PRANA'S PREFERRED PRACTITIONERS
Our amazing community has inspired me to create Dee’s List. Women are always asking my team to recommend wellness practitioners who share the same high level of quality that they enjoy within our studio. We have cultivated a sense of trust with our students, and they know that when we provide referrals, they can rest assured they are in good hands.
Dee’s List is different from a directory in that the partners you see listed here were nominated by women within our community. I have personally interviewed each of them and visited their facilities where appropriate. Each practitioner provided several references that I had the pleasure to speak with. In many instance, those references were Prana students who were able to give detailed, positive feedback about the services they received. I am confident that you are in great hands with each of the professionals listed below.
Our vetting process takes time! In the coming months, you will see the list build, as more categories of practitioners are added. Please feel free to reach out if you would like to nominate a practitioner you love, or if you are looking for a referral in a category that is not yet on the list.
A woman’s journey is beautifully complex and involves navigating constantly changing physical and emotional needs. Our intention is to make your search for resources even easier.
