Swami Veda Bharati

Dear Yoga Teachers and Students,

It is my pleasure to introduce to you the Continuing Intensive Studies and Yoga Teacher Training Programme of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition in the Netherlands. It is a multifaceted and complete training of Yoga Meditation as taught by Swami Rama of the Himalayas. This program has been designed to pass on the essential principles and practices of the Tradition, which fosters personal development on all levels. For the aspiring as well as the experienced teacher, the programme presents all aspects of yoga/meditation in a spiritually inspiring context.

This unique programme of ongoing spiritual guidance and home study is for anyone who seriously seeks self-transformation in this lifetime. By drawing from the ancient wisdom of sages such as Patanjali, Shankara, Swatmarama and Swami Rama, students will develop philosophies and skills, which can be applied to workplace situations, personal relationships, and mental and emotional conditions, also in the western context. The practical, experiential approach to teacher training encourages students to incorporate these skills into their daily lives.

The Netherlands has a deep and long-term connection with the Himalayan Tradition. The Dutch teachers are thoroughly trained and educated in India in the practical and philosophical aspects of Yoga Meditation and are internationally certified to teach and maintain the high quality of the teachings of the Himalayan Tradition. These teachers are eminently capable of guiding students in their transformation process. The Dutch Teacher Training Programme is supported by the teaching staff of our ashram in India. Our international teachers will visit the Netherlands regularly for workshops, retreats, guidance and general support.

I would personally like to invite you to participate in the programme, which includes a comprehensive roster of classes in subtle hatha yoga, pranayama, meditation and other facets of yoga science and philosophy with a highly qualified teaching staff. I invite and encourage you to join in for silence, introspection, and training in the highest levels of Patanjali’s practices of yoga.

With love and blessings,
