200-Hour Basic Yoga Teacher Training Overview

Whole Body Yoga Studio (WBYS) is proud to serve as a Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts host studio and offer their Yoga Alliance certified 200-Hour Basic Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program.

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.

Pranakriya 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.

Students in the program work hard, have a great time and leave the program fully prepared to teach in the real world

200 Hour YTT – Program Highlights

The Pranakriya program is steeped in the Tantric Hatha Yoga Philosophy and created using adult learning models. The training is taught in nine, intensive weekends with a class size limited to 24 students. This format provides students time and space to integrate the material, complete homework and prepare for assigned practice-teach sessions. This program incorporates asana, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, relaxation, observation and hands-on assisting, as well as reading and working with groups and individuals.

The Pranakriya Basic 200-hour YTT is registered with the Yoga Alliance and meets or exceeds its requirements for 200-hour teacher training programs.
