The four-week Shakti Spirit ® Teacher Training Course (SSTTC) fee, including deposit, is $2600 USD.
Previous completion of a Mystical Dance® Workshop intensive or Tantra or Yoga intensive specifically with Monika Nataraj entitles a SSTTC participant to a $150 USD discount. (Only one $150 USD discount applies regardless of the number of intensive workshops with Monika.) Please check with Monika if you are not sure whether a previous course that you attended qualifies.
Agama Yoga certified teachers are also eligible for a further $150 USD discount. Therefore, Agama Yoga teachers who have also attended an intensive workshop with Monika would be eligible for $300 USD total discount. If you are a certified Mystical Dance ® teacher who has completed the 200-hour Mystical Dance TTC in Thailand with Monika, and would like to attend the SSTTC, a flat rate of $1800 USD is extended to you with no further discounts.
The tuition fee does not include meals or accommodation, but these can be arranged easily upon arrival. For more information about accommodation (including resort recommendations), travel tips, visa information and details, information about food and local attractions, etc., please refer to the Agama Yoga FAQ.
It is worth noting that this course fee is either on par with or below market rate for other, similar women’s intensive programs offered in Asia and the West. In addition, the course teachings of the Shakti Spirit® Teacher Training Course – due to their uniqueness in scope and length and their recognition on the world map of women’s empowerment – already have a great deal of intrinsic value which participants can take with them to their own communities. The potential for these types of classes and workshops is growing.
Program Acceptance and Deposit to Hold Reservation
Every SSTTC applicant must submit a deposit in the amount of $300 alongside her application, in order to be considered for acceptance to the program. This deposit must be made on the event booking page.
