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.

Yoga and Stress Management
With Ananta


Yoga works on the nervous system which is activated when stress and fear or anxiety are experienced. Yoga helps to keep the nervous system in balance so that you feel better able to deal with the unavoidable stresses that are part of daily life.

The course will look into the characteristics and causes of stress and fear and suggests remedies to sooth the nervous system, reduce anxiety, generate harmony and cultivate courage and fortitude. The course contains a study of the nervous system which will help to recognise the signs and symptoms of stress at an early stage, allowing us to adopt healthy coping methods.

Mantras, Sound of Power
With Swami Jyotirmayananda


A mantra is a mystical energy encased in a sound structure.  Every mantra contains within its vibration a specific power. Upon concentration and repetition of a given mantra, its power and energy take form. The benefits of the mental repetition of a mantra and the chanting of mantras are immeasurable. Mantras open the heart, fill the mind with purity and generate harmony and divine love. 

Swami Jyotirmayananda is the director of the Sivananda Yoga Centre London. She is an experienced and inspired teacher.
