What Pranalife Yoga is:

Yoga Classes

Pranalife Yoga was designed by our Founder, Asia Nelson, and taught by Pranalife Yoga Certified Instructors. Our classes (see a sample class HERE) move your joints through a healthy range of motion while you gain a balance of strength and ease. And we’ve got your back, literally: Our movements are based on the research of back pain expert Dr. Stu McGill.

We also take yoga into the 21st century; our meditation and breath practices are simple and effective without being esoteric. We’re here to help you be better at being who you want to be in the world, from feeling stronger and freer in your body to calming your mind and shaking outworn habits.

You made me feel like I belong. My anxieties about doing Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training – my age, 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:


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 get into our Yoga Teacher Training program HERE.

When you come to a Pranalife Yoga class you’ll be challenged, though we build up to big movements from simple starting points so you can do what you’re ready for, every time. You’ll be doing weight-bearing on your hands and knees, and core strengthening that’s safe – and not always easy!

We’ve taught people with a range of abilities and LOVE moving with anyone who’s excited about yoga. 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 can try a sample class HERE to get a feel for our flow. 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.
