200-hr Yoga Teacher Training


200 hour Yoga Teacher Training

Become a 200-hour Certified Yoga Teacher! Learn how to structure a safe and relaxing class, engage with your students and develop a business you can take with you anywhere!

We are thrilled to be able to offer our 200 hour RYT Yoga Teacher Training program through Pranakriya Yoga.  Pranakriya is one of the most highly respected Yoga Teacher Training schools in the country. It’s a deep program that is personally transformative as you experience this remarkable path of Tantric Hatha Yoga developed by Yoganand Michael Carroll.

Graduates of the 200 hour can go on to complete their 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training here at Main Street Yoga (formerly called ‘500 hour’). If you are local please come to the studio for some Pranakriya style classes and talk with our teachers about their experience.  If you are from out of town we would love to have you visit sometime.

Let me know and we can schedule a talk together. Review the application HERE.   Please know that our teacher must plan years in advance to offer these intensive programs.  If you are on the fence don’t hesitate to call with your questions and concerns.  Please read requirements and deadlines carefully. The Pranakriya Yoga 200 hr. Teacher Training program is for yoga practitioners who have a love for yoga born out of practice. We help these practitioners develop the skills needed to share yoga with students as professional teachers.

Pranakriya Yoga is an approach to Hatha Yoga based on the Tantric teachings of Swami Kripalu, an ascetic monk who practiced yoga ten hours each day for over 30 years. Through his practices he gained a thorough understanding of all aspects of yoga. His teachings have been adapted for western students as Kripalu Yoga, developed by Amrit Desai; and as Pranakriya Yoga, developed by Yoganand Michael Carroll. The training takes place one weekend per month for 9 months (subject to change depending on time of year). Pranakriya Yoga is founded on the principle that all yoga practices were originally meant to do the following:

  • Cultivate inner awareness and sensitivity
  • Raise energy
  • Strengthen the body/mind container
  • Dissolve the sense of self into universal consciousness

When asana and pranayama are practiced with these intentions they become powerful tools for self-transformation.
