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!


The Ananda Institute of Living Yoga will be offering Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) at the 200 hour level for 2020-2021. YTT will be offered both online and in-person with an anticipated starting date in September 2020. This course is approved through Yoga Alliance. 

Exact dates and details will be forthcoming within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned! Please email Michelle David at if you are interested.
