November 16th – December 1st, 2016
Licensed by the State of Arizona for private post secondary education, all of our training programs are based on national educational standards and are registered with Yoga Alliance.
Our 200 Hour Kundalini Teacher training program is made up of 2 educational modules:
Module I – Chakra Yoga Intensive (65 hours) is a week-long journey exploring the chakras through yoga, sound, meditation and art. Each day focuses on a single chakra, establishing direct experiences that participants can draw on as teachers, healers or students. It is offered twice per year. To learn more click here.
Module II is a 2-week Kundalini Yoga Immersion (135 hours) that emphasizes the scientific and experiential tools to achieve internal and external harmony while practicing and learn to teach the ancient Kundalini techniques that promote personal evolution. It can be taken by yoga teachers seeking deeper internal practices and by newcomers looking to build a classical kundalini yoga foundation of balance integration and transformation. These two modules together form a rich experience of the best of Kundalini Yoga traditions and upon completion a student will receive a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certificate from 7 Centers.
Below is an example of a typical day’s schedule during the Immersion course:
4:30am Kundalini Tantra Sadhana
6:30am Ayurvedic Breakfast
7:15am Karma Yoga

Weekends will follow a special schedule. The middle Sunday is a day off so that students can attend to personal business and integrate the teachings of the week.
