In the heart of Halifax's North End business district, yoga & bodywork come together in a way that encourages healing and growth through self discovery and education. Space is held for mentorship, massage therapy, meditation, collaboration, exploration and understanding. Pramana's belief is that we are all part of a universal bond of sharing that connects us as a community. It's mission is to make one another available for connection to a greater understanding by offering collaborative knowledge.
We strive to bring yoga back to the foundations on which it was built. Where class sizes are small and equal in level, where there is an opportunity to workshop and discuss the philosophies and reasoning behind the practice, where the relationship between teacher and student is deepened and of utmost importance. Group study, workshop, teacher-training and mentorship are all offered as an ongoing practice. Regular, weekly classes are tailored to specific levels in small groups, with the aim of building a strong foundation. Meditative sessions and continuing education are also complimentary focuses offered regularly. Crossover classes are a specialty that will be held monthly with eyes and hands-on assistance from a massage therapy standpoint.
Alicia Wright, RMT offers a deep massage therapy practice at Pramana. With roots in physical rehabilitation and deep tissue work, the body is approached by taking energetic and emotional factors into consideration. The client/therapist relationship is a focus to ensure a comfortable and secure space for release of restrictions and understanding of the holdings in the body. Options are offered to combine the complimentary modalities in either class collaborations or private sessions where she works with the client by using yoga as an assessment tool and soft tissue work to address issues.
