Kundalini Yoga, the art and science of Spirit Rising, is a powerful tool for excellence and self-growth and for dealing with the stress and uncertainty of these times. The Path of a Spiritual Teacher is a meritorious and noble endeavor. Through the practice and presentation of the ancient science of Kundalini Yoga you will be a facilitator for the forward evolution of many souls.

Sessions will be 75% experiential and 25% discussion. This Training has been designed to create Self-Mastery and the capacity to heal, uplift, and inspire. Through honest participation you'll cultivate personal greatness. This 200 hr. certification, accredited by the Yoga Alliance, an International umbrella organization for Yoga Teachers and Schools, requires 180 contact hours (with Ravi & Ana personally present). The additional 20 hours entail homework and additional classes outside the training. In this certification you pick up hours as you go at any location at which we're conducting a Teacher Training.

What we are presenting is a Grand Synthesis which are the core teachings which serve as the underpinning for all yoga systems. The eight-limbed path, as pre- sented by Patanjali, is actually a progression of increasingly sublime modes of Spiritual technology. In the ancient traditions of India, those who demonstrated reverence and commitment, by living a pure lifestyle, were accepted as students. Physical yoga was taught as a preparation for journeys into the subtle realms and conscious embodi- ment. This process was a lifetime endeavor. In life as we know it, most of us don’t have the time and resources to drop everything for this mode of work on ourselves. What Kundalini Yoga represents is the simultaneous exploration of these stages: 1. Yamas - Universal moral constants 2. Niyamas - Personal observances 3. Asanas - Physical exercises for health and preparation for inner work. 4. Pranayama - Conscious breathing and control of prana 5. Pratyahara - Control of the senses 6. Dharana - Concentration and cultivating inner perceptual awareness 7. Dhyana - Devotion, Meditation on the Divine 8. Samadhi - Union with the Divine In most yoga schools, these terms are often cited, but not really explored. Kundalini Yoga is literally the “greatest hits,” of the Saints and Sages of the ages. This body of Teachings has been cited as the “Fifth Veda,” and capstone of all yoga systems.


Previously doctors, lawyers, and CPAs were the honored professions. In the new millennium it will be the Teachers of Spirit who will be most respected, and revered. May you ever be willing to put your body and being on the line to be Divine and bring light to every heart.

300 hr. Raviana Teacher Training Overview

What we are presenting is a Grand Synthesis which are the core teachings which serve as the underpinning for all yoga systems. The eight-limbed path, as presented by Patanjali, is actually a progression of increasingly sublime modes of Spiritual technology. In the ancient traditions of India, those who demonstrated reverence and commitment,
by living a pure lifestyle, were accepted as students. Physical yoga was taught as a preparation for journeys into the subtle realms and conscious embodiment. This process was a lifetime endeavor In life as we know it, most of us don’t have the time and resources to drop everything for this mode of work on ourselves. What Kundalini Yoga represents is the simultaneous exploration of these stages In this Training we will present these sublime Teachings in a very down to earth way. We are also going to expand on the material from your 200 hr.Training with us and explore the deeper mysteries and science which serve as the underpinning for this work. We plan to hold your hold your feet to the fire a bit to insure that you walk away with a deep understanding of this material. This course will give you the tools to go anywhere, and be effective, not only as a Yoga Teacher, but as a Healer, Spiritual adviser, and Radiant Being. Increase your teaching repertoire, with new insights, methods, insights, and
inspiration. Also, meet other great yogis and share in a powerful and beautiful group energy to heal the world.

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 millieu 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 wil 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 isloated style that appeared in a vacuum. In this module we will delve in 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.
