Q: Is this a self-paced program?
A. You can start anytime. 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. 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!

Q: When and where is the Certification Retreat, and how much does it cost?
A: The next scheduled retreat is September 14-28, 2025, to be held in the Himalayas of India! We’ll spend 2 weeks in India and complete the program. You’ll spend 2 nights in New Delhi, with a sight-seeing guide, and 12 nights in the Himalayas, with Padma for the meditation retreat.
All details of that India journey will be posted very soon. 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.
The EARLY BIRD FEE for the the 14 days in India PLUS all Tuition fees comes to $6895 CAD.

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. The total for the Online Option (Online Courses plus 12 Online private sessions) is $2870 CAD.

Q: Will the Retreat be a big group?
A. No, there’s are maximum of 15 persons in the retreat to India, so you’ll get loads of personal time for your own interactions and questions with Padma.

Q: What support will I get through the program?
A: While you are following the program, you will be supported by email. We invite you to email your questions – up to once a week. If you want more personal guidance, you can register for private sessions online with Padma. You are encouraged also join other events with Padma, for example, attend live workshops, and live online group classes.
Extra supportive materials such as yoga episodes of the Padma Yoga television series are available on YouTube, and also on the ONETV station on television across Canada.
In India, you’ll have hours every day with Padma. There will be one private meeting also offered just for you.

Q: Are there extra costs for the course materials?
A: No, the tuition of the program includes all your weekly course videos, audios and manuals in pdf form, emailed to you. You’ll have a large collection of writings, and many students print these out for their own study and notes. You’ll receive one guided audio meditation for each week of the courses (18 altogether). You’ll keep these for your own use and to support you always in your personal meditations. You’ll also have access to the video streaming classes on Vimeo for at least 3 months from the week of the class.
