      Hi Aleks i, yes we do have pranayama classes. If you go to the search tab on the far right at the top of the page (the magnifying glass icon) and type in pranayama, you will find the classes easily.

    super fabulous. I did not want to come out of the poses, and that was an accomplishment for me as I am such an anxious person.
