About Pranakryia Director William Hufschmidt, ERYT500

William_Hufschmidt_BioWilliam Hufschmidt‘s journey with healing began at age 14 as he recovered from a car accident. Meditation and breath awareness were his primary methods of pain management. Progressing through traction, wheel chairs, casts, and crutches, it took William two years to regain control of his body. This early experience fortified his belief that we can heal from anything if we consciously navigate our healing process. In 1989, William took his first yoga class with Lorna Brown, and subsequently taught classes under her guidance. In 2001, William completed the 200-hour-level Yoga Teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, and in 2007, completed Kripalu’s 500-hour training. William has also earned the Pranakriya 500-hour Yoga Teacher certification. William began Thai training in 2002 with Patricia Kilpatrick and Saul David Raye, and in 2006 trained in Thailand with Wat Po and with Chiang Mai’s “Mama Lek” Chaiya. He has been strongly influenced by Yoganand, Saul David Raye, and life itself. As a teacher, William empowers students to explore their edges and potentials. “We all do not walk the same path towards self-discovery. However, we are all storehouses of infinite wisdom and creativity, and through the practices of yoga, breathwork, sacred touch and play, we can tap into inner reservoirs of energy and possibility.
