I wish I could stand on the roof tops and scream “Take Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training!” This training changed my life to say the least. It was incredible to grow along side some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.
And YOU, Asia: To have been in the presence of such a wonderful teacher, friend and woman. You are my inspiration. Thank you for just being so damn awesome! You have created gold with Pranalife and anyone who has the opportunity to be in your course is truly lucky! I feel confident and ready to take the tools I’ve gained and excel as a Yoga Teacher.

YTT is so powerful and important to me, I didn’t miss it even when it landed a day after my own wedding! #priorities
~ Jessi del Rosso, Pranalife Certified Instructor
I will never forget YTT. It has contributed to massive changes in my life. You bridged this gap between my regular life to something beyond that.
~ Kimmi Luu, Pranalife Certified Instructor
I’d checked out several different programs, and Pranalife Yoga’s teacher training just felt right. At first I worried I might have ‘bitten off more than I can chew’ but every weekend in class reignited my love of yoga and my passion to learn. My gut was right, and I have no regrets!
~ Dr. Natasha Zajc-Dalcourt, Pranalife Certified Instructor
With other trainings it’s such a commitment for not a lot of reward. Within a few months of graduating from Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training I’m on track to break even on my investment.

It might seem strange, given how covid-19 blew up our lives, but in many ways it’s never been a better time to be a yoga teacher. Worlds have opened up through this pandemic for people who teach movement, meditation, and mindfulness.
So many people are stuck sitting all day, cut off from others, and in need of a way to feel better mentally and physically that they can’t get by going to a gym or packed studio.
With Pranalife YTT you’ll get the best training AND great options for building your own, unique, self-led career.
Read Asia’s blog post on being a full-time teacher, including the scoop on pay, perks, and long-term plans.

The world of yoga is changing, and Pranalife Yoga has been leading that change for years. From challenging postures that provoke back pain/injury to introducing movements based on real-life demands rather than esoteric, extreme postures, Pranalife Yoga is rare for having deep experience with changing for the better.
And we’re still doing it. Not only will you learn how to teach great classes, but you’ll get to try out teaching online, or teaching something other than just classes. Explore your options with your peers in a safe environment that will help you build the career of YOUR dreams.
We don’t blindly follow a guru. We don’t dictate a small series of movements to a diversity of bodies. We give you tools to design your own practice and show you how to do that for others.
We don’t demand that you follow; we empower you to LEAD.
This training gives you the best advantage to thrive teaching what you love.
In the yoga market it can seem like you’ve only got two options: teach the same postures as everyone else in as many classes as a studio will give you for the rate they’re willing to pay you, or have the capital to start a studio and take on the job of Studio Owner (and likely Manager) as well as Yoga Teacher. Both can be great options, but they’re not the only ones.
With Pranalife Yoga Certification you can do something different: design classes that reflect you and fit the people who practice with you, and teach ANYWHERE – instead of being confined to one studio & style. Since 2008, Pranalife Yoga has been giving yoga instructors the tools and freedom to create their own path. Check out this post to find Pranalife teachers & studios all over KW.
No getting bored (you OR your clients) of the same series or encouraging repetitive stress injuries from only knowing (and being allowed to teach) a limited sequence of postures. Your classes, online content, workshops, private sessions, retreats and beyond will always be as fresh as you make them, evolving to include what you learn through experience, and becoming part of what YOU have to offer as a unique, empowered teacher.
Are you a good fit for this course? Here’s what you need to know:
You do not need a lot of experience in yoga. Your practice will evolve so much during the course, and you’ll have time to build a strong and realistic discipline. You should be familiar with basic yoga movements.
You will need to be in good enough health to move safely – including being on your hands/knees, and challenging your joints with bodyweight-bearing movements. If you can do a basic yoga practice that you feel good about, you’re ready.
You will also need to be in a good mental space. Yoga Teacher Training should never be considered a replacement for therapy. Healing, transformation, and empowerment are outcomes of doing this YTT, but it’s not a substitute for professional support if you’re struggling with mental health issues.
This training isn’t a good fit for you if you’re dogmatically dedicated to ONE way of doing yoga. You need to be excited about the opportunity to learn new approaches, consider the latest research from within and beyond yoga, and challenge what you think and believe.
You’ll have the opportunity to create a yoga practice and career tailored to YOU and what you want to create, which means this course is inherently creative. You’ll get lots of specific content on how to teach great classes. You’ll also need to be able to take the LEAD to take what you learn and make it truly yours. This training is not going to make you an out-of-the-box template teacher teaching the same thing everyone else around is teaching. Be ready to be well-supported, excited, and out of your comfort zone once in a while. That’s where the real growth and strength comes. 😉
Also, if you’re not interested in growing, investing in the work that leads to real change, or connecting with an awesome new group of people, this probably isn’t your stop.Create the change you're seeking
I do really feel Pranalife has superior training to what’s out there, now that I’ve talked to other teachers. You cover all aspects of yoga, not just “here are a few dozen postures and the lingo for those” and anything else you’re gonna drown. I can be thrown into any situation and feel competent to teach it.
~ Karen Suk-Patrick, Pranalife Certified Instructor
Working full-time, raising my boys and taking care of myself was overwhelming. I felt mediocre in all aspects of my life.
Asia gave me permission and a path to move into my freedom. This was something I needed more than I’d realized, and let me take my practice to an entirely different level. I became present instead of worrying about what was next on my list. I stopped comparing what I do with what I could do in the past, or what the person on the mat beside me or in my Instagram feeds could do. This came off my mat tenfold.
I’m a better parent, wife, friend, and a much stronger teacher.
~ Lindsay Egan, Pranalife Certified Instructor
Take that BIG step
Before I started the YTT program, I’d been small – not in the physical sense (I’m almost 6 feet) but in the social and emotional sense. I hate being the focus of attention. At work (and in life if I think about it) I avoid asking questions because I feel like I look stupid.
Today and every day since I first met Asia, this has been changing. I’ve embraced Asia’s mantra of “You are BIG”. If I’m feeling anxious about approaching someone or asking a question, I say to myself BE BIG and I push myself to do what I need to do.
Then I had a breakthrough moment: I was asked to attend an important meeting. I contributed, followed up with people who owed me work, and felt confident and intelligent. Junior to the room by at least 25 years and definitely the only female, I kicked ass.
Thank you Asia for helping me transform into my best self. If this kind of magic happens after only three weekends together, I am ecstatic to see where the next few months will go.
