Candles given to graduates at the 2,000 hour Certificate Level graduation from the College of Purna Yoga

The 2,000 hour Certificate Level program is designed to support teachers to become holders of the flame of Purna Yoga. Graduates at this level deepen their practice to go beyond learning, beyond living, to embodying the Light of Purna Yoga. They may choose to share and grow Purna Yoga by opening Purna Yoga studios, leading Purna Yoga Foundation Level teacher trainings in their area, teaching at Alive & Shine Center (formerly Yoga Centers), or by teaching Purna Yoga Meditation, among other ways.

At the Certificate Level you study directly with world-renowned yoga masters and Purna Yoga founders Aadil Palkhivala and Savitri, you receive the gift of working with two teachers fervently dedicated to your progress and growth towards your Soul.  The Certificate Level is our most rigorous program, holding you to the highest standards of excellence in your personal practice, your yoga teaching and your life.

This program delves deeply into Purna Yoga meditation, asana and pranayama, teaching methodology, therapeutics, applied philosophy, business, ethics, nutrition, and energetics.  To fulfill the program’s intention and embody Purna Yoga, you must learn to live and teach from your inner wisdom—therefore, the greatest attention is placed on the development of your personal integrity, professionalism, and inner connection with light and truth.


Participants must be Affiliate Purna Yoga Instructors and Registered Yoga Teachers at the 500-hour Level with Yoga Alliance (be an “RYT-500”).
