"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 and 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
