Ananda Yoga Teacher Training with Nayaswami Bhajana

About Ananda Yoga

Ananda Yoga Teacher Training is a dynamic, professional training experience — and the only certified yoga teacher training program offered in the highly regarded yoga tradition of Paramhansa Yogananda. We’ve spent more than 30 years shaping it into a first-rate expression of the tradition – a dynamic blend of professional training and personal development.

Ananda helped found the Yoga Alliance, the non-profit group that established national standards for yoga teacher training in USA.

Ananda Yoga Training is in Four parts (200 hrs) :

  • Opportunity to learn for both personal and professional aims.
  • The full training course is divided into four parts.
  • One can choose to do one or all parts, depending on time availability and interests.
  • After the completion of each part, students will receive a certificate of participation for that part.
  • To become a certified Ananda Yoga Teacher, you need to complete all four parts.


This course is open to all and no prior experience or knowledge of yoga is required. We recommend that you attend our Introduction to Meditation class which is regularly offered at all Ananda centers. This will give you an understanding of the core principles behind Ananda teachings. We also suggest you to read Autobiography of a Yogi before starting with the course.
