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.

After completing the 200 hour teacher training program, I felt confident that I could walk into a class and lead students through a safe and supported practice. Being able to practice teaching during the training was a wonderful way to begin to feel comfortable in the teacher role and it gave me the opportunity to observe different people and body types move through the postures. We learned to teach three distinct types of classes, almost assuring that we would be prepared to lead several types of classes upon completion of the program. Because of the thorough training, I was able to secure teaching jobs at local studios and put my skills to use immediately following graduation. If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose this training.

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 program incorporates asana, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, relaxation, observation and hands-on assisting, as well as reading and working with groups and individuals.
