Pranamar is beautiful and the food delicious. For me, it is the quality of the yoga teacher there that sets this resort apart. Nancy, the resident yoga teacher, is by far the best teacher I have studied with this year. Her classes are uplifting, exciting, and carefully structured to create a joyful experience. I have been to Kripalu, Omega, and...

Dear friend, I am so glad you enjoyed your time and Pranamar. Your review was so complimentary to my teaching and I thank you for expressing your feelings.

I needed some much needed downtime and chance to breathe, and this was definitely the place to come. The staff are amazing, the food was delicious and special/unique, and the yoga space was gorgeous. It is clear that the employees enjoy their work and providing the best for the guests.

This was our second trip to Pranamar, and it was a significant one.
