Training & Certification

Our program consists of 300+ hours of coursework and practicum, exceeding the Yoga Alliance standards. Completion of this program will earn you your RYT-300 designation from the Yoga Alliance. This program is for students that have already completed a 200-hour basic yoga teacher training with Pranakriya or any other certified yoga school. Within this program you will complete:

  • 200+ hours of required core curriculum
  • 80+ hours of specialized electives

There is no application procedure nor registration fees to start our 300-hour program, and students do not need to take the courses in any specific order. After completing an approved 200-hour yoga teacher training, you may take the required courses as we rotate through them at any of our host studios. After finishing each course you will receive a letter of completion. When you have completed your coursework you may register with us as a Pranakriya Professional Level Yoga Teacher.

There is a $50 registration fee to review your letters and issue your certificate. With this certificate you may register with the Yoga Alliance as a 300-hour graduate of a Registered Yoga School. We encourage teachers to participate in our training courses in a way that suits each one’s interest, time and financial well-being. Due to the nature of the advanced courses, we recommend students take three to four programs per year; completing certification in 3-4 years. We believe this allows for the greatest integration of the program material, opportunity to deepen your own practice, put the learning into your teaching and have time for reflection/questions before your next course.

All 300-hour students must complete the following courses:

  • Anatomy for Yoga Practitioners & Teachers
  • Deepening the Asana Experience (take THREE of these Asana Courses – 20 hours each)
