Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 (200 Hour Certification)

“Never in my wildest dreams did I know the multitude of ways that AYTT would help me, guide, touch me….so exquisitely beautiful.”  – D.P., Redmond

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 subtle 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!

What students are saying about Yoga Teacher Training:

“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
