The Sivananda Yoga Farm recently announced several yoga teacher training courses for the upcoming months. The Teacher Training Course (TTC) will take place in California from October 7th to November 3rd, 2012 and December 1st-30th. The program will also be offered in Yoga Vietnam from February 16th to March 17th, 2013 in Cu chi.

Millions of people throughout the world have discovered the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of the practice of Yoga. Since its opening in 1971, the Yoga Farm has offered students of all levels scenic and serene yoga retreats where they can learn more about all aspects of the discipline.

Swami Vishnudevananda founded the spiritual, non-sectarian, non-profit Yoga ashram, located in Grass Valley, Califoronia. The Yoga Farm provides a residential setting where spiritual practitioners of all levels can deepen their practice through the study of classical yoga, meditation and vedanta.

“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 cultural backgrounds and live harmoniously together in a spiritual community under the guidance of teachers.

"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.”

Swami Vishnudevananda founded the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres. Since 1969, over 26,000 yoga teachers have been trained through the program, which is now offered in dozens of locations worldwide including Yoga Argentina, and Yoga Colombia program.

The Advanced Yoga Teacher's Training Course (ATTC) helps graduates 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 TTC is a prerequisite for this course.
