Teachers Training Course Refresher July 6 – 12

 

A TTC REFRESHER: RETURNING TO THE SOURCE

“I have given you all I have with all my heart and love. It is for you to give to others.” Swami Vishnudevananda

Every Sivananda teacher has a story of how, when and why they were called to be a part of Swami Vishnu’s vision of a better, more peaceful world through yoga.

Come reunite to reignite the fire lit when you took TTC!

Join us at the Yoga Camp this summer for six unforgettable days that will bring you back in time to the excitement, the depth, the joy and the tradition of your practice. Program will be led by Swami Sivadasananda, a senior disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda and Swami Keshavananda.

Swami Sivadasananda is a Yoga Acharya, director of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in Europe, Acharya for South America and a long-time disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda. He was personally trained in Asanas and Pranayama by Swami Vishnudevananda and teaches all aspects of yoga in the International Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Courses worldwide. He is known for his inspiring and relaxed teaching methods in asanas and pranayama.
