When I first came to Pranaa I was obese, eating somewhat healhty, taking medicine for depression, and ten months into recovery from drug addiction. I had lost faith in most Western medical practices and had been researching alternatives. Ayurveda made perfect sense. When I came for the first time, I saw Ritu Bhalla. She asked me a series of questions to discover my body type. Then I was given a daily diet and exercise plan specifically for someone with my body type. I began slowly implementing the new lifestyle and am seeing changes. I am continuing to lose weight, sleep better, have more energy, my moods are more stabilized, my medical doctors are decreasing the amount of anti-depressants I am taking. I plan to not take any soon, and I have been free for over a year from my addiction. This experience is unlike any other experience, it is truly spiritual and I am grateful to have found Pranaa.
I highly recommend Ritu Bhalla’s consultation and recommendations.

I was in search of an absolute professional well experienced in ayurvedic massage therapy. Based on feedback I heard from other clients, staff and speaking to Stephen Galik directly, it was evident that Stephen not only studies but thoroughly researches his practices, but is a complete healer. Stephen’s knowledge, expertise and powerful energy is complete magic that one must truly experience. I’m extremely grateful to have found Stephen as he continues to improve my health and overall wellness.

A jewel in Dallas. Finally a place to experience ayurvedic therapy rarely found in Dallas. The Panchakarma detoxed my mind, spirit & body.

I have been going to Ritu Bhalla for more than a year now for Shirodhara Ayurveda treatment . This procedure has helped me immensely in my allergies , stress , detoxing and helped me in my hair growth too . I had severe hair loss due to thyroid but now I feel better as it stopped . I am looking forward to many more benefits while continuing to get this done . Thank you Ritu Ji for such a superb and amazing treatment through Ayurveda .
About one month ago I had a consultation with Ritu and discussed my nutritional habits as well as the current state of my dosha. Ritu recommended various changes in diet and we began a massage with steam series.
Today, one month later, I have made those changes and was pleased to let her know that on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest felt my improvements (overall) were at a 7. I will continue the recommendations that she gave and look forward to even more energy and well being over the next month.

Rita’s firm yet gentle hands make for a relaxing facial and massage. She always asks if I have a special need – aches or pains or allergies to be addressed. Rita cares about my needs and remembers them with each visit. She is a true professional.

One of my friends recommended me to Pranaa Ayurveda center and specially asked me to contact Ritu Bhalla. Considering his opinion I thought of giving a try and scheduled an appointment with Ritu
Initially I spent one hour explaining my skin and hormonal problems. She exhibited lot of patience in hearing my problems and her recommendations on Ayurveda practice portrayed lot of confidence which motivated me to give it a try.
Within couple of weeks I could notice positive results. Also her welcoming approach and peaceful ambiance energizes me to visit Pranaa very often
I absolutely adore it here! I love the atmosphere… love the instructors… love the variety in the yoga classes. I’ve been a very faithful and active member for several years now and count it as one of the better decisions I’ve ever made! It has positvely impacted my body, health and general well-being. I HATE GYMS and think that YOGA in a loud, sweaty, smelly, mega- gym is just criminal! The instructors here are knowledgable and attentive, and encourage you to progress at a pace that is organic to your specific body and needs. The classes are intimately sized and each instructor specializes in their own particular brand of yoga- which is terrific and keeps things from being monotonous. (It’s sorta like yoga-a-la-carte!) For the most part, everyone is friendly and welcoming. While I usually come for the yoga, I have occasionally, also sampled the spa offerings- and have found the experience, lovely. (If I had one, tiny regret, it would be that they do not have a more expansive list of class TIMES.) Nonetheless, I work around it, and Pranaa is my go-to place in Plano for my daily dose of wellness! So Yes, come join us. We can exhale together!

With the stresses of re-modeling a home and raising a very active “almost” two-year old son, I come here knowing that when I leave I’ll feel all “human” again.

