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.

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training 300 Hour – Mind and Meditation
Your mind has a unique, energetic frequency that runs parallel to your individual place in history’s time-line. As a soul who decided to take human form, both dense and luminous in nature, you are bound to the subtle and radical changes in the earth’s rhythms as well. There is only one sanctuary from the chaotic changes we are now experiencing– your own mind.
 
Mind & Meditation is intended to illuminate the relationship between you and your mind. Through this powerful experience, you will explore how the mind works in relationship to yourself and others. You will begin to integrate fundamental concepts about the nature and dynamics of the mind into your life. Perhaps most important of all, you will deepen your meditative practice.
 
The type of relationship we create with our mind is essential to our ability to act effectively, to recognize our true nature and to align with our Divine Purpose. The technology presented in Mind & Meditation addresses the rapid shifts we are experiencing today, individually and as a collective.
