions. Pranayama (breath work), meditation and bandha work (work with the 3 locks of the body) are also found tucked into many a Vinyasa class. Each class is a new experience.

Vinyasa I  super slow flow


This class won’t rock you til you drop. It will cradle you in it’s arms and serenade you while you flow slowly toward savasana (final relaxation). It’s like practicing moving through molasses. This practice cultivates a slower, mindful, nourishing flow, and gears toward those people who are new-ish to Vinyasa, or feel zapped but need to motor. Some poses are held, while the teacher cues alignment and breath awareness for more ease and inward journeying.

Hatha


This gentler style is a great foundation and a solid support for more active practices. Focus on alignment in poses, breath awareness, meditation, relaxation. Your guide will lead you through simple sequences, helping you to find ease in poses with the aid of your breath and a focused mind. This is a great class to take if you are a beginner yogi, and also good for more advancing practitioners who value more time to explore, refine and balance their practice. 

Yin


In this sweet, mellow style, we address the fascia (connective tissue) of the body, and the nature of mind. Yin Yoga taps the knowledge of the subtle energy body, the channels of energy flow and the deeper holding patterns of our tissues. This practice will challenge you in an all new way. No standing poses, all floor work, loooooong holds, and a deep, deep journey into the depth of your true, still, breathing self.

Restorative


Surrender to deep relaxation and replenishment. This class is designed to melt tension, calm the mind, and create space for letting go. Restorative yoga is all about finding comfort in passive postures as props gently hold you. Calming breath work, meditation, and an extended Savasana (final relaxation) are woven in for the ultimate nervous system RX. This body-mind-spirit healing experience is open to everyone!

Restorative into Yoga Nidra


A nervous system RX with only good side effects. In this class we combine two dreamy, relaxing practices into an integrated 90min experience. Beginning with a series of restorative poses, wherein you are held by the props that support your deepest melt...followed by a led relaxation, designed to take your consciousness to rest in the sweet space between waking and sleeping. Therein lies your true, sweet self. Your bodymindspirit will thank you for this drop-in, unplug, conscious plunge into healing peace.

Sun Do Taoist Yoga


SunDo Taoist Yoga is a system developed and preserved by Mountain Taoist hermits for thousands of years in Korea. Its foundation is the combination of Tan Cheon (Dan Tien) breathing with postures to unite the practitioner with universal energy (Tao).  SunDo consists of 9 major stages.Each contains a unique series of postures and a progression of creating practices. The breath gathers energy (Qi) in the Tan Cheon while the posters direct energy to specific acupuncture points, creating openings and redistributing blocked and weakened energy. This ancient practice enlivens the bodymindspirit and readies it for life.

Meditation


This by-donation class will show you how quickly and easily sitting still and breathing can soothe your nervous system and change your life. Over time, you will be introduced to various styles of formal and informal sitting practices, while touching on themes like Dharana (concentration), mindfulness, and being with what is. No matter how you choose to sit, the gift of stillness will bring you back home.
