Testimonials

During Pranakriya YTT I learned how to teach poses, not just perform them.

The Pranakriya methodology instilled in me the confidence to lead classes that range from gentle to vigorous through the numerous practice teaching opportunities. Yet as much as I gained knowledge of the postures, I also discovered so much more about myself as a yoga practitioner on and off the mat. I changed both physically and spiritually, and will always be grateful for the connection to the Pranakriya lineage.

I feel fortunate to have discovered the Pranakriya 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

The program, rooted in tradition but applicable to modern Western practitioners, is well rounded, professional, and thorough.  Students significantly deepen their own practice while learning how to teach yoga, and the instructors are kind, wise, and accessible.  The training left me feeling well prepared to teach and eventually open my own studio.  It changed my life. You will gain lifelong friendships and personal growth beyond measure!
 
 -Kristen Mercado (Yoga Teacher and Owner of Solstice)

After completing the 200 hour teacher training program, I felt confident that I could walk into a class and lead students through a safe and supported practice.

Being able to practice teaching during the training was a wonderful way to begin to feel comfortable in the teacher role and it gave me the opportunity to observe different people and body types move through the postures.  We learned to teach three distinct types of classes, almost assuring that we would be prepared to lead several types of classes upon completion of the program.  Because of the thorough training, I was able to secure teaching jobs at local studios and put my skills to use immediately following graduation.  If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose this training.

I came to the Pranakriya 200 hour training with the intention of teaching yoga.

The Pranakriya teachers and community treated me with loving kindness and compassion. This community helped me to find parts of myself that I never knew existed – and an incredible light within myself that I had been unconsciously hiding for much of my life.
The training was extremely organized, and extremely thorough for potential teachers.  Not only did I leave feeling prepared to lead a class but I left feeling lighter in my soul. I continue to be grateful on a daily basis for the life I have as a yoga teacher – and grateful for my Pranakriya roots.

Pranakriya training under William Hufschmidt deepened my practice, my strength and endurance, challenged my abilities, while expanding my body, mind, and spirit.

Pranakriya training under William Hufschmidt deepened my practice, my strength and endurance, challenged my abilities, while expanding my body,mind, and spirit. The Pranakriya breath work has impacted not only my yoga practice, but also my work with clients energetically.  It has been transformational in developing discipline, growth,  and self-awareness.

When I decided to commit to YTT, I didn’t see myself teaching. I just wanted a deeper practice: what I got in return was so much more.

An awakening within, a renewed sense of belonging, a strong confidence to teach and a broad yet flexible training that I could apply anywhere and with various populations. What I know for sure is not all YTT’s are the same. I am glad that I studied with Pranakriya. As I’ve ventured out into the world to instruct those with sleep issues as well as military service members, veterans and their families, I know that I had one of the best yoga trainings around. It has definitely prepared me to work with specialized populations in a way that I didn’t see coming!

William and the Pranakriya tradition instilled in me a sense of awareness of the way I present myself to the world as a yoga teacher, and more importantly a human being. After completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training, I felt more than adequately prepared to begin my journey sharing the art of yoga. William ushered in me a sense of self-worth, empowerment, and the freedom to live my life whole-heartedly. William’s trainings are rooted in tradition and his passion for yoga shows through and through. ~Taylor Watts, SC
