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.

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 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

Yoga Nidra is a state of being in which the mind lets go of the external world and turns inward to reflect upon itself. It is a state of deep peace, clarity and acceptance. Yoga Nidra is a specific practice that gradually trains the mind to be able to reach that tranquil space effortlessly. A simple series of restorative postures performed in such a way as to liberate and promote the free flow of gross and subtle movement; Gross movement related to the joints, organs and tissues and subtle movement related to the energetic network / Prana. Working actively with this principle of movement activates the inherent healing and regenerative power. Basic breathing methods encourage optimal breathing patterns and correct poor breathing habits that may either depress or agitate the nervous system, mind and emotions. Basic breathing methods form one of the essential stages of Yoga Nidra and are effective tools for inducing calmness and clarity in any given situation.

Select from 2 different retreat packages:
5 days / 4 nights retreat + accommodation in twin share room: $850

White Tantric Yoga® Toronto, Canada

White Tantric Yoga® Toronto, Canada


About White Tantric Yoga® And MeditationOur minds release 1000 thoughts per wink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. These thoughts become feelings, emotions, desires, multi-realities or fantasies. Instead of mastering our mind, often our mind and thoughts direct or distract us, which can result in impulsive decisions, poor communication and self-imposed stress.

White Tantric Yoga® enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, so you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.

When you see and act on each moment with clarity, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life can change. Your mind, body, and soul can act together as one. This is the path to personal freedom and awareness, and will bring more success to every area of your life.White Tantric Yoga® is a registered trademark of Humanology and Health Science Inc.

For further information: www.whitetantricyoga.com

What To ExpectWhite Tantric Yoga® is done in pairs as a group meditation. You sit facing a partner and follow instructions for meditation given on video by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan. A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate White Tantric Yoga®.Each workshop consists of between six and eight kriyas. A kriya is a meditation incorporating one or all of the following:• a yoga posture (asana)• a breathing technique (pranayam)• a mental focus and/or a mantra• a hand position (mudra)Sometimes the kriyas are accompanied by music. These kriyas vary in length up to sixty-two minutes. There are breaks in between each kriya.The environment is peaceful, and the atmosphere is friendly, supportive, and uplifting. A vegetarian lunch is provided.

HOW IT WORKSEnvision the energy of the universe as both parallel and perpendicular in nature, like a cloth woven together. As a cloth becomes stronger when it is stretched on the diagonal, so the White Tantric Yoga® diagonal, or ‘Z’ energy is stronger. This energy, when directed by the Mahan Tantric, cuts through the blocks that are stuck in the subconscious mind.

Using the diagonal energy, the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan, connects his subtle body to the subtle bodies of the participants through the course facilitator. This works the same way as a worldwide telephone system that relies on satellites and electromagnetic energy in order to connect two parties.White Tantric Yoga® should not be confused with black or red tantric. Those forms of yoga also transform energy, but in a different way and for different purposes. Black tantric directs the energy to manipulate other human beings and red tantric directs the energy solely for sexual purposes.

ABOUT THE MAHAN TANTRICYogi Bhajan became Master of Kundalini Yoga at the age of 16 in his native India. He came to the West in 1968. The authority to be the Mahan Tantric, Master of White Tantric Yoga®, was bestowed on him in 1970.

The practice of White Tantric Yoga®, as with most sacred Eastern wisdom, had previously been a tradition passed on from teacher to student in a mystical and selective way. As a pioneer of the Aquarian Age, Yogi Bhajan decided to open the experience of White Tantric Yoga® to anyone who wanted to commit to the discipline. In 1970 in Los Angeles, for the first time in history,White Tantric Yoga® was taught publicly.

Until 1986, Yogi Bhajan traveled throughout the world presenting as many as thirty workshops each year to thousands of students. In 1987, using his unique abilities as Master, together with modern technology, he began to present White Tantric Yoga® as a video-taped series which has the same effect as when he was physically present. He said the videos would continue to have the same effect when he was no longer in his physical body. This has proven true, and in fact since his passing from his physical body in October, 2004, thousands of students have confirmed that their White Tantric Yoga® experience is one of being in his presence.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?There are no prerequisites for participating in White Tantric Yoga®. Beginners will tune into their internal energies and enjoy a deep and sometimes challenging meditative experience. More advanced meditation practitioners will deepen their experience and make new inroads to their spiritual awareness.
