Frequently asked Questions

Q&A with Swami Sitaramananda

Director of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres and Ashrams (SYVC) on the US West Coast and in Asia


Q. Why is SYVC only now implementing the Yoga Health Educator Training?

A. The international Sivananda organization has taught the holistic health benefits of classical Yoga for more than 50 years. Today, Yoga is widely known as a powerful way to deal with stress and is recognized as an alternative approach in health and preventative care. The Sivananda Yoga Health Educator Training offers the opportunity to apply the classical Yoga teachings to empower others in their own self-healing.

Q. How will Yoga teachers from schools other than Sivananda benefit from this course?

A. Yoga is universal. Yoga teachers differ in their approach to physical postures, sequences, priorities, outlooks and class curriculum. Sivananda Yoga integrally includes breathing exercises (pranayama), relaxation (savasana), vegetarian diet and positive thinking, meditation (dhyana) and Yoga philosophy (Vedanta). Teachers from other hatha Yoga lineages would especially gain an opportunity to experience immersion to the Yogic lifestyle.

Q. How do I find a job as a Sivananda Yoga Health Educator?

A. The program is constructed following the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) curriculum. SYVC and IAYT are two well-known Yoga organizations. You will stand out in the alternative health field, backed by these two credible organizations. With this training, you can mediate between health care providers and Yoga schools, either referring to existent Yoga courses or provide courses tailored to your specific interest.

Q. Who can I serve and how do I get clients?

A. There are many possible venues. Bring practical Yoga knowledge into hospitals, health clinics, acupuncture clinics, PT and chiropractic offices, social work, at-risk youth facilities, corporate wellness programs. Serve clients struggling with addiction, stress/anxiety, PTSD (survivors of violence—domestic, sexual, personal or military), depression, nervous system disorders, recovery from injury/surgery, chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, behavioral issues and more. Learn how to create a clientele in the “Yoga Business Practices” module during year two.

Q. How does the Yogic lifestyle complement the health care system?

A. Yoga helps restore the immune system and builds resilience to the effects of stress. It addresses deeper issues related to aspects of life such as:

  • karmic issues (deep issues from the past)
  • subtle energy flow and blockages
  • interdependence between our thinking, our emotions and and our energy and vitality
  • direct connection between our consciousness, our sense of meaning of our life, our zeal to live and our capacity of healing
  • relationship between beliefs and healing

Attention to these underlying causes of disease can have remarkable results in the effectiveness of treatments.

Q. What if clients do not believe in the astral body or the connection between mind-body-spirit?

A. There are countless modern scientific studies on the therapeutic effects of Yoga in specific incidences of disease. This brings light to the relationship between body-mind-spirit. It is not a question of belief, but rather viewing each individual as a whole and providing healing practices based on one’s specific needs.

Q. What about Sivananda Yoga Health Educator liability?

A. You are required to follow the protocol of the health institute you are affiliated with. If you consult independently, you can obtain any insurance policy with coverage for Yoga teachers.

Cảm nghĩ từ học viên

The Nature, the Prana (Energy), the Staff and the Knowledge available here cannot be described in words as words have too little power to convey the whole. This is where one has to come and to experience to believe that such a great place does actually exist.

I went to the Sivananda Ashram in Dalat with the intention to cement my meditation practice. What I got was a lot more. With the help from the staff I discovered an inclination for selfless service and attained tools to be affirmative with my mind. I learned about how the mind works, how I work and got deeper into my yoga practice. After a week, I decided to go back. The food is delicious, the space is amazing, the people are amazing.

Peaceful and beautiful place, with real yogi life My experience was fantastic. I was able to learn a lot about theory, meditation and Asana practice. People were very kind, helpful and keen to share knowledge. The training center is located in a gorgeous area in the mountains of Da Lat. The food was also great. I can’t wait to come back and my daily life has changed with the new things I learnt there.
