prAna

  1. prAna is an ancient sanskrit word which is often defined as pure energy, vitality of the spirit and, most notably, breath. So it feels natural to us that prAna is an ambassador for wind generated power as renewable energy plays a vital role in facilitating the transition away from fossil fuels.

  2. Jacinda Hunter, a nurse and mother of four (two boys and two girls), juggles work and parenthood with bouldering V11 and redpointing 14b. She says, “usually when I make up my mind to do something, I get it done.” Jacinda feels her biggest challenge is being a good parent and good example for her kids. “It’s hard to find time to provide opportunities for their interests and growth, and still have time to indulge in my own passions like climbing.” Jacinda and her husband, Mike, don’t have a TV-instead, the whole family goes on climbing trips together. Breaking the Law, her hardest route, was a long, cold winter project with the family. Her latest First Ascent "Fantasy Island" (5.14b) is in American Fork Canyon, Utah.

  3. My first time climbing in the gym was back in 1998 when I attended a birthday party of one of my neighborhood friends. I loved it and knew I wanted to continue climbing from that moment on. I feel that the training inside the gym has helped greatly with my outdoor success. Having a place to climb on a regular basis where you can give it your all and not worry about being injured is an amazing concept. Climbing in a gym has given me the strength to send the boulders that I have done outside in as quick of a fashion as possible. In the gym I usually warm up for about 15 minutes and then climb on hard boulders for around 3 hours. I like to try and set climbs with my friends of all different styles. This I feel helps me prepare for any type of boulders I will encounter out on the rocks. Some of my favorite climbing gyms include, CATS in Boulder, CO and Earth Treks in Timonium, MD. ~Paul Robinson

  4. I love to share my passion for climbing with everyone I come in touch with. Climbing is everything to me and it has brought me great things in life. It has given me the opportunity to meet so many awesome people and has led me to cool places around the world. There is nothing better than traveling around and getting to climb at different places. There are so many different types of rock and various types of movements and I want to experience them all!

  5. Dean Potter is characterized by creativity, commitment and challenge. He started climbing as a child, with a free solo fall from a stone wall as one of his earliest memories. Since that time, he has speed soloed Half Dome and El Capitan, Cerro Torre, and Fitzroy. He was the first to make a one-day free ascent of El Cap and Half Dome, and a one-day speed linkup of both of those big walls and Mount Watkins, Yosemites third Grade VI wall. He has also established testpiece crack routes in the Utah desert and highball boulder problems in Yosemite. For more on Dean visit prAna.com

    Dean has walked the longest highlines, often without a safety leash, though he has dedicated over a decade of engineering and testing to create the safest highline systems currently used. Most recently, he has combined BASE jumping skill with highlining and free soloing, using a specially engineered ultralight BASE rig as his backup system.

    Dean currently bases out of Yosemite, where he can usually be found on a large piece of granite.

prAna, an ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life and vitality of the spirit, has helped guide our actions and lift our aspirations since day one.

We started out two decades ago making clothing that worked well for climbing and yoga. It turned out that the clothing worked well for lots of other passions too, so we added new products with "purpose" in mind and scoured the world for design inspiration.

What's changed since then?

Not much - and a lot. We've grown a bunch, but most of our original employees are still here. We participate with like-minded folks who want to promote conservation and create positive change, which reflects the same intention as the old days, just taken up a few notches. Organic cotton, fair trade and wind power initiatives are on the short list of what we support.

We are inspired by athletes like climber Chris Sharma - who's been with us from the beginning - and yoginis like Shiva Rea.

Looking back, we think that the name prAna fits us pretty well. Looking ahead (because we love change), we're excited to see what the future holds.

That's our story & we welcome your feedback...
