Develop the skills to teach yoga asana, gaining a solid grounding in the classical yogic tradition, at the same time deepen your spiritual connection to yoga and open yourself to profound inner transformation.
The Teachers’ Training Course (TTC) is a four-week intensive residential course, based on the ancient gurukula system of India where teacher and student live together. You will be in a traditional Ashram and closely interact with our experienced and dedicated teachers and staff who themselves are immersed in the yogic lifestyle. Connect to an ancient teaching lineage (guru parampara), passed down from guru to disciple through thousands of years, the curriculum is extensive and covers both theory and practice. Devotional practices, traditional to India, are an integral part of the Course.
In these four-weeks you will establish a firm foundation of discipline that promotes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth while building a strong base from which to teach others naturally and with confidence.
The Course was designed by Swami Vishnudevananda in 1969 with the vision to not only develop successful yoga professionals but to also spread peace in the world through them. A sincere desire to learn and openness to yogic techniques is required – a basic knowledge of yoga postures and philosophy is preferred, but not essential.
