OUR HISTORY

Tias began teaching the content for a foundational yoga training in 1998, shortly after his second trip to India to study yoga. A Buddhist yogi, he brings his wisdom of anatomy, the subtle body and insight meditation to the yoga practice. His degree in English inspires him to teach yoga through poetic and descriptive language.

Surya brings to the mat a 30-year background in nutrition, a background in therapeutic yoga in the Iyengar method and a practice of Qigong and the Chinese Five Element Theory. Surya lived in India and Nepal for three years studying yoga.

While there are many trainings available today, The Path of Practice is taught by Tias and Surya. We are a husband and wife team, married for 20 years, parents, householders, leaders of a world-wide community with 55 years of collective experience.

STAYING CURRENT

At this time in history we face immense challenges. In light of an international health crisis, social injustice and political instability and the move toward on-line learning, we have updated our foundational yoga teacher training program to meet the needs of the day.

 Right from the get-go, this course of study will take you on a remarkable journey. You will discover new landscapes within the body-mind connection, leading to a fountain of knowledge that can be shared in the teaching context. Each week will deepen your personal practice as you gain insight into the beauty, depth and splendor of the yoga tradition. Our approach is classical, yet multidimensional. We see the body-mind through a contemporary lens and bring mindfulness and meditative flow to all we do. We study the fascia of the body, the vitality of the bones, sensory awareness and the flow of prana. In the midst of great division and discrimination in the world today, our mission is to build integrity, honesty and wakefulness for a more compassionate world.

​The Path of Practice plants the seeds for becoming a yoga teacher, should it be your calling to become a yoga guide. Whether you teach or not, this is a path toward embodied wisdom. For those who wish to teach, we prepare you to teach both on-line and in person classes. Rather than a prescription for how to teach a given system of yoga, we invite you to cultivate a language of yoga that articulates the body in asana and pranayama and incorporates the study of poetry, sutras, myths and chanting. It is a journey that leads right to the heart of being.

LEARNING TO TEACH

THE PERKS TO TRAINING ONLINE

Busy? You will have time to go at your own pace. Can’t make the Live Class?  Then you can catch the recording. We have consolidated 25 years of teaching into a program format that you can work through at your own pace. Plus you can return to the content for years to come to refresh your memory and recharge your practice and teaching.

OUR KEY INGREDIENTS

Mindfulness and Meditation

All of our practice is rooted in mindful, loving presence. In the Path of Practice, you will come away with an established daily meditation and a steady practice to help you live fearlessly in the world with an open heart.

 

Yoga Postures and Somatic Awareness

You will learn not only classical yoga postures but through our unique, highly sought after  SATYA program (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga) develop skillful connection between body and mind. 

 

Anatomy and Alignment Principles

We specialize in living anatomy, that is how to align your bones, balance your fascial and increase  the flow of prana through your circulatory system.

 

Subtle Body Training

Subtle body awareness connects us to the chakras, the flow of breath and the exquisite movement to the pulse of life within.

 

Social Justice

Develop a language to speak out on behalf of all beings, to live with compassionate presence in your community and to be a voice for positive change in the world.

“Prajna Yoga presents an exciting lens to gaze through when looking at yoga and it’s many offerings. This path is not one to walk a short time on, but rather an ever-evolving lifelong journey in which one is guided deeper into the subtle body. The connection that you discover to yourself through Tias and Surya’s teachings ultimately leads you to discover your global and intimate connection to all.”
