Introducing Sundara Prana
At Mantra Yoga Studio we are always looking for ways to better serve our yoga community. With that in mind, we are pleased to announce a new offering at the studio – Sundara Prana.Sundara Prana translates literally to mean Beautiful Energy and is a new initiative from Laura Barnes. Laura views yoga primarily as the beautiful movement of energy throughout the body and the mind creating change by shifting old energetic patterns and intends to impart that with this one on one approach. “Over the course of 20 years of practicing and teaching, the remarkable changes that are so gracefully created through the practice of yoga have never ceased to amaze me. On a physical, psychological and spiritual level, this lovely movement and the opportunity that it creates to actually connect with oneself is really the answer to all of our questions. Our practice gives us the keys to open the doors and find the information that lives in us all.” 

“I look forward to the chance to help people help themselves.” Sundara Prana is an opportunity to work one on one with Laura and address your specific challenges with breath, meditation and postures in the privacy of a one on one setting. She will also refer to a network of alternative healing specialists as required to completely serve your needs. 

Laura has worked with students on the following: - insomnia - incontinence - physical challenges – back, neck, hip and shoulder pain - weight loss - Detox -anxiety - “clean” eating - depression - smoking cessation - hyper activity - recovery from illness or surgery - soft addictions - coping with grief and loss - seated yoga for mobility and balance challenges
