The Yoga Teacher Training program at Ananda Ashram is led by experienced hatha yoga instructors and by Ashram teachers who were trained directly by Founder Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati. All of our YTT faculty members have been practicing and teaching for many years. Senior staff instructors have lived in residence at the Ashram, studying and integrating the teachings in their daily life for thirty years or more. This program is designed so that the expertise of each faculty member is transmitted to students in a direct, inspiring, encouraging and transformative way.
