PranakriyaTM 200hr Basic Yoga Teacher Training Program
Our Yoga Teacher Training program is for yoga practitioners who have a love for yoga born out of practice. We help these practitioners develop the skills needed to share yoga with students as professional teachers.

- At least two years of yoga practice (at least six months of classes with a certified instructor.)
- The ability to demonstrate an experiential understanding of yoga practice and its benefits.
The training is taught in nine intensive weekends, and class size is limited to 18 students. This format supports students having time to integrate the material, complete homework, and prepare for assigned practice teach sessions. A cap of 18 students is conducive to an interactive student/teacher relationship.
In the first half of the program students will learn an effective methodology for teaching postures and pranayamas (breathing exercises). They will learn 25 postures and five pranayamas that are appropriate for beginning level students. In the second half of the program they will learn to design and lead three kinds of classes: a vinyasa workout class, a meditative posture class, and a gentle stretch class. Our graduating teachers are prepared to teach in a variety of settings.
All sessions of each weekend must be attended and full participation in each session is required.
Session times are:

Spiritual Doorways: Swami Kripalu’s Approach to Asana with Yoganand
July 5th to July 7th, 2013
In the ancient Tantric Hatha Yoga traditions, yogis developed and practiced asanas as part of a biologically based spiritual technology. They practiced specific breathing patterns, internal focal points, and visualizations, for the purpose of inducing spiritual experiences. They raised their biological energy (prana) to very high states, causing transformation in perception and experience of Self. Most ancient yoga texts, including the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, were based on these experiences of altered states of consciousness. In this program we will use Swami Kripalu’s approach to asana to explore lesser-known techniques that can be used to enrich the practice of yoga.
