Ananda has been training teachers for almost 40 years. We don’t just teach yoga and meditation—we live it, and so will you. You’ll thrive in the uplifting energy and profound peace of Ananda Village in Northern California, one of the worlds’ most successful spiritual communities. From in-person training to post-graduate support, we help you in every way to become the teacher you truly want to be.

Ananda Meditation helps one become calm, develop concentration, get a balanced perspective on life, and cultivate unshakeable happiness and spiritual magnetism. The spectrum of techniques we share during the training are based on the highest ancient yogic practices of India.

Meditation students practisingStudents practice and teach extensively during the training, with ample guidance and feedback from instructors. Our curriculum prepares you to teach meditation skills to anyone.
