THE HIMALAYAN TRADITION OF YOGA MEDITATION
Teacher Training/Continuing Studies Program
IHYTA Teacher Training/Continuing Studies Program Information
Letter from Swami Veda Bharati
Dear Yoga Teachers and Students,
The Himalayan Tradition of Yoga Meditation, as taught by Swami Rama of the Himalayas, is multifaceted and complete. Both its context and content are spiritual and inspirational. The Teacher Training/ Continuing Studies Program of the Sadhana Mandir Ashram aims at enabling would-be trainees to present all aspects of yoga meditation in this spiritual and inspiring form.
The physical postures and respiratory techniques will be taught as part of that philosophy of hatha yoga which is based in our system of yoga meditation. The philosophy, text, technique and experience will be presented so that the trained teacher prepares the student not only for a physically healthy life, but a spiritually complete one through initiation and meditation.
The program will train not merely teachers of classes, but guides of people, in such a way that both the teacher and the student apply the principles laid down by sages like Patanjali, Swatmarama and other founders of the tradition to their mental and emotional condition and their relationships and daily life.
The Teacher Training will not end with the issuing of a certificate, as you are encouraged to remain under the spiritual guidance of the Ashram for your continued growth and spiritual realization.
With love and blessings,
Swami Veda Bharati
