How to get there



This is an advanced course that will really sharpen your mind for a more detailed knowledge of yoga. Upon completion, you will be able to receive a certificate issued by Sri Joydip Ashram.

This 200-hour yoga teacher training will take you to the deeper essence of Gyana yoga and its connection with liberation from Cita Vriitis, which one may have attained in this lifetime, and also the Citta Vrittis which he may have attained in other lifetime, as Maharishi Patanjali puts the definition of yoga as Cittavritta Nirodha.

Sample daily schedule

  •  Daily Surya yoga
  •  Advaita satsang
  •  Session on yoga therapy
  • Nidra yoga sessions and yogic relaxation
  • Evening satsang

Please note that the schedule above is subject to change.

Gyan Yoga TTC uses modern and authentic yoga process which is based on  and whose textual reference and citation of Bhagvad Gita.

The Gyan Yoga training course is based on tradition of Gyan Yoga which leads one to self inquiry, and which further leads one to liberation, from bad tendencies of mind. In order to take a ride to the highest strung of the yoga, which is Gyan Yoga, which is one of the most scared traditions of Yoga, a fit body is required and thus, during the mornings, you will be practicing asanas, in Surya Yoga, which will help you feel fit and prepared for this course.

The asana practices and yoga therapy, within the schedule, should not be conceived as the kind of asana and therapy practices you are used to finding in an modern hatha yoga course. The practices are specific to a traditional Gyan Yoga course, where asana and therapy are meant to keep a fit body, and not completely devoted to asana and therapy. Once your teachers will find that your body is fit enough and that it can move into the higher levels of Arunachala Gyan Yoga lineage, and energy of that level can be transmitted, they will shift the sessions towards Gyan Yoga discourses on major vedantic and yoga text, such as Yoga Sutras, Yoga Vasistha, Yoga of Bhagvad Gita, which will take your development from the physical level to the psychological level and open you towards something higher.

Preparatory programs

Jnana (wisdom or knowledge) yoga requires great strength of will and intellect, and thus it is considered the most difficult of the four main paths of Yoga, which are hatha, karma, bhakti and Jyana.

In view of the above, once you book the course with Sri Joydip Ashram, the team offers you a preparatory program, with the aim of making the whole process less difficult and more enjoyable for you. However, you should be aware that the effects of the Jnana yoga, where the mind is used to inquire into its own nature and to transcend the mind’s identification with its thoughts and ego, are quite phenomenal and permanent, as it transforms the life and liberates one from bad tendencies of life.

Experience visualization

Sri Joydip visualizes to give an experience of Traditional Gyan yoga which is a traditional form of yoga and existing in India for pre-historic times, leading to one of the most significant spiritual festivals – Guru Poornima

This is niether a leisure nor a luxury retreat, and here people will practice intense Gyan yoga and Girivalam yoga, and also work hard and do tapas (intense sadhana) but will get immense spiritual and material benefits and also enhance their yoga career as participants.
