Teacher Training Courses
Our world today, has a lot of spiritual teachers but lacks real masters. School of Santhi’s Yoga Teacher Training courses aims at reforming serious spiritual seekers into masters of yoga. Santhi has carefully designed this programme to aid in one’s complete transformation in accordance with the ancient Gurukula System. The salient feature of this age-old system is the total involvement of the Master in imparting knowledge to his disciples in an atmosphere of love and compassion.
Our teacher training courses are not just restricted to a set of exercises/asanas for physical well-being. They deal with the practical application of ancient wisdom – Raja Yoga, Kundalini yoga, Swara yoga, Jnana Yoga, Samkhya philosophy, Patanjali’s Yoga sutra etc.. for a better understanding of the functioning of the body and mind.
To ensure personal attention to all, we facilitate the courses in small groups. Chosen people from all over the world come to us for learning this art of transformation and they in turn propose this science to their students.
The subjects are taught in three different levels – 900 hours in total:

Satsang is a combination of two words, Sat and Sang. ‘Sat’ means essence. ‘Sang’ means meeting and hence Satsang means meeting with the essence.
“ Satsangatve nisangatwam, Nisangatwe nirmohatwam, Nirmohatwe niscala tatwam, Nischala tatwe Jeevan mukti! ”
“Satsang leads to detachment, Detachment leads to a state of no desire, State of no desire leads to the stillness of mind, Stillness of mind leads to liberation”
The purpose of Satsang is to stop the mind and remain in oneness with the inner essence. Generally, Satsangs are discourse sessions; the Master talks on spiritual subjects, narrates stories of Gods, sings devotional songs and the listeners in turn slowly melt into the satsang forgetting their chattering mind.
The uniqueness of Satsang with Santhi is that he starts the session with meditation. In the guided meditation he brings the participants into a state of deep relaxation. He leads them to stillness; allows them to relax with their inner witness thus offering a possibility to reach a state very close to Samadhi. He further continues the session with a discourse. The subjects are always centered around spirituality and transformation.
Santhi’s enlightening discourses are life transforming. He inspires his listeners to go for inner exploration and realization. The session usually ends with a question answer session where Santhi guides one into finding answers to his/her questions.
