In the 1940s Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, Himalayas promoted a yoga of synthesis. He advocated blending karma, bhakti, jnana, raja, and hatha yogas into a comprehensive and integral system which would endow the practitioner with the all-around development of a healthy head, heart, and hand. In today’s branding of timeless yogas, it has become well known worldwide as ‘Sivananda Yoga’.
Sivananda’s disciples spread around the world. In 1957 he told a young Swami Vishnudevananda to go to the west with the words, “People are waiting”.  Swamiji set out and began teaching the fundamentals of health and happiness through inner yogic discipline. After an awakening vision in 1969, he established a Yoga Teachers Training Course. His tireless efforts in turning the soil and planting seeds have been hugely influential in the modern yoga movement. In turn, Swamiji’s students have continued spreading these teachings in ashrams, centers, homes and families, workplaces and professions across the world.
Courses are conducted in a residential ashram environment. Study, practice, absorb, and learn to teach a traditional and comprehensive system involving all aspects of yogic practices. Philosophical and physiological disciplines are included. Successful participants receive certification. The daily program includes silent meditation, kirtan, classes and discussions, two vegetarian meals, seva and study time. Trainees are from around the world. Uniforms, accommodations, books, and a manual are included. Click here to learn more and register.
