  • Pramana's Alica Wright and Lara Frankcom

Massage therapist Alicia Wright and yoga instructor Lara Frankcom will combine forces at Pramana—a new business coming to Gottingen street in August.

Wright describes Pramana as a space to learn about your body. A client’s needs can dictate the service they receive. For example, if someone is trying to correct an injury, Wright and Frankcom would work together to assess and treat the client, and also provide them with a set of exercises to take home. The services will be offered separately as well. Yoga at Pramana will be focused on small classes sizes and body alignment work. Wright will offer deep massage therapy, with roots in tissue work and physical rehabilitation.

“We didn’t want to look like a yoga studio, and we didn’t want to look a wellness centre,” says Wright. “Our vision of health and wellness and the way we approach the body is similar—but it’s hard to get that across.” In order to try and communicate their vision, the business partners decided on the name Pramana, which refers to the philosophy of attaining “true and accurate knowledge.”

“We want to bring community together—to be a non-pretentious, accessible and open place,” says Wright. “Once you learn about your physical body, you can go deeper into connecting with yourself.”

Pramana is set to open at 2207 Gottingen Street—Megan Leslie’s former office— in early August. See its website for price listings.
