After living at Mangrove Yoga Ashram for a few years, we (John and Christina) learned the importance of Prana. Whilst Prana is in everything, it varies in degrees.
Something full of Prana brings vitality, 'aliveness,' energy - it feels good. By eating, drinking, washing, nourishing and being around things that are beaming with Prana, we increase that energy within.
"Everybody wants to feel good. Our intention is to produce food, products and practices that help people feel good."

Real food and real products for real people
Prana - life force, that underlying energy that permeates the entire Universe.
After leaving the ashram we moved to a small unit by the coast and discovered you don't need a big backyard to grow your own veggies. We even had a bee hive nestled behind the water tank and some bantom chooks that roamed the garden.
Christina was teaching 20+ yoga classes a week to people ranging from 2 years to 94 years old and John was working as a chef, which he'd done for 22 years.
Knowing the power of the mind and manifestations we made a vision board of our dreams and where we would like to be in 5 years.
Gradually things on our vision board were coming true. We fell pregnant, purchased a 20 acre property, began practicing biodynamics, ran overseas yoga retreats and harvesting enough food to feed ourselves and others.
In 2015 we moved with our son, Kailash, to Braidwood and began to build our home. Whilst building we lived in a 3x4 meter shack with an outside toilet, shower and kitchen. We didn't know anyone in the area so we spread our roots and connected with the community.
During the house build we continued our passions of yoga, real food, natural skincare and ethical home products to positively impact our health and quality of life. Prana Produce was then created so we could share these passions with others.
We fell pregnant again, this time with twins. The need to finish the house
was a little more pressing so John picked up the pace and spent most his
waking hours building.
At 26 weeks our identical twin baby girls arrived, Samsara and Maya.
Samsara was a stillbborn and Maya spent her first 4 months of life in
This experience emphasied the importance of health, family, life, love and happiness.
We reassessed our values and looked at what was most important to us. Living life. Sharing what we love. Being real, honest and authentic. Prana Produce was this. It was us, what we valued, what was important.
Prana brings vitality, 'aliveness,' energy - it feels good.
