Streamlining without "Dumbing Down"

Here it is!  Our YTT curriculum is streamlined:  shorter, faster, easier and cheaper.  But still deep and profound.  An amazing and rare combination, similar to how Shavasana makes you both relaxed and energized at the same time.  Only a deep immersion into Divine Consciousness can do this for you.  And that is what our Teacher Training programs are: deep immersions into Divine Consciousness.

Fitting a spiritual yoga into an athletic model?   — by Swami Nirmalananda

Svaroopa® yoga trainings always met national standards because we always offered a more comprehensive education than the minimums required.  The modern climate for yoga is all about streamlined trainings, so our primary certification levels are simplified.  The depth of inner experience is provided by Swami Nirmalananda’s gift of Shaktipat, with many of our programs now including a Shaktipat Day, to provide the “deep and profound” while being short, fast and easy.  In this, our third “incarnation” of Teacher Training, it was essential to keep it deep and profound.

Streamlining and shortening programs does mean you spend less time and money, but unfortunately you also learn less.  YTT provides teaching skills so you can serve 60% of the general population, while our Classroom Therapeutics are a training option for those who want to go in this direction.

What are Classroom Therapeutics?

Our full range of professional skills is still available when you continue into advanced trainings, each of which is also streamlined.  Click here to see your many options in choosing an area of focus, including yoga therapy, specialty classes, Deeper Yoga, Bliss Yoga, Advanced Levels and Vinyasa (flow).  Plus EYTS (Continuing Ed) is more interesting, more varied and even more beneficial than before, with new Teacher TuneUps and other programs.

What about the Svaroopa® Yoga Trainings you’ve already taken?

The Ashram has not lost its primary focus, which is about helping you get enlightened.  Everything we do is for that ultimate purpose, including Teacher Trainings, but also our Freebies, phone courses, DIY weekends, Shaktipat Retreats and Week-Long Retreats with Swami Nirmalananda.  In addition, Swamiji will soon be announcing the Vowed Order program, as promised for 2016.  All this means that 2017 is going to be a full year, with many rich and delicious offerings, both for teachers as well as yogis who want to expand their consciousness.
