Yoga programs at PranaShanti are life-transforming and for everyone, whether you are interested in becoming a teacher or wanting to deepen your yoga practice and knowledge.
Our programs are designed to help accommodate your busy schedule. Our format allows for you to really dive into the teachings: physically, mentally and spiritually while respecting your commitments to work, family, schooling and personal life.
PranaShanti has been offering Yoga Teacher Training programs since 2008. We have offered over 35 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Programs in the Hatha and Kundalini Yoga traditions.
Our 200-hour programs provides a solid foundational background in yoga so that you can confidently teach holistic, all-levels classes in a clear and compassionate manner. You will deepen your experience of postures and meditation, expand your understanding of yogic and western anatomy, yoga philosophy, and Ayurveda, and you will refine your communication and listening skills all while being part of a supportive community that fosters inquiry, creativity and lifelong learning.
Our 300-hour programs allow for further personal transformation and a deepening of practice and knowledge.
We believe yoga is for everyone and teaching opportunities happen everywhere – on and off the mat. PranaShanti graduates take their yoga studies into all avenues of teaching whether on the mat in a yoga studio room, to the workplace, to schools or sharing one-on-one with a friend or family member.
Our Yoga School and Yoga Teacher Training programs are approved by Yoga Alliance and we are a certified educational institution by Employment and Social Development Canada and can therefore issue Tuition Tax Receipts for qualified programs.

The 21 Stages of Meditation
The 21 Stages of Meditation is a Journey to the Self along the meditative path to realization. Meditation is both a skill and an experience. It has stages, just as a flower grows from seed to sprout to leaves to bloom.
The Stages of Meditation’ are grouped into three ‘journeys’. They are: Experience & Crystallize the Self, Express and Distill the Self and Transcend and Sublimate the Self. Each journey lasts one weekend. Each weekend takes you through seven stages of deep meditation. Each stage systematically confronts your mind’s patterns and limitations, awakens a part of you and develops new skills to clear your way towards realization.
This course is for anyone who wants to enhance the joy of their meditation experience. Meditators from all traditions are invited! You’ll clear your mind, sharpen your consciousness and strengthen your nervous system. So, mark your calendar and be sure to join us!
