Level I Online Meditation Teacher Training 2024/25

Our Level I Online Meditation Teacher Training is intended for yoga teachers, coaches, nurses, social workers, therapists, health professionals and all seekers of inner peace and fulfillment.

If you recognize the value and the multi-dimensional benefits of Meditation, this Online Meditation Teacher Training will allow you to acquire the expertise to skillfully teach Meditation to groups and individuals. You will learn to inspire others who want to discover its infinite power, while developing and deepening your own practice. You will come to understand what it means to truly

know that “we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience”, and how this knowledge translates to living our lives and to teaching Meditation.


Level I of our Online Meditation Teacher Training is rooted in Patanjali’s Yog Philosophy. We will cultivate an organic understanding of this essential yogic text that is effortless and joyful. The hidden meaning of the scripture will be revealed through experiential exploration, study, chanting and Meditation.


We welcome students and yoga teachers from all traditions. While some experience with Meditation is preferred, we are happy to welcome motivated beginners.







Level I Online Meditation Teacher Training 2024/25

Level I of Essence of the Himalayas' Online Meditation Teacher Training is structured around three inter-dependent elements to insure a well-rounded learning experience:

Group Classes

A new Online Meditation Teacher Training cycle starts on September 29 2024 We meet one Sunday a month, over a year, from 9:00 am to 1.00 pm EST, in a small group of max. 10 participants.

Online Meditation Teacher Training wit Sampriya, Live from the Himalayas in India | Essence of the Himalayas, The School of Meditation and Oneness

Each member of the group works from home, our means of connection being a group video-call over the Internet. Meeting in cyber-space is a symbol and a metaphor for the invisible interconnected space beyond time and geography that we will learn to call our own in Meditation. You will experience first hand that the apparent geographic distance will become, in fact, a tangible experience of the ability to meet in the Space.

Each month we address a specific topic pertaining to the science of Meditation, yoga philosophy, teaching skills and methodology. Every session includes ample practice time, always followed by a Q&A to deepen each one’s ability to express and articulate the subtle experiences and deep dimensions of Meditation.


For the first months of the Online Meditation Teacher Training, each participant chooses a “buddy” in the group with whom s/he will practice in between our monthly sessions. As your knowledge and skills increase, you will be asked to teach one or more students among friends or family for Practicum classes held in between our monthly sessions. This allows you to test your abilities and develop your questions for the group sessions. 

Teaching Supervision

The one-on-one Teaching Supervision is your individual time with Sampriya during your Online Meditation Teacher Training. It offers a forum for your personal inquiry and questions. Its design is to help you identify and strengthen your own unique style and pinpoint hidden patterns that may hold you back. In many people there is a deep-seated unease at the idea of speaking in public that has to do with sanskaars (memories) we carry of being either rejected, ridiculed or punished for standing up for what we know. The one-on-one Teaching Supervision is a chance to address and overcome these issues while taking into account your personal history and individual talents. It is also an opportunity to learn the art of teaching from someone who has many years of experience in communicating with audiences of all ages and cultural backgrounds.

What People Say


about Essence of the Himalayas'

Online Meditation Teacher Training

Meditation Teacher Training - Anne Cotellessa

I originally studied with Marie-Lou as part of a yoga teacher training program several years ago and immediately connected to her because her approach to Meditation removed the “meditation mystique” and sense of “doing it all wrong” that I previously experienced when attempting to develop a Meditation practice. Studying with Marie-Lou has had a profound influence on my personal journey and I’m truly grateful.  She has a rare gift! 

There are many Meditation and Mindfulness training programs available, however, when I decided to expand my own knowledge and develop my skills to share Meditation with others, I knew I wanted to study with Marie-Lou. Once you’ve completed Marie-Lou’s Online Meditation Teacher Training I, you will be prepared to apply what you’ve learned to varied populations and formats - individuals, groups, athletes, medical professionals and patients, business people - there are no limits.  I highly recommend this program to both those wishing to deepen their own practice and for teachers who want to hone their skills.
