London (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
Sivananda Yoga, an internationally recognised yoga school with over 22,000 graduates worldwide, has responded to the economic downturn by reducing its yoga teacher training course fees for residents of the United Kingdom. Aspiring Hatha Yoga teachers from the UK can participate in a specially priced four-week intensive yoga teacher certification course in the breathtaking Tyrolean Alps from 5 September to 4 October 2009 and save some 20 per cent on tuition, room and board (see http://www.sivananda.eu/en/yoga-teacher-training.html for details).
The Sivananda Yoga Teachers' Training Course (TTC) trains future yoga teachers in the classical integration of the physical, mental and spiritual teachings of yoga. It was founded by renowned yoga master and peace activist Swami Vishnudevananda (author of the best-selling The Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga). The inaugural yoga teacher training programme was taught in Canada in 1969, making it the first yoga school established in the West.
Graduates of this Hatha Yoga teacher certification course have sufficient knowledge and practical experience to teach Hatha Yoga (asanas, pranayama and relaxation) to beginners and intermediate yoga students. They can take advantage of additional yoga teacher certification programmes such as further training seminars and the Advanced Sivananda Yoga Teachers' Training Course.
The Sivananda Yoga Teachers' Training Course is taught in countries all over the world, including the UK, France, Austria, Spain and Poland, as well as India and North and South America.
About the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre
The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre was founded by the renowned authority on Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga, Swami Vishnudevananda, in 1957. Swami Vishnudevananda synthesised the ancient wisdom of yoga into five basic principles that could easily be incorporated into one's own lifestyle to provide the foundation for healthy living. It is around these five principles that the activities at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre are based: Proper Exercise, Proper Breathing, Proper Relaxation, Proper Diet and Positive Thinking & Meditation. The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre is a non-profit organisation run by voluntary staff and dedicated to the aim of disseminating the knowledge of yoga.
