These programs are designed to deepen psycho-spiritual growth. The program is open to all students for personal growth and professional training. It is an ideal opportunity for professionals such as yoga teachers, massage therapists, psychotherapists and nurses to enhance their effectiveness.

Sri Shyamji Bhatnagar is a master of Naada(Sound) Yoga, Creator of Microchakra Psychology and Founder of InnerTuning® for spiritual development. His international network of students and professionals learn the InnerTuning® practices at centers in USA, Europe & South America. Sri Shyamji  will impart the psychology of the microchakras and techniques to absorb the light from the benevolent chakras. This is InnerTuning® System. Participants will undergo training to preserve the authenticity of the Microchakra Psychology theory and InnerTuning® practices. Each program combines on-site and off-site training.

As the evolution of the human species proceeds, an increasing number of people are becoming aware of the limitations of materialism. They come to know that they are much more than a physical body. They have a vast unexplored network of nonmaterial (spiritual) energies which pervade their physical bodies just as radio waves pervade the “solid” walls of a building.

Chakra Institute offers systematic instruction in developing these spiritual energies through its programs.

Graduates of Spiritual Teacher training and InnerTuning massage conduct InnerTuning workshops.

InnerTuning® Massage is a combination of special techniques for directing energy of the chakras to the head, neck and shoulders accompanied by the subtle sounds. Shyamji has recorded precise sounds which penetrate the microchakras and help to bridge with the subtle body. This invigorates all nerve endings for entire body and creates a balance in two hemispheres of the brain. Innertuning® massage is more powerful than whole body massage due to the experience of the subtle energy flow. Each massage releases long-held tensions in both upper and lower jaws. The whole face feels composed, with a relaxed smile and radiant skin. This radiance may extend throughout the entire body.
