Study classical Ashtanga Yoga, Raja Yoga, Vedanta,
Spiritual Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology

For more than a decade, Yogesh and Shankari have been Students and Teachers of the time-tested, practical and effective teachings of the Vedic Sciences.  Their personal Teachers align with the deep healing lineages of Ramana Maharishi, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (including his teachings expressed by Deepak Chopra), Sri Aurobindo, The Mother and Babaji (through Paramahansa Yogananda).  They have also been blessed to study personally with such modern Ayurvedic Gurus as Dr. Vasant Lad and Dr. Robert Svoboda. Their years of in-depth study and personal guidance from Vamadeva Shastriji (Dr. David Frawley) and Yogini Shambhavi Devi have been deeply tranformational and inspirational, supporting integration of the deeper Teachings into the very essence of their lives and work. 

AT THE CORE is the Canadian affiliate for the American Institute of Vedic Studies, facilitating Dr. David Frawley's Ayurvedic Healing Course and Yoga, Ayurveda, Mantra & Meditation Course with a special additional 200 hours of hand's-on training and support.  We also share training in the Institute's Vedic Astrology wisdom along with the profound Shakti Sadhana and Mantra Meditation practices of the Institute's co-director Yogini Shambhavi Devi.

Our Courses and Certification classes are an immersion in the classical training, study and experience of Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology over many months.  This thoughtful, dedicated and steadfast approach to learning allows the student time, space and support for the Teachings to begin to awaken within them as Personal Healing and Development opportunities.  Only from our own experience and understanding of the knowledge, can our ability to share it in authentic and magical way unfold.
