My happy place! Amazing experience every time I go. Lydia is the best masseuse I’ve ever had! She really knows the muscles of the body and different techniques to help relieve your pain and stress. She is the sweetest, most considerate person! I always like to book my massage and look forward to it all week long :) 🙏🏼
Pranakriya Yoga is one of the most solidly grounded, transformational and logically structured yoga teacher trainings in the country. Our program trains practitioners who have a love for yoga born out of practice and experience. Our goal is to skillfully encourage personal reflection regarding physical, mental and emotional aspects inherent in each pose, pranayama and meditation, helping students recognize that what is discovered on the mat can be used in everyday living.
Our Directors are compassionate and reassuring, asking teachers in training to play with the edges of their comfort zone so they can feel fully alive. Once they discover this aliveness, they in turn can share it with others.
Our program is steeped in the Tantric Hatha Yoga Philosophy but also created from adult learning models. We thread together asana, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, relaxation, observation and hands-on assisting as well as reading and working with groups and individuals.
The training is taught in nine, intensive weekends and class size is limited to 24 students. This format supports students having time to integrate the material, complete homework and prepare for assigned practice-teach sessions.
In the first half of the program, students will learn effective methodologies for teaching postures, pranayamas and centerings.
Deepen Your Understanding of Traditions and Philosophy
Students will also learn about the history and philosophy of the Tantra Hatha Yoga tradition.
In the second half of the program, students will learn to design and lead three kinds of classes: a vinyasa workout class, a meditative posture class, and a gentle stretch class.
Our graduates have a deep understanding of the teachings of yoga and will be prepared to teach in a variety of settings including yoga studios and gyms.
Requirements for Program Eligibility
You must meet the following requirements to take our program:
At least one year of yoga practice (at least six months of classes with a certified instructor.)
The ability to demonstrate an experiential understanding of yoga practice and its benefits.
When I decided to commit to YTT, I didn’t see myself teaching. I just wanted a deeper practice: what I got in return was so much more. An awakening within, a renewed sense of belonging, a strong confidence to teach and a broad yet flexible training that I could apply anywhere and with various populations. What I know for sure is not all YTT’s are the same. I am glad that I studied with Pranakriya.
As I’ve ventured out into the world to instruct those with sleep issues as well as military service members, veterans and their families, I know that I had one of the best yoga trainings around. It has definitely prepared me to work with specialized populations in a way that I didn’t see coming!
