Course overview

During this one year course, Shanti Yoga Ashram does not just develop new yoga teachers. They transform people into vehicles for higher consciousness, to do its work and spread its love, light, and wisdom of classical Tantra yoga. Therefore this course will be on an academic level.

The goal is for one to be established in the wisdom and knowledge of Tantra yoga and verify the teachings by oneself. When one has experienced his true potential and had insight in his own true inner light, this light will radiate like the sun upon the world around, releasing all people from suffering.

Through implementing all classical teachings in one’s lifestyle, Tantra yoga has the ability to bring you back to the place where you remember that the manifested and unmanifested are one. And that within these costumes, there is eternity. And when you say “I” and they say “I”, you are referring to the same one. It creates harmony between the inner and the outer world, in which you are neither too much in and neither too much out.

When one is ready, the new message will arrive. Nowadays the world is ready for this message. Shanti Yoga Ashram believes that to change the world, you should not adapt to the world and its lost way of teaching yoga. One has to be strong to share this wisdom around, in the classical way, knowing he is serving the love and light of the truth. For the one that lives in truth, higher consciousness will always be by his side.

Shanti Yoga Ashram provides a peaceful ashram setting where students can fully absorb themselves in the study of yoga, while living a yogic lifestyle. Individually and collectively, they give practical tools needed to advance on the yogic path.

Rationality of the program

  • Yoga is a way to counteract the problems and stresses of modern life. It gives a chance for people to develop themselves to their highest potentials, rather than falling prey to addictions and other unhealthy vices. Overall it uplifts the entire society. Shanti Yoga Ashram is confident that yoga is one of the true paths by which lasting peace, contentment, and joy can be found.
  • The purity of yoga is being lost or confused. In order to have its full potency, it must be passed on in its classical form as it has been done for generations.

Academic program mission

Yoga is an ancient science developed by esteemed sages and rishis for the liberation of human consciousness. Traditionally, the deeper aspects of this science have been taught only in a non-academic manner. The mission is to teach this divine science in an academic setting and in a systematic manner while upholding its highest spiritual purpose - to fully awaken human potential for the transformation of the self and the upliftment of society.


To preserve this great yogic science for future generations and to spread the light of yoga all over the world, contributing to world peace and harmony among all.


To provide the highest level of yogic education that can be applied universally to all people. Shanti Yoga Ashram intends to give yogic wisdom in its pure form with all its depth, so that the students will be able to master this science and teach it to others.
