Our 50hr Pranayama, Meditation & Yoga Nidra (PMYN) training is a deep dive into the subtle energy of the yoga tradition. Whether you are a yoga teacher, a curious yogi, or health professional wanting to incorporate breath and meditation practices into your work, this training might just be for you ;) Each weekend is dedicated to new topic and practice, each informing the next:
Weekend One: Pranayama
Weekend Two: Meditation
Weekend Three: Yoga Nidra
Final Session: Closing
This program is intimate (only 10 students, min 6), it's detailed, systematic and highly experiential. It follows the following format; lecture, practice and integrate (how to teach). NY Loves Yoga is not a one-style-fits-all yoga studio; we pride ourselves in offering various lineages of yoga, and our 50hr Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Nidra training reflects that. We will draw upon diverse methodologies; Tantra (Sri Vidyā), Hatha Yoga, Buddhism, Hinduism and modern science. The commonality that threads throughout this training: A nurturing and respect for all traditions, practices and beliefs.
Each person will receive one-on-one mentorship time with Lucas, and a track to teach a Karma-Love Community Class after graduation.
One thing is for sure, you will walk away with a deeper understanding and experience of the subtle energy and tools to create and implement a nurturing and effective experience for yourself and others. See FAQ's below.
Yoga experience required. There will be asana classes incorporated in the training

A. That's great. Our 50-hour training is also ideal for those who want to dive deeper into the study of pranayama, meditation and yoga nidra and to improve their practice. You can’t get these teachings from books alone. Go to the source and dive deep into the technical and philosophical knowledge from a teacher who is living it!

A. Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings in the US. More and more yoga studios across the country are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 500-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher.

Have you noticed we have 4.8 out of 5 stars on ClassPass with 26,397 reviews and counting.
