A unique life transforming program to synchronise with source. This teacher training is a journey in self discovery. Many layers will be released to create a deeper connection with oneself. When one is cleansed one will feel ones light shine through.

The Arkaya Teacher Training will be held as a retreat at the Maitreyi Vedic village two hours from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu in South India. It is a pristine 25 acre organic farm near the mountains.

The Vedic village has also been constructed according to Vaasthu ( an Indian science of working with space and energy)

The Yogic dictum is when one is sick one is toxic.

This toxicity will be released through purification kriyas like the Jyothi Kriyas and various yogic practices

The course will include not just ayurvedic studies but also a diagnosis by an ayurvedic doctor from a long lineage and ayurvedic treatments and panchakarma to cleanse the system.  There will also beabhyanga ( oleation and massage with medicated oils)  with two therapists almost every day plus ayurvedic portions to take internally , room and organic food on a twin sharing basis and homas or fire ceremonies for purification. , Since Maitreyi Vedic village is an eco village it will also include food prepared from the organic farms there.

This program will be taught by Yogacharini Maitreyi

She embraces her humanness as well as kept her focus on her purification. The teachings are an extension of her life and not an intellectual subject. She has absorbed the teaching through her childhood exposure to a yogic life and light beings and studying formally in ashrams as well.

DATES : Nov 30th to Jan 3rd – The numbers will be small ( 8 to 10) to allow for individual attention.




The Arkaya teacher training is very unique as it taps into effortless effort. It enables the participant to integrate and imbibe things rather than just intellectually understand them or simply learn a posture or breathing tool. Ones innate wisdom is tapped into through gentle healing practices and energy work.  This will be in a supportive environment at  Maitreyi Vedic village. There are services to wash clothes ( very nominal cost), have tender coconut water every day ( included in package) and breathe in the pristine air ( free)



1. The Jyothi ( inner illumination practices) Kriyasare a unique set of practices in the Arkaya yoga system . They are a fascinating tool for evolution and release many deep rooted traumas. It builds abundance on many levels.

2. Old unhealthy patterns of thought or behaviour are gently dissolved through the awareness and many mindfulness tools are imbibed.

3. Arkaya Yogic Healing is a process that is taught where not only the body, but the mind can also be aligned into a framework of ease and harmony. This sometimes entails partner work where participants get to support each other in non-verbal ways of healing.

4. Traditional ayurvedic treatments and abhyanga ( oleation or medicated oils are rubbed /massaged into the body to pull out deeply encrusted toxins). These oils will be chosen according to the doctors diagnosis of the persons dosha ( bio-energy/humour and sometimes that which contaminates). Internal herbs and other treatments will also be facilitated.

5. Farm grown organic meals cooked in a sattvic manner will be provided in the retreat centre. Fresh tender coconut water which is rich in electrolytes will be served to rejuvenate the system

6. There will be Homas (sacred fire ceremonies ) conducted for the purpose of purifying old negative vibrations and bringing in peace and prosperity for the environment and all involved. It will be like a great big smudge with lots of smoke due to the medicinal twigs and leaves that are burnt with ghee( clarified butter) along with chants. These chants were heard by the ancient researchers who tuned into universal vibrations that uplift.

7. There will be an option where one can meet the children of Arkaya Foundation in Chennai which is one of the major international airports and where you will most likely leave from. So we travel back to chennai on the 3rd Jan and can meet the children on 4th Sunday

( It is highly recommended that the flight from Coimbatore to Chennai is booked in advance due to the new year and weekend)
