I just returned after spending 30 days in Rishikesh India. I was there for a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training run by the Nada School of Yoga.
The Nada school is a very traditional and authentic school of kundalini yoga, which also involves the study of music.
In my life, I have never held any formal credential… but now I am very proud to say that I earned a certificate from the Nada school, and am officially a teacher of Kundalini Yoga!!
Check it out:
While there, I also had the opportunity to learn how to play the harmonium, and begin leading ecstatic kirtan. (One of the goals of the Nada school is to help students learn to “find their authentic voice” as an individuated expression of the energy of creation, and I definitely feel like I am doing that. )
I felt very honored to present as a student of the Lightning Path to the teachers at the Nada school. The teachers there are definitely yogis [i.e. people with very, very high CQ’s ], and it was one of the true honors of my life when they initially interacted with me, and then accepted me as a spiritual contemporary.
They say one of the blessings of yoga is the community of yogis you meet when you engage with it, and I have to admit that I believe that as well. The group of people I studied with became more than family to me, and I can count them all as life-long friends. Further, I believe it was the unconditional support and acceptance that we gave each other that really made it possible for each of us to blossom to the extent that we did.
I posted a few pics of my experience on my instagram account which can be viewed here:

Shanti, shanti, shanti, Benjamin!
That is wonderful, what an awesome experience for you. And a very unique perspective, coming from a contemporary background of the Lightning Path and receiving ancient knowledge from a yoga tradition. The integration process was pretty tough for me, I am sure you fared much better! It has integrated by now for me though.
The ashram that I go to is exceptional in their music program. Something to think about if you want to expand your connections through yoga. Make sure you let me know if you end up there! I would love to finally meet someone from the LP😊

My prayer for the cosmos:
May all beings be happy and free
