“An extraordinary immersion in a world of healing and higher consciousness. This is a life-changing program for aspiring yoga teachers, and for the countless lives your teaching will touch in the years to come.”
—Shanti Rubenstone, MD

Uplift and heal others by becoming a certified Ananda Yoga instructor. It’s a great joy to be part of the global movement of professional yoga teachers — helping the stressed masses, yearning to breathe free.

This comprehensive training will give you an extraordinary depth of knowledge and experience in the art and science of hatha yoga, physiology, yoga as a preparation for meditation, working with students’ physical limitations, teaching practicums, and the philosophy of Yoga which underlies the physical poses. One of the unique features of Ananda Yoga is the use of affirmations with each pose to enhance the mental, spiritual, and physical benefits.

Our last two YTT series students loved this immersion experience. Both sessions were full soon after they were announced. It was much more than we expected, taking us deep into new relationships and self-discovery. Many found it personally healing.

P.S. You don’t need to become a teacher to participate in this training. You may attend even if your goal is to deepen your own practice.
