Summertime Fun Savings in BACK!

Summertime Fun Savings in BACK!

Our annual Summertime Fun Savings is back! We're always so impressed how dedicated our yogis are through the Ottawa winter, that when it comes to summer, we want to help you maintain the benefits of a regular yoga practice for health and vibrancy through the warm months. That's why between NOW and August 31st, 2022, when you purchase a 10 or 20 class package, you'll receive some FREE yoga in the month of August. The class packages do not expire and the bonus classes are valid for use between August 1 to August 31st, 2022. When you purchase... A 10 class package = 5 free August classes. A 20 class package = 10 free August classes. You can purchase online or at the Centre, and your classes will be added to your account.

PranaShanti Education Centre

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. We kept the FREE classes going for 5 weeks! Hundreds joined in daily from around the world.   Then the next reality sunk in that we are in...

Our NEW hOMe!

Where is our new hOMe? Many have been wondering. We've had tonnes of emails and social media questions about it and I've even heard there was a bet or 2 going! Drum roll please... Our new location is 950 Gladstone Avenue! We are thrilled and trust you will love it too! The location is central, close to the newest LRT, has free 3 hour street parking and designated parking for our use. We are easy walking distance to the restaurants on Preston Street and the shops and cafes we adore on Wellington Street. Our new hOMe was built in the late 1800's as a wholesale hardware warehouse. Built on a timber frame with post and beam construction, it is one of the only buildings of its kind remaining in Ottawa. We will have 3 studio rooms; Body, Mind and Soul. There are large windows, high ceiling and lots of interesting architectural features. It's a COVID-19 good news story with a fresh energy for a new...
