    In 1967 Swami Vishnudevananda, founder of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers, taught the first Yoga Teachers’ Training Course in the West. Today, this internationally renowned course is taught by his close disciples. Over 18,000 teachers worldwide have graduated from this comprehensive course. The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers organization is today the largest yoga organization of its kind in the world and has nearly forty years of experience in teaching this course.
