Yoga is a practical, scientific system that brings about harmony in your inner world, from where it radiates into your interaction with others and your relationship with Nature.

Our Yoga Vana Teacher Training Course is an empowering learning journey in the Sivananda Yoga tradition for you to reconnect to your True Nature and, as a result, experience health and peace of mind, skillfulness in your personal interactions and a deepened awareness for your interconnection with the natural world. 

Based on your intensive self-practice, the Teacher Training supports you in sharing the yogic tools with others, from your own experience and in your own words, while standing on the shoulders of a thousand year old lineage of teachers.



Teaching Team

Our teaching team combines a wealth of experience in all aspects of the yoga system.

Mani Raman, lead teacher at Yoga Vana, has trained thousands of yoga teachers over the past 20 years in the Sivananda Yoga tradition.

In each Yoga Teacher Training Course, the core teaching team is supported by resource persons from all over India to give you a complete and in-depth learning experience - from classical yogic science and practice in all paths of yoga (bhakti, raja, karma, jnana) to contemporary neuro-scientific research on happiness, empathy and mindfulness.


Participants will be assessed throughout the course and need to pass a final written exam in order to receive the certificate which allows them to register with Yoga Alliance as an internationally recognised 200 Hours Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200).


The purpose of this Teacher Training Course is to make you into a true leader, a leader of the human race. Unite people, do not divide them. Do not be a fanatic, do not be a preacher of Yoga. Be a practical expert through practice.
— Swami Vishnudevananda
