Home Page

Samyoga Institute, ShivaShakti Synthesis, LLC is committed to providing accessible and affordable Yoga Alliance 200 and 500 hour certified yoga teacher trainings to individuals who have a desire to focus on the therapeutic benefits of yoga and who wish to teach yoga to a specific population. We offer a sanctuary for inner exploration and healing of the whole person, body, mind and spirit. Whether you're new to yoga and looking for ways to develop a personal practice, or a yoga teacher looking for professional development opportunities with nationally accredited teachers,
The Samyoga Institute has just what you're looking for.

This teacher training is offered each year to people living in the Midwest who have a strong desire to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), and who feel, because of family or work responsibilities or financial constraints, they cannot spend the time or money on residential training, or they find they learn better when they have more time to reflect on and integrate the material they are studying, with the support offered from group discussion and a committed mentor.

The Samyoga Institute and ShivaShakti Synthesis, LLC focus on assisting people in creating a structure for understanding their lives and helping them move through their current set of life lessons with grace and equanimity. It is understood that to assist others, we must first experience ourselves. The programs are designed to provide the opportunity for self-inquiry and development so we can authentically offer our gifts to the benefit of all beings.

Samyoga Institute/ShivaShakti Synthesis is also about honoring matter and consciousness, sun and moon, and male and female. History informs us that when one or the other predominates, we, as well as our environment, become woefully imbalanced. In honoring individuality, we find our unity.

Jai Bhagwan!

  • The ayurvedic view of back pain
  • Practices that may exacerbate these conditions.

Ray Long: Anatomy Workshop
  Friday, October 16 (6:30p to 8:30p)
Saturday, October 17 (10:00a to 5:30p)
Sunday, October 18 (9:00a to 1:00p)

Human anatomy and physiology is a vast subject, as is the art of yoga. Nevertheless, combining knowledge from both fields is extremely beneficial to the yoga practitioner. Athletes can improve their performance and experience fewer injuries through a basic understanding of their musculoskeletal system. Similarly, yoga practitioners can benefit from the application of Western science to their practice development.

Join Ray Long and Chris Macivor for a weekend journey into the body. This workshop is not just about anatomy and yoga, but about the inter-connectiveness within our body. This year, Ray Long will be introducing more therapeutic applications to his practice and will have even more cutting edge technology through which to gain wisdom and understanding about the amazing body and yoga.

We hope you will join us for this experience. Come prepared to practice.
