Ashley says her success is rooted in frustration. In response to that frustration, Black Prāṇa Magazine was born.

Megan is a reiki master and 500hr instructor trained and certified in the Hatha tradition from local teachers John C.Stierwalt, Dale Morphew, Shelly Happel, and Jessica Lynne Trese. Each class Megan teaches is meant to be a journey through physical poses to experience balance between breath, stillness of the mind.

· Our Mission ·

The Bella Prāṇa Collective believes that wellness shouldn’t be a luxury, that wholeness cannot exist without equity, and that every person deserves access to healing experiences. We are a gathering place, a collective of people who participate in their own healing and celebrate each other as we are. We are powered by the vision of a world filled with compassion and built on equity. We seek to be awakened through the ancient healing practices of yoga and meditation gifted to us by the ancestors of South Asia and yogis all over the world. We aren’t interested in anything less than your imperfect self, because we all have things to give, and things to unlearn. We are driven by curiosity, reject the pursuit of perfection, and will boldly speak to anything that does not foster community. It does not matter who you are, how you identify, where you are from, what you do or who you love. As you are in this moment, and every version you will become – we want to be your home.
