Swami Vishnudevananda was the first in the West to develop a training program for yoga teachers with the vision to not only develop successful yoga professionals, but also to spread peace in the world through them.
Swami Vishnu once had a vision of the planet going through difficult times after which he felt an urge to do something. He founded the TWO (True World Order) with the motto “Unity in Diversity” based on the intention to promote peace and equanimity among all beings. From there the first Teachers Training Course was born in the West in 1969. He developed the course in a way that through the different practices of Yoga condensed into his 5 Points, he could plant the seed of peace in the trainees, believing that only through an inner spiritual awakening achieved by disciplining the mind and body, could people become more peaceful, developing love, tolerance, patience and understanding toward the whole creation. Countless students came to him to learn how to live a simple, happy and healthy life and how to teach others, spreading the sacred teachings of Yoga throughout the world. In over 40 Years of exceptional Yoga Teacher Training, the Teachers’ Training Course (TTC) is recognized worldwide and has produced more than 35,000 graduates.
