PranaShanti embodies the next evolution in sustainable business. Our mission is mindful living on and off the yoga mat, and we host a variety of special events and fundraisers to raise money and awareness around issues close to our hearts, as well as donating gifts of yoga or yoga props for silent auctions at local fundraising events.
Each week we offer a yoga class with 100% of the proceeds donated by the teacher and PranaShanti to a local, charitable organization.
Additionally, we provide an Energy Exchange (Seva) program for those who experience financial barriers to a yoga practice. In this program, yoga students contribute their time and energy through cleaning, postering, flyer delivery, and helping at the front desk during events, in exchange for yoga classes.
Our intention at PranaShanti is to create an oasis in the city of Ottawa for the practice of yoga in a diversity of methods. This is a space where all are welcome: here you will heal and strengthen your body, calm your mind, and rejuvenate your spirit.
Our teachers bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the highest quality of teaching. They have devoted their lives and careers to sharing the benefits of yoga and meditation, and embody PranaShanti’s own spirit of continuous education.
We provide a soothing space where you can explore many approaches to the same outcome: creating ease in your life. We encourage you to be curious, relax, and take your time so you can leave feeling renewed.
We invite you to experience the PranaShanti difference.

PranaShanti is a yoga centre that facilitates daily drop-in classes, frequent workshops and events, health and wellness services, and foundational as well as ongoing yoga education. Our visitors range from those who make time for weekly stress management to career yogis seeking additional education.
Our dedicated staff are on the front desk to support the centre experience, and we offer a variety of class packages to suit your schedule. The centre has three studio rooms for yoga and meditation classes, as well as washroom and shower facilities, so we can offer many classes, events, and workshops simultaneously.
Our centre offers several kinds of yoga in our daily drop-in classes, as different students require different styles of practice. For those who can accommodate multiple classes in a week, this allows students to reap the benefits of various styles in one space.
Our intention is to provide an oasis in the city.
