Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 (200 Hour Certification)

Rather than focusing only on the physical body, Ananda Yoga harnesses the subtle energy of each asana, channeling it inward and upward. As an Ananda Yoga teacher, you will experience and share the higher states of awareness attainable through each asana.

We will learn the classic Hatha Yoga postures (asanas) with a focus on the subtler aspects such as breath awareness (pranayama), prana (energy) in the spine and chakras, affirmations, safe yoga practice, individual modifications, 8-Fold Path & yoga sutras, spiritual awakening, anatomy, and much more!

Completion for credit of the Raja & Hatha Yoga Intensive is a requirement of Ananda Yoga Teacher Training.

11 Weekends Beginning September in Bothell:

Sep 8-10, Sep 22-24, Oct 6-8 (Weekend Retreat), Oct 20-22, Nov 3-5, Nov 18 (Sat only), Dec 8-10, Jan 6 (Sat only), Jan 19-21, Feb 2-4, Feb 16-18 (Graduation).  (Weekends are Fri evening 7-9:30pm, Saturday 9am to 6pm, and Sunday afternoon 1 to 5:30pm.)

“Ananda Yoga covers aspects of yoga practice that were missing in my life.” – P.S., Seattle

“I enjoyed every aspect of this super-informative course. The anatomy section was just superb! A well-balanced format.” – M.D., Carnation

“I came to this program with a lot of information from all my years of yoga studies, but it was in bits and pieces. This program gave me a solid foundation and filled in all the gaps. It was an amazing process. I feel confident and ready to teach.” – D.D., Bothell
