I did the training nearly 14 years ago and did different trainings and courses afterwards. Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center provides a very broad curriculum covering philosophy and history of yoga extensively. I do like the traditional Hatha Yoga and can recommend the training.

One of the rare schools that are still teaching yoga in its full essence, close to what has been transmitted over centuries. You’ll be learning and immersed in the full spectrum of yoga, not just physical asanas.

I can only hardly recommend the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta center. I have enjoyed the complete Teacher Training, liking the fact that they cover not only the physical hatha yoga but also the spiritual part. I still read the teachers manual at least once a year. The teachers have plenty of knowledge and are very helpful.

I picked Sivananda because I like the traditional teaching style, the structure, and the emphasis on bhakti yoga as well as scriptures. Over all it was an eye-opening experience for me that turned out to be so much more than just becoming a teacher. It was a soul transformation that lead down a wonderful spiritual path and I recommend it to anybody.

The Sivananda Ashram is in a stunning location in Kerala. This is the BEST place to start with the foundations of becoming a teacher. The environment is simply pure and perfect! The actual course content will take a novice to becoming a basic teacher with knowledge to support a career in teaching. Go! It is an absolute fabulous experience!

It took me a while to register my 2002 teacher training with Yoga Alliance, 18 years in fact! Therefore, this review is based on my time at the Sivananda yoga ashram in Val Morin, Quebec in 2002. That experience paved the path for me to have a consistent and life enriching yoga practice for the last 18 years. Now, with much experience under my wings I am going back to teaching. The Sivananda Vedanta Centre and their teacher training program is thorough and rooted in tradition. They provide a well-rounded education in all aspects of yoga and Vedanta philosophy, providing students with an understanding and depth of knowledge well beyond the physical/asana practice. This month in the beautiful countryside of Quebec, fully focused on deepening my yoga practice is still one of the most wonderful experiences in my life. It was fun and also challenging! Sleeping in a tent, breathing fresh mountain air, getting up at sunrise to meditate in the beautiful practice hall, starting the day with a calm and balanced mind and body. Focus on pranayama, our asana practice, and developing compassion and devotion through kirtan and karma yoga. Living a pure and simplified life for an entire month, learning from experienced yet humble teachers, many of whom live full time at a Sivananda ashram and who have committed their lives to yoga. Eating healthy vegetarian meals together, attending lectures and ceremonies beyond the usual course work. I have nothing but fond memories of my experience and recommend it to anyone who wants a strong foundation of hatha yoga and a deep understanding of a holistic practice.

Sivananda Ashram at Neyyar Dam, Kerala is a wonderful place, whether you are just starting your Yoga journey, or you’re a seasoned practitioner. The instructors and teachers are insightful, helpful and leave a lasting impression on you as a student of Yoga. This is the place to get a solid foundation in Yoga. The asana practice is tuned so as to suit both beginners and experienced yogis, and the teacher training sessions give you a very clear understanding on how one should teach, not just practice themselves. The Pranayama sessions were my personal favorite, I still practice daily using the Pranayama recordings I have from Sivananda.

The training was almost perfect, true to the Sivananda tradition and educated systems, maybe I think the Anatomy’s lessons could go deeper in yoga postures. I always feel connected with the Sivananda tradition, we were learning first and then we practicing every principle that we learned. I’m so glad to be part of the Sivananda family!

The training programs both TTC and ATTC was intensive. It is an entire month with structure of classes. They offered one day of chair yoga and one day, children yoga and pregnancy yoga in one day which weren’t enough to assure our skills. We had interpreters that gave me the equal access to the classes. I am very grateful for their service to Deaf yogis.

The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre yoga teacher training program was simply the most complete yoga teacher training program I undertook so far. I did 2 other yoga teacher training certification prior to this one. The one-month immersion in the teaching of classical and complete yoga is to my experience unparalleled. All that is supported by experienced and knowledgeable teachers, great venue and accommodation. I highly recommend this yoga teacher training certification to anyone that is able to commit for a month at the center.

I was not prepared for the depth of teachings at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre but I am so happy that I got more than I asked for and exactly what I needed at that moment in my life. I am and remain forever grateful to the teachers, volunteers, staff, fellow students, and Swamis for their patience, kindness, and generosity. Serve. Love. Give. Meditate. Purify. Realize. These six words echo inside me…reverberate as commands and continue to guide and steady my steps as a yoga teacher. As a result of the teachings I received, I am more joyful, open-hearted and peaceful than I can ever remember being. I hope to return to the Vedanta Centre in the Bahamas as often as I can afford to and hope to honor the teachers and the teachings in all my actions both on and off the mat. I recommend their teacher training courses to anyone who would like to meet their true self. Om Namah Shivaya.

Challenging throughout-though primarily emotionally & culturally, I grew and despite life taking many turns away from my practice, I carry daily, lessons learned under the guidance of Swami Govindananda. I am finding my way back to my practice and one day i would love to return to Meenakshi Ashram. Om Namah Shivaya!

