Learn
the depths of classical Tantra yoga in a traditional ashram setting
yoga is much more than asana – it is a lifestyle, and Shanti Yoga Ashram
wants to prepare students who can live yoga, not just do yoga. They are
confident that the experience will not only prepare you to teach yoga,
but give you all the tools you need to maintain a harmonious balance in
your daily life.

from the guru himself along with their experienced teachers. They have a
family atmosphere where your learning experience is very personal and
hands-on. Your teachers are approachable and open to questions. The
surroundings are clean and green, an ideal environment for yoga practice
and spiritual cultivation.

Shanti Yoga Ashram is a certified by
Yoga Alliance. During this training course, you will learn in depth
multiple aspects of yoga, both practical and philosophical. Through
Hatha yoga, you will learn shatkarma techniques – how to cleanse the
body to open the energy channels (nadis), followed by asana, pranayama,
mudra, and bhanda so that the prana can flow. This will lead you to
Ashtanga yoga to control the mind through meditation. By the practice of
Mantra yoga, you will learn how to activate the dormant energy.

Then
Kundalini yoga will take you to the next level, how to unlock this
vital energy, and use it for awakening the chakras and higher levels of
consciousness. You will be empowered to share this knowledge and gain
the confidence to give the experience of yoga to others through these
teachings. You will be ready to teach students of different levels for
therapeutic purposes or to awaken their spiritual consciousness.

The
daily activities provide a balanced mix of all the aspects a great yogi
embodies including disciplined daily practice, knowledge, devotion,
action or work, healthy food, rest, nature, service, and community.
