INDICA Veda Studies chanting teacher training

The tradition of chanting has been passed down through Śruti Parampara over millennia in India. To this day it continues to be a profound practice of expressing devotion, learning and imbibing the teachings of ancient scriptures and an integral part of ritual, meditation and contemplation.

Veda Studies and Indica Yoga are very happy to bring you this Teacher Training Certification Course to skill future teachers through a rigourous selection, training and preparation process which covers both mantras from the Veda as well as the Hindu daily prayer tradition.

Together with the graduates from our first Teacher Training group of 2022-2023, you will become part of a community of teachers that will continue to be supported after the training, through ongoing events and a platform to connect and engage.

Some highlights of this highly structured Teacher Training Course will be an immersion in the tradition I grew up in, watching my mother build a devotional chanting community, sharing my experience studying with The Challakere Brothers – insights, practices, being, committing, practicing & the continuous study. 

Learning to teach mantras from both the Veda as well as the daily prayer Hindu tradition in South India, a strong focus on theory and refinement in chanting, getting organised and skilled to lead chanting classes are some of the key elements of this training.

The intensive teacher training will run online from January 2024 to November 2024. The first information session was held on 18 March. Interested students can have full visibility into the program before applying. Please request a replay in case you weren’t present for this session.

I am very grateful to offer this in collaboration with INDICA Yoga and Center for Consciousness Studies and Inner Transformation (CCSIT) @ INDICA who bring the experience and expertise in the preservation and dissemination of Indic knowledge systems through authentic, immersive and transformative learning experiences.
