Move well. Live well. Be well.

If you’ve said:

“I need to de-stress.”

“I’m tight / inflexible / wrecked from Crossfit/the gym/running/activity I love but is hard on my body.”

“I’m officially couch-shaped; I need to move my damn body.”

“I’ve got more to offer, I can do/be more, and I want to find a tribe and training that helps me get to the NEXT LEVEL.”

“I want to become a yoga teacher and I need a program that suits me.”

then welcome to Pranalife Yoga. We’re happy you found us!

You made me feel like I belong. My anxieties about doing Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training – my age (60), not being in a classroom for decades, technology challenged, having limiting beliefs, just to list a few – could’ve been discouraging. But you are so engaging in the classroom, and you listen with care and love. You have established an environment that feels safe, positive and productive, where trusting relationships exist.

What to know before you do yoga with us:

WE ARE NOT A YOGA STUDIO – But we do teach in them, including @ Community of Hearts Yoga (owned by Pranalife Certified Instructor Selam Debs). You can take weekly classes or sign up for private sessions HERE, or apply for our Yoga Teacher Training program HERE.

PRANALIFE YOGA CLASSES ARE GREAT FOR (ALMOST) EVERYONE – in every Pranalife Yoga class you’ll build up to bigger, challenging movements from basic starting shapes, so you can do what you’re ready for, every time. You will be doing weight-bearing on your hands and knees, and practicing awareness and balance. We occasionally practice a short meditation at the end of class but mostly, we’re there to move. Expect to see some postures you’d find in traditional yoga classes, and be ready to explore constant creative movement on – and occasionally off – your mat.

We’ve taught people with a wide range of abilities and LOVE moving with anyone who’s excited to try it. In classes, we can’t address each individual need (though we offer plenty of modifications) – that’s what our private sessions are for. Know your limits and what you really want from a yoga class, and choose Pranalife Yoga only if it fits you.

You’re welcome to chat with us if you have any questions.


Thank you for being such an amazing instructor, Asia. Your class was what I looked forward to every week. I knew I would come home every Friday feeling awesome!

Within a year of doing yoga, with Asia’s reassurance and guidance, I’ve been able to do poses I never dreamed I could. The sense of accomplishment is incredible and I owe this to Asia.

There is a feeling of effortless integrity to your practice which creates a certain energy that the entire class feels. Thank you for that.
