with Lucas Hall
January 21- February 10, 2023
Our 22hr Pranayama and Meditation training is a deep dive into the subtle energy of the yoga tradition. Whether you are a yoga teacher, a curious meditator, or health professional wanting to incorporate breath and meditation practices into your work, this training might just be for you ;)
This program is intimate (only 12 students, min 6), it's detailed, systematic and highly experiential. It follows the following format; lecture, practice and integrate (how and when 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 Pranayama and Meditation training reflects that, drawing upon diverse philosophies and methodologies; Tantra (Sri Vidyā), Hatha Yoga, Buddhism, 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 pranayama and meditation, subtle energy and be equipped with the tools to create and implement a nurturing and effective experience for yourself and others.
Yoga/meditation experience preferred. There will be a little light asana classes incorporated in the training

A. That's great. Our 22-hour training is also ideal for those who want to dive deeper into the study of pranayama and meditation and to improve their practice.

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.
