About

Welcome to the Prana Yoga & Acting Center in Holliston, MA!

Prana Center

The Prana Center is a warm, welcoming studio where children can learn and grow through the performing arts, and adults can find a respite from their busy lives with supportive Yoga classes.

Director Roberta Weiner started the Prana Yoga & Acting Center in Holliston as a safe place to learn, grow, and relax.

We have two separate but very complementary missions!

The Prana Acting Center is designed to be a supportive way for children to develop self-confidence, public speaking skills, and learn more about acting and working as a team. We offer classes, productions, and a summer program.

The Prana Yoga Center is inspired by the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge, MA, where Roberta received her second yoga certification. Prana’s mission is to bring the joy and benefits of Yoga to friends old and new throughout the region. Beginners are warmly welcomed, and students of all levels can find the perfect class for you! We are a one-stop yoga studio, with styles ranging from Kripalu to Vinyasa, from Slow Flow to Hatha, and much more. We also offer specialty classes, including restorative yoga and mindfulness meditation. Plus private yoga and yoga on request – let us know what you’re looking for!

Services we offer at Prana:

  • Yoga classes for children, teens, and adults - currently via Zoom!
  • Acting classes for children and teens
  • Private yoga classes including Yoga for Scouts
  • Yoga at your school or company
  • Custom-designed yoga and acting classes
  • The opportunity to get involved in our theatre group, Prana Productions!
  • Tutoring for Destination Imagination groups
  • Private sessions in Yoga, Makeup Design and Acting for Scout troops

Conveniently located at 21 Charles St., Holliston, MA 01746. We are in downtown Holliston behind the Holliston Public Library. Just minutes from neighboring towns, including Ashland, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Milford and Sherborn. Plenty of free off-street parking, and also convenient for children to walk from Holliston’s Placentino and Miller Elementary Schools, and Robert Adams Middle School

Client Reviews

The Prana Acting Center runs four or more shows per year, acting classes, plus a popular Summer Acting Camp – going into our 18th year! All our camps, acting classes, and preparation for productions are taught in the same safe environment as our yoga classes, where students can take risks without fear of ridicule or failure. Students build their acting skills while increasing their self-esteem, comfort with public speaking, and much more. Our students say Prana is their second family, and they return year after year!

The Prana Center has been one of my homes away from home for the last 12 years. It is a wellspring for creativity that celebrates artists (young and old) through acting, dancing, and yoga. The Prana Center gave me the opportunity to explore my talents, work together with kids of all ages, and evolve from a young performer into an experienced senior counselor at Prana summer camp.

The individuals involved with Prana productions are truly my family! Under the expert guidance of Roberta Weiner, kids will learn and grow in a supportive, knowledgeable, and inclusive setting. Prana summer camp is a unique, warm, accepting, and extraordinary environment. Give your child the gift of experiencing the Prana Center.

Both my kids love doing Prana shows, classes, and camps! The Let's Put On A Play class was a FANTASTIC way to get the younger kids (grades K through 2) speaking roles and encourage acting in a low-pressure and fun environment. Both Amanda and Roberta are amazing with children. Highly recommend!!

I can't say enough about how wonderful Prana has been for my daughter! One year ago she was the most shy child who would barely even say hello to people she knows well. This weekend, I just watched her sing and dance her heart out on stage with a huge smile on her face in Beauty and the Beast! The confidence she has gained is amazing! Roberta and all the wonderful teachers at Prana have captivated her, and now we are hooked! We are so grateful to have found this amazing gem in our town!

I LOVE the class (Beginner's Yoga). Just love it love it love it. I sleep like a baby after each class. I swear it's already contributed to my lowered blood pressure (confirmed by my tracking and doctor). During times of stress outside of class, I feel I'm already now equipped to breathe and relax and take myself to a peaceful state of mind I've never reached before thanks to this class.

My daughter has participated in Prana acting center for the past two years. She has developed a great appreciation for the hard work and effort that are involved in making a show come together. Prana gives her the opportunity to be a positive example for younger actors as well as the chance to learn from the older kids in the program. The confidence and happiness she experiences at Prana are the greatest reward of all. We are so thankful for Roberta and her staff.

Roberta, I've said this before but it bears repeating. The sense of comradery, spirit, dignity and fun you give to our community through the children's theatre is immeasurable. I love seeing how the children rise to every occasion nurtured by your love, energy and leadership. Fiddler - a truly adult play - was testimonial to the beauty of theatre for every age.

I cannot say enough positive things about the Prana Center. Roberta has developed a supportive, caring, positive community where everyone is valued and the kids work together in such wonderful ways. My children have gained so much self-confidence and interpersonal skills, not to mention a love and appreciation for theatre.

Prana yoga center has provided a comfortable environment for me to focus on becoming physically stronger and internally calmer. Taking the time to practice yoga during the week has resulted in my having the ability to feel more centered and compassionate. I have learned how to relax and let go of worries while I am on the mat. Roberta has taught me the benefit of what she aptly refers to as “taking a well deserved rest”. When I am well rested, stronger and calmer, everyone in the family benefits.

I have been working with Prana for just over a year. I love it so much!! I have a second home and family here. I want to give a big thanks to Roberta for taking me under her wing and showing me around. I would not be myself today without her. Prana Center is such a wonderful environment, and there are so many wonderful people here. I definitely recommend to send your kids here if they love to act!

Have been doing yoga now for 9 weeks with Roberta. I’m feeling more relaxed. The best is a better night's sleep!

I can’t say enough good things about the Prana Center and Prana Productions. My daughter has been involved in Prana summer drama camp, school vacation camp, the larger musicals, and the smaller, age-based productions for several years now, and Prana is one of the defining experiences of her childhood. Roberta and all her wonderful staff emphasize responsibility, respect, and teamwork, and the positive, supportive environment empowers kids to grow and challenge themselves.

Prana gives them a chance to make new friends, learn new skills, and gain confidence, and they learn an important lesson: everyone contributes to a successful show, and every part matters. Most importantly, they have so much fun doing it! The happiest days in our household are the ones where my daughter knows she is going to Prana. We are so grateful for Prana, and recommend it most highly.

Prana Center is welcoming and inviting. After being diagnosed with arthritis in the knee, I started to go to Roberta and Sharon’s classes. Not only did I strengthen my knee ( no more limping), I am having fun and making new friends. Come, join us for a couple of classes. I guarantee that you will become a Prana Center yoga regular like I have become.
