Teaching can be a doorway to deeper understanding for your own spiritual practices, and helping others to discover meditation is a wonderful gift to yourself and to society.

Why take this course?

The land of healing lies within, radiant with that happiness blindly sought in a thousand misdirections.”   –  Paramhansa Yogananda
Never has there been, in modern society, a greater need for individuals to learn to rely more on inner than on outer resources. Burn out, depression and stress are but symptoms of a widespread and vital need to build an inner, spiritual life based on the solid foundation of personal experience.
If you are a yoga teacher, a social worker, a student or in any other way interested in inspiring yourself and others with the practice of the ancient science and art of meditation, then this teacher training course is for you.


What basic techniques will you learn?

To the ancient teachings of Self-Realization that he adapted to Western needs, Yogananda contributed with a unique method to increase the awareness of the subtle energies in body and mind, the mastery of which constitutes a core ingredient for meditation.

In this course you will receive knowledge on which this method is built plus exercises that your students can take home to prepare their bodies and minds for meditation.

The core concentration technique you will learn to teach is known as hong sau, a mantra that, when associated with the in-and-outgoing breath, calms the nervous system and the heart beat, freeing the mind for meditation and higher, super-conscious perceptions of peace, calmness, bliss and other higher realities.  



Ample time will be given to each participant to gain actual experience by guiding the group in exercises, meditations and visualizations. Through shared, collective feedback and group discussions we will gain a deeper understanding of the skills needed to be a good meditation teacher.
