Thank you for your interest in the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts’ 200 hour yoga teacher training. Our program is steeped in the Tantric Hatha Yoga Philosophy but is also created from adult learning models. We thread together asana, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, relaxation, observation and hands-on assisting as well as reading and working with groups and individuals.
The training is taught in nine, intensive weekends and class size is limited to 24 students. This format supports students having time to integrate the material, complete homework and prepare for assigned practice-teach sessions. For programs taking place in 2021, we have gone fully virtual in order to best support students and teachers.
In the first half of the program, students will learn effective methodologies for teaching postures, pranayamas and centerings. Students will also learn about the 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 vinyasa workout class, a meditative posture class, and a gentle stretch class. Our graduates have a deep understanding of the teachings of yoga and will be prepared to teach in a variety of settings including yoga studios, gyms and on-line.
