"If you want to teach yoga, this is the place to go"
If you want to teach yoga, this is the place to go. You will walk away with the skill to teach a full 90 minutes yoga class by your own.
I could not have a better teacher, like Jonny who gave all this passion and knowhow in this course.
The food is super healty and tasty. The Resort comes with a pool and a sauna.
The staff is super helpful

Ananda's teacher training cultivates a great bonding experience where Yogis see the best in each other. This program is not strict like a Sivananda Ashram, but there's a lot of information available to learn if you put the work in. Great food, great pool, great steam room, great staff. This program is not just about poses, its very well thought out and will provide you a plethora of information useful for every aspect of being able to properly teach Yoga.

The experience overall was life-changing. The program was rigorous and benefitted me immensely both physically and spiritually. It combines both aspecs of yoga in a smart and effective way. I left after the program feeling confident that I can start teaching but also very excited to do that.

"So happy I chose Ananda for my YYTT! "
There are so many options around the world, it's hard to chose! Another yogui recommended Ananda to me and I am so happy I made the trip all the way there for my YTT. Excellent, disciplined, kind teachers in a beautiful setting. Demanding program, worth the investment!
