A Self-paced exploration of Kriya Yoga, Ayurveda and

Yogic principals of rejuvenation and regeneration.

This discount will also apply to the training tuition if you continue into the full certification program.

Expand your knowledge as you explore the Intensive.

           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 teachings on:

Conscious Asana & Alignment

Holistic & Ayurvedic Anatomy

The Pranic Body and Major Nadis 

Subtle Body Structure 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 through the course "Love Notes" which are an extensive manual created from over 20 years of yogic tools and resources.  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:

1. Make time for a daily self-practice. 

2. Take a minimum two Yoga classes of your choosing each week

either live with the instructor present, or in archived classes.

3. Attend live or watch 2 - 3 lecture/discussions on each theme.

4.  Submit your written homework requiring 2 - 10 hours for each module.  

Times for Yoga as Therapy methodology and Ayurvedic Yoga lectures depend on the availability of the current group of Teacher Trainees. Please note that these sessions are additional to weekly Yoga and meditation classes and  practices.  

The momentum for the Intensive truly comes from the students.  Online students may graduate in as little as 6 and no more than 28 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 for individual evolution, intellectual research and spiritual contemplation throughout the course!

3 Main Aspects of Online Training

Breaking down the requirements:

 

1. Commitment to a Self-Practice  

Meditation, asana and Kriya practices are given, centering around each module's theme.  Detailed written notes, with photos, drawings and often videos are sent out via email so the materials can be studied and embodied.  Each module's Kriya Yoga series may take between 90 – 180 minutes, depending on how the session is approached. 

 

Ideally, Yoga happens in a clean, silent, sacred space.  After taking live Zoom classes or viewing a recorded session, AGNI students are encouraged to explore the material more deeply.  Working on Kriya and meditation practices from personal notes as well as course materials, students find their true mind and body rhythms, especially with all media and internet turned off!

 

2. Participate in TeachingsYoga Classes, Dharma Talks, Group Discussions 

* See the full online Schedule below. 

A minimum of 2 live, online, or archived yoga classes must be attended and documented each week throughout the training.
