PranaShakti_logo_with_TM_newWhat is PranaShakti™?

PranaShakti™ is a conscious dance practice that combines elements from many forms of dance, Ayurveda, Kundalini Yoga and Hatha Yoga to remove energy blocks, liberate trapped energy, reconnect mind and body, reawaken creativity, express emotions, pray with the body and ultimately come home to peace, love and freedom. You can expect to sweat, laugh, cry and be set free.

Who is Dr. Deb?

Dr. Deb Kern has been teaching movement for 35 years.  A Ph.D. Health Scientist, Dr. Deb is certified by the American College on Exercise as a Group Fitness instructor and holds certifications as a Black Belt Nia Instructor, Integral Hatha Yoga Instructor, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist, Reiki Practitioner and Pilates Mat Instructor.

While in yoga teacher training at Satchidananda Ashram in 1994 she set aside her 14 year love affair with music and dance to be a ‘serious yogini.’  But after a month she was caught and reprimanded for sneaking into the basement to dance (using a “Hooked on Classics” cassette tape in the flip top cassette player used to record classes!)  To her surprise and delight, Swami Satchidananda not only pardoned her for her ‘sin’ but proclaimed a mass dance party after Satsang that week as a way to teach that dance has an important place in the yogic lifestyle.
