Raj Yoga for Emotional Wellness and Restoration 100-hour YTT

July 24 – September 27, 2020

With Yogrishi Vishvketu and Yog Sundari (Julia Anastasiou)

$1000 USD


Finding your true Self is a lifelong journey, and every moment presents an opportunity to grow in physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Yoga and Meditation should be accessible to all ages, all body types and all levels of fitness. Raj Yoga with the amazing bhramari in every posture is an innovative style designed by Yogrishi Vishvketu to bring anyone, very simply towards more calm, meditative awareness and integration. This approach unlocks hidden potential by releasing blocked emotions and vibrating the whole being to the cellular level. Teachers, we invite you to open the journey of Raj Yoga and Living Meditation to participants under-served by mainstream Yoga.


With this unique, virtual 100-hour YTT module, you will add this inclusive Yoga style to your teaching services, and learn to tailor Raj Yoga for those who need a very moderate flow, to practice in a chair or even to practice in bed. Raj Yoga classes are specifically designed to support mobility, immune function, respiratory wellness, good quality of sleep, emotional wellness and spiritual inquiry.


You will also study the Bhagavad Gita and several Sutras, learn to teach Beginner Meditation classes and series, lead mini-Yoga Nidra sessions, Raj Yoga for Pregnancy and more!


Diversity in Yoga is important to us, and we want to make this programs truly accessible to you if cost is a barrier to your presence. Please ask us about our Scholarships.

The Opportunity

In line with the aim of accessibility, the course will be provided in an online, interactive format, paced over a two-month period utilising four 3-day weekends from July to September. This is a rare opportunity to participate in a online, 300-hour level program in which the 100-hour module can be counted toward your YTT 500 accreditation.

Join this world-renowned teaching team, Yogrishi Vishvketu and Yog Sundari and Special Guest Teachers David-ji and Prem Robin Campbell, for over 70 hours of Live online teaching and a range of other learning support tools to fully integrate your learning throughout the course. Please note, students who have previously completed the Hatha-Raja YTT 100 module, we encourage you to contact us and discuss how segments of this module may be attended so you can make your Raj Yoga classes even more accessible.

The course will explore the last four limbs of Patanjali’s eight-fold path: pratyahara, dharana, dhyana and Samadhi through theory and practical applications in concentration, meditation and free awareness. Participants will be guided in learning to teach meditation in incremental steps. In this module, you will also learn about the wonders of the Bhramari Pranayama and how to design and teach a Raj Yoga class, including a full-length Raj Yoga practicum experience. We will also explore Yogic anatomy and the five koshas map of the subtle body and how it informs each aspect of our practice. This course qualifies as one of our three modules toward the 500-hour RYT designation.
