Focus More, Stress Less
Meditation is well-known today for its mental, emotional, and even physical benefits:
It helps us to relax, deal with stress, focus more intensely and for longer periods of time, and become fully present in every moment.
But many quit before they experience these results – often because they don’t know how to measure their progress in meditation, or the effects in daily life.
This course will teach you a step-by-step system for getting real, long-lasting results with meditation – so you can experience the life-changing power of meditation, when practiced properly!
Systematic Training For Real Results
This course goes deeper than what you’ll find in most apps & guided meditations, so you can learn:
- How to focus for longer periods of time – so you can improve your work, studies, and live a more focused life
- How to eliminate stress & anxiety – learn how to deal with unwanted thoughts & emotions, and gradually eliminate mental/emotional agitation with perseverant practice
- How to optimize the mind & body for better meditation – including various yoga asanas & concentration exercises to create an ideal state for meditation
- How to measure & track your progress over time – so you know the practice is clearly working
- Why most people fail in meditation – and how to avoid these mistakes to ensure your time spent meditating is worth it!
The benefits of long-term practice include:
More mental energy
Every thought consumes energy, and an over-active mind leaves you feeling fatigued and tired.
Meditation helps you learn how to turn the mind off when it’s not needed, so all of that energy can be put to better use!
Increased emotional intimacy
An overactive mind prevents you from feeling centered, stable, and fully present.
Meditation brings you in touch with the deepest part of yourself, into a state of pure presence and being, from where you can also connect profoundly with others.
Clarity & efficiency in action
Meditation develops the ability to decide and stick to one path of action.
Over time, it helps to remove “self-sabotage” – contradictory thoughts, emotions, and tendencies that pull you in different directions.
Deeper sleep & relaxation
With increased self-awareness, meditation helps you to identify when and in what way you need to relax & regenerate.
You may also experience deeper sleep, and will be able to quiet the mind in order to fall asleep more quickly.
This course is for you if…
You want to access the full potential of your mind & consciousness
Meditation is often called “the royal path” for its ability to rapidly develop mental focus, clarity and intelligence.
It helps you to learn faster, increase focus in all actions, and become more productive & efficient in every area of life!
You want to eliminate stress & restore balance in your life
Stress is most often caused by uncontrolled mental agitation & unconsciously amplified emotions.
Through practice we increase self-awareness on the physical body, thoughts, and emotions. We become more aware of the sources of stress, and learn how to eliminate them and restore balance – mentally, emotionally, and even physically.
You are interested in meditation as a spiritual path
Meditation will help you to connect to the deepest center of your being, and find the answers to existential questions such as “who am I?” and “What is the meaning of life?”
Perseverant practice leads to the experience of states of cosmic consciousness (Samadhi) and the revelation of who you truly are, beyond the body and mind – what the yogic tradition calls the Supreme Self, Atman.
Meditation classes are 2 hours – including 80 minutes of practice & 40 minutes of theory.
There are 46-48 classes in a year – 1 per week. Classes pause in August and resume in September each year.
New students must start in Year 1. Skipping years is not allowed, because the later years build upon the foundations set in earlier years.
Each class includes a practice session of approx. 80 minutes and consists of 3 phases:
1. Initial awareness & warming-up exercises
The practice begins with an initial phase of awareness and warming up, which activates the beneficial subtle energies (both psychic and mental) that exist within your being.
2. YOGA techniques selected for facilitating meditation
Practice can include asanas, pranayama, concentration exercises, meditation, and other techniques taught in the course.
It always ends with the complete yogic relaxation to create an ideal state for meditation.
3. Mental training exercises & meditation
Various exercises will be given to help students discover & develop the mechanisms of the mind and consciousness.
The first year involves learning the basic mechanisms of the mind, mental concentration and purification techniques, and Patanjali’s 8 stages for obtaining success in meditation.
The first year also includes an initiation into Laya Yoga – a highly efficient meditation technique using the subtle sound of a secret mantra.
Later years include theory on advanced notions on the mechanisms of consciousness, secrets to success in long meditation, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I start in Year 2 or higher if I have previous experience with meditation?
No – all students must start in Year 1 because there is a specific foundation formed in the first year of this course, which is not available anywhere else.
Even if you have experience with meditation we highly recommend keeping an open attitude towards learning everything from the beginning and remind you of the ancient proverb that “realizing that you don’t know anything is the first step towards real knowledge”.
We are confident that you will soon discover that there are many valuable things in the course which could be a revelation even if you have practiced meditation for many years!
How long is this course open?
Year 1 courses are open for enrollment until the Laya Yoga initiation (usually in April).
After this exceptional initiation is given, the course closes to newcomers.
Those who are interested in joining the courses after April will then have to wait until the next Year 1 courses are open in September.
