Pranayama Teacher Training 50 hours

The course is structured around 3 weekends held 4 weeks apart, allowing time for home practice as you integrate the training into everyday life. Commitment to practice is essential and is a requirement of the course. You can only teach what you know. The sessions include tea breaks and breakfast together. Community is part of yoga - breaks are when the group relaxes and relates, forming friendships and a support network.

Why is pranayama important?

Pranayama is fundamental to hatha yoga yet is often overlooked. Yoga without pranayama is incomplete. Asanas prepare the body for pranayama practices, which in turn are a pathway to meditation. Pranayamas balance and harmonise the flows of energy (prana) and calm the mind. The breath is directly related to the nervous system. This means your whole experience of life is influenced by your breathing patterns.

Pranayama needs to be learned systematically, there is no fast-track way. It's essential to gradually build up your capacity through regular practice. That's why this course is spread over 8 weeks including 3 weekends attending classes. 

 

You’ll learn the theory and practice of foundation breathing and pranayama practices, plus how to instruct as part of a hatha yoga class.
