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.
