This course was life changing. The setting was absolutely gorgeous, clean, and well cared for. The food was healthy and delicious. The instructors went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible. They took great care developing the training materials and making sure we understood what was being taught. They were responsive to any concerns we had and were so loving and kind the entire time. There was an empathsis on personal growth which was incredibly beneficial. I highly recommend it!

I am so happy that after searching for a long time for the right place to future my studies as a yoga teacher, that I chose Pranaluz.
Every aspect of the module that I completed resonated strongly with me. The philosophy, mediation, anatomy and asana components were all authentic and comprehensive.
All of the teachers are very experienced, open minded and grounded.
Analu is an intuitive and natural born teacher with years of varied experience to support her vast knowledge. She has a great focus on alignment to suit individuals in asana and a wealth of knowledge in many areas. You will love her straight away!
Matahi has such a rich history of life and spirituality that he is able to share from the heart with humour and passion.
Katya is an astounding soul who will gently guide and support you.
My heart was opened and my mind and expectations blown away. This next level of yoga teacher training is holistic and will deepen your knowledge of yoga as well as helping you to grow as a person.
I’m looking forward to studying with Pranaluz again as soon as I can.
