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.
