About This Correspondence Course:

This correspondence course is the best basic training in Classical Yoga through the written word now available. The Yoga: Step-By-Step Correspondence Course study is one of the requirements for those desiring to participate in the Six Month International Yoga Teacher’s Training Course held each year at ICYER from October 2 through March 25th.

Yogamaharishi Dr. Swami Gitananda developed this course in 1971 and the fifty-two weekly lessons are well illustrated with photographs and line drawings. It contains a practical, systematic step-by-step instruction in the integral practice of Rishiculture Ashtanga (Gitananda) Yoga. Students answer the weekly lesson-questionnaire and submit their papers to ICYER – Ananda Ashram for evaluation.

The course has now been converted into an online offering since 2nd October 2020 and is led by Yogacharya Dr Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani and a Team of 25 International Mentors of the Rishiculture Ashtanga (Gitananda) Yoga tradition from all over the world. Sessions are held every Sunday to explore the lesson of the week and extra videos and other supportive links are shared regularly. An interactive group is active on Facebook with opportunities for all students and mentors to learn and share with TEAM 52 of ICYER. This establishes a personal rapport within the students and mentors, through regular correspondence guiding each one through problems and difficulties.

Certificate of proficiency is awarded upon successful completion of the course that has now been approved as an Advanced Certificate in Yoga by the Indian Yoga Association. Included, as a bonus is a free one-year digital subscription to the monthly journal Yoga Life.
