Sampoorna yoga (yoga of fullness) is the fruit of Yogi Haris tireless striving for perfection in his practice and teaching. It is the yoga of fullness that intelligently integrates Hatha, Raja, Karma, Bhakti, Jnana, and Nada yoga to purify and harmonize all aspects of the human personality so that the light of the soul shines forth in its Divine splendour. His approach is deep, simple and practical, and helps people from every background to live a richer, happier life based on lasting yogic values. The basic teaching is that health, peace, and joy are already within you. They are your birthright.
Sampoorna Yoga can help you to uncover them. Sampoorna Yoga is the step by step process whereby the individual comes to know his true nature as divine, or, as Paramguru Swami Sivananda says, the radiant immortal self. Sampoorna Yoga, developed by Yogi Hari in his many years of practising and teaching yoga, has been inspired by the teachings of Swami Sivananda and his disciples, Swami Vishnu-Devananda and Swami Nada-Brahmananda. This priceless gem of Sampoorna yoga has evolved through the harmonious and intelligent integration of Hatha, Raja, Bhakti, Jnana, Karma, and Nada Yoga to mould a harmonious and balanced personality. It is now offered to earnest students of self-discovery, through the ancient system of living and studying with the master. -Why a residential program? The most effective way of learning and teaching is from direct experience.
This is the traditional teaching where you will inherit the fruits of the wisdom of the rishis from ancient times to the present day in the Sivananda lineage. During the programs, you live in close contact with your teacher. You will have the privilege to study with Shri Yogi Hari, an adept yogi. Away from the distractions of the home environment, everyday responsibilities, business and appointments, you will be amazed at how focused and attentive your mind will be to absorb this knowledge. In Yogi Haris Ashram you will live each moment of the program with awareness, bringing about growth and transformation.
For over fifteen years, this training has cost 3,000 USD in line with most Yoga Teacher Training Courses currently offered. However, after teaching Yoga for over 40 years, Shri Yogi Hari decided to offer his world-renowned Yoga Teacher Training Course at a discounted rate to make Yoga training affordable.
Since Shri Yogi Hari began teaching Yoga, it has always been his desire to teach for free. But because the ashram is not supported by any organization or trust, the fees that students provide cover basic expenses, ashram maintenance, and organizational costs.
Even though the training is offered at a discount, this does not mean it is lacking in substance. In the presence of a self-realized master, Shri Yogi Hari, you will absorb more during this two-week training than you would learn at any other Yoga Teacher Training Course in the world.
Halfway through the two weeks, we take an excursion to beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach for sunrise meditation, yoga, and brunch. Around noon, we return to the ashram, but you are welcome to spend the rest of the afternoon on your own and arrange your own return transportation.
Fresh, organic coconuts and sugar cane juice are for sale for your personal enjoyment!

Shri Yogi Hari is a master of Sampoorna yoga (yoga of fullness). He is well-known and respected around the world as an exceptionally inspiring teacher and guru. At the age of 22, he was labeled as a medicated incurable. By the grace of God, he was introduced to yoga and he knew right away that this was what he should be living and be practicing in his life. For eight years, he practiced with intense dedication and, in that time, he transformed his whole body into a state of perfect health.
