Meditation Teacher Training Course

About us

Our Meditation Teacher Training Course (MTTC) is designed first and foremost for the spiritually oriented student who is keen to uncover the mysteries of his or her own mind. This course was personally crafted by our school’s founder, Somananda, a self-realized yogi and advanced teacher of meditation, Yoga, and Tantra. His spiritual achievements are a testament to the successes our MTTC can bring to the individual.

The MTTC provides an extraordinary opportunity to discover the hidden potential of rare meditation techniques whose origins date back thousands of years and are derived from ancient and verified traditions such as Kashmiri Shaivism, Raja Yoga, and Tantra.

Course Structure

The MTTC involves more than 200 hours of intense theoretical and practical studies and training. It is conducted over a period of four weeks and culminates with a theoretical and practical exam.

Upon successful completion and passing of the exam, a Somananda Meditation Teacher’s Certificate will be issued to graduates by the Somananda Tantra School.

The entire retreat will be held at a beautiful and serene family-owned retreat center in the Himalayan Mountains, just 3km from Rishikesh’s Laxman Jhula area. Accommodation and meals will be provided for the full duration of the course.

Module 1 of the MTTC begins with the 10-day Higher Tantra: Trika Meditation Retreat and is open to MTTC students as well as the public. Participation in the Trika Meditation Retreat is compulsory for MTTC students and will prime you for this intensive training by gradually withdrawing you from the sensory world, purifying your physical body and mind, initiating a higher spiritual resonance, and creating a fertile landscape for the higher teachings that will follow in Modules 2 and 3.

Modules 2 and 3 will be exclusively for MTTC students and will include practicum training sessions during which all participants will teach basic Hatha Yoga classes, give lectures, and lead meditation sessions for their peers and MTTC teachers. These practicums will be followed by feedback and comments on the student-teacher’s performance
