The Certificate Courses in London

These certificate courses are open to all yoga practitioners and are especially well suited for yoga teachers and people in the health professions. The goal is to transfer these integral personal experiences and the knowledge gained into our daily and professional lives.

The courses will follow the daily schedule of the Sivananda Ashrams:
Yoga classes, Satsangs (group meditation), in-depth workshops, vegetarian meals and participation in the Ashram community life. There will be time to relax, go for walks along the river or visit London for those coming from abroad.

Students enrolled for the course are required to participate in all activities and follow the yogic lifestyle taught at the Centre. Yoga is based on self discipline (Sadhana). It is this discipline that allows one to experience the full benefits of the course while helping to maintain the spiritual energy of the Centre.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of participation stipulating the number of practice/study hours in the course.

The Power of Hatha Yoga

Connecting to the source of power within

With Kailas


Hatha Yoga is the union of the 2 energies of the bodies, prana and apana, resulting in a unified field of consciousness in which complete peace is experienced. Its goal is the actualisation of the human energy potential which will bring about a complete rejuvenation and refinement of the body and the mind. It is based on the understanding that prana, the vital life force, is the invisible principle which is the essence of everything in the universe, including our body and mind. 

Asanas work on many body systems simultaneously, creating suppleness in the spine and toning the muscles, glands and internal organs. Though at first it will be the physical experience of the postures that affects you most strongly, as you progress you will grow more and more aware ofthe flow of prana, the vital energy, and the importance of correct breathing - pranayama. 

The course will enable you to experience and understand the depth of hatha yoga, and refresh your approach to your asana, pranayama and meditation practice. 



Kailas is a dynamic Sivananda yoga teacher with much energy and enthusiasm to serve. He is the practical manager of the Ashram de Yoga Sivananda in France. He used to be a professional basket ball player which gave him a strong physical basis and discipline for his yoga practice. He teaches in the Sivananda Yoga and Teachers' Training Courses in France and in India with enthusiasm and much  

attention to details.
