    2019 Yoga Teacher Training

    Instructor: Vladimir Tchakarov
    E-RYT500,  Pranakriya Program Director

    Pranakriya Yoga Teacher Trainings involve 9 weekends, approximately 1 weekend per month. Each weekend we dive deeply into the asanas, 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.
    The program includes:
    • 9 weekends, 6-9 months learning methodologies
    • 24 postures - w/ modifications and variations
    • 5 beginning level pranayamas
    • 7 “Practice Teach” opportunities
    • 5 different types of class
    • 1 amazing experience - personal discovery & growth

    What is Pranakriya?

    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.

    Our Program Directors are passionate about their yoga practice and dedicated to sharing their love and respect of yoga with their students.  Our graduates come away with a deep understanding of the teachings of yoga and are prepared to teach a variety of classes in a variety of settings, including yoga studios and gyms.
