Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training
Getting Started - 3 Ways to Enter

We are not currently accepting new students in the Ananda Yoga Therapy Training


To be eligible to enroll in the Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training program, the following Pre-Requisites are required:

  • Be a graduate of a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training
  • Have one year of personal practice of yoga
  • Have one year of experience teaching yoga (1 year = 80 hours of teaching yoga)

With these Pre-Requisites in mind, there are three different ways to get started.

1 – Graduate from Ananda Yoga® Teacher Training

  1. Having graduated from Ananda Yoga® Teacher Training (AYTT), you will need to have taught yoga for a year or 80 hours. Keep a log of your yoga teaching experience.
  2. Complete the online application.
  3. Contact us if you need any questions answered. We look forward to help you start this wonderful path!

2 – Graduates of Yoga Teacher Training not of Ananda

  1. We require those who took their YTT from a different school take our Bridge to Ananda Yoga program.
  2. If you have already taught for a year, we still require you to have taught at least 30 hours of yoga in the Ananda Yoga style. Make a log of your yoga teaching experience.
  3. Complete the online application.
  4. Contact us if you need any questions answered. We look forward to help you start this wonderful path!

3 – Yoga enthusiasts looking for a career change

  1. Take Ananda Yoga Teacher Training for your 200-hour certification.
  2. Start teaching Ananda Yoga. IAYT educational standards require at least 1 year of experience teaching yoga before officially entering a Yoga Therapy Training program (our definition of 1 year = 80 hours). Make a log of your yoga teaching experience.
  3. Complete the online application.
  4. Contact us if you need any questions answered. We look forward to help you start this wonderful path!

Another great way for any past graduate of AYTT or another tradition to deepen their offerings is to take one or both of our stand alone courses. Restorative Yoga Teacher Training & Seniors and Bone Strength courses are offered to any YTT graduate at any point in their teaching experience. Both of these classes are part of Ananda Yoga Therapy Training. Because these skills and knowledge is so needed in the yoga community, we offer these two classes to any graduate of a yoga teacher training. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about these courses or anything else about our trainings we can answer for you.
