20 hr Pranayama Teacher Training

Join our 3 day pranayama teacher training with International teacher Gaurav Malik from Ashtak Yoga School in India. We will dive into the depths of the breath where you will immerse yourself in topics relating to Prana and types of prana, nadis, bandhas, the pranayama systems, guidelines and precautions, pre-pranayama breathing and pranayama techniques.

Learn more about these ancient yogic practices and terms and walk away knowing how to not only practice these techniques for yourself, but how to teach them to your students as well.

That being said you don’t have to be a teacher to do this training! It is incredible if you just wish to learn more and deepen your personal practice.

This is a Yoga Alliance Certified Training that counts towards 20 hrs of continued education
