Are you ready to take your yoga practice to a deeper, more meaningful level? Do you want to teach others about the many positive benefits of classical yoga?

We invite you to the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course:

  • Awaken or deepen your yoga practice
  • Gain a solid foundation in a classical yoga tradition
  • Live a yogic lifestyle, including vegetarian diet and daily practices
  • Experience Karma Yoga, selfless service to a common good
  • Connect with a lineage of peace and healing, passed down by masters.

The TTC began over 40 years ago and is recognized worldwide as a leading yoga training and has graduated more than 26,000 people around the world. Swami Vishnudevananda was the first yogi from India to develop this kind of training program in the West, with the vision to not only develop successful yoga professionals but to also spread peace in the world through them. The TTC is a unique, profoundly transformative, and rewarding 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 strengthen 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 naturally and with confidence.

Join us in the Bahamas and …

  • Live and study in a contemporary ashram for a month
  • Be part of a vibrant international yoga community
  • Experience a rich tapestry of evening events
  • Take sunrise satsang walks on the beach
  • Return home transformed for life.

The TTC provides a fantastic opportunity to awaken or deepen your yoga practice, meet new and interesting people, and be a part of the global yoga community that is growing each day. The best part of all is learning that everything we need is already within us and how the practices can lead us into accessing our gifts and beauty from the inside out. The experience provides a great way to find long lasting happiness, peace, and the ability to share the yogic lifestyle with others.

Graduates of the course receive internationally recognized certification. The TTC is certified by the worldwide Yoga Alliance for the 200 hours standard for Registered Yoga Schools (RYS).
