Holle Black

Holle began practicing yoga in 1993. After practicing many different lineages she was drawn to Pranakriya because it deeply explores yoga philosophy and emphasizes proper and safe alignment, bringing focus not just to the physical side of yoga, but to the psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a deeper yoga practice. Holle’s completed training in the Pranakriya tradition includes her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training under the directorship of Yoganand Michael Carroll, William Hufschmidt, and Marlysa Sullivan, her 500-Hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Certification under the directorship of Marlysa Sullivan and Yoganand Michael Carroll, and her Prenatal Teacher Training under the directorship of Jacci Reynolds. She is a co-founder and director of Centering Youth, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization with yoga programs in the Fulton County and Dekalb County Juvenile court systems, Haven ATL, and Covenant House. Holle has completed 20 hours of trauma-sensitive yoga training with David Emerson and the Trauma Center Yoga Program, and has also trained with Matthew Sanford, Mark Lilly, Jim Bennett, and Tias Little. In addition, Holle has completed a 5-week victim advocacy course through The Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence and Agnes Scott College. She brings all her varied trainings and unique experience to her perspective on the practice and teaching of yoga.
