50 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Pranayama Teacher Training

50 Hour Pranayama Teacher Training in Rishikesh India is designed for people who want to concentrate deeper on breathing and meditative aspect of yoga. According to ancient scriptures yoga considered not only as asana practice but a union between body and mind. When we say in India “we are practicing yoga” we suppose to do all  – asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation.

After completion of the course Student can get Certificate of Teacher of Pranayama of Yoga Alliance USA in form of continuing education after minimum 200 hour of Yoga TTC.

Pranayama can not be separated from Asana or Meditation or mantra, why? Because the purpose of pranayama as  yoga itself – is getting bliss or liberation for the mind. Normalisation of breath, increasing  the time of  spontaneous retention and at least entering in meditative state – that is a goal of Pranayama. “Long breath – long life, short breath – short life”, – developing correct breath not only calms mind but also helps to cure some common diseases. We use pranayama as a tool during asana, meditation, mantra.   Because people are different, everyone can find his suitable tool how to enter in deeper state of meditation. Our classes made by the way that you can try all main tools of yoga and master those practices that leads in your case in deeper state of concentration.
