"An excellent yoga teaching program! The teachers all put 100% into the program and truly cared about the success of their students. This program has a very comprehensive anatomy, philosophy, and teacher preparation program. I was able to come out of the program ready and confident to teach." Melanie S

All of these provided me with the tools I need to start my teaching. The teachers were very good and thorough in their training." Linda M

"Prana's Joy and Service is a completely well-rounded school. The small class size allows a real bond to develop between those in the program and promoted a very safe and trusting environment. Kathleen, Holly and Rowan are so completely invested in making sure that the students are getting a great and unparalleled education." Angela M
