300-Hour Yoga Certification

Welcome to the Pranakriya School of Yogic Healing Arts 300-Hour Professional Development Certification!

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 zones so they can feel fully alive. Once they discover this aliveness, they in turn can share it with others.

Our program consists of 300+ hours of coursework and practicum, exceeding the Yoga Alliance standards. Completion of this program will earn you your RYT-300 designation from the Yoga Alliance. This program is for students that have already completed a 200-hour basic yoga teacher training with Pranakriya or any other certified yoga school. Within this program you will complete:

    • 200+ hours of required core curriculum
    • 80+ hours of specialized electives

After completing an approved 200-hour yoga teacher training, you may take the required courses as we rotate through them at any of our host studios. After finishing each course you will receive a letter of completion. When you have completed your coursework you may register with us as a Pranakriya Professional Level Yoga Teacher.

There is a $50 registration fee to review your letters and issue your certificate. With this certificate you may register with the Yoga Alliance as a 300-hour graduate of a Registered Yoga School. We encourage teachers to participate in our training courses in a way that suits each one’s interest, time and financial well-being.  Due to the nature of the advanced courses, we recommend students take three to four programs per year; completing certification in 3-4 years. We believe this allows for the greatest integration of the program material, opportunity to deepen your own practice, put the learning into your teaching and have time for reflection/questions before your next course.

If you’d like to travel for a program, many of our Host Studios offer housing options for out-of-town guests.  Contact the specific studio to find out more.
