Become a Yogi, a Teacher and a Leader... In 1969, Swami Vishnudevananda, founder of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers, taught the first Yoga Teachers' Training Course (TTC) in the West. Today, this internationally renowned course is taught by his close disciples. Over 27,000 students have graduated from this comprehensive course. In addition to providing teacher trainees with an in-depth knowledge of classic Yoga practices, Swami Vishnu created the TTC as part of his global peace initiative, structuring it in a way that each trainee will undergo a personal transformation and find inner peace. Thus, the TTC empowers graduates to become peaceful, self-controlled leaders and citizens of the world.
During this four-week intensive course, students will integrate daily ashram life with their Yoga training. This course is uniquely designed to provide a firm foundation from which the student will be able to teach others both intuitively and confidently. Strengthen your own Yoga practice through self-discipline and awareness of the nature of body, mind and spirit.
The TTC is open to anyone with a sincere desire for knowledge and personal growth.
Graduates of this course receive certification at the 200 hour level; see also Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Course 500 hours.
