Meaning Behind the Name
Prana Das Yoga
Traditionally, the word "Das" in Sanskrit means "in service of" or "devoted to" that which precedes the word. "Prana" is the breath and life-giving energy behind all things. We are a community and philosophy that is committed and devoted to preserving, expanding and evolving our experience with that life-giving force through practice.
Philosophy of the Practice
More than Just the Physical
Yoga in its purest and traditional forms was used as a method of therapy for helping people to live a more meaningful and successful life. While we excel at teaching the "asana" or physical practice of yoga that many of us in the West come to consider the entirety of practice, we also delve deeply into the full spectrum of practices in the eight limbs of yoga (care of self and others, breathing practices, internally-focused disciplines like concentration and meditation, and more) so that you have a comprehensive experience of what is possible through yoga.
