WHO WE ARE

Our Mission

Pranotthan Yoga Teacher Training helps you be the best yoga teacher you can be, for exactly who you are NOW. There are students waiting for every kind of teacher. Whether you wish to teach hot vigorous yoga flows that cause you to sweat or yoga to seniors in chairs, Pranotthan Yoga Teacher Training will help you. PYTT focuses on the teaching methodology underneath every form of yoga. In our training, you’ll learn way more than a simple script or prescribed class to follow. In PYTT you learn the fundamental building blocks, tools, and ancient roots for being a depth yoga teacher and practitioner, exploring and sharing with others what is most passionate to you.
