The Level 2 Yoga Teacher Training Course (YTTC-II) is a four-week course designed for graduates of the Yoga Teachers Training Course (YTTC-I). The course builds on the foundation of YTTC-I allowing students to deepen their spiritual knowledge with intense daily practice of asanas, pranayama and bandhas. This course allows yoga teachers to deepen their sadhana (spiritual practice) and swadhyaya (self study) during four weeks of intense yoga practice and study of Hatha yoga, Bhakti yoga, Karma yoga, Sanskrit, the Raja Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Vedanta philosophy and anatomy and physiology. The approach to teaching is personal, focusing on the individual student.
The course is offered with Yoga Alliance USA/Ca RYS300 hour accreditation – once completed, the graduate of the course will be able to apply to Yoga Alliance for their 300 hour registered Yoga Teacher certification.
The YTTC-II is a natural step for YTTC-I graduates who would like to expand and deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga. The YTTC-II is an intensive and transformative experience.
YTTC-II courses are open only to graduates of Yoga Teachers Training Course (YTTC-1) from SYVP, ISYVC ( www.sivananda.org ) and Yoga Vidya ( www.yoga-vidya.de ) in Germany
