300-Hour Certification

About Pranakriya’s 300-hour Certification

Pranakriya Yoga is one of the most solidly grounded, transformational and logically structured yoga teacher training programs in the United States. Our program trains teachers  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. Upon completion of this program, you will be eligible for the RYT-500 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, and 80+ hours of specialized electives.

A Note About our 300-Hour Program:
Those working toward their 300-Hour Certification can keep track of their progress using this checklist.

We offer special pricing for repeat attendance at programs, and encourage students to repeat as often as you’d like. However, each program will only count once toward the 300-hour certification (link to main 300h page).

“Inspiring, comprehensive and challenging, Pranakriya went above and beyond my expectations!”

Eligibility and Requirements

There are no application procedures nor registration fees to start our 300-hour program, and courses do not have to be taken in any specific order. 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, or online when permitted. 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, earning the RYT-500 designation. 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.
