Our Story

What will it take to bring our community together in love and shared purpose?

Perhaps it has something to do with bringing people together, face-to-face, sharing a cup of tea, having a laugh, learning something new, together.


At Prairie Arts Yoga Studio, we welcome you as an old friend.

The studio is a space for learning, growing, meeting and making friends.

It is a place that invites transformation and healing, a place to share

and receive wisdom, comfort and love.


Join us for Yoga, Transformational Breathwork Journey, a Reiki Healing session or class to learn Reiki.  Visit our OFFERINGS page for more information about our 

classes, workshops and special events.


No matter who you love, how you believe, where you’ve been, or where you’re going, you are welcome here. Prairie Arts Yoga Studio is a place of warmth

where laughter and hugs are welcome.

Frank Marquez
Yoga/Intuitive Healer


  Frank was introduced to Yoga in 2017 by his wife Lisa. She suggested Yoga as an effective way of coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and combatting the idea he was aging. The practice paid dividends as he found more love and respect for his body. He followed Lisa in obtaining a 200-plus hour teaching certification from Master Yoga Teacher Melanie Lighthouser at Root to Rise in Fort Collins, Colorado, and will receive his certification in July of 2018. Both joyful and grateful, he found the practice of Yoga alleviated the predominant PTSD’s symptoms of depression and anxiety while making him stronger and happier. His focus is to attract fellow veterans and athletes in cultivating the overall benefits of becoming the “best possible” people they can be through developing such skills as breathing and meditation to improve the mind, body and spirit.

    Frank is also a Reiki, Level II practitioner, practicing energy healing for the past year since receiving his certification in February 2018. Frank has been a soldier for 23 years (a combat veteran with two tours in Afghanistan); a media professional for more than 30 years; and an educator in public schools for five years. He is currently employed by the Small Business Administration, Office of Disaster Assistance, as a public affairs specialist. Frank recommends Yoga to anyone seeking to be happier through authentic connections, believing strongly in yoga’s power to change lives through the practice. He will tell anyone who asks, that Yoga saved his life. “Coming to the practice late is far better than not coming at all.”
