If you’ve said:

“I should try yoga.”

“I’m tight/inflexible / looking to de-stress / wrecked from Crossfit/the gym/running/whatever other activity I’m doing that I love but is hard on my body, and I think yoga would help.”

“My doctor/chiro/naturopath/health specialist recommended I do yoga.”

“I have back pain / injury and want to move safely while I heal.” 

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

“I want a yoga class that’s kick-ass, fun, intense but accessible, something I can’t wait to do every week.”

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


What Pranalife Yoga is:

Yoga Classes and Private Sessions – Pranalife Yoga is a vinyasa (flow-style) yoga designed by Movement Teacher and Pranalife Yoga Founder Asia Nelson, and taught by Pranalife Yoga Certified Instructors. Our sequences (see a sample class HERE) move your joints through a healthy range of motion while every part of your body re-learns 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; meditation and breath practices are practical, 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 old habits that don’t serve you.

Yoga Teacher Training – Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training is THE place to go from being passionate about yoga to turning that passion into a kickass career. Learn all about it HERE.

What Pranalife Yoga isn’t:


But we do teach in them, including @ Community of Hearts Yoga (owned by Pranalife Certified Instructor Selam Debs).

When you come to a Pranalife Yoga class, be ready to be challenged. 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.

~ Sue Angelopolous, Pranalife Yoga student

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