After 40 years of in-depth scientific study in the field of yoga by SVYASA, this course largely follows the direction given by Swami Vivekananda, who declared that we need to combine the best of the East (Yoga and spiritual lore) with the best of the West (modern, scientific research) to bring harmony and peace on earth.


The objective of conducting Yoga Instructor Certificate courses around the world is to bring the holistic vision and the body of knowledge that Yoga is into people’s lives. The result achieved by Yoga practice is positive physical health, mental strength, peace and harmony, all leading to efficiency and growth. The course also aims to help solve problems of modern society and ideal social orders.
