Our yoga programs are life-transforming and for everyone, whether you are interested in becoming a teacher or wanting to deepen your yoga practice and knowledge.
We all came into this training looking for more, for a better way to be. We found that we were not alone in this quest and we helped each other just a little along our journey. Our time in the physical classroom is over but our paths are forever changed because of each other and as we move forward on our journeys, we know we don’t have to do it alone….we have our yoga family.” KA

This Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Part-Time program is designed to help accommodate your busy schedule. It offers the possibility to really dive into the teachings: physically, mentally and spiritually while respecting your commitments to work, family, schooling and personal life.

This PranaShanti Teacher Training program is a total of 200+ hours including 180 contact hours and 35 personal hours so that you graduate a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). This format provides future teachers exposure to as much knowledge and hands-on practice teaching time as possible.

Our program provides you with a foundational background in yoga that draws on the Hatha and Vinyasa yoga traditions, as well as modern knowledge of bio-mechanics and movement, so that you can confidently teach holistic, all-levels classes in a clear, compassionate manner.  You will deepen your understanding of asana (postures), develop a functional understanding of yogic and Western anatomy, yoga philosophy and theory, Ayurveda, meditation, personal development and communication skills. The course requirements include a research presentation, a yoga class journal, and active participation in the classroom.
