Welcome to Long Island Yoga School


Long Island Yoga School offers trainings in various locations all through out Nassau, Suffolk and Queens and is a Registered School (RYS) through Yoga Alliance. We are affiliated with Gentle Strength Yoga Studio located in Rocky Point, Suffolk County and Yoga Journey in Douglaston, Queens. Both of these affiliate studios has a teaching staff that includes graduates of Long Island Yoga School. Our Great Neck Location is at Something Physical. We are registered at the 200 and 300 hour level – 500 Hour Certification when both are completed- and we also issue Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) and offer mentorship programs for those already certified at the 200 and 500 hour level. All of our programs excel the minimum standards set by Yoga Alliance so you can be sure you are getting a quality education from us!

As more and more studios open, there are great opportunities for growth, but along with many studios means condensing class types. There has never been more of a need for teachers who are able to teach to a wide variety of levels in the same room. This is what you will learn through LIYS. We specialize in teaching the ‘True  Open Level Flow’. You will be given an easy to follow format that includes how to cue, sequence and theme specifically for this type of class.
If you are looking to live your passion, look no further!

The style of yoga taught here at Long Island Yoga School is Prana Shakti Flow™. This style of yoga offers a very specific and deliberate sequencing method that focuses on the energetic qualities of the postures. The easy to follow unique format taught in our teacher trainings allows a new teacher to create safe, fun and energetically balanced sequences quickly and easily as if you have been teaching for years.

At Long Island Yoga School we provide the individual attention needed to accomplish your unique goals. In our 200 Hour Yoga Teaching Training Program we help you find your voice and teaching style before you start teaching.

What is Prana Shakti Flow™?

Inner Peace – Outer Strength

Prana Shakti Flow is an energetic and alignment- based vinyasa flow practice, influenced by the ISHTA tradition. One of the physical elements of this flow is a strong focus on – cardiovascular strength, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility and a strong emphasis on core integration. The other element of this unique flow is the releasing aspect of Yin Yoga, which lengthens connective tissue and maintains proper range of motion in the joints, resulting in more prana (energy) flowing through the body.

The Prana Shakti Flow Energetic Sequencing Method™ is a very specific and deliberate sequencing method that focuses on the energetic qualities of the postures. The Prana Shakti Flow sequence brings awareness to the wisdom of the body by building upon the principles of each type of posture. Each posture in the sequence builds upon the alignment principles taught in the previous one. As the sequence progresses, the body has already become familiar with the specific movements needed. In addition, the appropriate muscles have been targeted so the body is physically ready to move to another, perhaps more challenging pose. Taking into consideration the energetic components that exist in each Asana, as well as the subtle energy systems of the body creates an opportunity for a more balanced mind and body after every class.

Prana Shakti Flow vinyasa  flow meets each practitioner at their level – beginner or advanced, and allows one to embrace their own personal experience by bringing deeper awareness to the physical as well as the energetic bodies. Every experience in life is a lesson and an invitation to go inward. The Prana Shakti Flow practice creates an environment that encourages growth and self-acceptance along with Inner Peace and Outer Strength that supports us in yoga and life.

“Prana Shakti Flow is an intimate dance with your soul. It allows you to look inside and love who you really are.” – Lisa B. TT 2010

“I would describe Prana Shakti Flow as the energetic and essential “breath of life” practice that comes in to the body and the various energy centers, allowing us to connect to our inner-self and let go.” – Kim D. TT 2009
