Pranaverdana 200-Hour Yoga Teacher
Next session dates are posted below.
Pranverdana 200 hour YTT is an intimate program limited to 12 students with Dawn Schroeder as the Lead Trainer. It consists of 10 weekends over a 7 month period. This training covers Hatha, Vinyasa and Kundalini styles of yoga and Meditation
(all of which Dawn is Certified in) and is recognized by Yoga Alliance.
The underlying theme of this YTT is the circular, continuous flow of Nature and Life and how Yoga is our platform to better understand ourselves and our purpose in relation to the Oneness of all things. The Pranaverdana YTT is about vibrant living, learning and sharing through the wisdom of Yoga. The program is “circular” in nature, meaning topics are introduced while instructing within one category, then revisited and expanded on in it’s own category and other categories. This allows students to build their understanding of yoga through repetition and different perspectives. For example - during Tadasana (mountain pose) instruction, the pose is taught and the student experiences it physically. In a concise, introductory way (effective communication), anatomy of the Spine and the Chakra system is introduced. This allows for better understanding when the anatomy category and chakra category are taught in detail.
The Pranaverdana YTT is an experiential, participatory, fluid, and dynamic learning environment for those wishing to teach yoga and those wanting to deepen their own practice of living yoga
The Pranaverdana syllabus meets all the standards set by the Yoga Alliance which are: 100 hours of Techniques, Training & Practice, 25 hours of Teaching Methodology, 20 hours of Anatomy & Physiology, 30 hours of Yoga Philosophy, Life Style & Ethics, and 10 hours of Practicum.
Students establish and maintain a daily spiritual practice (Sadhana) that is explorative in nature. It is not excessive or rigid, but creates awareness of what the student resonates with and how Sadhana sets a foundation for holding the space of a Teacher.
