Teacher Training

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.

Yoga and Meditation website for further information.
