Yoga Learning Program (YLP)

The Yoga Learning Program (YLP) is a sincere seekers alternative to a Teachers Training Program (TTP). It is a life-long learning program!

If you want to teach mathematics can you attend a 200 hour Math Teachers Training course?

Of course not! You probably burst out in laughter at this absurd idea. You need a degree in Mathematics as well as a degree in Education to teach mathematics. 

What about medicine? How can you teach young students who want to be the doctors of tomorrow? Have you heard of a Doctors Teachers Training course? After 200 hours of study you can teach medical students surgery and anatomy! Ridiculous!

Yet, it does not strike most of us that a 200 hour TTP is ridiculous to teach yoga meditation, mantra science and the deeper secrets of life and death, finally leading to Self Realization.

The Yoga Learning Program (YLP) is a life-long learning program for those who want to learn as opposed to those who want to teach. The YLP is for those who are willing to make changes in their own lives before they try to make changes in the lives of others. The YLP is for those who are willing to spend 10-15 years in knowing the concepts of Yoga through direct experience in Yoga Meditation as opposed to superficial understanding of the same. The YLP is for those who are open to the interpretation of Yoga concepts from the perspective of Samaya Tradition as opposed to those who believe they already know everything.

The YLP is an essential pre-requisite for all those interested in 1:1 Mentoring with Radhikaji. You can be part of the YLP without Mentoring, but you cannot have 1:1 Mentoring with Radhikaji without the YLP. 

What is the YLP all about?

There is a general syllabus for all those who want to be part of this program. This is not about intellectual study. The understanding comes from contemplation upon and guidance in these concepts.
