Grass Valley, CA, August 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Sivananda Yoga Farm announces its international Yoga Teacher's Training Course
in California from December 1, 2012 - December 30, 2012 and in Vietnam Yoga
from February 16th to March 17th, 2013. The Yoga teacher training course was designed by the renowned Swami Vishnu-devananda. It is an intensive immersion in Yoga, balanced between theory and practice.
“This course is meant to be intensive, immersing the students in a day long balanced program of theory and practices,” Swami Sitaramananda, director of the Yoga center explains, adding that the students come from different backgrounds and cultures and live harmoniously together in a spiritual community under the guidance of teachers.
Students come from different backgrounds and cultures and live harmoniously together in a spiritual community under the guidance of teachers. Since 1969, over 30,000 yoga teachers have been trained through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers' TTC program.
According to Swami Sitaramananda
, “In keeping with this ancient Yoga tradition, spiritual practices such as daily adherence to discipline, meditation, sanskrit mantra chanting, Hindu gods and goddesses, ceremonial worships such as puja, strict vegetarianism, selfless service and study of philosophy constitute a large part of this program.”
The Advanced Yoga Teacher's Training Course helps graduates from the Sivananda Teacher's Training Course to deepen their spiritual practice and their study of Hatha yoga, Vedanta philosophy, Raja yoga, anatomy and Sanskrit.
The advanced class gives students an additional chance to practice under guidance in a supportive atmosphere, which provides many with a boost of energy and clarity. The course is similar to the Teacher Training Course and is not meant for experts only (the TTC is a prerequisite).
Swami Vishnudevananda founded the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres. Since 1969, over 24,000 yoga teachers have been trained through the program, which now has close to 60 locations. For more information about the courses offered, please visit www.sivanandayogafarm.org.
