Probiotics & Prebiotics

Probiotics are contained with a range of food and nutrition products such as dietary supplements, medicinal foods, biopharmaceuticals and medical devices delivering probiotics. Prebiotics foods are taken as dietary ingredients to maintain the Biological Symbiosis with the microbial flora. Dietary supplements created through the synergism of Pro and Pre-biotic are the Synbiotics. The nutrition supplemented with the beneficial microbial flora and the associated microbiome in human gut, restoring the human digestive system as a whole is said to be the “Probiotics”.

Agriculture Microbiology

Agricultural microbiology which is the most important field of Microbiology for the economic and medical importance it holds. This field explores various aspects like the genetics, physiology, molecular biology, virulence & pathogenicity and other aspects of the plant microbes. It deals with the infectious agents of the microbes, improvements and resistance of the agricultural crops, economic importance and the beneficial aspects of the normal agricultural flora. A complete study and understanding is crucial in application of the microbes for augmentation of soil nutrients, which is increasing the resistance of plants against the plant pathogen, for understanding the interaction a microbe has with the plant, and crop robustness.

Plant Beneficial Microbes

Soil microorganisms are the most abundant of all the biota in soil and responsible for driving nutrient and organic matter cycling, soil fertility, soil restoration, plant health and ecosystem primary production. Beneficial microorganisms include those that create symbiotic associations with plant roots (rhizobia, mycorrhizal fungi, actinomycetes, diazotrophic bacteria), promote nutrient mineralization and availability, produce plant growth hormones, and are antagonists of plant pests, parasites or diseases (biocontrol agents). Many of these organisms are already naturally present in the soil, although in some situations it may be beneficial to increase their populations by either inoculation or by applying various agricultural management techniques that enhance their abundance and activity.

Bowels to Behavior : The Gut-Brain Axis

The ability of gut microbiota to communicate with the brain and thus modulate behavior is emerging as an exciting concept in health and disease. The enteric microbiota interacts with the host to form essential relationships that govern homeostasis. Despite the unique enteric bacterial fingerprint of each individual, there appears to be a certain balance that confers health benefits. It is, therefore, reasonable to note that a decrease in the desirable gastrointestinal bacteria will lead to deterioration in gastrointestinal, neuroendocrine or immune relationships and ultimately disease.

The term “Immunobiotics” has been proposed to define microbial strains able to beneficially regulate the mucosal immune system. Over the past few years, we have witnessed the emergence of robust development in the application of immunobiotics to combat infections, and researchers have found that the use of beneficial microbes is an interesting alternative to prevent and reduce the severity of infections in humans and animals. The effect of immunobiotics on the gut innate and adaptive immune responses to enteric pathogens has been recognized conclusively the influence of immunobiotics on the immune responses in distal mucosal sites and its impact in the outcome of respiratory infections has recently been exposed.

Oral Microbiology

Oral microbiology is the study of the microorganisms (microbiota) of the oral cavity and their interactions between oral microorganisms or with the host. Microbes within dental plaque as the cause of dental and periodontal diseases. The collective function of microbial communities is a major driver of homeostasis or dysbiosis and ultimately health or disease. Despite different aetiologies, periodontitis and caries are each driven by a feed forward loop between the microbiota and host factors (inflammation and dietary sugars, respectively) that favours the emergence and persistence of dysbiosis.



A microbiome is the community of microorganisms such as bacteria, archaea, fungi, as well as viruses that inhabit an ecosystem or organism. Microorganisms dominate all other life everywhere scientists have looked, including the human body, the Earth’s soils and sediments, the oceans and fresh waterways, the atmosphere and even extreme environments such as hydrothermal vents and subglacial lakes. Scientists also use the term microbiome to refer to all these genes associated with those life forms.

