 Agni is a 250+ hour online training.
The more tim
e each student puts into their studies, the more they will receive. 
In-person, there are limited spaces available
or in-person training in Altadena, California.


           The AGNI Intensive & Teacher Training covers a broad spiritual spectrum to reflect the depth and dimension of the system of Shabd Kriya Yoga from which this work has evolved. The Intensive presents:

Conscious Asana & Alignment

Holistic & Ayurvedic Anatomy

The Pranic Body and The Major Nadis 

The Subtle Body and Tantric Chakra System

 True Mind and Soul Body

Study the philosophy of Yoga through Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, The Kriya Yoga Upanishads, Vijnana Bharaiva and other beloved historical texts as well as the "Love Notes"which are an extensive manual created from over 20 years of classroom tools and resources for the students of this training.  AGNI is for those souls who wish to practice with others of a similar thirst.


To fulfill the graduation and certification requirements for AGNI in Yoga as Therapy, you will need to make time for a daily self-practice; a minimum of two Yoga classes of your choosing each week with the instructor present; lectures and discussions on each theme; and the written homework requiring from 2 - 10 hours for each module.  

Times for Yoga as Therapy methodology and Ayurvedic Yoga discussions and lectures depend on the availability of the current group of Teacher Trainees. These sessions are additional to the weekly Yoga practice and meditation class practices.  

The momentum for the Intensive truly comes from the students. Online students may graduate in as little as 6 and no more than 24 months. As  the Intensive Training is currently self-paced, each student moves on to the next of 13 modules after the last is completed, allowing each for individual research and contemplation throughout the course!

3 Aspects of 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. Practice: Yoga Classes, Dharma Talks and Live Group Discussion 

* 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

Ayurvedic Principals & Anatomy
