200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

The Circular, Continuous Flow of Nature and Life

2020-2021 YTT Dates Coming Soon

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 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.
