“Prana is the energy permeating the universe at all levels.” BKS Iyengar
This simple, yet profound idea that we are all connected through this boundless energy drives me everyday to embody this concept as a human being and as a yoga practitioner and teacher. The more I connect to myself on every level, the more connected I feel to the cosmic flow of the universe. THIS IS WHAT YOGA IS TO ME.
Planet Prana is the home of many exciting projects I’m currently working on. This site is all about the vibrant yoga community in Cleveland, Ohio. The basis of this work is to expand awareness of Yoga into every community within our bright city, and to inspire more Clevelanders to begin or grow their Yoga practice locally.
The site currently features a growing directory of local Yoga Teachers, Yoga Studios & Yoga Schools. The site is also the home of the CLE Yoga Teachers Kula, which is a group for local Yoga Teachers to come together for empowerment, growth and connection for each other on our journey as Yoga Teachers in the larger CLE community.
The latest manifestation of Planet Prana is the Yoga & Meditation Podcast. The mission of the podcast is to create awareness of yoga, community and connection through practice and service in Cleveland and beyond. The podcast features online yoga classes, guided meditations, yoga nidra and informative interviews hosted by me, highlighting the amazing talent of Cleveland area yoga teachers. Practice and listen anywhere and anytime on any device where you have online access. Each episode will live at planetprana.com/podcast with a detailed description via show notes and resources. The audio recordings will be posted on Soundcloud as well, under the name Planet Prana Cleveland. Over the course of the next several months, I’ll be preparing for season 3, where I will continue to add content from myself and other yoga teachers throughout the CLE yoga teaching community.
Most importantly, ALL OF THIS WORK IS BEING DONE RIGHT HERE IN THE CLE and is all about what is currently happening in our local yoga community and IS ACCESSIBLE TO THE ENTIRE PLANET VIA THE WORLD WIDE WEB!
Finally, if you’re interested in contributing to this site and helping me realize this dream with either writing, podcasting, media expertise or funding, please reply and to say hello and how you’d like to contribute. I’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!! I’ve also added a Paypal donate button throughout the website to help fund all of my work (the website, teachers’ kula, local yoga directory and equipment needed to create the podcast). Any donation is highly appreciated and will help me grow this community and podcast into something really special for Cleveland and beyond.
Peace, love, light and yoga for all beings!!
