Glow Yoga with PranaTonic

December 14, 2018

Tomorrow night (Saturday, December 15th) from 7-8:30PM, PranaTonic is offering Glow in the Dark Yoga for Winter Solstice.

The winter solstice is considered a turning point in the year in many cultures. The sacred day is the day with the fewest hours of sunlight in the whole year. Come join us and glow in the darkness as a celebration of the Winter Solstice. This class is for Adults only.

On Sunday (December 16th) from 2:30-4PM, PranaTonic will host Glow Yoga for Kids and Families.

Come on a yoga adventure, sing songs and play yoga with your kids, all while glowing in the dark. This class will include games for all ages, and is a child centered yoga class.

Keep in mind, it will be dark and may not be fitting for all babies and kids.
The first 30 minutes are to paint yourself to get your glow on. Glow paint will be provided.  Feel free to bring any fun glow items of your choosing!

This sounds like a blast!  Sign up through PranaTonic’s website or call the studio to register.

Grateful Kids at PranaTonic

November 18, 2018

PranaTonic Yoga and Wellness - Golden CO

Monday through Wednesday from 1:30-2:30 PranaTonic will present a holiday-inspired yoga and mindfulness workshop for kids 5 and up.Classic yoga teaches two of the most important life skills anyone can have, mindfulness and body awareness. In this workshop students will take time working with both to cultivate one of the facets of life that is crucial to long-term happiness. As part of the session, each student will go home with a small gratitude journal in which they can continue the practice through the gift-giving season. Parents will receive a handout with ideas in which they can utilize the season to help their child find gratitude each day all year long.

Each session students will practice classic teachings of yoga postures and breathing techniques with kid-friendly names to find a deeper mind-body awareness. From there we will use mindful awareness techniques, calming breathing techniques, mindfulness stories, and cooperative community activities to find appreciation in various aspects of life.

Practicing yoga and mindfulness with us will help your child increase motor skills, emotional intelligence, social skills, and creativity.

$60 for all three days

New Belly Dance Class at PranaTonic

September 30, 2018

PranaTonic Yoga Studio - Golden Colorado

PranaTonic will be starting a new class, Belly Dance Fusion For ALL Levels, tomorrow evening. The class will meet Monday evenings at 6:30 for seven sessions. The cost is $88 for all 7 sessions of $16 per drop-in.

Learn to belly dance! Based on American Tribal Style® & Fusion Belly Dance, this unintimidating class is a fun way to work out and learn the dance vocabulary! Beginners are welcome. We will be focusing on group improvisation and strong, energetic, rhythmic movements in this session! Get ready to shake things up! Bring your finger cymbals if you have them. (They are also available to borrow or purchase).

All ability levels, shapes and sizes are welcomed and encouraged! This time-honored dance style isn’t just a beautiful path for fitness. Belly dancing enhances self-expression and self-confidence. Through dancing, we can learn to love and appreciate our bodies exactly as they are, while becoming stronger and more flexible at the same time. No previous dance experience is needed.  Contact the studio to sign up.
