Meditation: Theory & Teaching with Yoganand [34 hrs]

  • Santosha Studio 896 Davis Drive Atlanta, GA 30327 United States (map)

In ancient times, yoga schools had a rich meditation practice that has been lost in many modern traditions. Some yoga schools today turn to Buddhism for meditation if they teach it at all. This program will explore the many stages and techniques of yoga meditation.

We will start with the most ancient forms from which Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain meditation have sprung. After learning these techniques, we will explore how they can be incorporated into a modern practice and taught to our students.

This course is a requirement in the 300-hour Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts certification and/or meets Yoga Alliance continuing education criteria (34bYACEUs)

Yoganand Michael Carroll (E-RYT500) founded Pranakriya Yoga in 2005. He is a Master-Level teacher in the Kripalu Yoga tradition. Through many years of intensive study and practice of Swami Kripalu’s work, Yoganand gained the profound ability to distill and interpret esoteric yoga texts and techniques. After studying with Kripalu Yoga masters in India and America, Yoganand taught at the Kripalu Center for more than 15 years. He then founded Pranakriya Yoga, which he developed from the original teachings of Swami Kripalavandaji and reconfigured to meet the needs of Western yogis in today’s world without detracting from the ancient teachings.

Yoganand serves as the Founder and Dean of Curriculum for the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts, leads trainings and retreats around the country and world and works to keep the history of Tantric Hatha Yoga alive. Students will find that Yoganand teaches from a place of deep experience and learning and that he shares his understanding in ways that allow them to cultivate and experience greater vitality in their own lives. Yoganand is registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT500 level teacher.
