 Ancient Science of Yoga in its Authentic, Pristine and Purest Form...

Yoga from the Source... 

Dear Blessed and Magnificent Self,

Let me tell you the story of Jessica and Janet....

Jessica and Janet are friends.

Jessica had been going to regular Yoga classes for 2 years. She tried a variety of classes all across the city. She traveled a lot to experience them all and in the process spent a LOT of money. She practiced many different poses, yet did not know any of them in depth.

So it was hard for her to develop a home practice. Even when she practiced at home, she was never confident about doing it right.

On the other hand, Janet attended a 16 Hour Yoga training with Shanthi Yogini. She learned the fundamentals of the Ancient science of Yoga and its goal as given by the Himalayan Masters. Her practices went beyond Yoga poses. She learned powerful techniques to practice at home, even if she had only a few minutes. She transformed into a new being...

When Jessica found out about this, she also signed up for the program.

Do you also want to experience the transformation of Janet? Then read on…

  • Ready to allow Yoga to bring TOTAL freedom in life?
  • Prepared to unlearn what you've known about Yoga and re-learn? .
  • Want to use the tools of Yoga to live to your highest potential?
  • Feel that Yoga is to be practiced as part of life and NOT as an isolated activity?
  • Ready for confident and independent home practice of 2 minute Yoga?
  • Then you are in the right place...

It showed me Yoga BEYOND the poses

The Yoga session with Shanthi was a very holistic and wonderful experience. It showed me Yoga beyond the poses, usually what we associate yoga with. It was explained in great detail not as an instruction. Every Asana was associated with an object. It is a whole new level of thinking. You think you are a different BEING now. It changes the way you do Yoga, the feeling you get afterwards.

The way she has made the syllabus, it is a class that has reached perfection. She has shared some techniques which are gems revealed to us.

In the past I have attended many sessions, but didn’t find anything close to this. Basically the teacher knows the subject in so much detail that when she is sharing it with us, we also feel that there are so many layers beneath this.

The secret to a healthy body and an active mind.

The secret is, that the time you allocate to work on yourself, should be used to simultaneously work on the body as well as the mind.

While every new technique out in the market makes tall promises, and it’s hard to know who or what is really the best for you, the power here is, this is not new. It may be new to you, but it has been TIME-TESTED for thousands of years, using ancient wisdom adapted to modern times. That is why “Yoga in a Weekend” training is going to be the last training program you need for a sustained home Yoga practice for the rest of your life. With the thorough guidance you’ll receive in the live sessions, and the training guide that you’ll receive as bonus, you can easily integrate the practices learned, in your daily life. 

What This Is NOT...

(This Is NOT Your Typical,
One-size-fits-all, Unsafe 
"Yoga Class”)

  • It is NOT a Yoga class filled with posture after posture with NO time for detailed explanation 

  • It is NOT the typical “Copy the Instructor” kind of Yoga class

  • It is NOT the typical class where you never understand why you are doing what you are doing 

  • It is NOT a Yoga class that focuses on the quantity of movements rather than the quality

  • It is NOT a Yoga class that DOES NOT take into consideration your medical condition or physical limitations

  • It is NOT a Yoga class that DOES NOT care to mention safety precautions, and completely ignores mentioning the potential dangers involved in the incorrect use of something as powerful as Yoga 

  • It is NOT just a fitness program in the name of Yoga

Even after doing for 2 - 3 hours, I didn’t feel exhausted

This is the first time I am taking a Yoga session. I was looking for relaxation, stretching exercises, and being able to exercise without strain on my body. Even after doing these and breathing techniques for 2 - 3 hours, I did not feel stressed or thirsty. I didn’t feel exhausted, yet I felt the stretch happening.

Here is What This
Is Really About...

  • It is a mind-body training.

  • It is a training wherein every possible mistake you might make while doing the poses, and how it should be correctly done are learned  so that you have confidence to practice on your own.

  • It is a training wherein subtle points and tips that help you do postures easily and go deeply into them are learned.

  • It is a syllabus-based training, where the lesson progresses in every session.

  • It is a training that goes beyond Yoga poses and covers meditation, life-force mastery techniques, deep relaxation, life style, chant and other aspects of the ancient science of Yoga.

  • It is a training in which you not only gain the confidence to do the practices independently, but also safely, without being dependent on a teacher or a class, which you may NOT receive even after going many times to a typical class.

  • It is a training wherein you learn practices with benefits & application in daily life.

  • It is a training wherein you have opportunity to ask questions for deeper understanding and clarity.

