Yoga Teacher’s Training 300 Hours – India 2015

“The 300-hour course with Prasad Rangnekar went beyond my expectations. The course itself helped me to go deeper in my own emotional and spiritual growth, which was the main reason I decided to participate. The teachings on physiology, exploring gross and subtle energy awareness in asanas, developing a consistent sadhana through the daily practices during the course, understanding how the mind, body, and energy body are intertwined, and deepening my understanding of yoga philosophy continues to guide me on the spiritual path daily.

My work as a yoga teacher has changed as I have gained confidence in what my intent is when I teach, as well as strengthened my knowledge and ability to meet my students where they are at and what they need. My work as a mental health therapist has also grown, as more and more people I work with are interested in learning yoga techniques to manage mood and stress. I have only gained more and more with each class, workshop and training I have had the pleasure of attending with Prasadji. If your intent is to deepen your yoga practice, incorporate it into daily lifestyle, and walk on the spiritual path, I highly recommend this course.”

“Training with Prasad was a truly transformative experience, beyond asana mechanics. Yes, the course definitely gave me the understanding and tools of functional anatomy, kinetics, alignment, guiding principles of safe and effective asana practice – all essentials to evolve into a good yoga teacher. In that respect, Prasad is a fantastic teacher, very knowledgeable, lucid and clear, and targeted in giving us the core knowledge we needed. However, the course is much more than that. Prasad worked with us to explore a deeper experience of yoga – of integrating the mind, breath and body, of aligning inner and outer worlds. He guided us in using our practice to examine, challenge and nurture not only our physical body but also inner selves – the mind, the emotions, our patterns of behaviors. We approached our practise from physical, experiential and intellectual perspectives. The lessons learnt are applicable in life situations for anyone, from yoga teacher to CEOs to homemakers. These learning allow us to work through our roles and demands more effectively, gracefully and with far less stress. As we went through our processes, Prasad was always there, compassionate yet firm, always listening but nudging us to find our own answers – never allowing for any dependence to form.

Going through his program has not only made me a better and more compassionate person, spouse, mother & daughter, but also a much more effective leader and manager, with greater clarity and impact. Prasad is that teacher who gives you the greatest gift of learning to be your own light! And that is the first real step in yoga.”

Yoga Teacher’s Training & Self Development Immersion in India, in December 2014 – Testimonial

“The YTT course meant the world to me. I am blessed to have had the honor to be a part of the Hatha Yoga Tradition taught by Prasad. I know now the importance and broad dimension of yoga, a medicine for the soul, a life journey of knowledge, wisdom and experience. I have learned and experienced the real importance of breathing, I have acquired awareness of my self- limiting believes, self-sabotage, fears and restless mind, but most importantly I have learned how to overcome my self- imposed limitations with patience, love and compassion. Life has definitely gained a new meaning for me and I was born again by receiving the blessings of the Hatha Yoga tradition along with my Sanskrit name, Sanjeevani – The giver of life. I am living now with purpose as a yoga teacher. With trust, resilience and devotion to stay in the path, transform myself and inspire others.”

When the opportunity to take the 200hr YTT with Prasad arose, I did not hesitate. I have always had deep questions about the world and my place within it and as I slowly began to practice Yoga, I craved a deeper understanding of it’s importance. Something deep within knew that this was my chance and I am beyond grateful for all that has followed. This course is truly the best thing I could imagine a person doing for themselves, whatever self doubt they may be experiencing. I was nervous and unsure leading up to it, however upon meeting Prasad and my amazing new Yoga family, everything started to click. With Prasad’s incredible source of knowledge and support, we were guided through the traditional practices and beliefs of Hatha Yoga. Such knowledge is truly a sacred gift that worked to uncover long held beliefs that had been holding me back on my journey and slowly worked to release them as I began to see and feel my true potential. Prasad blessed me with the tools and techniques needed to get out of my own way to became all I am meant to be. Becoming a Yoga teacher is about working to uncover this truth within yourself so that you may inspire and guide others to do the same. Life is not without obstacles and because of the gifts of this course, I am prepared to meet them, triumph and grow. Prasad is a true teacher who’s guidance and love do not stop when the diplomas are distributed. These are the most precious gifts. He is always there for all of his students no matter what, encouraging us to stay on this amazing path. Since the course, I am coming to discover everything I have ever felt was missing, seeing now that it was inside of me all along.

