300 Hours Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Course
About Kundalini Y. T. T. C.
Kundalini: The term “Kundalini” in a more intellectual sense refers to “Dormant supra-mental energy” in individual existence. In tradition of Yoga, Kundalini has been revered as “Mother Shakti which grants the key to extra-sensory phenomenon and liberation.” There are many literal as well as philosophical implications to the word “Kundalini” one can find, however, we would like to site the beautiful exposition of the great Swami Satyananda Saraswati hereunder:
“Kundalini is not a myth or an illusion. It is not a hypothesis or a hypnotic suggestion. Kundalini is a biological substance that exists within the framework of the body. Its awakening generates electrical impulses throughout the whole body and these impulses can be detected by modern scientific instruments and machines. Therefore, each of us should consider the importance and the benefits of awakening Kundalini”.
For more information please, refer to Kundalini Yoga.
This is a fully residential YTTC which envisages systematic theoretical as well as practical methods of traditional Kundalini Yoga. The course is all about Kundalini and the practices which eventually leads to the manifold expressions of her at the individual level.
At the successful completion of the course an aspirant will be conferred upon a certificate indicating that the aspirant is qualified to impart the techniques in which he or she has been trained.
Duration: 28 days.
