Advanced registration is required in our Yoga Trainings and Workshops — don’t delay!
Please register by 2 weeks of the program start date as courses without minimum registrations will be canceled. Courses offer early discounts that you won’t want to miss so register at least 4 weeks before.
Listed below are our current offerings in order of date offered.
Designations for registration are indicated for each. Those marked “Open to All” may be attended by anyone in the community for personal growth. If PYTT is indicated, a 200-hour certification is required for registration and the course can be applied toward advanced training hours or as continuing education hours. Requests are considered for those not meeting the certification requirement. If APD is indicated, IAYT has approved the course for Yoga Therapists earning continuing education.
Due to the value that in-person training offers, often we require in-person attendance. Yoga is about relationships and PranaYoga would prefer every class be taught in person.  Online and hybrid classes have become a norm.  Our school offerings include:

  • The majority of our courses require in-person attendance.
  • Selected courses and trainings may be offered with a mixed in-person/hybrid schedule. 
  • Selected didactic courses may be offered with a full hybrid option.

Check each course for its teaching format.
