TEACHERS TRAINING COURSE
A four-week intensive course which covers all aspects of yoga in theory and practice.
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 GURUKULA SYSTEM OF EDUCATION
The Sivananda Teachers’ Training Course is only offered in our Ashrams.
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 ‘s the combination of the asanas with ethical values, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation that enables a comprehensive experience of Hatha Yoga.
Asanas, Pranayama, Yoga Nutrition, Kriyas, Meditation, Mantras, Vedanta, Bhagavad Gita, The Four Yoga Paths, Anatomy and Physiology.
