Agni is 250+ hours online.
There are limited spaces for in-person study in Altadena, California.  

We look forward to announcing retreats to Mexico, Woodstock, NY and other destinations coming in 2023!

Asana & Alignment; Holistic Anatomy; the Pranic body; Nadis, the Subtle body; Chakras; the Mind and Soul. Study the philosophy of Yoga through Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, The Kriya Yoga Upanishads, Vijnana Bharaiva and other beloved historical texts.  AGNI is for those souls who wish to practice with others of a similar thirst.

 

To fulfill the requirement for AGNI certification in Yoga as Therapy, weekly self-practice, a minimum of two classes/week with the instructor present, and written homework is required along with each module.  

The times for Yoga Therapy, Ayurvedic discussions and lectures depend on the availability of the current Teacher Trainees and are additional to weekly Yoga classes.  

The momentum for the Intensive comes from the students. Currently, as the Intensive Training is self-paced, each student moves on to the next of 13 modules after the last is completed, allowing each student individual application and contemplation throughout the course work.

3 Aspects to The Online Training

 

1. Commitment to a Self-Practice  

Meditation, asana and Kriya practice centered around each module's theme.  Detailed written notes with photos, drawings and videos are sent via email so that the materials can be studied and embodied.  Each of the module's Kriya Yoga series may take between 90 – 180 minutes to practice on your own, depending on how it is approached. 

 

Ideally, Yoga is done in a clean, silent, sacred space.  After taking live Zoom classes or viewing recorded sessions, you are encouraged to explore the material more deeply, working on Kriya practices from the notes, and with your own mind and body rhythms, especially when you turn the internet off!

 

2. Online Yoga, Dharma Talks and Group Discussions  

* See the full online Schedule below. 

Minimum of 2 live, online classes or workshop classes must be attended and documented each week throughout the training. These can be with Lea or with any PRANA MANDIR Yoga graduate.

* Minimum 3 hours/ week of Dharma talks/Wisdom teachings & Group Discussions which may include:

Kriya Yoga & Tantric Philosophy

Methodologies for Healing & the Inner Technology of Health

Destinations such as Idyllwild, California, Varanasi, India, Mexico and Woodstock NY.  Past graduates have come to Pasadena, LA and international retreat destinations to complete their certification.
