About This Center
Our Kundalini Yoga teacher Training course is offered in a real ashram environment where students and guests can see the real people living the principles of yoga in their own life.
This course is certified by Yoga Alliance USA and after this course you are able to teach yoga anywhere in the world.
This is an intense yoga course where the students will undergo seven hours of training every day. The training will comprise the sessions of Kundalini Yoga asanas, pranayama, Kundalini meditation, yoga philosophy, physiology of yoga, and mantra chanting.
Kundalini yoga is the most authentic and ancient style of yoga. This includes the practice of rigorous Pranayama practice and serious meditation on chakras and Kundalini.
There are some part of Asanas that is practiced with more awareness and breathing. The aim here is to help the flow of Prana energy in the right manner.
Further here we explore the advance practice of Mudras, Bandhas and that really help us get better awareness of Chakras and their energies.
Finally the practice of Kundalini yoga requires the serious practice of meditation with Kriyas (inner process) which really help us in awakening in Chakras and Kundalini in a long time.
With the time we infuse all these practices of Pranayama, Kriya, Mudra and Bandhas with some seed mantras during meditation techniques.
This way the practice becomes more and more rigorous and focus becomes more intense. The subject start going beyond the body dimensions (Annamaya Kosha) and enters the dimension of energy (Pranamaya Kosha).
Here the focus changes from the external techniques to awareness of Chakras and their functioning. The subject starts becoming aware of the ‘Prana’ movement and gets more and more control over the ‘Prana’.
Ashram means a place amongst the nature where everyone cares each other and lives like a family. Sri Yoga Ashram provides exactly the same thing with the objective of common spiritual growth for all its family members.
The teachers and staff live in the same place and are always available for their students for all kind of support. Unlike many other schools, here you get a real family environment and get to connect with your teachers and their families.
This is a unique part of Sri Yoga Ashram.
This retreat course is fully residential. All the activities are conducted at the same place. So, all the yoga practice and theory classes will be conducted on the same premises.
