Teacher Training 300HR PRANA VINYASA FLOW TEACHER TRAINING

Welcome!

We are delighted to tell you more about our 200/300-hr Prana Vinyasa
Flow-inspired teacher- training program.

Prana Vinyasa Flow in Washington, DC is a style that merges the asanas of classical hatha yoga, the fluid motion of Indian classical dance and martial arts, the teachings of ayurveda, the precepts of Buddhist philosophy and the wisdom of many other influences. Now in its eighth cycle, Jess’ training is one of the longest-running and best-known advanced programs in Washington. Former participants are teaching at the majority of DC-area studios, as well as in many other places well beyond the District’s limits. The approach to learning is at once embodied, creative and synthesizing, and is especially suited to the self-motivated and emotionally mature practitioner who is interested in expanding progressively upon what he or she already knows. Above all, Jess and the other program staff and assistants (all of whom are program alum) aim to provide our trainees with a deep reservoir of understanding that can be applied to the vast spectrum of human experience.

Jessica Lazar

Our dynamic approach to the art of living and embodying yoga is supported by the 270 contact hours with our skilled faculty, and by independent-study work over the course of the program. Your study of Prana Vinyasa Flow will be both practical and contemplative, bringing you into the rhythm of your life as a householder and a teacher. We seek to guide practitioners toward
balance and integration: of the ancient roots and modern methodology of yoga with the teacher’s freedom to discover an evolutionary path of study and practice — with esteemed founder Shiva Rea ( ​www.shivarea.com​ ), Jess Lazar, and all other teachers.

Our program is the only 300-hr training in the DC metro  area that provides …

  • In-depth discussion and application of all aspects of the practice
  • Weekend intensives and access to senior teachers in our greater global collective
  • No additional travel or lodging expenses- this training is all-inclusive and based in Washington, DC
  • A unique interface with Prana Vinyasa Flow as a living yoga practice with living founder, Shiva Rea, and the constantly evolving and expanding canon of teachings

We are open to yoga students with at least six months of active study in asana-based yoga practices. If you have not completed a 200-hr but would like to participate in our training, please contact PranaFlowDC@gmail.com​ for more information (training may be completed for 200-hr credit, on a case-by-case basis)
