YOGA TEACHERS' TRAINING COURSE

Swami VishnudevanandaSwami Vishnudevananda was the first yoga master to develop a training programme for yoga teachers in the West. In 1969, he taught the first Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Course (TTC)
in Canada. Since then, over 30,000 certified yoga teachers have completed the Teachers’ Training Course, with another 1,000 graduates each year.

The course is designed to be intensive, immersing the students in a balanced programme of yogic theory and practice for all-round physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development. The goal of this training programme is to produce qualified and inspiring yoga teachers
who are able to draw on their own practice and personal discipline in imparting
the yoga experience to others.

The course instructors
The course is taught by Yoga Acharyas (spiritual teachers) personally trained by Swami Vishnudevananda as well as other experienced Swamis and yoga teachers. They regularly participate in special further training in India to deepen their Yoga knowledge and practice.

Language of instruction
The courses are taught in English. Simultaneous translation into a number of European languages is available.

Certificate
Upon successful completion of the Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Course, the yoga teacher receives a yoga certificate confirming that they have sufficient knowledge and practical experience to teach Hatha Yoga (asanas, pranayama and relaxation) to beginners and intermediate yoga students.

 
The Gurukula system of education
The course is based on India’s traditional Gurukula teaching system, where by direct contact with the teachers, the student’s day-to-day life during the course is transformed into an integrated learning experience.

Yoga teachers are not just trained in the asanas. While asanas are an integral part of classical Hatha Yoga, it is the combination of the asanas with ethical values, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation that enables a comprehensive experience of Hatha Yoga.

Swami Vishnudevananda’s visionary approach to yoga and yoga training has equipped thousands of students with the necessary discipline and yogic skills to enrich their own lives and to help spread these teachings to others.
Curriculum
Asanas, Pranayama, Yoga Nutrition, Kriyas, Meditation, Mantras, Vedanta, Bhagavad Gita,
The Four Yoga Paths, Anatomy and Physiology.
