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.
