This SivaOm Yoga Instructor Yoga Education by SivaOm School of Yoga is designed for those who seek soul enlightenment and deep wisdom.
When we speak of Yoga within the spiritual sense, this cosmic science is as old as the universe and encaptures the very essence of the universe itself. This system of yoga which has come to be referred to as SivaOm Yoga allows us to harmoniously unite the internal shiv and shakti and having achieved this divine union we proceed towards the ultimate goal of our human existence, to merge the jivatma back to the Brahman, to become enlightened, to get liberated and to understand that You are also Shiv.
The first aim of SivaOm Yoga Education is to get you deep into your yogic sadhana, to make you live yoga, as yoga is not something you do for a few hours on a mat, but this is a darshan to the aatma, a way of life. When you do this with full heart and awareness, no power on earth can stop you from achieving yoga, when you are committed to yoga, you are also showing commitment to yourself which is simply reflected through your study and sadhana. Please remember that only a good student becomes a great teacher and only a great teacher can shine light in the darkness of others. The first person you help is not someone around you, but it is yourself and you do that by learning how to achieve yoga yourself and then sharing this ancient yogic wisdom with others once you have achieved that.
We do not think of a student as a client unlike in those conventional teacher training programs that limit the learning experience to a fixed number of hours or days, the teacher training which don’t even give the essence of yoga because they are afraid of losing clients and speaking the truth about it, not to mention it is a broken system that was modified by an American registry system to make as much money as possible. We believe that yoga is a lifelong commitment and a profound journey of self-discovery and this will need lots of determination, focus, and patience. We are deeply committed to preserving the true essence of yoga and rejecting the cultural appropriation that has diluted its teachings. Morally speaking we don’t want to give you a skeleton of yoga in the name of yoga and don’t want people to become a gymnast or an acrobat, we want you to become a Yogi and a Guru and if you are reading this, then might I say it is your Karma that has brought you here and it is your destiny to become one.
Having said that, at hand, we were at the task of developing a system that allowed the students not just to learn the theory of yoga but also to practice and experience yoga with its soul intact. Complete Teachings of the system of SivaOm Yoga have been divided into 7 Levels inspired by the 7 Chakras. This specific SivaOm Yoga Education series is for those who want to pursue this course to either become a yoga instructor or go deeper into the teachings of yoga and includes Level 1, 2 & 3 out of the 7 levels.
We invented the SivaOm Yoga Education system spread over 7 Levels, which is a practice of yoga developed by Guruji Shri Siddhartha Shiv Khanna through the inspiration already given in the holy scriptures of ancient India and suggested by Adi Guru Bhagwan Shiv and the other Maha Gurus. Yoga works on the level of one’s body, mind, and soul. This has given rise to four schools of Yoga: Karma Yoga where we utilize the body; Jnāna Yoga where we utilize the mind; Bhakti Yoga where we utilize emotion and Raja Yoga where we utilize the energy. Each system of Yoga we practice falls within the shadow of one or more of these categories. This SivaOm Yoga practice includes a mystical union of the 4 main branches of yoga (raja – karma – jnan – bhakti) combined in its original teachings from Ancient India. Full knowledge and application of this method among various other things are taught during the SivaOm Yoga Education.
This system of SivaOm Yoga 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 types 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 characters and every temperament. There will be at least one aspect of the practice with which the student will identify 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.
It is suitable for any person of any age, including those who have done other courses and wish to go deeper into the roots of yoga, as well as for those who wish to become instructors, teachers as well as gurus of the yogic wisdom. To that person whose body is hungry, we give him the gift of food and water. thereto, a person whose mind is hungry, we give him the gift of knowledge and wisdom, but even greater than these gifts is the gift we 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 of us equally.
SivaOm Yoga Instructor Education LEVEL 1 (Introduction To Yoga)
We recommend that a student enters the SivaOm Yoga Education at Level 1, where they are required to take 75 SivaOm Yoga group lessons with one of our Qualified SivaOm Yoga Teachers. Briefly stated these SivaOm Yoga group lessons are based on a careful and specific sequencing that includes a mystical union of all 4 main branches of yoga (raja – karma – jnan – bhakti) combined in its original teachings from Ancient India, into a single seminar of 90 minutes. This lays down the foundations and gives you enough time to master SivaOm Yoga successfully as well as settle comfortably into what is yet to come. The students are also required to read the book “How To Become a Yogi” by Swami Abhedananda on their own during this period.
SivaOm Yoga Instructor Education LEVEL 2 (Yoga Practitioner)
Having completed Level 1, the student automatically qualifies to enter Level 2 in which they are given the yogic wisdom through all-day seminars conducted by the guru and then mentored by their allocated mentors outside the education hours. The students must attend both practical and theoretical seminars regularly with attendance of 75% being compulsory, along with taking regular lessons from their allocated SivaOm Yoga Instructors and doing yoga with the other SivaOm Yoga community members. In addition, they must give theoretical and practical exams to show their proficiency. Don’t worry, your guru along with your allocated instructor will be with you at each step of this process. Upon successfully completing the course, and passing the exams (theoretical and practical), you shall be awarded a SivaOm Yoga Instructor Yoga Education with SIVA OM School of Yoga Certificate (registered with the Govt. Of India). The following subjects will be covered at this level.

SivaOm Yoga Instructor Education LEVEL 3 (Yoga Instructor)
Having successfully completed Level 1 and Level 2, the student is now elevated to the position of a Yoga Instructor. In this role, they are supposed to apply what they have learned themselves to students of Level 2. The SivaOm Yoga Mentors are expected to teach 2 SivaOm Yoga group lessons every week and hold bi-weekly meetings with the Level 2 students to discuss and answer from their own experiences the questions arising in their student’s minds. At this level, there is direct contact and guidance with the guru on how to master the teachings of the yogic way of life and efficiently deliver it to their own students. We believe only after having gone through this level, a person has the necessary tools to teach yoga at a basic level. In all honesty, with all my experience, I believe all this is just foundational. It is not enough and you must stride more, and walk with determination on the journey ahead towards becoming a guru of yogic wisdom. Just below is our own developed road map toward becoming a Qualified SivaOm Yoga Guru.
The SivaOm Yoga Instructors Yoga Education is taught by Yoga Guru Shri Siddhartha Shiv Khanna from India (Founder of the SIVA OM Yoga School).