“I came across Prasad in a chance meeting and decided to take a leap of faith by signing up to his Yoga Teacher Training program in Mumbai. I have no doubt that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made and ever will make.

I took the course more out of a desire to build my own personal practice and to understand yoga and the asanas better. To my surprise, having completed the course, I not only enjoy a fulfilling self practice at home but I also feel confident and equipped to teach others. That is entirely thanks to Prasad and his own clarity when he teaches.

Prasad has the unique ability to explain complex ideas and yoga philosophies in a clear and meaningful way, so that you are able to apply and use them in your daily life. He challenges you constantly but within a very loving and supportive framework. He guided me lovingly and expertly through some of my own fears and difficulties on the journey of self-transformation and continues to do so. He is a true guru.

Prasad is an extraordinary human being. His sincerity and dedication to Hatha Yoga shine like a beacon, illuminating all those around him lucky enough to learn from him. His teachings, his words, his kindness, his calm – all have had an eternal impact on my life and I will be forever grateful to Prasad.

I wholeheartedly encourage anybody who has the opportunity to learn from this sincere and inspiring teacher to do so. Your life will be transformed for good.”

Yogaprasad Teachers Training Course in Lithuania 2013 – Testimonials

“This was my first time I have got acquainted with yoga in Yoga Prasad Teachers Training and Self Development Immersion training in Lithuania in 2013. And I must admit the training has changed my life! I have learned to feel and accept my body. I have realized the importance of breathing, connection between emotions and experiences. Now yoga helps me to get out of the daily routine, stop and enjoy the moment, leave the results of my actions for the Universe.

And most of all – I have started to live conscious life! Spiritual path is long journey and I am very happy I have the Teacher now. I am starting to teach yoga classes in October. I feel ready and confident!

Thank You Prasad Rangnekar!

– Evelina Rimkiene (Lithuania)

I met Prasad Rangnekar a little over a year ago and that was my very first encounter with yoga. Immediately I felt that yoga was gonna take me ‘somewhere’. Now I know for sure that step-by-step it is taking me towards my true Self. So this feeling, or rather the calling of my Soul, was so strong that seven months later it brought me to India to do the YTT and Self-Development course. Twenty-one days spent under the guidance and protective care of my Teacher was the time of deep cleansing and inner awakening for me. It was like I was born anew there, which I started realizing only on going back into the ‘real world’.

When I got the chance to take part in the YTT course in my own country I grasped it without hesitation. It is a blessing to study soul wisdom with such a caring, understanding and inspiring Teacher as Prasad.

The YTT Lithuania course was organized in two modules with just enough time in-between for the wisdom to sink in and the deeper knowing and awareness of myself to experience. Our small group was working under the motto “Transform Yourself, Inspire Others”, therefore, besides covering a wide range of topics (in theory and practice) from asana, human anatomy, breath to the workings of the mind, yoga philosophy to meditation, special attention was given to our self-exploration, transformation and growth.

It was an intensive and challenging course; not so much study-wise but self-work-wise. Just as I was certain that I was done with some of my deep issues they resurfaced again with full force. This time I didn’t run away as I had been used to. Instead, with my Teacher’s support I looked honestly into my conditioned mind, my deep-set negative beliefs, listened to my heart as much as I could and came out of it with more self-acceptance.

My journey inwards that has just begun made me experience my body, meet and sit with myself, explore my mind and gradually accept myself as well as start loving myself.
As I look back I am stunned by my self-imposed limitations. Whose life was I living for so long? Did I ever live? Freely? I was completely controlled by my deeper negative mind not even realizing that. My whole life was about my looks and my body and other peoples’ opinions. I was feeling miserable, worthless, not deserving and blaming it all on my appearance. Now I am looking inside more and, thanks to Prasad’s teachings I no longer confuse how I look or what I seem to be with who I truly am. I know the Truth and the difference between Truth and reality. I am Love Freedom and Bliss just like each of us and I am on my way to realize this ultimate Truth.

