Today, this internationally renowned course is taught by his close disciples. Over 30,000 students have graduated from this comprehensive course. In addition to providing teacher trainees with an in-depth knowledge of classic Yoga practices, Swami Vishnu created the TTC as part of his global peace initiative, structuring it in a way that each trainee will undergo a personal transformation and find inner peace. Thus, the Yoga course empowers graduates to become peaceful, self-controlled leaders and citizens of the world.
During this four-week intensive yoga instructor certification course, students will integrate daily ashram life with their Yoga training. This course is uniquely designed to provide a firm foundation from which the student will be able to teach others both intuitively and confidently. The course is an invitation to strengthn a Yoga practice through self-discipline and awareness of the nature of body, mind and spirit.
