Pranayoga’s 200hr teacher training is a nationally recognized yoga teacher training program designed to teach yoga in a holistic sense. Dani(Vani), Linda and Julia, with their collective yoga experience of over 30 years, 20 years of teaching experience. We move beyond the basic 200 hour program as yoga therapists and ayurveda health educators, to delve into the philosophy and to support each individual in embodying their unique teaching style within the tradition of hatha yoga levels 1 and 2. Your personal practice will deepen, as well as embodiment of the postures through applied practice, hands on experience in the teacher labs, giving and receiving adjustments, and understanding alignment principles. The teaching of yogic limbs, lineage, and philosophy is a life long gift for living with greater ease and joy in real world relationships. The training is structured as a 25-week semester with classes meeting Tuesday evenings each week. In addition, two weekend seminars and 24 hours directed elective work through Pranayoga 200/500E-RYT teachers are required.
