Integrative Flow 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Yogic philosophy is rooted in the point of view that living a life of spiritual fulfillment is accessible to everyone. Asana, as practiced generally in yoga studios, is just one dimension of a much larger complex system. Integrative Flow Yoga 200hr TT (IFYTT) is a vinyasa training centered around what is missing from the studio experience; the broader view of yoga as a guidebook for personal development. You will learn how to skillfully apply yoga philosophy, and latest research in physiology, to the asana practice. The artful combination of philosophy and science is what can potentially yield authentic healing results.

This training is designed with working professionals in mind; we will meet one weekend per month. Although the fitness yoga that facilitates people's “workout” is worthwhile and beneficial; it is not necessarily the same as the yoga therapy that facilitates a person’s ability to heal physical and emotional trauma from injury, illness or chronic pain. In this training, you will learn the difference. The style of practice in IFYTT will meet the needs to lead Slow Flow for beginners & All Levels, Gentle, Private instruction, and will also provide an introduction to therapeutic applications yoga.

Pranakriya Yoga is one of the most solidly grounded, transformational and logically structured yoga teacher trainings in the country. Our programs train practitioners who have a love for yoga born out of practice and experience. Our goal is to skillfully encourage personal reflection regarding physical, mental and emotional aspects inherent in each pose, pranayama and meditation, helping students recognize that what is discovered on the mat can be used in everyday living.

Our program is steeped in the Tantric Hatha Yoga Philosophy but is also created from adult learning models. We thread together asana, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, relaxation, observation and hands-on assisting as well as reading and working with groups and individuals.

Our upcoming trainings include:
