Why chakrananda yoga certification?

I have been practicing yoga for over 22 years and teaching for the past 15 in a way that gives students knowledge and understanding of themselves through the chakra system. What I've found is that our chakras are related to almost all our emotional, physical, and mental states so when we are working through them to be in balance, the rest of our life is as well. ChakrAnanda...

  • Incorporates yoga specific practices of asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, and relaxation with focus on chakras for deeper level energetic alignment.
  • Is about bringing the entire human system into a state of Bliss (Ananda) through one or a combination of yoga practice elements
  • Works on balancing all 8 main chakras (7 + the Auric Field) for a sense of healing and empowerment
  • Goes beyond just asana practice for a deeper understanding of how our past affects us, being present through the body, and having high self-awareness to create a more balanced lifestyle
  • Is easy to understand and gives students greater knowledge as Certified Yoga Teachers to share with students in their own unique way
  • Training is an upbeat and in-depth time spent together that is both sacred and celebratory, in other words, boring is not my jam
  • Teaching style that can be as gentle or as challenging as you like to accommodate and appeal to all levels of practitioners
  • Self-discovery journey that gives students a better understanding of who they are, their emotional and energetic connection, and the physical aspects of themselves in relation to their spiritual body. 
  • A flow style that leaves the body, mind, and spirit in balance to feel both uplifted and at peace
  • Expert teachers guiding you through the process with over 40 years of combined practice and 30 years of teaching yoga

What Others Say


ChakrAnanda is so unique and encompasses a variety of yoga styles that leaves you feeling strong, centered, and empowered. Lakshmi Dev helps you work through the chakras in a way that is healing and opens you in a way that I've never felt so energetically in alignment. It's as if my energy flows beautifully as I work out what needs released and come into a feeling of bliss. It's easy to follow, simple to modify, and brings me into a true state of unconditional self-acceptance that I've not experienced in any other yoga class.

Lakshmi Dev’s ChakrAnanada yoga is AMAZING. There’s such a beautiful combination of the spiritual side of yoga like the breath-work, chakra alignment, and mantra but then also the practical physical practice of yoga that leads to such great self-awareness leading to feeling both grounded and expanded.  I highly recommend any of her yoga classes or teacher training because you will get such a well rounded powerful emotional, spiritual, and physical practice that you'll absolutely leave transformed or be the teacher that helps others transform.

ChakrAnanda is my absolute favorite style of yoga to practice and Lakshmi Dev my favorite teacher, of the hundreds of classes & dozens of instructors I've experienced in the past 20 years. Thanks to her intimate knowledge of the Chakra system throughout the flow, you leave class feeling empowered, inspired, and connected, and just plain happy. Lakshmi Dev's classes are the perfect balance fo laughing, learning, feeling the benefits of yoga, being invigorated and having FUN. Her teaching is truly a gift and I'm grateful for the expansion she has brought into my life.

Lakshmi Dev Bowen

I have been teaching yoga for 15 years and the journey that started as curiosity of a way for physical health, has become my life love. When I began practicing yoga over 20 years ago, I was in a tough place with body acceptance and was also seeking spiritual connection. What I didn't know, was that yoga would change my life forever with helping me overcome mental struggles, heal a painful past, and find my voice again while uplifting others and giving me amazing opportunities in the process. Your journey may look very different than mine,  but if you are passionate about healing arts, ChakrAnanda Yoga Teacher Training is the perfect way to begin teaching and/or dive deep into a beautiful and transformative yoga immersion. ~ E-RYT 200 HR, HATHA, VINYASA & KUNDALINI YOGA INSTRUCTOR, REIKI MASTER, EMPOWERMENT MENTOR
