Teaching Certification is from Lea Kraemer and PRANA MANDIR Yoga. Our graduates include Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Kundalini teachers, studio owners, energy workers, Reiki Masters, physical therapists, psychologists, medical doctors and practitioners of many healing traditions. A teacher is a channel for the Guru’s Grace.
Requires 3.5 - 14 hours of practice a week depending on your dedication and 3 - 5 hours of contemplation or writing is given for each module. Students in AGNI are asked to take at least two related classes a week. These should be documented and the style and subject are left to each person's discretion in order to best serve their journey.
Good attendance, gainful participation and knowledgable completion of the course work are essential. No more than two weekends/modules can be missed in order to graduate. Any missed material should be made-up homework must be turned in.
A written exam given out the last day of class is due in 30 days exactly. The physical experience/exam is a Benefit Day of Yoga classes open to all and hosted by the participants of AGNI. Proceeds are donated to a pre-selected charity. This year, we are expecting it to be an online event!
Mentoring is a part of this process, 10 – 15 additional hours.
AGNI gets involved in community service and outreach. We partner with organizations like Community Coalition in South LA. Past graduating trainees Yoga have had opportunities to give classes in their own lineage style. Newer teachers may also choose to support organizing and coordinating community service events at local hospitals, wellness, and community centers. The intention is to bring Yoga & Meditation where it best serves the community!
