200 Hour Basic Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga at Simply Well partners with Pranakriya to offer you a reputable 200 Hour Teacher Training. Pranakriya Yoga is one of the most solidly grounded, transformational and logically structured yoga teacher trainings in the country. Our program trains 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 Directors are compassionate and reassuring, asking teachers in training to play with the edges of their comfort zone so they can feel fully alive. Once they discover this aliveness, they in turn can share it with others.


Our program is steeped in the Tantric Hatha Yoga Philosophy but 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.

The training is taught in nine, intensive weekends and class size is limited to 20 students. This format supports students having time to integrate the material, complete homework and prepare for assigned practice-teach sessions.

In the first half of the program, students will learn effective methodologies for teaching postures, pranayamas and centerings. Students will also learn about the history and philosophy of the Tantra Hatha Yoga tradition.

In the second half of the program, students will learn to design and lead three kinds of classes: a vinyasa workout class, a meditative posture class, and a gentle stretch class. Our graduates have a deep understanding of the teachings of yoga and will be prepared to teach in a variety of settings including yoga studios and gyms.
