MELT Method®101

If there was a way for you to maintain the health and longevity of your joints, wouldn’t you want to know about it? In the pain science world, there’s a new anatomical star on the street, and its name is fascia. Also called connective tissue, our fascia are bands of thin, flexible, and fibrous tissue that wrap around and support every single structure in your body. We’re talking organs, muscles, nerves, tendons, blood vessels, bones, and, yes, our joints. Fascia holds us up and sets the tone for our posture. It stabilizes our joints as we move, bear weight, and do all the things that we do. Our joints are emerged in and surrounded by connective tissue, and by keeping that tissue happy, we keep our joints happy. Unhappy joints become stiff and inflamed. They ache in the morning and after a long walk or run. But it’s not our fault! As biped creatures living within gravity’s pull who move and use our...

It seems like yesterday that we opened our doors, and here we are 15 years later, saying “where did the time go?” We've offered thousands of classes, hundreds of workshops, and trainings and have hosted many incredible facilitators we now feel blessed to call friends. Everyone has inspired us to keep going and continue supporting us with their energy, time, and love. For this year's festivities, you will see we have some fun prizes, giveaways and Class Package savings. We also have some surprises too! Join us for class or drop by, enjoy some organic tea, and browse the Centre and PranaShanti boutique. As we celebrate 15 remarkable years together, we're grateful...

The Fourth Trimester: Postpartum Reflections

The Fourth Trimester: Postpartum Reflections

By Brittany Webster, owner of Consciously Curated Home As an expectant mother, I found that the focus of maternity seemed to be on preparing for childbirth and creating a beautiful nursery room for my baby.  I could find books, guides, blogs and advice on morning sickness, birthing techniques, baby equipment and decorating - but those post-birth weeks when a mother is at her most vulnerable, when days are filled with feeding, changing, naps (and if you’re lucky you sneak in a shower) are shrouded in mystery. We don’t talk about the Fourth Trimester. Only a few select girlfriends imparted some honest words of wisdom having recently struggled through this time themselves.  In the Western world, by and large, we’re encouraged to get back to routine, work, our ‘pre-baby’ body.  These impossible standards, glorified in the media, on social, even by friends and family, are ridiculous. “You can’t even tell she had a baby!” “So when are you heading back to work?” In reality, we should be...

PranaShanti Education Centre

Ego says, "Once everything falls into place, I'll feel peace." Spirit says, "Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place." - Marianne Williamson   We don't need all the answers right now. Start with peace and the rest will fall into place...and likely in better ways than you could have ever imagined!  When COVID hit and we were mandated to close, I went home and sat on my couch for a deep think! What will we do? How will we continue to support the students, teachers and staff? The answer - we go online and we go online right now! In less than 3 days from closure we were offering FREE live stream classes to the community and to the world! Teachers were paid and we were able to retain some staff.