This immersive experience plants seeds and gives you the space and time to cultivate the tools for your personal asana, karma, vedanta, and meditative practices. The entire course is designed to support you through your personal and spiritual growth. It is an amazing training, with world travelers as peers, and engagement. The teachers change for each training. Beautiful location in the Bahamas! The only piece of feedback is that I would have felt more comfortable with more time spent practicing teaching. But as I stated, you have the tools to work on your practice at home, which will translate into more effective teaching down the road. Bottomline, I suggest this training for anyone wanting to teach or just deepen their personal practice.

My 200hr program was challenging and rewarding in equal measure. I particularly appreciate how the trainings are rooted in the classical texts and truly teach every part of ashtanga of yoga – not just asanas. This program is a very solid foundation in the practice and experience of yoga. Personally, I think a little bit more time for resting, showering and integrating would be nice, but I understand the logic behind creating a more intensive experience. Looking forward to the Advanced Training and all that good Sangha and Prana! Hari Om Tat Sat

My experience in sivananda yoga vedanta centre was an incredible learning period of my life. Yoga alliance 200 ttc program is an international platform where i interacted sadhakas(participants ) all over the globe . I got an opportunity to understand different culture, met great friends and yoga teachers during my yoga teacher course. 200 teacher training program was a grounded and a well- established course for all beginners. This course had motivated me to understand the perfect yogic life, its role and its importance for a human being. it also motivated me to go in-depth knowledge hence in 2009 i completed my Msc in holistic health and applied yogic sciences. Later on i have attended few more courses and now I feel quite satisfied with my progress . The entire credit would like to give my time in Neyyar Dam during my teachers training course.

I can’t imagine a better yoga teacher training experience than the one I had at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch. Swami Paramananda, Swami Satyapremananda and Shakti were all inspiring, supremely competent and kind teachers. During my month there I grew tremendously as a person, and I feel that my life has been much improved thanks to the experience. Everyone at the Ashram is thoughtful and generous, and I always felt that I received everything that was needed. The teacher training experience was so much deeper than just learning Asanas. I am tremendously grateful for the time we spent in Satsang, meditation, Karma Yoga, learning the Bhagavad Gita, Vedanta, and the general joyous atmosphere of the Ashram. I now feel very inspired in my own personal practice and confident in my ability to share the teachings with others. For those looking to deeply transform themselves, I cannot recommend this place and program more highly. Om Tat Sat.
Marjorie Vera (Maheshwari) on Sep 10, 2019 5 stars
This program met and exceeded all my expectations in terms of thoroughness, rigor, and standards. The curriculum’s carefully thought out, reverent application of Swami Sivananda’s and Swami VIshnu-devananda’s teachings is structured to reflect a balance of vedanta philosophy (as codified in the Baghavad Gita) and its spiritual practices of sadhana (meditation, satsang, kirtan chanting) and karma yoga with the foundations of basic anatomy and physiology and techniques of teaching pranayama and the asanas. It is not a course that would necessarily match the expectations of a broad majority of yoga teacher trainees; nor is it universally accessible as its demanding schedule and strict adherence to its classical lineage make it a formidable challenge. But for those with a desire to deepen their practice physically, academically, and spiritually, the Sivananda Yoga Ashram Ranch in Woodbourne, NY offers a rich, authentic grounding in the gurukula tradition set in the beautiful Catskills Mountains, a backdrop which enhances the meditative quality of the journey. One who undertakes this program with a sincere desire to go beyond the ABCs of learning how to teach a sequence of poses and learn from the original paths of yoga can emerge with a deeper connection to self and an awareness that the self is a reflection of the whole of creation.
Natalie Maheshwari Knox on Sep 10, 2019 5 stars

I took part in the 200 hours and 300 hours Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre the teacher training, the two are my unforgettable experience, attained the knowledge of such a splendid classical Yoga, it not only improved my diligence of Yoga postures and got the sublimation from the spirit and soul level, that is Yoga is physical and spiritual link, is the selfless dedication of love, Yoga is a way of life and a positive attitude towards life. Sivananda Yoga follows the classic Yoga style of ancient Indian tradition, which is a philosophy and guidance of life, and is the most comprehensive and scientific Yoga system today. This is an important reason why I am determined to be a promoter of Sivananda Yoga, and I am proud of it.

My experience with Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre Europe in the Himalayas has become one of the most valuable pieces of my life. The teachers and staff are very friendly and devoted to help with anything we might need. The teaching curriculum was very effective and gradual, which was very helpful for getting prepared as a teacher. The experience of just practicing next to the Ganges everyday and contemplating in the sounds of nature was just priceless. Thank you! Om Shanti

The program helps one to gain a good basic knowledge about YOGA, and not just asanas. I also really like the way the school has sequenced the Asana, which is different from most school, but also gives it’s teacher training students a clear reason on why the particular series is followed.

I’m indebted to Sivananda Centre for a strong foundation and right head start in Yoga. Attended two programmes -TTC and ATTC – ten years ago in two different periods, in Neyyar Dam campus in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. The ambience is so charming. I had a fabulous time there. Received great and generous mentoring from teachers who’re serious practitioners.
