San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
The Sivananda Yoga Farm will be offering its international Yoga Teacher Training Courses and Yoga retreats in Vietnam in February 16th to March 17th, 2013 and in California in May 11th to June 8th, 2013.
The Yoga training course, designed by the renowned Swami Vishnu Devananda, is an intensive immersion in Yoga, balanced between theory and practice. Students come from different backgrounds and cultures and live harmoniously together in a spiritual community under the guidance of teachers. Since 1969, over 24,000 yoga teachers have been trained through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers' TTC program. 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 the course.
The yoga teachers training course is based on a model that is a traditional system of education named "Gurukula" where teachings are transmitted and practiced in daily life. It is not just an academicteaching of techniques, separated from life. Since 1969, over 30,000 yoga teachers have been trained through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers' TTC program. The group energy is very high adding to the pure atmosphere of an ashram.
All Yoga and retreats offered at the center provide a fantastic opportunity to awaken or deepen your yoga practice, meet old and new friends, and to be a part of the global yoga community which is growing each day. The experience provides a great way to find long lasting happiness, peace and the ability to share a yogic lifestyle with others.
The ashram also offers a Yoga Nidra course as well as jyotish (vedic astrology) classes. Registration is currently open. For more details please visit sivanandayogafarm.org or call (530) 272-9322/(800)469-9642.
