Q: Are the Online Courses self-paced?
A. Yes, you can start the 4 online courses anytime. There are 18 weeks of lessons online. Each week the online course materials are sent out on Wednesday evening. You have a week till the next materials are sent out to you. Sometimes students want more time in between to have more time to practice so we can schedule the materials to be sent every 2 weeks if you prefer. You can practice at your own pace and in your own time. You can repeat the materials and keep practicing long after you’ve gone through the materials once.
When you Register for the full program you’ll automatically be registered for each upcoming online course. If you want to delay or postpone the next course at any time you simply have to email and we’ll adjust to your schedule, as you like. We’re flexible!
You’ll get your certification once you’ve competed all the required courses and assignments.

Q: When and where is the Meditation Retreat?
A: The next scheduled retreat is September 14-28, 2025, to be held in Kullu Valley, The Valley of the Gods, in the Himalayas of India! We’ll spend 2 weeks in Northern India and complete the program. You’ll first spend 2 nights in New Delhi, with a sight-seeing guide, and then 12 nights in the Himalayas with Padma for the meditation retreat.
In the Himalayas, there will be additional wonderful daily outings, hikes and cultural activities every day. You’ll also have up to 6 hours teachings every day with Padma.

If that journey to India is not possible for you, then the retreat component of the Training Program will be offered as 12 private online sessions with Padma.

Full Program Tuition will be minus what you’ve already Paid for Padma’s Online Video Courses! Email Padma for Information.

Q: Will the Retreat be a big group?
A. No, there’ll be not more than 20 persons in the retreat to India, so you’ll get loads of personal time for your own interactions and questions with Padma and Aakaash.

Q: Do I get a private room
A: Everyone will have a lovely single private room with a Balcony looking out on small villages and mountains of the Himalayas! This is included in the price.

Q: What other Resources are available to me?
Extra supportive materials include the Padma Yoga television series. These are available on YouTube and also on the ONETV station on television across Canada.
