"The 200 Hour Teacher Training at Prana Yoga was well worth every minute of my time. Gerhard is an extremely knowledgeable and gifted teacher, and the trainers he brought in during the training are all experts at what they do. I feel as though the Prana teacher training strives to make yoga accessible to everyone - it is not exclusive to elite practitioners. Gerhard is clearly passionate and well versed in what he does, and he knows how to translate that passion into concise, relevant and inclusive instruction to equip others in spreading the good works of yoga." Kimberly Blough, PYTT graduate November 2014
