The Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course was created by Swami Vishnudevananda in 1969. In 1957, Swami Sivananda sent Swami Vishnudevananda to America long before anybody had even heard the word yoga. Swami Vishnu was the first yoga master to train people in the West into yoga teacher training courses. He designed the course to give students a complete knowledge of the practice and philosophy of Yoga. Uniquely, this course is meant for world peace as each person would know how to get back to peace and will radiate peace all around. The course is now taught by his senior disciples throughout the world to more than 1,200 students each year. Now with over 45,000 graduates, the Sivananda yoga teacher training is the largest classical yoga training in the world.