  • It is a training wherein you learn the complete blueprint for holistic health and happiness.

  • It is a training wherein you learn how to attain the real goal of Yoga, namely union within you and with the rest of the universe.


I saw Shanthi making a COMPLEX thing so very SIMPLE.

I’m NOT a person who is practicing Yoga, but it fascinated me. I saw her (Shanthi) making a COMPLEX  thing so very SIMPLE.  I see it being of use to people who want to improve their flexibility, who have other medical problems…develop better range of motion and strengthen themselves. I can see a tremendous Body-Mind-Spirit connection.

Frequently Asked Questions about Yoga-Saaram: Yoga in a Weekend:

NOTE: Though we are calling it  "in a Weekend", it can be done on weekdays too.
How does Yoga-Saaram: Yoga in a Weekend work? +

Shanthi does not conduct group classes in her center.


The ONLY way to learn from Shanthi is to collect a group of your friends and invite Shanthi over.


If you are a company, an association or the head of a group, you may invite Shanthi to offer training to your group.


You take the responsibility to coordinate with your group members and Shanthi to find a day and duration that suits everyone.


There is a flat investment for the entire group training, irrespective of how many are in the group. If there are more people in your group, the total investment can be divided amidst them and it will bring down the investment per person.


You also take the responsibility to figure out and collect the appropriate individual investment for the workshop from your group which would vary based on how many  express interest to join.


No matter how many join, you give the flat group training amount to us as specified below.


Will your training address the group needs? +

Though the Yoga-training is conducted in group setting, it is customized for individual needs. How it is done is, individuals of the group can download an application, fill it out with their specific needs and goals and send it over to us.


Shanthi will go through the forms and ensure that the training includes practices specific to the group needs.

If I learn just in 1 or 2 days, how will I remember everything after the training? +

1. You will receive the training manual for all the exercises, poses and life-force mastery techniques learned. This will have pictures, procedure to do the practices, affirmations, benefits, and limitations. With this, an independent and confident practice is possible.


2.  You will receive the user manual with DOs and DON'Ts for safety and maximum benefits.


3.  You have the option to invest and get videos and audios of everything learned for practicing along. This is totally optional and you can practice even with just the training guide you receive as part of the training.

How far can Shanthi travel for the training? +

Shanthi can travel anywhere. That is not a problem. However, the rates quoted are for travel within 100 miles of Pawtucket, RI. For more than hundred miles, there will be little additional cost which can be discussed when you talk to us.

Won't it be too much to do the training for 4 hours or 8 hours? +

No! It will not be too much, because, we are NOT doing a workout session here. We are going to learn the practices thoroughly which involves, demonstration, explanation, discussion and Q&A for each practice. Additionally, Yoga practices are done slowly without exertion.

Why should I spend 4 to 8 hours in one day with Shanthi when I can attend 8 Yoga classes in a studio for less price? +

You will want to do it, because, we do a syllabus-based training in those 4 to 8 hours. We train you for a confident, independent and real-world-ready Yoga-practice at home without relying on anyone else. We also give you detailed handouts to help in your home practice.


That is why, our training costs more.


Contrary to this, if you attend 8 Yoga classes in a studio, you may get 8 copy-the-instructor classes which do not give you confidence for an independent practice. You become dependent on the person instructing you in such sessions.


Those classes may be inexpensive. What you save in each hour of class, you will make up by going to several classes, yet not understanding the fundamentals of the science of Yoga. Even if you attend 20 such classes, you may not become confident and independent in your practice.

What if my group wants to meet weekly and NOT 4 to 8 hours in one day? +

It is totally possible.  


It is recommended that you arrange first a 2 hour workshop as a sampler for the participants.  Whether the participants decide to continue after that or NOT, it is still a win-win for everyone. The group can still have an independent practice with whatever they have learned in 2 hours.



For those who wish to continue, once a week for at least 90 minutes is recommended. For Shanthi's method of teaching, 60 minutes is too less. 


Also drop-ins are NOT encouraged, as the whole training is syllabus based.  The participants have to commit for the remaining sessions. That is the ONLY way to make every participant independent and confident in their practice.


Since Shanthi prefers workshops in a single day or weekend as she does not have to commit to several weeks of classes, she provides free lunch and snacks for up to 10 people when done in a single day or weekend.

What if I have only a small group of people and this investment won't work for us? +

If you have only a small group, then instead of Shanthi travelling to where you are, your group can travel to RI and meet Shanthi in her center. We can discuss about a discounted investment for your group. Please feel free to contact Shanthi at 401-305-0882 or write to

What if I have more questions that have not been addressed? +

Please feel free to contact Shanthi at 401-305-0882 or write to


What is the investment for Yoga-Saaram for the entire group?

