Yoga is a collection of techniques and practices all aimed at integrating mind, body and spirit and achieving self awareness, enlightenment or oneness with the universe. The word Yoga means "joined together" and is derived from the Sanskrit word "yug" which means "to unify". Yoga aims at unifying the mind, body and spirit so that they are in harmony.
Yoga originated in the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India more than 5,000 years ago. The Rig Veda, a part of the Vedas (a collection of hyms used by ancient sages in India), mentioned the word Yoga and it was developed further into the different paths of yoga that we see today.
Yoga is not a religion but a spiritual practice that can be adopted by anyone. It does not require any specific belief system to participate. The philosophies of yoga are universal and can be incorporated within any belief system. Generally yoga is practiced based on ones individual,

I am totally enjoying my classes with Skila on Wednesdays and Pat on Saturdays. I just love them. I appreciate what they do. I leave the class relaxed and energized every time. Yoga has helped me a lot with relieving stress and flexibility with my aching body which might be age related.

The first thing I noticed was the smell, perfection! It was so relaxing and welcoming. I loved it at first sight. Some yoga studios look like a gym but this one is more 'spa-like'. I love it! The receptionist was very welcoming. I went to my first yoga meeting on Wednesday night with Pat. It was exactly what I needed that day. It was so relaxing and the instructor was very helpful and reassuring. I definitely recommend this yoga studio. I'm excited to try their spa services!

I think this is one of the best yoga studios in the area and come here regularly. I love the small classes and excellent instructors who encourage us to practice as our bodies allow. I particularly enjoy the "good vibes" from the participants and teachers in all the classes I attend.

I absolutely adore it here! I love the atmosphere... love the instructors... love the variety in the yoga classes. I've been a very faithful and active member for several years now and count it as one of the better decisions I've ever made! It has positvely impacted my body, health and general well-being. I HATE GYMS and think that YOGA in a loud, sweaty, smelly, mega- gym is just criminal! The instructors here are knowledgable and attentive, and encourage you to progress at a pace that is organic to your specific body and needs. The classes are intimately sized and each instructor specializes in their own particular brand of yoga- which is terrific and keeps things from being monotonous. (It's sorta like yoga-a-la-carte!) For the most part, everyone is friendly and welcoming. While I usually come for the yoga, I have occasionally, also sampled the spa offerings- and have found the experience, lovely. (If I had one, tiny regret, it would be that they do not have a more expansive list of class TIMES.) Nonetheless, I work around it, and Pranaa is my go-to place in Plano for my daily dose of wellness! So Yes, come join us. We can exhale together!