I am working on my deep-rooted negative beliefs, trying to transform them and set myself free. Whenever I fall, which I do, I keep reminding myself that I am a beautiful, loving and free being. I try hard to no longer identify myself with my body, face or my mind as I know that I am so much more. My body and my mind are just the tools to experience my being and realize my true potential. And as such I have to take good care of them. Throughout the course I noticed that I am accepting and respecting my body more and feeling very good inside it (with the face it’s a bit more problematic, though…). Now I walk tall and proud and look people in the eye, which was unimaginable a year ago. I am slowly falling in love with myself and starting to live my heart’s dream.

After the ground-shaking lecture on the law of karma, I no longer question why did it happen to me? or blame life events or the other. I am unburdening little by little, accepting all of my past experiences, letting them go and feeling grateful for them. I think I would be a completely different person had I not lived through them. All of my life events and non-events have taken me on the spiritual path and I look at them as a blessing now. Nothing is accidental and everything that comes my way is for my own learning and growth.

All of that has made my life so much simpler. There is more ease and peace and harmony in my life, more openness and awareness. I am more conscious of myself, my thoughts, self-talk, words, choices, actions, self-responsibility and the world. I am more in the here and now, allowing experiences to come and go as they do. There is so much joy in living in the present moment as there is nothing to worry about or be afraid of in the present.

I am also a certified yoga teacher now. And though I was not planning to start teaching immediately life obviously has its own ways… It just happened that I started giving classes to a small group. And it feels so right for me to introduce my girls to yoga, to share the knowledge that I have, to give them support and love.

This whole journey has been so liberating and empowering. There are no words to express my gratitude to Prasad for showing me the Path and for shining his Light on it and for continuously and tirelessly guiding me closer to the Love Freedom and Bliss that I am. At the moment I am where I am on the Path and I am determined to walk it with dedication, patience and trust until one day I feel totally satisfied in the Self by the Self. This journey is everything.
I would strongly recommend this course for anyone willing to undergo self-transformation with Prasad’s help, love and compassion all the way through, wishing to rediscover harmony and peace within, find their own freedom and spread their Love and Light around.

Yogaprasad Teachers Training Course Hong Kong January to April 2013 – Testimonials

“If someone had told this unfit, sedentary, 67-year-old granny a year ago that she’d be ecstatic about yoga, she’d have told them they were delusional. Now, here I am, halfway through the eight-month Yogaprasad Yoga Teacher Training and Self-development Immersion program in Hong Kong, and realising that taking this giant leap of faith was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Yogaprasad YTT reaches far deeper than simple asana training. It is a mind-expanding, heart-opening, soul-awakening path to one’s true self. You can learn asanas from a book or even a YouTube video. It’s a very rare soul who can share the ancient wisdom of true yoga, in all its aspects, with unconditional love, compassion and deep understanding.

Prasad is down-to-earth, gentle, extremely knowledgeable and shares his wisdom in a way that informs, supports and nurtures his students’ learning and development in body, mind and spirit. Our class group of 16 is a family who encourage and deeply care about each other. We also have loads of fun! If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to study with Prasad, count your blessings and jump into the deep ocean of wisdom he will so willingly share with you. He will change your life; he has certainly changed mine in so many beautiful ways.

Thank you, Prasad, with deep love and gratitude.”

– Kate O’Hara (Hong Kong)

Ten years ago, I never thought of yoga was for me, because yoga was equal to asana in my perception. My body was very stiff, so my first experience in a yoga class was frustration. All the asana that the teacher taught was so difficult for me, and you found that others could do it so well. I have joined a few class and quitted afterwards, with the impression that yoga was only for those flexible body.

As a physiotherapist, many of my fellow workers always had an impression that yoga was not suitable for everybody and it’s quite easy to make people hurt. Many of us have treated clients that got hurt while doing yoga. Besides, if you search through internet and reading those asana books, you always find those yogis doing an advanced pose that seems impossible for normal human beings.

