Important
For over fifteen years, this training has cost 4,000 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 three-week training than you would learn at any other Yoga Teacher Training Course in the world.

Excursions
Twice during the three weeks, Yogi Hari’s Ashram will an excursion to beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach for Sunrise Meditation, yoga, and brunch. Around noon, you return to the ashram, but you are welcome to spend the rest of the afternoon on your own and arrange your own return transportation.
