Prana Fitness is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Denver, Colorado that conducts free or donation-based educational workshops for adults and children on fitness, nutrition, and injury prevention. We also provide free motivational messages and videos for healthy living, positive self-image, athletic technique and recovery, stress-relief, yoga, and fitness.
Prana is the Sanskrit word for "vital life." It is the notion of a vital, life-sustaining force of living beings, an energy believed to flow in our bodies through a network of subtle channels into every cell. To improve our vivacity, we can remove things that interrupt or block that flow of prana: self-imposed limitations on what we are capable of, walls of self-criticism that we let defeat us, and unhealthy bodies that we allow to rule all aspects of our lives.
Prana Fitness is founded on the premise that fitness support should be free and accessible to everyone, and embodies the principles of restoring the natural flow of this prana energy through our bodies. We can learn to challenge the excuses and obstacles we create to become the happiest versions of ourselves: fit, confident, and overflowing with contagious energy. The Prana Fitness community is friendly, non-judging, unintimidating, and refreshing. We don't seek to fit molds; we seek to learn to love ourselves and take pride in our unique beauty and strengths. Reveal the healthiest you through trying running, cycling, strength training, flexibility, whole nutrition, and emotional centering. This holistic approach to personal fitness works with very little equipment, utilizing how your amazing body was designed.
We seek to teach you and be taught by you. Be uplifted and uplift others. Experience the high of accomplishing fitness goals you never thought possible before. Meet new friends to support and journey alongside you. Learn a lifestyle of healthy habits. Shed physical and mental baggage. Love yourself and celebrate every mini-success. Quiet the internal naysayer. Invigorate your appetite for life. Savor the moments and add life to your years. Live life alive, eyes wide open and smile on your face.