Marine Microbiology

Marine microbiology is the study of microorganisms and non-organismic microbes that exist in saltwater environments, including the open ocean, coastal waters, estuaries, on marine surfaces and in sediments. Aquatic microbiology is the science that deals with microscopic living organisms in fresh or salt water systems. Aquaculture & Marine Biotechnology helps to control the marine organisms and water borne organisms. It is a process which has to do with marine or underwater environment. Blue Biotechnology is used to protect the marine organisms from harmful diseases underwater. The control of seasonal production and reproduction in farm animals has become major research goals. The applications of biotechnology to fish farming and ornamental fish production are numerous and valuable in both economic (food production, aquarium trade) and environmental terms (conservation of natural biodiversity for endangered species and protection of natural biodiversity from escapee domesticated strains). With the growing demand for fish products, biotechnology can help in the development of high quality, economical produce, thereby reducing pressure on natural population.

Ecology and Evolution of Microbe-Host Interactions

Microbes are typically surrounded by different strains and species with whom they compete for scarce nutrients and limited space. Given such challenging living conditions, microbes have evolved many phenotypes with which they can outcompete and displace their neighbours: secretions to harvest resources, loss of costly genes whose products can be obtained from others, stabbing and poisoning neighbouring cells, or colonising spaces while preventing others from doing so. These competitive phenotypes appear to be common, although evidence suggests that, over time, competition dies down locally, often leading to stable coexistence of genetically distinct lineages. Nevertheless, the selective forces acting on competition and the resulting evolutionary fates of the different players depend on ecological conditions in a way that is not yet well understood. Here, we highlight open questions and theoretical predictions of the long-term dynamics of competition that remain to be tested. Establishing a clearer understanding of microbial competition will allow us to better predict the behaviour of microbes, and to control and manipulate microbial communities for industrial, environmental, and medical purposes.

Engineering Beneficial Microbes

Demands for food, animal feed, and feedstocks for bioenergy and biorefining applications, are increasing with population growth, urbanization and affluence. Low-input, sustainable, alternatives to petrochemical-derived fertilizers and pesticides are required to reduce input costs and maintain or increase yields, with potential biological solutions having an important role to play. Plant–microbe interactions span a wide range of relationships in which one or both of the organisms may have a beneficial, neutral or negative effect on the other partner. A relatively small number of beneficial plant–microbe interactions are well understood and already exploited; however, others remain understudied and represent an untapped reservoir for optimizing plant production. There may be near-term applications for bacterial strains as microbial biopesticides and biofertilizers to increase biomass yield from energy crops grown on land unsuitable for food production. Longer term aims involve the design of synthetic genetic circuits within and between the host and microbes to optimize plant production. A highly exciting prospect is that endosymbionts comprise a unique resource of reduced complexity microbial genomes with adaptive traits of great interest for a wide variety of applications.

100-hr Kundalini & Chakra Meditation Facilitator Training Program,Toronto, Canada

100-hr Kundalini & Chakra Meditation Facilitator Training Program


100-hr Intensive Kundalini & Chakra Meditation Facilitator Training Program

There are many approaches to understand the art and science of meditation. Our approach is through Naturality, meaning to live according to your true nature. The Naturality approach is neither religious nor spiritual but natural; after learning the basics of meditation techniques and practices, you are encouraged to discover your unique way of meditating according to your natural personality. It is the easiest way to practice meditation. The practice of meditation promotes emotional healing and can be helpful for those suffering from a variety of acute and chronic health problems including stress-related disorders, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. The goal is to become free from fear and guilt and live with peace, passion and bliss.

Whether you are a practitioner of meditation or a beginner, this program will deepen your own meditation practice and will also enable you to teach meditation to individuals and groups.

This comprehensive and unique program is offered by Jivasu, founder of the Path of Naturality, and several of his fellow teachers, in association with and certified by the Canadian Yoga Alliance.

There are many approaches to understand and experience the Yoga of Kundalini and the Chakras. From the Naturality point of view, Kundalini and the Chakras constitute the supreme Yoga and contain the essence of all other Yogas, religions and spiritual paths. It is ancient yet contemporary, as it can be explained through spirituality and philosophy and also in terms of science without bringing any religion in to define it. Through its philosophy and practice we can understand and realize non-dual consciousness as well as our true selves and the world around us with all its chaos, politics, economy, joy, sufferings and cultural conflicts. To know Kundalini and the Chakras is to understand and realize what can be understood and realized at all levels of life.

