What is Yoga Science?

The American Meditation Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization devoted to providing comprehensive training in Yoga Science—the world’s oldest holistic mind/body medicine and the core principle of every spiritual tradition. Yoga is the sacred science that provides proven benefits by facilitating the union of the superconscious mind with the physical, mental and emotional elements of everyday life. Founded in 1996 by Leonard and Jenness Perlmutter, AMI combines ancient Eastern wisdom and modern Western science in a practical, empowering curriculum. The foundation course of this curriculum is AMI MEDITATION.

*Highly Recommended by Tom McCarroll and other Yoga Instructors* AMI MEDITATION: The Foundation Course of Yoga Science. Starts Tues Sept 15 or Sat Sept 26 Details at bit.ly/2GQ7EuM Read more of what Tom has to say about this empowering, life-changing 6-week course: "A little over a decade ago, I spent a glorious month living and studying at Kripalu to obtain my Yoga Teacher Certification. It was a comprehensive and deep curriculum that touched on all eight limbs of yoga, as well as an introduction to the Bhagadvad Gita. As I began teaching, I found myself drawn to ways to deepen my understanding of yoga to help me become a better teacher, but also for deeply personal reasons. As is often the case with these kinds of things, the path to developing this deeper understanding took several interesting twists and turns before a Physician friend of mine introduced me to Lenard Perlmutter (a co-founder of AMI), and I began my studies at AMI with the foundation course “AMI Meditation.” Over the ensuing years I spent many a wonderful evening in the company of fellow seekers, under the loving tutelage of Leonard and Jenness, developing the deeper understanding of the science of Yoga that I hungered for. What I have always appreciated the most about AMI is the reliance on the teacher-to-student relationship and the unbroken lineage extending back to the ancient cave monasteries of India. Leonard and Jenness live their practice more deeply that anyone else I have met, and it is from this experience of their own experiment with Yoga Science that AMI derives its loving, safe, rich, tradition based approach to teaching. I whole heartedly recommend it to Yoga Teachers looking to deepen their own reservoir of knowledge, or to anyone seeking to explore the spiritual path." -- Tom McCarroll, Health Administrator, Yoga Instructor
