Sivananda Yoga Teachers' Training Course

Sivananda Teachers Training Course Online 

16 November – 13 December 2024

4 weeks - 6 days per week

Experience the teachings of Yoga at home in real time 

The goal of this training programme is to prepare qualified and inspiring yoga teachers who are able to draw on their own practice and personal discipline to impart the yoga experience to others.

Teaching language

The course will be taught in three languages in parallel: English, German and Spanish.

The Online Experience

It appears that the online-version of the Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training Course brings a great amount of nearness and authenticity.

  • The Online Teacher Training Course is a wonderful opportunity to dive into your own practise, to learn new aspects of yoga and to adopt a healthy and positive life style – even without traveling.

  • The Online Course will give us a chance to reflect on ourselves: our habits, our mental tendencies, our perspective on life.

  • You will learn how to transform your living place into your personal center of spiritual energy.

  • The training includes practical cooking instructions. During the four weeks you will learn to prepare healthy and tasty vegetarian meals.

  • Guest speakers and artists will share their knowledge online in the fields of Ayurveda, mantra chanting and Indian arts.

  • A key aspect is the daily one-hour mentoring session with one of the swamis or senior staff. They will guide you personally in your asana and pranayama practise and assist with your studies.

Course description  

The course enables you to teach Yoga classes online and on site without hands on corrections.  It comprises 267 teaching units à 45 minutes. The certificate meets the RYS 200 h Standard of the Yoga Alliance.

Prerequisite for participation is the sincere desire to learn and to open up to the techniques of yoga. It is of advantage to become acquainted with the basic exercises of yoga and the principles of yoga philosophy even before the training, but it is not absolutely necessary.

The course is part of a universal vision of peace: The more people experience peace within, the more this peace will manifest in outward action. In this way, a glow of peace envelops the world.
