You want to learn from dedicated teachers with years of experience. Our training programs are the best.
PRAJNA Advanced Studied Program
Thank you for your interest in the PRAJNA’s Advanced Studies Programs. Our school offers Yoga and Pilates Teacher Training Programs. Whether you choose our yoga training or dive into the Pilates training, our programs will help the practitioner develop a well-formed and mature practice, focusing not just on the physical aspects of yoga and Pilates but the body, breath, mind, and spirit connection. You may intend to simply deepen your understanding of the practices or you aspire to teach and share with others; our training will prepare you for your journey.
We consider the study of Pilates and yoga a science—continually evolving. There is a common saying in the yoga community, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” If you are drawn to this program, it is most likely because you are ready for the teachings.
Our Pilates program is based on the classic teachings of Joseph Pilates. PRAJNA provides you with a full training on the matwork and apparatus. The program is set up as three modules. The fundamentals, principles, and matwork is included in Module 1. For those wishing to continue on the Pilates’ journey, Module 2 covers anatomy and the apparatus including the reformer, cadillac, and chair. Module 3 is for those wishing to complete their full certification and includes the ladder barrel, pedi-pole, and other smaller props. Upon successful completion of the full program, graduates will be qualified for the option to take the National Pilates Certification Program exam and become a NCPT.
As a Pilates teacher for many years now, I have seen how this system can be utilized for all ages and fitness levels, from pre-teens who have injured their bodies during extracurricular activities, office workers, doctors, and mothers who have developed poor posture from daily life, middle-aged athletes who have lost their edge, and seniors citizens who can hardly walk. The list can go on and on. It is a great compliment to yoga as both systems focus on body, mind, and breath, while the Pilates equipment offers a way to train the physical body that are not often worked on the yoga mat.
Our Yoga Teacher Training is based on authentic yoga including the teachings from Universal Yoga® and other systems to provide a comprehensive program. There is a common saying in the yoga community, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” If you are drawn to this program, it is most likely because you are ready for the teaching. Our program will cover asanas, vinyasas, pranayama, bandhas, meditation, and more. We also host master teacher, Andrey Lappa. He is the founder of Universal Yoga® and is offers an advanced training on Internal Practices (meditation).
We are honored you are considering one of our programs. An amazing journey into the benefits you gain from regular practice and the transition it makes into everyday life awaits you. Our many years of practice and teaching experience will ensure you a rewarding adventure. We are looking forward to practicing with you.
