Yoga Teacher Training Course

Advanced Class
The Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course (TTC) began over 40 years ago, is recognized worldwide and has more than 26,000 graduates. Swami Vishnudevananda was the first in the West to develop this kind of training program for yoga teachers with the vision to not only develop successful yoga professionals, but also to spread peace in the world through them.

The TTC is a unique, profoundly transforming and personal experience that is based on the ancient gurukula teaching system which integrates the student’s daily life into the yoga training. For four intense weeks of ashram living, students strenghthen their own yoga practice through self-discipline and awareness of the nature of mind, body and spirit. They also build a firm foundation from which to teach others instinctually and confidently.

Graduates of the course receive internationally recognized certification, Certified by the worldwide Yoga Alliance for the 200 hours standard for Registered Yoga Schools (RYS).

The course is available in many different countries around the world, and in a variety of languages. The closest TTC to Toronto is in Val Morin, Quebec (about 1 hour north of Montreal) and is held every Summer and late Fall.