What you will learn

In this 100-hour intensive teaching training course, taught in Toronto in September 2019, we will be focusing on both theory and practical meditation teachings, so that you will achieve mastery in the practice of Kundalini and Chakra methods to become a competent meditation facilitator.


Naturality: Naturality is an open, flexible and ever-evolving system of teachings that helps us to understand the root cause of life’s problems as well as to find the solutions within us. Guided by certain core principles and practices, individuals embark on the adventure of self-exploration. By walking the Naturality path, we build a healthy identity and discover our Inner Guru to guide us through a complex world. We eventually discover our natural self and are able to live fully.

Kundalini and Chakra Philosophy: Kundalini and Chakra philosophy is the study of Kundalini and the Chakras and their relationship with various types of yogas including Bhakti, Karma and Jnana Yoga, as well as other spiritual paths.

Kundalini Meditations: Meditation is the art and science of relaxation, awareness and expansion of awareness. It is the tool to transcend thoughts and a restless mind resulting in Samadhi or enlightenment. In this program we will be specifically focusing on those meditations which facilitate the awakening of Kundalini and the Chakras.

Kundalini and Chakra Anatomy & Physiology: Learn about the biology of the body and brain and how they are connected to yoga poses, breathing techniques, Kundalini and the Chakras. You will be trained in a scientific understanding of Kundalini and Chakras.

Kundalini, Chakra and Mental Health and Addictions: The awakening of Kundalini and the Chakras has a direct effect on mental health and addictions and can aid in their effective management. Participants will learn how they can empower people with mental health problems and addictions for better management of these issues.


Learn poses, movements, locks, mudras (gestures), seed mantras for Chakras, breathing exercises and meditations.

Meditations: You will learn the theory behind and practice a variety of meditations, including Naturality, Kundalini and Chakras meditations. You will also explore the effects of meditation on the body, emotions, thoughts and how various mind-body health problems can be relieved by meditation practice. Meditation can become holistic medicine without any negative side-effects.

Breathing exercises: Breathing exercises are techniques to regulate your breath. ‎The different types of breathing techniques you will practice include: Alternate nostril breathing, Chakra, Ujjayi, ‎Kapalabhati, ‎Bhastrika or bellow breathing and breath of dissolution.

Chanting: Chanting will focus on seed, tantric and Naturality sounds and mantras which aid in Kundalini and Chakra awakening.

Kriyas: Kriyas are the harmonious combination of movements and chants specific to chakras.

Mudras or gestures: Mudras are hand and limb gestures that facilitate the flow of Kundalini energy.

Bandhas or locks: Bandhas are specific body poses, movement along with breathing exercise that pool energy in our body and direct its flow into specific chakras and channels.

Affirmations: Affirmations are movements and sounds that bring out the core message of a chakra.

Knowledge of basic marma or acupuncture points for healing: Knowledge of marma points will add to your knowledge of energy channels and their connection with the Chakras and nadis or meridians. Specific sujun movements will be practiced to stimulate the marma points.

Besides the above, you will also learn how to become an effective and confident teacher and how to teach students with different physical and mental health conditions, including those one which are induced by spontaneous Kundalini awakening.

Teaching Methods

Experience based education – Experience these practices directly and also look into the source of experience.

Problem based learning – Explore the problem of fear, meaning in life, love, relationship, fulfillment, work and education.

Dialectical dialogue – Explore two poles of an experience or knowledge.

Self-inquiry – Who am I? Enquire into the origin of knowledge, beliefs and motives.

Healthy competition and co-operation – These help in realizing and expressing our potential and bring unique creativity to teachings without us feeling isolated. We have a fear of our own greatness, known as Jonah’s complex, which we have to overcome to experience the best in us.

