Meditation Yoga Teacher Training
Meditation Yoga Teacher Training
Meditation is the art of stilling our mental and emotional turbulence.
In its simplest application, it can be used for relaxation and stress reduction, and bring us to an awareness of the necessary interconnection between our minds and bodies. Meditation can help us manage our physical and emotional pain and give us a tool to use to cope with the apparent disharmony in our lives.
At a deeper level, meditation can help us to release emotional blockages. It can help us to face and work through our pain, and bring healing to the heart and body. This healing allows us to open the heart and integrate our spiritual nature with our mind, our emotions and our body.
When our mind and emotions are balanced and harmonized, then we have access to our true inner spiritual nature. We begin to have a healthy appreciation for our life and the lives of others. Our world is seen through new eyes, and we can start to perceive the interconnection and interdependence of all creation.
In this program, you’ll learn to transform old habits, move forward in your life, trust in Universe and acquire the skills to be a Spiritual Leader to help others.
This is a unique 10-month 150-hour in-depth and comprehensive training program where you’ll learn to assist others to grow and develop their personal spiritual journey and learn how to be an instrument of the Divine. The core 130 contact hours provides an experiential exploration of meditation, mysticism, philosophy and spiritual lifestyle training. The additional 20 non-contact hours provide an opportunity to experience compassionate service.

What We Offer
Our lead trainer’s spiritual journey began in 1972 and has extensive degrees specializing in religion studies. He has been teaching meditation for almost 20 years now, and we’re honoured to have him run it in our studio.
The training is made up of weekly meditation classes and weekend modules so you can digest the information and see true transformation. Detailed notes and years of knowledge are provided to students.
This training has many years under its belt, which means sessions are continuously improved, to deliver you exceptional content. Various meditation styles and philosophies are incorporated to give you the highest standard of education and knowledge.
My spiritual journey began in 1972 when I met my guru Ramakrishna Ananda while traveling through Southern California. After studying with him for 5 months, I received my spiritual name Vishnu Das (servant of the preserving aspect of the Divine). From this point forward, I have dedicated my life to personal spiritual unfoldment.
My interest in spiritual development fueled an enthusiasm for world mysticism. This led me to study Comparative Religions at York University and California State University Fullerton. After completing my Honours Degree in Comparative Religions, I continued my academic studies and received my Master’s degree from McMaster University in Sanskrit and Hindu Religious History, with a minor in Christian Studies.
Since 1998 I have been facilitating meditation classes and workshops in various parts of Ontario and Vancouver, BC. My personal practice and coursework incorporate a blend of meditations drawn from a variety of religious and spiritual traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity.
