Join the The Center’s Personal Development Program. 


It doesn’t matter how old we are, or how unhappy we find ourselves, or how chaotic our life seems to be, we can train ourselves to become full of physical life, full of mental joy, alive with love and peace, and surrounded by meaning and purpose.

Now, we must not be fooled into believing that this training will not be challenging.  Joy and happiness on all levels will not come instantaneously, without effort.  This is a training program meant for people who truly desire prosperity of body, mind and soul.

This program can start you on the path to becoming a certified yoga teacher, if you so wish. 

You will learn the following:

                --the yoga postures that bring you strength and happiness

                --the breathing methods that bring you in touch with the divine power within you

                --the yogic prayers that bring you to clarity of mind

                --the cleansing practices that remove the obstacles to prosperity and joy

                --the five stages of meditation that brings us to our unconscious world and beyond

                --the lifestyle choices that release stress in our lives

                --the introduction to the deeper dimensions of yoga as presented in the Yoga Sutras

                --the yogic definition of happiness and prosperity

                --the 8 limbs that lead to joy and happiness

                --the breathing that allows you to flow through life with ease and power

                --the energy centers of the body that fuel your drive to success and prosperity

                --the 4 relaxation methods that rejuvenate the body, mind and soul

                --the science of mantras

                --the science of connecting our aches and pains with our unconscious mental                                       thoughts

                --the use of affirmations and energy movement in the body to release and de-rail                                your aches and pains

                --the understanding of yoga philosophy and psychology as it applies to our Western                        thinking
