LIVING AND LEARNING YOGA

Swami Vishnudevananda developed the first yoga teachers’ training course (TTC) in the West in 1969 as part of his vision of universal 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.

The goal of this training programme is to produce qualified and inspiring yoga teachers who are able to draw on their own practice and personal discipline in imparting the yoga experience to others. Over 34,000 certified yoga teachers have completed the Teachers’ Training Course, with another 1,000 graduates worldwide each year.
