Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training
- Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training is a program designed to train individuals to become certified yoga teachers in the Sivananda style of yoga. Sivananda Yoga is a form of classical hatha yoga that emphasizes the five points of yoga: proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet, and positive thinking/meditation.
- The Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training program is based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda, and is recognized by the Yoga Alliance as a 200-hour teacher training program. The training typically takes place over the course of four weeks and includes classes in yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology, asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, and teaching methodology.
- Upon completion of the training, graduates are certified to teach Sivananda Yoga classes and are eligible for registration with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training is popular among individuals who are interested in deepening their own yoga practice, as well as those who are looking to start a career as a yoga teacher.