Just in the consultation meeting, I learnt so much regarding things which were affecting my energy levels. After putting into practice just a few minor changes & suggestions that Ritu Bhalla gave me I was able to feel an amazing difference. I followed up with her a week later for the pain in my lower back & did the Kati Basti, I can already feel a difference, not comparable to regular massages. Thank you Pranaa.
– Jessica M.
Ritu is very skillful Ayurveda Practitioner and she has helped me a lot in reducing stress and balancing my life with her advice. She is excellent in her Shirodhara and has also helped my ailments through Ayurvedic herbs. I am very grateful to Ritu. Thank you so very much!
– Sajji N.
I had been having lower back pain for about five months. I tried standard massage therapy, even saw a chiropractor 3 times a week for a month. No help. My massage therapist recommended I try Pranaa’s Kati Basti – after the 1st session, I was about 25% better. Now after 4, no lower back pain at all. It defenitly was a miracle worker for me.
– Carol W.
I am totally enjoying my classes with Skila on Wednesdays and Pat on Saturdays. I just love them. I appreciate what they do. I leave the class relaxed and energized every time. Yoga has helped me a lot with relieving stress and flexibility with my aching body which might be age related.
– Emma C.
I am so pleased! I had an ayurvedic consultation and a few shirodhara sessions with Ritu Bhalla. I am so excited about the results with Ritu’s Guidance & suggestins of what to eat, drink & how to take care of my body. I have enjoyed a calmer mind, more peace, less anxiety and more restful sleep. When I get too busy & not follow Ritu’s Ayurvedic suggestions, I definitely notice a difference. After only 4 weeks or so, I had two different people say that I looked “better & brighter”! I attribute it to my improved sleep & peace of mind that I have received. Thank You Ritu!.
– Angie H.
Having never experienced Kati Basti before, I didn’t really know what to expect. All of the ladies at Pranaa are very gracious and welcoming. My therapist, Ritu Bhalla, made me feel at home with her laymen explanations of Kati Basti and massage. With my first experience, I went from feeling pain and discomfort in my lower back to feeling almost no pain at all. The second experience has put me back to where I need to be. Overall, the experience has been so fulfilling that I’ve decided to sign up for yoga class at Pranaa.
– Lamar H.
Rita does a great job. She is a very talented massage therapist. She goes the extra mile and uses hot towels & essential oils and always asks how you are doing at each visit.

In the second year in a row, I have chosen to start my new year with the ancient therapies of Ayurveda. Having met Ritu Bhalla in 2010, I look forward to coming back for her professional knowledge and customization of my therapies. Her expertise is far superior to any “spa” therapy and she is very passionate and nurturing. I now begin a monthly session with her in 2011, which is a very beneficial investment in my health.
– Anne L.
I think this is one of the best yoga studios in the area and come here regularly. I love the small classes and excellent instructors who encourage us to practice as our bodies allow. I particularly enjoy the “good vibes” from the participants and teachers in all the classes I attend.

