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.

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.

I came to the Pranakriya 200 hour training with the intention of teaching yoga. Not only did I land my first teaching job within a month of graduation - but the most important gift from the training was what I gained on the inside. The Pranakriya teachers and community treated me with loving kindness and compassion. This community helped me to find parts of myself that I never knew existed - and an incredible light within myself that I had been unconsciously hiding for much of my life. The training was extremely organized, and extremely thorough for potential teachers. Not only did I leave feeling prepared to lead a class - but I left feeling lighter in my soul. I continue to be grateful on a daily basis for the life I have as a yoga teacher - and grateful for my Pranakriya roots.

Deepen Your Understanding of Traditions and Philosophy

In the first half of the program, students will learn effective methodologies for teaching postures, pranayamas and centerings, along with 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 gentle stretch class, a meditative postures class, and a vinyasa workout class.

Our graduates have a deep understanding of yogic teachings and are prepared to teach in a variety of settings including yoga studios and gyms.

Pranakriya’s 200hr Yoga Teacher Training was so profound for me. I found myself just wanting to deepen my own practice, never truly knowing if I was going to teach yoga. I stepped into knowing myself on a deeper level, stepping into a teaching role I never imagined I was capable of.

This 200 hr teacher training program is so powerful, so well thought out! This training will teach you the basics in postures, pranayamas, and how to lead them safely for your students. It also teaches you history, anatomy, and how to really listen when people are talking and so much more. There is so much that I can say about how amazing and transformational this program is, but it truly needs to be experienced for you to have your own understanding.
