Upon completion of the teacher training program
· Your personal practice of yoga will have deepened.
· You will be qualified to register with the yoga alliance at the 200hr level.
. You will understand the philosophy and wisdom of yogic study that many programs skip over
· You will have the ability to confidently stand up in front of students and hold a safe, meaningful, and beneficial hatha 1 and All-Levels yoga class. Although foundational programs are more about deepening our own practice and relationship to ourselves, each other, and the world, it has been a launching pad for over 95% of our graduates to begin teaching yoga, and others have evolved into yoga studio owners, workshop leaders, and assisting our teacher trainings. This foundational knowledge runs deeper than the physical practice of yoga and can be taken into all aspects of living.

PYTT Faculty and Mentors
Drawn to heated yoga classes because of the fun, upbeat environment Julia was surprised to find that the physical yoga practice helped her find a deeper connection to herself and to others. She developed her personal practice and began her teaching journey by enrolling in the 200 Hour Foundations teacher training program with Vani at Pranayoga in 2012.
As admissions director of Pranayoga Institute of Yoga and Health, Julia helps students determine which teaching path is best for them. She is also a teacher trainer for the Pranayoga Institute’s 200 Hour Foundations teacher training and a teaching assistant for the Sattva Vinyasa 300 hour teacher training program.
Jenny Sevika Young E-RYT500, IAYT, YACEP, LMT
Jenny started yoga for her daughter in 2010 but stayed for herself. This is when powerful healing began to transform her body, mind, and spirit, not necessarily in that order. Through a regular asana and sitting practice, studying with phenomenal teachers and soaking in the love of the beautiful yoga community, she has begun to discover a quieter mind. She became RYT 200 certified through Prana School of Yoga and Health in 2012 as well as Thai Massage from Thai Body Work in 2012. She became ERYT 500 certified in 2015, and a Certified International Yoga Therapist in 2017. As a teacher, she sees each student as whole. She strives to create a supportive environment in which each student can safely experiment in uncovering the beauty and joy that reside within the heart of each of us. This support can include traditional yoga therapy, massage therapy, and a synergistic blend of the two. She is a perpetual student and is furthering her yogic and massage studies on the pelvic floor and myofascial release.