We become big by becoming bigger, not by making others small – and then by helping others to grow.

Arkaya Healing & Mindfulness Yoga Teacher Training, Vancouver, Canada

Arkaya Healing & Mindfulness Yoga Teacher Training


Having Maitreyi as a teacher and healer is a unique experience for many reasons. You can feel her deep understanding about mind, body and spirit in a very natural, relaxed way and it is easy to access. The tradition of Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda and Hinduism is deeply rooted in her presence, which defines her singular mastery. She also feels like a good friend. She understands how the old wisdom can blend with the current mindset in society, giving students very real tools, in a totally demystified way and out of the usually strict and rigid religious protocols. She’s not only a loving person but also inspires others to be in love and create friendly communities . This in my opinion is the very best contribution that can be done: to help individuals to create healthy spaces and supporting social evolution.

I’m profoundly thankful to get the chance to learn, talk, laugh and feel with her.- Jorge Vigara – Spain, Vancouver

A Self-Awareness, Self-Discovery & Self-Realization Program

Connecting Head, Heart & Hands to the Cosmic Heart

“Yoga is not just about cultivating a flexible body but having the flexibility to realign with ones expanse.”

– Yogacharini Maitreyi, Founder of Arkaya & Lead Guru for the program

Experience a completely different way of learning than just the intellectual in this Arkaya Teacher Training.This self-awareness and enlightened leadership program will help you to build a more conscious relationship with yourself, through:

CLASSICAL YOGA – jathi, kriya, mantra, asana, pranayama, different classical yoga streams, sankalpa, applied yoga philosophy and Yoga psychology.


MULTIDIMENTIONAL HEALING – Heal yourself and others. Includes energy healing.

TRADITIONAL TANTRA – Balancing the masculine and feminine within.

To EMBRACE your Vulnerability and EMBODY your highest potential.



The Arkaya Yoga, Mindfulness and Healing Teacher Training is steeped in Classical Yoga, the Siddha mystical traditions of south India and traditional Tantric practices that help reconnect to life. Yogacharini Maitreyi – founder of Arkaya and lead guru for the program – has been immersed in the yogic life since her childhood in India and is also certified formally. In India, she has received titles like Yoga chemmal (expert). She has shared the deeper dimensions of Yoga for two decades in India and around the world.

Traditional Tantra is the way and alchemy of the heart. It is a channeling and refinement of emotions, impulses and drives through purification tools which lead into lightness and joy. You will be balancing the Shiva (masculine/consciousness principle) and Shakthi (feminine/power principle) within and aligning with the bliss field. This will automatically allow for traumas to be cleared, old unhealthy habits to be dissolved and to build a strong foundation of resilience, ease and grace.


Practical Details

Please Note: Applications open in November 2018. Those invited into the program will have an opportunity to pay an earlybird rate before February 1st, 2019. In order to maintain quality and individual attention, this will be a small group with a maximum of 12-14 students so we expect it to fill up quite quickly.

The program begins in July 2019.

Questions? Please email infoarkaya@gmail.com



1. You will experience the difference between yoga exercise and yoga. You will absorb the true implications and benefits of the yogic path.

2. You tap into effortless effort while seeing how the yoga class is a structure for life.

3. Arkaya yoga allows you to celebrate life in all its glory and tap into your childlike mirth and goodness. Many positive and subtle paradigm shifts will occur.

4. Become sensitive to prana or chi or life force and learn to heal yourself and others.

5. You will learn in a guru tradition which is how yoga has traditionally been imbibed. The guru is a channel in guiding you to re-parent yourself.

6. A transformative environment and practices. This helps you to understand and align with the different dimensions you exist in. This increases your self worth infinitely and will reflect in all areas of your life.

7. You attune to access the great wisdom field and learn to keep that connection. This allows you to expand consciousness and download solutions to life’s challenges.

8. You will use and properly apply various classical tools like mantra, jathi, kriya, asana, mudra, pranayama and sankalpa to discover and reconnect to your deeper dimensions.