However, life will always take you where you have to go and break your own limiting belief and perception. In 2006, because of depression and unsatisfaction in life, I started doing meditation in a yoga centre in Hong Kong. I tried some yoga class with little commitment. And I met Prasad and joined his workshop on that year. Starting from 2006, I joined his workshop every year. Although I didn’t feel connected to yoga, I came back again and again to his workshop. And I also started my spiritual search in different area.

After severe sciatica incident on 2010, I started reflecting my life deeply and began to connect back with my body. Starting from improvisation dancing in 2011, I slowly came back to yoga and joined yoga course in a large yoga centre in 2012. Although all the asana were still challenging for me, my condition improved day by day and I was more willing to stay on the mat. While doing yoga in a large commercial yoga centre, it’s easy for you to forget what yoga really is, and you start pursuing asana after asana. The physical achievement seems to be utmost important, and everyone forget what the true essence of yoga is.

While I started joining the Yoga Teachers Training and Self Development Immersion with Prasad, I found a new meaning and understanding of yoga. Yoga is not only asana and pranayama, the whole background, philosophy and the true essence of yoga I could learn it here. Yoga is not just an exercise that can make you physically fit and strong. But it is also a spiritual practice that can help you to reach the truth. Too much emphasis on physical yoga makes people forget the most valuable part of yoga, and this is also the reason why people is easy to get hurt in yoga class. Without self-awareness and acceptance of own limitations, people became too aggressive in the yoga practice and forced their body to do something hard.

Modern life is stressful and fast pace, our body is already under great pressure. But yoga needs patience and time to develop our own self, both physically or spiritually. Let us start our journey from self love and self-understanding through yoga. Yoga is not another type of gymnastics that you have to do put your foot on the head. Yoga is a way of self understanding and self development, for which you finally know the truth or God.

Don’t limit your perception of yoga.
Don’t limit yourself in yoga practice. Asana is not all in yoga.
Go deeper, dig deeper.
You deserve better than you think.
Don’t compromise yourself on the superficial things.
Let go deep in yoga, let go deep in your life…
By joining this YTT course, you are on the way…

YTT India 2013

Yoga Teachers Training

The second Yoga Prasad Teachers Training and Self Development Immersion (Yoga Alliance approved 220+ hours) took place in the mystical blue mountains of south India in a small village by the name Connoor. For 21 days the12 participants from different countries lived amicably to flower themselves through the wisdom of traditional Hatha yoga. The knowledge imparted in the course was on the lines of traditional wisdom of Hatha yoga and therefore it was wholistic in nature.

Yogaprasad Teachers Training Course 2013 – Testimonials

“During these 3 weeks, we dived into the depth of yoga, exploring and experiencing ourselves what Prasadji taught us, with love, patience, devotion and an extraordinary sense of adventure. More than never, yoga became « effortless & joyful. Probably the 3 most intense weeks of my life… Such a blessing.”

– Vanessa Uyttenhove (Belgium)

There are no words that can describe the experience of 3 weeks in the Indian mountains with Prasad Rangnekar’s YTT and Self Development 200 course. As already practicing teacher I could of course put my knowledge and practice in bigger picture and have a clear view on yoga science and the role of the teacher in today chaotic world of yoga styles and way of teaching. Asana practice was designed to each of our small group accordingly to our own needs and the theory of anatomy, yoga philosophy, different breathing techniques, mantras, japas were covered in practical way. However I was deeply touched by the energy of the group, deep commitment and clarity that was rising each day with more fire. The extra focus on our own development and understanding of ourselves in order to come in touch with our own teaching style and practicality of yoga not only on the mat, but in our everyday life, made of us the true 24h yogis. The 3 weeks were demanding and uplifting, but the true miracle happened once I was back home. As I was worked on myself with honesty and sincerity, my little microcosm started to change too and I can affirm that all my family and students, friends are still benefiting from Prasad’s teaching and my learning. Prasad was and is the permanent inspiration and support for all of us and I am recommending this course to everybody who wants to see changes in this world.
Don’t limit your perception of yoga.
Don’t limit yourself in yoga practice. Asana is not all in yoga.
Go deeper, dig deeper.
You deserve better than you think.
Don’t compromise yourself on the superficial things.
Let go deep in yoga, let go deep in your life…
By joining this YTT course, you are on the way…
