Tantra Vinyasa YTT

Beginning September 2019, Pramana will host a 200 hour Tantra Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training for yogis seeking to advance knowledge & connection. This 200 hour course provides a strong foundation for Yoga students interested in deepening their personal practice, cultivating their guidance skills, refining their energetic awareness and immersing themselves in self study with a small community of like-minded individuals. 

This course is offered by Yoga Alliance eRYT credentialed individuals who also have formal education rooted in biomechanics, physiology, education and anatomy, and extensive study of energetics and yogic philosophy. The intention of this curriculum is to not only prepare students for teaching Yoga, but also to strengthen the connection with one’s own body and foster an ongoing commitment to purpose driven living & teaching.
