Are you ready to take your yoga practice to a deeper, more meaningful level or teach others about the wonderful benefits of yoga?

In 1969, Swami Vishnudevananda introduced the first TTC taught in the West. Since then, over 50,000 yoga teachers have been certified by the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers around the world. Our TTC is appropriate for both aspiring Yoga teachers, and anyone wishing to deepen their practice and understanding of Yoga.

Join us at the Yoga Ranch for a four weeks transformation in the TTC. Our TTC is based on the ancient Gurukula teaching system, which integrates the student’s daily life into the yoga training. You’ll be living on the ashram in the middle of the Catskill mountains, in NY, with your teachers. Living close to nature, and with your teachers will strengthen your own yoga practice, self-discipline and awareness of the mind, body and spirit.

This course is design to build a firm foundation from which you will develop the skills and knowledge to teach yoga with confidence. The TTC is a wonderful opportunity to awaken or deepen your yoga practice and to be a part of the global yoga community of Sivananda yoga teachers. This course is registered with the Yoga Alliance at a 200-hour level.
