Online 80-Hour Meditation Teacher Training


A few words about our Curriculum

The Akasha Yoga Academy's 80-hour online meditation teacher training is meticulously designed to build your confidence in meditation. In addition to strengthening your own meditation foundation and experience, we give you the expertise and understanding needed to guide others in their own meditation journey. Adopting a systematic approach, we delve into meditation's intricacies, allowing this ancient practice to unfold its full potential. What sets this course apart is its balanced marriage of theory and hands-on practice, creating a comprehensive learning environment.


Theoretical Understanding of Meditation:

A major segment of this training is devoted to the theoretical understanding of meditation. We provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what truly lies at the heart of meditation. This segment ensures that while students acquire the skills to practice meditation, they also grasp the underlying philosophy, principles, and technicalities to allow them to embark on the teaching journey.


Practical Meditation Experience:

Theoretical knowledge, though vital, is complemented by substantial practical experience. We give you profound meditation practices so you can feel the transformative power of meditation in your own life and experience. But the training doesn’t stop there. Traditional yoga postures, pranayama, and other aspects of yoga complement your meditation journey. Meditation and yoga integrate body, mind, and energy to help us understand the depth and power of sitting in our own true nature. The integration of the art of yoga asana and pranayama adds depth and power to our meditation sessions.


Spiritual Heart Meditation:

At the course's nucleus is the Spiritual Heart Meditation—a potent technique that amalgamates three fundamental elements: heart-centeredness, breath awareness, and self-inquiry and merging. This meditative form is especially significant as it facilitates a deep introspective journey, allowing you to explore the very roots of your existence and realize your quintessential being.

Preparatory States and Exercises:

To make the entry into meditation smoother and more effective, the course introduces you to the meditation science from the foundations. We look at optimal sitting postures, ensuring physical comfort and alignment during meditation sessions. We demystify the often daunting task of managing your mind during meditation. Spiritual Heart Meditation gives you a profound and practical skillset to approach the teaching experience.


Exploration of Other Meditation Traditions:

Recognizing the vast and diverse world of meditation, our training offers an enlightening journey across various traditions. From the Buddhist practices of Vipassana, Tongleng, and modern mindfulness to the rich Indian meditation traditions of Mantra, Yantra, and Kashmiri Shaivism, we give you a panoramic view of the global meditation landscape.


Intersection of Science and Spirituality:

In the age of technological advancement, understanding the science behind spirituality is imperative. This segment delves into the intricate anatomy of the brain, uncovering how it relates to and is influenced by meditation. We explore some modern relaxation technologies, and the curriculum highlights the intriguing correlation between brainwaves and consciousness states. This synthesis of science and spirituality offers a comprehensive view of human consciousness and its potential.


Teaching Methodologies and Community Building:

As the course culminates, We equip you with effective and practical teaching methodologies, ensuring you are well-prepared to guide others on their meditation journey. The training emphasizes community, fostering an environment where questions and discussions are welcomed. With live online meetings and direct access to main teachers, participants are nurtured in a supportive and vibrant community.


This journey with the Akasha Yoga Academy promises not just skill acquisition but a transformation. By the end, you will know meditation from the inside out and be empowered to instruct and inspire others in their journey.

Devdas began his journey in meditation naturally in his young years, just sitting and contemplating in his favorite nature spots.  Eventually, he learned some proper techniques and helped run a series of meditation centers all over India for 12 years.  Meditation should be as natural to human beings as the breath and should be taught so that everyone feels the profound and immediate benefit of regular practice.  Pranayama as a doorway into stillness and mantra meditation are Devdas’ special passions.  By now, Devdas has shared meditation experiences and retreats in North America, South America, Europe, and all over Asia.
