Created by Amba Stapleton, Pranassage® is a creative synthesis of yoga and bodywork that produces deep relaxation in both the receiver and the giver.


Pranassage Yoga Teacher Training - Become a Pranassage Practitioner!In this training, you will learn how to physically move your client’s body into a flow of positions, allowing them remain passive, so that they can feel each position from the inside out. As you guide their bodies through interesting sequences of movement, the receiver is able to witness forgotten possibilities for motion and action, creating balance and relief throughout every part of their being.


This form of effortless movement reeducates and neurologically reorganizes the receiver’s physical being, replacing inefficient patterns with fluid, harmonious and efficient movements.


The Experience of Pranassage®:

        • Encourages a relationship with gravity: By allowing the force of gravity to do the work, the giver is able to remain relaxed while the receiver’s body releases the weight of unnecessary tension

        • Increases sensation, providing insight into areas of tension and openness in the body

        • Creates a direct line of communication with the body, as the practitioner asks “would you like more or less pressure,” and the receiver listens internally for what is needed, moment by moment


Pranassage® is not yoga therapy...

As practitioners, we are not attempting to produce deep contact with the emotions that arise in various positions. Rather, in this training, you will learn how to listen and witness, so that if and when emotions do arise, you can be present with your client as another human being.


Pranassage® is…

Pranassage® is grounded in the science of yoga, as well as anatomy, physiology and efficient body mechanics. It is also rooted in common sense and intuition. Once familiar with the basic techniques, opportunities for creativity and inventiveness naturally arise.

Upon graduation, certified Pranassage® Practitioners are qualified to offer individualized sessions that are creatively tailored to each client’s fitness needs. These skills are also transferable, as you develop increased sensitivity while offering assists in regular group classes.

The deeper we can relax without losing awareness, the more we can begin to feel the flow of prana that yoga promises.
