Pranayoga authentically weaves Ayurveda and Yoga into our classes, personalized sessions and trainings. We believe that not all people should practice yoga in the same way and in the same style all the time. Our style of yoga is informed by Ayurveda and individualized to your current condition and environment. Our style, Sattva means balance. We move according to the seasons and our bodies to bring balance. Pranayoga's classes are crafted and adapted to the individual and the season to give you optimal movement nutrition. All of Pranayoga's teachers are trained in traditional Hatha, Tantra, Ayurveda, and yoga therapy.

So what is the difference between Yoga and Exercise?

Yoga

  • Parasympathetic nervous system dominates
  • Subcortical regions of the brain dominate
  • Slow dynamic and static movements
  • Normalization of muscle tone
  • Low risk of injuring muscles and ligaments
  • Low caloric consumption
  • Effort is minimized, relaxed
  • Energizing (breathing is natural or controlled)
  • Balanced activity of opposing muscle groups
  • Noncompetitive, process-oriented
  • Awareness is internal
  • (focus is on breath and the infinite)
  • Limitless possibilities for growth in self-awareness

Exercise

  • Sympathetic nervous system dominates
  • Cortical regions of brain dominate
  • Rapid forceful movements
  • Increased muscle tension
  • Higher risk of injury
  • Moderate to high caloric consumption
  • Effort is maximized
  • Fatiguing (breathing is taxed)
  • Imbalanced activity of opposing groups
  • Competitive, goal-oriented
  • Awareness is external
    (focus is on reaching the toes, reaching the finish line, etc.)
  • Boredom factor
