The Certificate Courses in London

These certificate courses are open to all yoga practitioners and are especially well suited for yoga teachers and people in the health professions. The goal is to transfer these integral personal experiences and the knowledge gained into our daily and professional lives.

The courses will follow the daily schedule of the Sivananda Ashrams:
Yoga classes, Satsangs (group meditation), in-depth workshops, vegetarian meals and participation in the Ashram community life. There will be time to relax, go for walks along the river or visit London for those coming from abroad.

Students enrolled for the course are required to participate in all activities and follow the yogic lifestyle taught at the Centre. Yoga is based on self discipline (Sadhana). It is this discipline that allows one to experience the full benefits of the course while helping to maintain the spiritual energy of the Centre.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of participation stipulating the number of practice/study hours in the course.

The Light of Hatha Yoga
Connecting to the source of power within

Hatha Yoga is the union of the 2 energies of the bodies, prana and apana, resulting in a unified field of consciousness in which complete peace is experienced. Its goal is the actualisation of the human energy potential which will bring about a complete rejuvenation and refinement of the body and the mind. It includes the practices of asana, pranayama, bandha, mudra and mantras and is based on the understanding that prana, the life force, is the invisible principle which is the essence of everything in the universe, including our body and mind.

The course will enable you to experience and understand the depth of hatha yoga, and refresh your approach to your asana, pranayama and meditation practice.

Swami Kailasananda is Yoga Acharya of the Yoga Sivananda Vedanta Centres in England and France. She is a long time disciple of Swami Vishnudevananda and teaches in the Sivananda Yoga Teachers' Training (TTC), Advanced Teachers'Training (ATTC) and Sadhana Intensive courses with clarity, precision and deep insight.