There are billions of people in the world.  They need someone like you to learn to be happy and to teach them how to be happy. Are you ready?

This course is unique, authentic, easy and practical…

Uniqueness: The goal is to make you independent of the teacher (E X P A N D to read more) +
  • You practice affirmations with every pose for maximum benefits
  • You do the posture as Yogic exercise first before holding it
  • Every practice is taught mentioning physical, mental, intellectual, social, as well as spiritual benefits
  • There is a variety with: chant, warm-up exercises, breathing exercises, Yoga postures and proper breathing techniques 
  • Your understanding and experience progresses in every hour of the training
Authenticity: No compromise is made on retaining the essence of Yoga Aasanam. (E X P A N D to read more) +
  • Every movement is done synchronizing it with the in-breath or out-breath. It is completely authentic.
  • The practice is NOT just exercises. The session begins with guided meditation, and ends with guided deep relaxation. You also relax between postures.
  • For every practice, you learn the name in the Yogic language of Samskritam, the word meaning, and why it is named so.
  • Since Yoga means “Union” with everything and everyone around, an authentic practice must provide the condition for realizing this. This training spells out those thoughts to emphasize this universal connection.
  • You are made to observe and share the effect in your body while learning Yogic breathing and other practices
  • You get the basic understanding of Yoga
  • To encourage reverence for all things around, which will ultimately lead to oneness, thoughts on what nature teaches us is shared as relevant to the context, making it totally educational.
Ease: It is not just “Copy the Instructor” kind of training. (E X P A N D to read more) +
  • You learn variations of a practice so that you can do to the extent you can
  • To make it easy for you to do the correct hand and leg position in any practice, the teacher does as a mirror reflection of you, so that you don’t have to figure out which side the teacher does, and which side you have to do.
  • Every practice is taught as an individual unit of 1 or 2 minutes, and repeated at least 2 times over the training so that you can remember it
  •  You are taught the fundamentals in every practice so that you never get confused
Practicality (Integration into Daily Life): Since a healthy and happy life is possible through integrating Yoga into your life, the training has been designed to make it happen. (E X P A N D to read more) +
  • Learning how to do an hour long Yoga practice does not make it practical, because, in the busy life these days, it may be hard to get an hour at a stretch to invest in yourself.
  • So this training teaches you how to snatch 1 or 2 minutes to invest in yourself
  • You learn how to integrate every practice into your busy life
  • In case your body does not allow you to do physical movements on a certain day, or you have less time, you can still do some practice whether it is the 2 minute meditation or 1 minute breathing practice depending on how much time you have.
  • Since every posture is an independent unit, you can choose any posture and do it on your own any time.
  • You can appreciate and practice on your own only if your understanding is thorough. The training is structured to make it possible. Just by looking at the several bullet points above, you can understand the thoroughness of the training.
  • You learn the general Do’s and Don’ts before and during practice for your own safety

It does not matter how many poses we do, it matters how much we understand

KarthikayanThere were some eye opening sessions where I was able to get some answers.

During every posture we learned how the stretch happens, how it interacts with the internal organs, how the blood flows, and what benefits it’s going to give, which is very important when one does yoga. It is helping me to improve my confidence level.

We were able to relate the poses with real time things and get the positive qualities of them. That helps us to feel that we are part of Earth and how we are interrelated and this actually makes us to understand things in a different way. Every posture actually was very complete.

I think this is the right way to learn Yoga. It does not matter how many poses we do, it matters how much we understand and we do.

I came to know A LOT about traditional Yoga today

AmbilyNowadays we hear that Yoga is like aerobics. I came to know a lot about traditional Yoga today. I came looking for flexibility. I learned about breathing exercises and how relaxing they can be. Even though I had learned some of these poses before, I did not know how to do them with the right breathing. Now I know…

Before, I didn't know the reason or science behind the Yoga poses. Now I know...

Phani Krishna PictureI feel very happy I took the initiative to attend. I have taken Yoga classes earlier, some in Germany and some in India, but these classes are different. Before I was doing Yoga poses, but I didn’t know why. I didn’t know the reason or science behind them. These poses I learned before in other Yoga sessions, but I didn’t know the use or how to do it perfectly. Now I know.

Shanthi's Personal Journey ...

Shanthi & Pavitra Top 2

She is the founder of “Yoga for Happiness Academy” which serves thought leaders and leaders-in-the making both online and in person.
