The cornerstone of the ParaYoga curriculum is the 300-hour ParaYoga Master Training (PYMT) Program. Its unique, systematic, experience-based curriculum leads you to Yoga’s true potential as one of the most comprehensive, life-affirming spiritual traditions ever created.
ParaYoga is a living link to the ancient traditions of yoga and tantra. Our mission is to serve these teachings by continuing to be a leading resource for the transmission of the wisdom, power, and capacity that positively affect all aspects of modern life. Our unique approach is to emphasize authoritative knowledge and accessibility so that students and teachers of all levels––and society as a whole––are uplifted by yoga and tantra’s time-tested practices, leading to ultimate fulfillment and freedom. And it all starts with the ParaYoga Master Trainings.
Students wanting to deepen their personal practice, engage in the in-depth study of ancient wisdom, or simply for the purpose of self-development may participate in ParaYoga Master Trainings. Moving through the program takes most students a minimum of 2-3 years to complete; many take longer, choosing to experience the PYMT as a journey of transformation rather than a quick route to a certificate. Over the course of the program, you will assimilate the teachings and begin to gain true depth of skill and self-mastery, both as a teacher and as a practitioner.
While the ParaYoga Master Trainings are designed to be taken in the order in which they are listed below, it is also possible to take them in the order that works best for you and your schedule. The only PYMTs with firm prerequisites include the final two, Kundalini and Guru Parampara.
Successful completion of at least the first eight of the ParaYoga Master Trainings culminates in a 300-hour Yoga Alliance certification, which, when combined with an existing 200-hour YA certification, credentials you at the YA 500-hour level. The most popular way to get started with ParaYoga is with our Online Trainings, which include Vinyasa Krama, Tantra Shakti, Secrets of the Sutras, and Prana Shakti.
