Program

SivaOm Yoga is a practice of yoga developed by Guruji Shri Siddhartha Shiv Khanna through the inspiration of Adi Guru Bhagwan Shiv. This practice includes a mystical union of the four main branches of yoga (raja – karma – jnan – bhakti) combined in its original teachings from ancient India into a single seminar of 90 minutes. A full application of this method among various other things is taught during the 200-Hour SivaOm YTT.

This system is based upon various mechanisms available to all or any living creatures and has been carefully combined together, keeping in mind the diverse kind and type of individuals. It’s perfect for every human, it’s for people of all ages, it’s for people of all times, those that have lived in the past, those living presently, and even those that are yet to be born.

It’s suitable for people of all character and every temperament. There will be at least one aspect of the practice with which the student will identify with and through that one aspect of the practice, he or she will become self-realized and god-realized. Such is the nature of this practice that it has the power to liberate the soul and provides freedom from all kinds of suffering.

To that person whose body is hungry, give him the gift of food and water. Thereto, a person whose mind is hungry, give him the gift of knowledge and wisdom, but even greater than these gifts is that the gift you give to the soul that’s hungry, which gift is of SivaOm yoga. this is a gift from the universe and surely must be shared with all mankind for it belongs to all equally.

This 200-hour YTT is suitable for any person of any age, including those who are already teachers and wish to go deeper into the roots of yoga, as well as for those who wish to become teachers. Focus on much higher and spiritual elements and aspects of yoga in addition to aasan (posture), mantra, mudra, and pranayama practice. The course will be delivered in English and upon successful completion of the course you shall be awarded a 200-unit of SivaOm Yoga Teacher Training with SIVA OM School of Yoga Certificate (registered with the Government of India).

  • Important note: The information given below is a road map towards the yoga tree as per ancient Vedic and yogic Siddhanta in brief and is also the course structure recommended by the Government Of India. A detailed and elaborate understanding is provided during the 200-hour SivaOm YTT.

Yoga works on the level of one’s body, mind, and soul. This has given rise to four broad classifications of yoga: Karma yoga where you utilize the body, Jnāna yoga where you utilize the mind; Bhakti yoga where you utilize the emotion, and Raja yoga where you utilize the energy. Each system of yoga you practice falls within the gamut of one or more of these categories.

The four schools of yoga (Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, and Raja Yoga). An understanding of Sankhya philosophy from time to time. The concepts related to Jnana Yoga or the yoga of knowledge and wisdom. The above-mentioned curriculum of the four main paths shall be covered in-depth with a focus upon the following subjects:

History of yoga

The practice of yoga is believed to have started with the very dawn of civilization. The science of yoga has its origin thousands of years ago. Scientifically speaking, historical evidence of the existence of yoga was seen from even times before human history was recorded and thereafter, till Patanjali’s period. A detailed study and research will be presented during this module.

How to be a yogi

Swami Abhedananda explains the laws, principles, and methods of yoga practice, based on the teachings of Patanjali. Includes the chapter: "Was Christ a Yogi?" This seminar is mainly about lectures given at the turn of the previous century. In his time, Swami Adhedananda would attract some 4000 people to his lectures in New York.

Studio setting teaching

They'll teach SivaOm yoga, which is a practice of yoga developed by Guruji Shri Siddhartha Shiv Khanna through the inspiration of Adi Guru Bhagwan Shiv. This practice includes a mystical union of the four main branches of yoga (raja – karma – jnan – bhakti) combined in its original teachings from Ancient India, into a single seminar of 90 minutes. A full application of this method among various other things will be taught so that you can teach yoga in any environment (studio/workshop/retreat).

Mantra yoga

Mantra yoga is that branch of yoga where the science of sound vibration is used to achieve yoga. Mantras are used as tools to the wandering mind, steering it to an ambient poise for meditation. Repetition of mantras completely engages the mind, offering a means of getting closer to the divinity within.

Chanting of mantras produces positive vibrations, bringing benefits to the one who chants, as well as the one who listens. Various other important elements such as when, where, how along with rules, and protocols of Mantra yoga will be discussed.

Karma yoga

The trick is to learn how to work in a way that doesn’t cause more misery. Karma yoga is a mental discipline that allows one to carry out one’s duties as a service to the entire world, as a path to enlightenment. By working in the real world, by giving up attachment to work, you can obtain spiritual liberation.

You shall discuss the concept of Karma which are similar to those given in the Bhagavada-Gita, and single out Siddhartha as a primary example of this form of yoga. Main study is based on "Karma In Its Effect On Character" chapter, the "Secret of Work", what is the duty of an individual, the relevance and importance of "Non-Attachment", and the main ideal of Karma yoga.

Bhakti yoga

Bhakti yoga is a real genuine search for yoga with the universe. A search beginning, continuing and ending in love. One single moment of the madness of extreme love to god brings eternal freedom. When a man gets it, he loves all, hates none; he becomes satisfied forever. Bhakti yoga is a spiritual path described in ancient philosophy that is intended to foster love, faith, and surrender to the "Supreme".

It is a means to realize god, and is the easiest way for the common person because it doesn’t involve extensive physical yogic practices. You shall discuss during this discourse the "Definition of Bhakti", the philosophy of Isvar, spiritual realization, the aim of Bhakti yoga, and the need for a guru. Along with that, you will elaborate on the qualifications of the aspirant and various other elements.

History of Mahabharat and Shrimad Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita, “The Song of the Lord”, is the best known of all the Indian scriptures. You will discuss Gita in its historical aspect and bring out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Each chapter introductions give clear explanations of the key concepts of that chapter.

The Bhagavad Gita opens dramatically on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. However, the Gita is not what it seems, it’s not a dialogue between two historical figures at the dawn of Indian history. “The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but Gita’s subject is the war within each of us, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage” to live a life that is meaningful, fulfilling, and worthwhile.

Vigyan Bhairava Tantra

Vigyan Bhairava Tantra is one of yoga’s most important and key texts. It is an ancient text on yoga and meditation revealed by god centuries ago. It was written to show mankind how to reach a state of enlightenment. The Vigyan Bhairava Tantra contains a great deal of practical wisdom. It shows people how to overcome suffering and find peace and joy in their lives. It is the perfect guide to lead you towards enlightenment and liberation.

Special needs yoga class - Sequencing

Sequencing of a lesson in a studio format and special lessons for teenagers and children, pregnant ladies, senior citizens, to teach in big corporates/companies and online teaching.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is an ancient text and is one of the earliest treatises on Hatha yoga; all the modern books are based on it. This book is intended as an aid for those who wish to learn the advanced practices of Hatha yoga to advance their kundalini from a qualified guru.

Many of the instructions given here have been purposely veiled by the original writers, others need elaboration and may require the guidance of a guru for correct understanding. Some of these practices are not for beginners and that to violate this caution is to put the psyche at risk. Therefore, you shall strictly follow these instructions and the guidance of your guru.

Patanjali Yoga Sutra

Patanjali’s yoga sutras, written almost 2700 years ago, is one of the most important and comprehensive texts on the theory and practice of yoga. From concentration, its spiritual uses and practice, to manifestation and the process of attaining liberation, the aphorisms state the path to self-realization.

One of the key texts of classical yoga, dive deep into Patanjali’s yoga sutras and try to learn this text through the method of studying in-depth commentary of each sutra. The concepts of Ida, Pingala, and the Sushumna, the central channel of energy running along the spine, seven major chakras, and its correlation to states of consciousness, Yoga Nidra.
