Kundalini Yoga is a powerful tool for excellence and self-growth. It offers an accessible means for people to transform personal suffering into blessings and positive attributes into action. Through the practice and presentation of the ancient science of Kundalini Yoga, you will be a facilitator for the forward evolution of many souls, and contribute to peace in this world.
Ana and Ravi are dedicated to helping you discover and express your gifts in your teaching, and your life. This 200 / 300 hr. certification is recognized by the Yoga Alliance, an International Organization for Teacher Training Programs. Sessions will be 75% experiential and 25% lecture. Each of these six weekends will include at least 25 “contact” hrs. (of the 150 required for certification) with Ana & Ravi. By completing this 200/300 hr. Training you will be able to register with Yoga Alliance as a 200/500 hr. certified Teacher. Homework for this Training will include various lifestyle considerations and a personal Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) which we will ask that you practice each day. Individual modules are also open to yogis who wish to deepen their practice.
The 300 hr. Trainees will gather at 9 a.m. on Friday. There will be a break from 12:30 – 2 pm and then the 200 and 300 hr. group will meet again from 2 – 5:30 p.m. The Saturday session will begin at 8 a.m. (mantra walk). We will break at 12:30 and convene again from 2 pm to 5:30 pm. The Sunday session will start at 6 a.m. (morning sadhana) and will continue (with breaks) until 12:30 pm.
“The heart of a Teacher has four chambers. One pumps out Wisdom. One blessings. One absorbs negativity. One transforms it.” —Yogi Bhajan

Overview of the 300 hr. Training
The 300 hr. Training is for those Teachers who have completed a Yoga Alliance 200 hr.
certification course in any yoga style, towards becoming a 500 hr. Teacher.
Module 1: Siddhis: Gifts of Grace – Siddhis are gifts of grace granted through
discipline. Aspirants are warned against the cultivation of these yogic superpowers but in true
tantric fashion we Kundalini yogis employ the transgressive to benefit all beings and to fast
track our inner and outer growth. In this session we will explore previously unpublished
material taught by Yogi Bhajan in 1969-70 to light up the world!
Module 2: Serving the Underserved – Yoga has become a quest for beauty and
fabulousness but beyond that hedonistic milieu there is a whole contingent of very deserving
souls who are often overlooked. In this session we will learn how to present yoga to physically
and mentally challenged people as well as people with mobility issues (more than half the
population!). Our motto for this module is service with a smile!
Module 3: Humanology – Many people on the Spiritual Path try to do an end run
around the stick issues in their lives but that approach is not sustainable. This module is all
about “feeling work,” and how the drama of our early years continues to inform our present.
We will delve into powerful Kundalini Yoga techniques to turn past pain into infinite gain.
Module 4: History and Philosophy – The history of yoga is a process of continual
unfolding. Kundalini Yoga is part of the fabric of All Yoga, not just an isolated style that
appeared in a vacuum. In this module we will delve into the historic precedents for Kundalini
Yoga and the ideas that gave rise to the Kundalini Yoga we know and love.
Module 5: Advanced Tantric Numerology – The numerology portion of the 200
hr. Training was only the beginning. In this module we will review our initial foray into
Tantric Numerology and learn new tricks of the trade as well as 20 additional calculations
and much more!
Module 6: Creativity and Consciousness – In this module we will learn how to
be yogi wizards and to imbue your teaching with your unique creativity! Included will be
yoga nidra, soul journeys, and magic and mystery. In addition to all of above we will engage
in group community outreach, mentorship to the 200 hr. Trainees, as well as a personal
project that will help you develop those gifts that make you special as a Teacher. It’s akin to
“finding your voice” as an artist. And of course we will continue to grow as a group and
elevate and celebrate.
Assisting in the Training will be Sal Annunziato, Jennifer Greenwald and other allstar
Teachers from the Branford Yoga Community