Having just experienced a loss of my baby at birth, I was looking for some therapies to help heal my body and mind. I did an online search for ayurveda and found Pranaa. My first appointment was for Shirodhara with Ritu. She was an instant blessing. She is professional, caring and knowledgeable. I own a Wellness Center. So I am very familiar with alternative therapies. Ritu has continued to impress me. The Shirodhara helps to calm my mind and emotions, bringing me a great sense of peace. I next scheduled an Abhyanga Warm Oil Massage which was beyond any massage experience I have had. Again, Ritu was a Shining Star. Wanting to help heal my body, I scheduled an Ayurvedic Nutritional Consultation with Ritu. Being on the Ayurvedic Program and diet she suggested has changed so much for me in a short period of time. One of my biggest changes is that I am now sleeping well. Because my sleep has improved my energy is increasing. The food she recommended for me is working well. Ritu has been anamazing angel in a very dark period of my life. Her therapies have put me on the road to wellness and a happy life once again.
– Kelly C.
After warm Abhyanga oil massage at Pranaa & a cup of soothing tea, I am so relaxed and refreshed. My problems seem to melt away. Pranaa has excellent services & great masseurs. I highly recommend it to everyone.
– Thuy M.
My time with Ritu was invaluable. She is informative without providing information overload. Her simple but clear explanations were very helpful for my beginner mind. I left with a “this is doable” attitude rather then, I’ll NEVER be able to do ALL this. Within days of beginning to institute some of her recommendations, I noticed a difference in some symptoms and the improvement has continued. It takes time to build new habits that are sustainable for the long term. I believe that Ritu knows that and is very wise in her approach. Wonderful experience..
– Beth M.
I turned 40 and decided it was time to approach my migraines, insomnia, stress and anxiety from a holistic perspective. Drugs were no longer working for me. I met with Ritu Bhalla for my very first Ayurvedic consultation in November 2010. Ritu introduced me to a new way of eating, thinking and living. In 3 short months I was about to regain a quality of life that I did not think I’d experience again. I have Ritu to thank for that. She’s amazing!
– Darlene A.
Ritu possessesthe practical arts and sceiences of ayurvedic healing. Her practice skill set is extra-ordinary. Keen insight, practical & uselful. I highly recommend her.
– Richard P.
I got Shirodhara only once and it helped me in my migraine and relaxation throughout the body. It’s been 1 1/2 months and I didn’t get my migraine.
– Seema S.
Ritu gave me an excellent consultation in regards to my emotional and physical health. Using her recommendations, my health has improved. I now juice my vegetables and fruits and every morning oil my scalp, face & body with coconut oil. The scalp massage is the most relaxing moment of the day and it relaxes me for the the full day.
The head massage she gives me has improved my hair growth and stimulated my scalp. Thank you Ritu!
– Khadijah A.
After the consultation I was able to put all of the recommendations on diet into my daily routine. After one week I felt much better overall. I had more energy and less hunger. I was also not bloated any longer. Ritu gave great advice and understanding.
Most of all she allowed me to give myself permission to listen to what my body needed not what other popular diets said I should do. Thank you Ritu!
– Natalia P.
Ritu has given me the tools and resources to bring more balance to my life – both physically and mentally. I would definitely recommend her services!
– Lena S.
This is so dramatic. I have not been so pain free in years!
– Paula M.
This was the best massage & spa experience I’ve ever had. Over the top experience!
– Randelle A.
I loved this kind of facial and massage. It was so much more involved than the typical “spa” version. The focus and knowledge and understanding shown by Ritu was just what I needed. She helped me find more movement in my hand I’d broke 3 months before. I felt like I could feel the blood circulating again! And I wasn’t flinching when she touched it. I will be back again & again.
– Anne T.
The atmosphere is both beautiful and relaxing. The staff are always pleasant and professional. The therapists are excellent. I would love to try all of your services!
– Debra W.
This is such a beautiful space. It just allows you to drift away. It’s like being on a vacation.

Sandra is a great massage therapist. Pranaa is very attractive, clean & well maintained. Pranaa’s scheduling, billing, customer service is first rate.
– Andy B.
I noticed my healing right after I joined Pranaa. I learned more about the foods I should eat and it was very nice and healing experience. When I first came to Pranaa I had digestive problems, stress & I was not able to sleep well. But after some ayurvedic therapies by Ritu Bhalla I am able to sleep very well & my digestive problems aren’t there anymore.
– Rosa C.
I am so pleased with what knowledge I gained at the Detox workshop. Ritu Bhalla is a wealth of information. She was so very helpful, she went above and beyond to answer our questions. I walked away with a clear path of the ayurvedic guidelines that will help improve my body & my mind. I would recommend this workshop and or a consultation with Ritu to anyone who wants to take charge of their helath.
– Angie H.
Ritu’s workshop on Ayurveda basics was highly informative. I’ve implemented many of the teachings and they’ve made a definitive impact on my well-being. The body massage with sesame oil, massage of the body’s joints, preparing a daily raw juice in the morning, keeping in mind the j oy of eating full meals that satisfy, not only the body’s physical needs, but the joy of eating itlself.
The private consultation was good too because Ritu inspired confidence in me that I could care a rash that has persisted for years. She was right! Ritu is very intuitive and I will continue to consult her on all health matters. I love the harmony of nature -“natural health care” which Ayurveda advocates.
