prana celebrates national yoga month

prAna is a lifestyle brand that draws its name from the ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life and vitality of the spirit. Born from climbing and yoga, the prAna team creates mindfully-designed, purposeful and stylish apparel for free-spirited people to pursue their passions on the water, mat, rock, trail, and street.

prAna is celebrating National Yoga Month with free yoga classes at its stores in Boulder, Portland, Denver, San Francisco, and Minneapolis, free of charge.

“National Yoga Month is a wonderful time to focus on health, balance, and wellness,” said prAna’s Director of Retail, Tim Wakaruk. “We try to make our stores an inviting part of the community by offering wellness information sessions, speakers and of course, free specialty and regular yoga classes all year—so this month we hope you join us to start, deepen, or rediscover yoga.”

Free yoga class schedules are available online by visiting prAna.com/retail-stores. For people outside of these five cities, prAna is offering another way to celebrate.
In honor of National Yoga Month, prAna has launched an explorative series on the practice of Ayurveda — a healing method to balance an intense yoga practice.

“Ayurveda has changed my life because Ayurveda has become a way of life,” said prAna ambassador Shiva Rea. “I wasn’t aware of how much a challenging yoga practice was wearing down my body, so these methods really help me.”

Examples of Ayurvedic elements anyone can add to their routines include eating particular foods and herbs, taking care of your skin with natural oils and cleansing, and developing an emotional awareness grounded in its effects on the body.

This series is launched in partnership with Banyan Botanicals. New posts go up at prana.com/life on Mondays, along with other great resources like yoga videos and articles throughout every week.
