Teaching Certification is from Lea Kraemer and PRANA MANDIR Yoga.

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.


Good attendance, gainful participation and successful completion of the course work is essential.  No more than two weekends/modules can be missed in order to graduate.  Any missed weekends must be attended & make-up homework must be turned in.  Homework requires a minimum of three hours of practice or contemplation and is given for each module.  Students in Agni are asked to take at least two related classes a week.  These should be documented and are up to each student’s discretion as to the style and subject that will best serve their spiritual journey.

Mentoring is a part of this process, 10 – 15 additional hours.


A written exam given out the last day of class is due in 30 days.  The physical “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.

AGNI is often involved in community outreach and currently partners with Community Coalition in South LA.  In the past, Yoga teachers have also had opportunities to give classes in their own lineage style and to be mentored as they go.  New graduates support outreach at hospitals, studios, and community centers.  The intention is to bring Yoga & Meditation where it best serves the community!
