Our 15 Year Anniversary

Our 15 Year Anniversary

Greetings and Happy Anniversary! Being part of this fantastic community has been an honour and a blessing. But without YOU, there would be no PranaShanti. So many of you have been with us from the very start, and so many more of you have found us somewhere along your own yoga journey. 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...

Writing to Write by Jessie Carson

Writing to Write by Jessie Carson

Have you ever wanted to start (or re-start) a writing practice and just can’t seem to make it happen? Maybe you think you don’t have the time or you don’t think it’s productive or that there is no benefit unless you publish. Those roadblocks along with many other myths are just some of the excuses we tell ourselves to keep us from creating and reaping the benefits that come from a creative practice. Writing for no other purpose but ‘to write’ can be a helpful thing to do during times of uncertainty. It is a simple practice where writing for as short a time as three minutes can be beneficial after one session. While there are no guarantees, writing often helps people make sense of things going on in their lives. Writing can also help with processing and coping. No matter what ‘purpose’ we have for writing, many people know that writing can be settling and comforting. Franz Kafka, a writer of...
