In the yogic tradition, the fundamental life force is often referred to as Kundalini Shakti, the Shakti energy which is basically dormant in Muladhara Chakra. Kundalini Yoga aims to awaken Kundalini Shakti and rise her through the central channel, called Sushumna Nadi, to the Crown Chakra. As a Yogi you are aware of the fact, that the successful practice of Kundalini Yoga can dramatically change your life. Ultimately, a full awakening and complete rising of Kundalini leads to enlightenment, so God will.
This is an intense and delicate process and care needs to be taken to purify the body and subtle bodies of the yoga practitioner before entering strong kundalini practices. Therefore, in Agama Yoga students can apply to the Kundalini program after completion of Level 23. This is supposed to prepare the practitioner generally to be very healthy and also enjoy a very good physical fitness and overall a good yogic lifestyle. To ensure this, a personal interview for this program needs to be passed.
Classes will be held 4 hours each, mostly eight times per month. The Kundalini program takes 10 months to learn and practice together and a minimum 6 months of personal tapas are recommended, after that. A Zoom attendance is possible in later months, however, a personal attendance at least during the first 5 weeks is mandatory. This is to ensure the high quality of the transmission in initiation which is imperative for the Kundalini techniques being very strong, too, both on Anamayakosha and Pranamayakosha.
The course includes many practice hours together with a teacher. It also requires a high level of daily personal practice, which is contributing to your success.

We are very happy to provide video recordings for most of our workshops, but there will not be any during the 5 weeks of this Program held in presence in Koh Phangan. Later we strongly recommend attending the classes LIVE and using the videos as support. As the method used for the recordings is Zoom, we don’t guarantee high-quality performance. Recordings are available during the course and for one week after the workshop has finished.
After December 2024, a 6 month tapas of personal practice is advised.
Note: As this is an advanced course, it is possible that Agama might need to change or postpone the date and time of classes, to adapt better to the needs of beginners in Yoga.
Enthusiast of Yoga & Tantra. Doctor of Physics. The desire to understand (and merge) with the Universe, has always been a driving motivation in his life. Born into a German family, he was initially enchanted by the harmonies of music. Subsequently, he studied Western Hermeticism, and worked for numerous years in industries and the field of applied optical science. As the seed of his Soul’s longing for Truth grew stronger, again, he transitioned the dedication of his life. This time, to Yoga & Tantra. By merging his Western Scientific approach with the practical, authentic Spirituality of the East, he feels whole in body, soul and spirit. Practical tantric yoga is a part of his daily routines, through which he enthusiastically enjoys the re-discovery of our mystical true nature.
As a young girl, Bhavani sought secrets of the unknown. She was easily moved to contemplate the deeper meaning of life. Thus, she pursued the mysteries of the forest, stars, and sky. Spending her days in nature, she felt her calling towards a way of life that was very different to the usual.
The tests of youth led her to Tantra as a teen, to embrace her sexuality (which was fragile, and in need of nourishment and healing). Meeting Agama and her Guru Swamiji Vivekananda (2011), was a huge turning point in her life. She transformed, and felt exhilarated, by the profound teachings and tradition of Tantra Yoga.
Additionally, Bhavani is a good and loving mother to a wonderful child, who she gracefully grows up with love, spiritual principles, and wisdom. She has dedicated her life, towards teaching Spirituality, and helping to serve others – so they may evolve on this path. Bhavani is a Senior Teacher of Agama Yoga.
The founder of Agama Yoga, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, or “Swamiji” to his students, is a passionate and dedicated teacher of the authentic lines of Indian and Tibetan Yoga, which are rapidly becoming lost in today’s “spiritual marketplace.”
In 1998, Swami Vivekananda took full sannyasa vows at the Kumbha Mela in India, at which time he was ordained; his diksha guru bestowing upon him his new and famous name, which means discriminating insight.
Although restrained by a modesty that usually prevents him from discussing it, Swamiji has reached high states of spiritual realisation and samadhi. From this place of knowing, he offers a proven path to spiritual accomplishment in well-articulated concepts. He is one of the few Western Tantric Teachers well-versed in Kundalini Yoga and Gnostic Christianity, and he specialises in the intensely spiritual Tantra Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism.
Swamiji’s guidance is felt in many ways at Agama: from in the classroom, presenting Yoga as a living science, based on common sense and joy; to administering various healing techniques, as a practitioner of chiropractic and other healing methods; to lecturing on esoteric Yogic subjects in weekly Satsang; or discussing personal life problems with pupils, possibly in their own language (as he speaks five).
Swamiji inspires by personal example and examples from history, quoting uninterruptedly from scores of ancient texts and spiritual masters – all with a great sense of humour and unmatched character.
Yogita was born and grew up, in Israel. Since a young age, she performed gymnastics, and this gave her a good awareness of the physical body. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education, in 2003. After a long unsuccessful spiritual quest in India, she was blessed to find Agama, in Thailand (2006). Thereafter, she committed herself to the practices whole-heartedly, as that is what her soul was longing for. In 2007, she became an Agama Yoga Teacher, and has since taught in various countries worldwide. Yogita, now, is a Senior Agama Teacher. She has has taken numerous Advanced Initiations, in both Yoga & Tantra (the latter, she was empowered to teach, in 2009). She has dedicated a great deal of her time and energy, into the field of sexual healing, and empowerment in light of spirituality.
Yogita loves to sing, and her voice is one of her greatest gifts. This talent, she uses, to express her devotion to the Divine with Bhakti. Additionally, she has led Bhajan circles for many years. She is extremely passionate about sharing the Tantric Teachings with women. She loves to teach “Complete Femininity”, as it has truly transformed her life, and contributed to her spiritual evolution, as a woman on the Tantric Path.
Trainings in Psycho-Spiritual work over the last nine years, have also greatly influenced her approach to teaching. Teaching Yoga has increased her enthusiasm for Spirituality, and made her a stronger practitioner. Yogita is eternally grateful to Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, who founded this exceptional yoga school and remains its Head Teacher. His generous heart, and dedication to teaching Yoga, have been an endless source of inspiration on her path – as a disciple and teacher herself.
