PRANA JAGRITI TEACHER TRAINING IN YOGA AND MEDITATION A 4D TEACHER TRAINING WITH KAPIL RAJIV
19 June - 22 August, Soundwill Plaza
Prana Jagriti is “awakening of one’s life energy”. The practice of Yoga and Meditation helps in this awakening.
Correct practice of the techniques requires a proper understanding of the roots of the technique along with its correct execution. Philosophical and practical sides of the disciplines of Yoga and Meditation are linked together and complement each other, and better understanding of one helps the understanding of the other.
This committed and disciplined training programme:
- Gives students a comprehensive grasp of the knowledge and teachings of Yoga and Meditation
- Enlivens the philosophical concepts through relevant practice and experience
With the above purpose, the course is divided into 4 Dimensions:
Yoga Philosophy: Yoga Darshan
This dimension sheds light on the Yogic Vision of the Upanishads and the Vedic Tradition of Yoga covering the key principles and concepts of the knowledge of the Vedas and the Upanishads. It introduces all the different kinds of Yoga through philosophical and practical aspects.
This dimension focuses on Yoga teachings about the mind and its function. Also, practical Yogic ways of managing and controlling the mind with an understanding of the Yogic view of the human mind and personality.
Applied Yogic Science
Yoga as a science of preventive, curative and promotive modality of health and healing. Key principles and concepts of the teachings of Yoga and how they act as agents of health and healing will be explored.
This dimension looks at the practical side of the entire body of Yoga knowledge and introduces a vast array of Yogic practices for health, healing and uplifting.
The 4 Dimensions look at Yoga from a wholistic point of view and explores its application as both an art and a science of the body and mind, as an effective means of health management and therapy, and as a practical technique to uplift and expand our consciousness, harmonising the inner and outer dimensions of our personality.
It is a Teacher Training that provides a comprehensive understanding of Yoga and Meditation and their interconnectedness.

Kapil began his spiritual journey at the age of 14, with an interest to understand and control the mind. As he started experimenting with different techniques of controlling and relaxing the mind, his interest in meditation grew. This interest made him seek out books and his first spiritual readings included books by J. Krishnamurthi and Osho. Considering them his first teachers, Kapil began to practise the teachings of Krishnamurthi and Osho. As his practice grew so did his experience and this made the practice of meditation an integral part of his life.
Kapil completed his formal education in Hotel Management and started working in Hotel Sales. It was during this time that he took a decision to quit a rewarding career in Hotel Management and follow his main interest and passion and systematically study the workings of the human mind and meditation. Kapil completed a Master's in Yoga Psychology with a Gold Medal from the Bihar School of Yoga Munger under the guidance of Paramhamsa Swami Niranjananda Saraswati and other senior monks and teachers. It was there that he received his spiritual name Kapilmurti and was initiated into Karma Sanyas by Paramhamsa Swami Niranjananda Saraswati.
Kapil started teaching Yoga in 2001 in India. In 2010, Kapil joined Pure Yoga and is currently working as a Senior Yoga Instructor. Kapil draws from the timeless teachings of the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita and brings out the psychological relevance of Yoga. When he teaches asanas, Kapil emphasises the universal principles of alignment with an awareness of the breath to access the deeper dimensions of asana practice. His classes are filled with enthusiasm, energy and quiet moments of insight cultivation with a constant remembrance of the ultimate aim of Yoga.

Will I be able to teach right after I graduate from this programme?
Yes. All the course materials taught in this course prepare students with all the foundational knowledge and skills needed to become yoga teachers. Some students take it to deepen their own personal practice, kick-start a life transformational experience, while others do it to immediately start a teaching career. Others who do not want to proceed into teaching immediately would immerse into further trainings. More than half the students from our graduate programmes begin teaching friends, family, moving into part-time teaching in studios and then full-time teaching.
Will I be able to teach at Pure Yoga after graduating from this programme?
PURE Yoga is always open to applications and supports graduates from our programmes. We do have many teachers at PURE Yoga currently that are previous graduates. While we encourage graduates to apply with us, there is never a guarantee of job placement due to availability of openings or space within our studios. However, any graduates that apply with us are kept in our database and are advised if there are openings available.
Will PURE Yoga help with my Yoga Alliance application?
Upon successful graduation of our teacher training programmes, PURE Yoga will send the students a link to where they can apply for the Yoga Alliance certification. Our programmes and our school are Yoga Alliance accredited, meaning that students graduating from our programmes will “automatically” be approved when they apply to Yoga Alliance. From there, students will take their own steps in applying for Yoga Alliance – whether you are applying for 200-hour certification, 500-hour or so forth.
If I miss one day, will I be able to make up for it?
Students undergoing this programme must be fully committed and understand that 100% full attendance is required. They must also be willing to forgo most other personal or professional commitments for the duration of the programme – only with 100% attendance and completion of the course will students receive a certificate and no make-up of work will be given. Should there be any problems with this, students must speak with the faculty prior to the course and only under very special circumstances will it be considered.
Will I receive a certificate after the programme?
Upon successful completion, 100% attendance, and following the code of conduct – students will receive a Certificate of Completion from PURE Yoga for this teacher training programme.
