Continuing Education for Youth to a Highly Skilled Profession
Yoga Professional Course 2022
Students are required to follow taught modules to the equivalent of 12 modules each year. All modules in this YPC Year One are assessed.
An overall percentage mark is awarded for each module, based on the marks awarded for individual assessment items within the module. The TYOGA YPC Certification may be awarded at Distinction, Merit or Pass level in accordance with the standards of assessment set by the 'Academic Board' of TYOGA at TYOGA.
The TYOGA ‘Yoga Professional Course’ is designed both as an end qualification in itself and also as a platform preparing students for more advanced yogic teaching and practices.
The YPC is a very intense programme to make our students into highly qualified Yoga Masters.
It needs no description that the teacher is the pivot of any educational system. On him or her rests the failure or the success of the society and mankind. If the teachers are well educated and if they are intellectually alive and take keen interest in their work, then only, success is ensured in educating and teaching another. But, if on the other hand, they lack training in education and if they cannot give their heart to their profession, the system is destined to fail.
The teacher is a dynamic force. A just teacher is just like a body without the soul, a skeleton without flesh and blood, a shadow without substance. There is no greater need for the cause of education today than the need for strong manly men and motherly women as teachers for the young. As social engineers, yoga teachers can socialise and humanise the young by their yogic qualities.
A flower in bloom is loved by all and in this lays its glory. Similarly, man may be viewed as having achieved everything in life when he or she becomes perfect in character. If the best flowers among mankind take to teaching, society is abundantly enriched; their fragrance and beauty are then made the best use of. If the teacher becomes an embodiment of right conduct in thought, word and deed, the students by their association will learn virtue and develop manly qualities. They can be humanised and can live and act like normal human beings. They can become thoughtful, concerned and courageous.
TYOGA welcomes you on the path to become a teacher and a master in yoga.

A prerequisite for reaching the goal is a firm decision to follow the spiritual path lifelong, to be patient and persevere with the daily practice, to have faith in the Master, and to trust in the path you have begun. The Master offers spiritual power, direction and assistance, but it is your own individual endeavour that will bring the words of the Master to realisation.
For everything that we would like to do in life there are three things to consider. First, we need to ascertain our present starting point and accept this; second, we should be clear about the goal we want to reach; and, third, we must decide on a path that will lead us to this goal.
Once the goal has been decided upon one does not think of the effort required for the journey ahead. With patience and concentration all difficulties are overcome and one reaches the chosen goal.
Though it is important to be clear about your goal, this fact doesn’t mean that you have already reached it. This can be a fatal mistake. Some people think: “I believe in God and have found my personal God, therefore I have reached my goal.” This conclusion is false. It means that we have recognised the goal intellectually, not that it has been realised in our consciousness. When the latter is the case we experience realisation; and then we are no longer the same person as before. We have gone through many experiences and have matured through them. And the goal has also changed and turned out to be far more magnificent than we could ever have imagined.
When singers practise a song, inwardly they have a vision of how it should sound. They work hard training and polishing their singing until the song matches the vision, or excels it. It is the same with a painter, writer, sculptor or architect. At first only the idea or vision exists in the mind. A long, tiring creative process is required until a work of art is produced from it, manifesting the inner blueprint.
Obstacles and setbacks belong to every path. They are the trials that we have to go through. Some grow with the difficulties and become stronger, others begin to doubt and give up. Only those who stand firm like a rock in the breakers of life will realise their goal.
Recognise your goal and work with determination and concentration towards it. One day you will come to the end of the path and immerse yourself in the Infinite. When you have reached the goal you will recognise how wonderfully and perfectly God has arranged everything. By then you will have developed so many inner powers and willpower that the difficulties and obstacles that once loomed up huge and mighty like mountains, now look like minute grains of sand that you can brush away with a flick of your hand.
“True art is to pull an elephant through the eye of a needle”.
One day the puffed-up “elephant” of our ego will become so small that it can be pulled through the eye of a needle without resistance. This is precisely the task that we need to accomplish.
Our life can be compared to a river that flows between two shores. On one shore we find suffering, pain and disappointment, and on the other happiness, joy and harmony. But generally we flounder helplessly in the waves of existence and are tossed from one shore to the other by our destiny. The Master is the bridge that raises us above the course of our destiny and leads us from the shore of sorrow to the shore of bliss.
A Science of Body, Mind, Consciousness and Soul
To live in harmony with oneself and the environment is the most important aspect for a human being.
The result: more and more people suffer from physical and mental tension where stress, anxiety, insomnia, have become a way of life. This is why methods and techniques for the attainment and improvement of health, as well as physical, mental and spiritual harmony, are of great importance.
Regardless of age or physical constitution, this system opens the classical path of Yoga to all. In developing this system to accommodate the needs of today’s people, much consideration was given to the conditions within modern society, without losing the originality and effect of the ancient teachings.
Yogam has a holistic effect and brings body, mind, consciousness and soul into balance. In this way Yogam assists us in coping with everyday demands, problems and worries. Yogam helps to develop a greater understanding of our self, the purpose of life and our relationship to God. On the spiritual path, Cittar Yogam leads us to supreme knowledge and eternal bliss in the union of the individual Self with the universal Self. Yogam is that supreme, cosmic principle. It is the light of life, the universal creative consciousness that is always awake and never sleeps; that always was, always is, and always will be.
Many thousands of years ago in Southern India, Cittars (wise men and saints) explored nature and the cosmos in their practices and meditations. They discovered the laws of the material and spiritual realms and gained an insight into the connections within the universe. They investigated the cosmic laws, the laws of nature and the elements, life on earth and the powers and energies at work in the universe - both in the external world as well as on a spiritual level. The unity of matter and energy, the origin of the universe and the effects of the elementary powers have been described and explained in the Vedas. Much of this knowledge has been rediscovered and confirmed by modern science.
From these experiences and insights a far-reaching and comprehensive system known as Cittar Yogam originated and gave us today valuable, practical instructions for the body, breath, concentration, relaxation and meditation. The practices that this Cittar Journey offers have therefore already proven themselves over thousands of years and have been found to be helpful to many people who have evolved to be great Cittars through time.
The system “Cittar Journey” is taught now being taught at Chidambaram. It is suitable for all age groups - it requires no “acrobatic” skills and also provides the unfit, as well as handicapped, ill and convalescent people, the possibility of practicing Cittar Yogam. The name itself indicates the greatness of this practice and teachings for use in one’s daily life.
