Ancient Yoga for the Modern Mystic

A profound journey designed to guide you through the ancient wisdom of yoga and Ayurveda in an immersive online certification program & mentorship.

In my experience as a yoga practitioner and professional, I have found that many yoga programs have lost touch with the origins of yoga, often omitting a vast majority of yoga culture.

This is why I have created

"Ancient Yoga for the Modern Mystic", a return to the roots of yoga.

Ayurveda is considered to be the oldest healing science. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life”. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life.

Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance in body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own unique constitution.

What our Students Say

"Prajna, I wanted to let you know how incredibly grateful I am for you and all the things you have done for me and my family. I am honored that you are my teacher. Thank you!"


Y.T.T. Graduate 2020

"It blows my mind how generous and supportive you have been to me. It is just so beautiful that you are so kind and it gives me hope because so many people in the world are not. It makes me feel very loved. Thank you for your patience and your grace and for the example you set as a mother to your girls, it is inspiring."


Y.T.T. Graduate 2023

"My yoga teacher training with Prajna has been beyond life changing. In her class she simultaneously creates and provides a powerful individual and collective experience for the whole class while intentionally sertting everyone up for greatness on their own path. She doesn't just teach and instruct, she embodies the yogic life path that inspires you. This is your sign to sign up for your class right now."


Y.T.T. Graduate 2023

""Thank you for your practice, Prajna, and for living the wisdom that you teach. You are making an impact on the world through just being you."


Y.T.T. Graduate 2022

"Prajna's knowledge of yoga and generous heart were like a breath of fresh air. She shares her passion with reverence to her lineage with enthusiasm that is contagious."


Y.T.T. Graduate 2022

"YTT changed my life & Sunshine Yoga became our home away from home. The peaceful, casual, joyous atmosphere of the studio, coupled with Prajna’s passion for yoga, made my teacher training experience exceptional. I also really appreciated the traditional approach and time spent on Sanskrit, chanting, history, & ALL eight limbs, instead of only focusing on asana and alignment. I will forever be grateful."


Y.T.T. Graduate 2018

This program is for those:

  • Seeking an immersive journey into the heart of yoga and ayurveda as a way of life.

  • Who feel called to a higher purpose and to help raise the consciousness of the planet through the wisdom of yoga and ayurveda.

  • Students who are ready to dive deep into yoga philosophy, anatomy, and the subtle body.

  • Yoga practitioners who want to teach yoga in it's true form and honor the lineage from which it came.

  • Willing to dedicate their time and energy to the study and practice of yoga and ayurveda on and off the mat.

  • Seeking a transformative experience via yoga and ayurveda practices.

This program is NOT for those:

  • Seeking a fast-track yoga teacher certification.

*This program is a 12 month immersive study program that allows ample time to implement the practices and experience the benefits of the practices.

  • Who only want to learn one aspect of yoga or ayurveda and dismiss what doesn’t interest them.

*These sister sciences are complex; they approach body, mind, spirit and life as a WHOLE.

  • Who view yoga as a means to physical and mental health, yet are not ready to embrace all aspects of yoga, including sacred mantra (Sanskrit prayers), and honoring the ancient spiritual practices.

*This is understandable, it just means that this is not the right program for you right now and the right one is out there waiting for you to find.

Are you ready to join us on this transformative journey and embrace yoga as a profound spiritual practice; to witness its power to unravel

the layers of the Self, and foster conscious thought, inclusivity, and compassion for all beings?

"My teaching is inspired by my mentor, the late T.K.V. Desikachar. He was fond of saying, "The yoga should be adjusted to the student, not the other way around." My recent work has focused on helping teachers learn to do this whether they're in groups, online, or teaching 500 students at a time."

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I take the course if I don't want to teach yoga?

The program is partially self-paced, however, the length of the course is precisely designed to give students the maximum benefit to allow growth and transformation. Therefore it will take a minimum of 10 months to become certified and then 2 more months of support from your teachers while you start your teaching journey, if you choose to teach. Post-graduation hours can be used for Continuing Education Hours per Yoga Alliance.

With such a large variety of online YTT courses and pricing options, why not choose the quickest and / or cheapest one?

When it comes to developing a life-long skill and personal transformation, it is important to find not only a quality program with expert guides, but also to consider that you are making an investment in your future.. The tradition of yoga was originally passed down from teacher to student for a considerable duration of commitment and dedication, therefore a yoga training program should never be rushed or undervalued.

This program is designed for students who are serious about learning the deeper practices of yoga and are willing to invest time and money in getting results.

Can I complete the course in less than 12 months?

The program is mostly self-paced, however, the length of the course is precisely designed to give students the maximum benefit to allow for growth and transformation, so we don't recommend reading ahead or speeding through content. Your practice is the biggest growth tool, which takes time to develop. Therefore it will take a minimum of 10 months to become certified plus 2 more months of support from your teachers while you start your teaching journey, if you choose to teach. Post-graduation hours can be used for Continuing Education Hours per Yoga Alliance.

Are there books and / or materials to purchase?

Yes, there are just a few books we require and / or recommend. If you are accepted to join the program you will be provided a book list and materials recommended. The investment for books and materials should cost no more than $40 depending on edition and condition you choose.

What amount of time can I expect to commit each week?

We will have one virtual group class per week, which are required (with the exception of a certain number of allotted missed hours), plus self-practice, recorded content, and self-study of approximitely 4 hours per week.
