Pranakriya Yoga is one of the most transformational and logically structured yoga teacher trainings in the country.  Our program threads together asana, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, relaxation, observation and hands-on assisting.  Our goal is to skillfully encourage personal reflection in each pose, pranayama, and meditation helping students recognize that what is discovered on the mat can be used in everyday living.



Pranakriya Yoga Teacher Trainings involve 9 weekends, approximately 1 weekend per month.  Each weekend we dive deeply into the workings, the philosophy, and the history of the Hatha Yoga tradition.  Pranakriya Yoga is in the lineage of Swami Kripalu and founded by Yoganand Michael Carroll, a Master Yogi who trained with Swami Kripalu, Amrit Desai, and lived as a renunciant at the Kripalu Ashram in the early ‘80s.
