"In 2011, I moved to San Diego specifically for this training after hearing incredible feedback about Gerhard and his training. I completed my Yoga Teacher Training at Prana Yoga Center in 2011. Since then, I have taken about 700 hours of YTT in various other studios. Every training after my 200 hour at Prana was disappointing because they lacked the depth and integrity that this training provided. I feel like I got more than my moneys worth by taking my training here, and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to train here. Because of Prana's in-depth training, I am now a full time yoga teacher. Thank you!!" more testimonials
