ANS Mentee Portal
To become an ANS Trainer
The Mentee program is the portal to the inner school of ANS.
You want to enter the path of an ANS Trainer. Here you will expand your experience of being a teacher, following the footsteps of the masters to practice Guru Yoga. This is no longer about teaching to learn; instead, it is to join the golden chain. If it is in your destiny, the path will unfold step-by-step and you will accomplish the alchemy of self.
This yoga is very abrupt and radical and will require from you total surrender.
We have received access to this Guru Yoga through the relationship to the master. You cannot learn this in books. This is not a project for marketing yoga and trying to impose your charisma on people. To be a spiritual teacher is one of the last incarnations. We want to offer a portal where you can access and have a glimpse of what it means.
You will either come with a teacher training project or you associate with another Trainer who have completed at least 5 training cycles and recommends you.