9. Rare practices and principles for deep subconscious cleansing which are subtle yet powerful. This may bring to the surface unresolved traumas, suppressed emotions and darkness that some may find confusing and painful. This can cause you to want to run away from the discomfort or project the inner struggle onto those around you if you are not aware. When you clear it you will find a new layer of lightness and ease in your system and be free of that layer of limitation.

10. You will learn the value of balancing the root and second chakras. This builds commitment. When you do this you can clear and dissolve traumas. This will happen in a safe, gentle, down to earth space. It is important to be aware that self judgements, internal enmeshment or armouring can impede this process. This clearing which fully allows you to embody your highest potential is the greatest service you can do for yourself as well as the world.

11. Experience the value of consciously slowing down, synchronizing and synthesizing to speed up your evolution.

12. You will not only learn about the classical yogic tools but also how to apply them to become more connected with yourself and life. This will balance and enhance all areas of your life, including relationships, work, leadership skills and your grounding in the material word.

13. You will be ready to teach yoga with an understanding of the foundational principles and the deeper implications of this life-path.

This program is essentially a SELF AWARENESS program which enables your Light, lightness and joy to shine through by giving you a structure and technology for evolution.

“Many of us build a tall building without building a strong and stable foundation and wonder why life, be it relationships or work crashes at the smallest disturbance or we live our entire lives walking on eggshells. When things crumble, I take it as an opportunity to go back to the foundation. That is what real yoga teaches us, to go back to the foundation again and again and not be afraid to build a stronger sense of inner security and being.”

– Yogacharini Maitreyi, Founder of Arkaya & Lead Guru for the program

Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” — Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medicine Emeritus Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine).

Modern research about mindfulness and meditation shows that over time and with regular practice, mindfulness offers significant benefits to people including less stress, less anxiety, greater focus, calm and happiness.

“NZ Mental Health Foundation mental health promoter Grant Rix says mindfulness has been shown to benefit our brains to such an extent that we can feel calmer, more aware, have an increased ability to focus and concentrate, remember things better and feel happier.” — NZ Mental Health Foundation Press Release July 2012


With regular practice and over time, mindfulness and meditation can offer the following benefits.

Reduced stress and anxiety

Improved sleeping patterns

Increased relaxation

Greater self-awareness and emotional intelligence

Deeper levels of self-acceptance and self-love

“Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex…This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. …The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.” — Psychology Today


Many studies show that with regular practice and over time (at least 8 weeks), mindfulness can reduce stress and anxiety. However if you have severe or clinical depression, it is important that you receive specialist medical advice.

The Bhagavad Gita: Yoga is Breaking the Bond with Suffering, Calgary, Canada

The Bhagavad Gita: Yoga is Breaking the Bond with Suffering


The Bhagavad Gita: Yoga is Breaking the Bond with Suffering with Ravi Ravindra

*Location: Parkdale Community Centre, 3512 5th Ave NW (Nifty Fifty’s building)

All spiritual teachings call for a radical transformation of our being, freeing us from our conditioned self, and moving from reaction to response. Suffering which occupies our psyche and body keeps us deeply connected to our past.

Yoga assists a practitioner to become increasingly free of the attachment to suffering and Krishna explicitly says in the Bhagavad Gita that yoga is breaking the bond with suffering.

Join us for this profound evening lecture on the meaning of the sacred writing, The Bhagavad Gita.

This is a rare opportunity to hear international expert and author, Ravi Ravindra explain the meaningful dialogue between Arjuna who is conflicted on the battlefield of life and Krishna who is responding to his despair.

As relevant today as when it was written ages ago, the ‘Gita’ depicts the human struggle of suffering and conscience. A cornerstone of all yoga teachings, the Gita holds definitive wisdom on the meaning of life.

This lecture will give attendees a context for going deeper to explore the teachings of the Gita.

There will be a 30 minute meditation to complete the evening.

Monday, April 15th
5:30pm – 9:00pm
