Business of Yoga-starting a successful business as a Yoga Teacher
The Teachings Ananda Yoga Guru Kula 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training is a dynamic, comprehensive, holistic Yoga training. It provides students with a systematic approach to bringing physical, mental and spiritual balance into their life and the lives of their students through ancient and modern practices steeped in the traditions of Ashtanga (8-limbed) Yoga, Classical North Indian Tantra and Ayurveda.
Ashtanga yoga, the eight limb path of yoga as set forth by the ancient sage, Patanjali, not only offers asanas (yoga postures), it also gives students a road map on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. These eight limbs serve as a prescription for moral and ethical conduct and self-discipline (yamas and niyamas); direct attention toward one’s physical and mental health (asanas and pranayamas); and help us to discover and acknowledge the spiritual aspects of our true nature (pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi).
Tantra is an ancient science utilizing the approaches and practices of Bhakti yoga (devotional love of the divine), Karma yoga (selfless service to all beings) and Jnana yoga (right understanding) as propounded by our guru, Shrii Shrii Anandamurtii. Classical Tantra is not, as so often represented, a sexual practice but a comprehensive set of spiritual practices and knowledge for realization of the Self.
Ayurveda is the ancient science of life and longevity. It is the ancient medical system and healing tradition of India and Nepal. Ayurveda is a nature-based system of healing based on the 5 elements: ether, air, fire, water and earth, and is practically and philosophically very closely entwined with yoga.
During training students will practice daily meditation and asanas, learn a comprehensive overview of the breadth and depth of yogic philosophy and practices and begin to explore their own development and union of body, mind and spirit (triputi) through exposure to the richness of the yogic tradition.
Asana Program The style of yoga postures, or asanas, taught in our training is Shakti Sahaja Hatha yoga, a classical system of yoga designed to have a dynamic effect on the physical body, the subtle body, the nervous system, the endocrine (glandular) system, the chakra system, spiritual energy (kundalini) and the vital life force (prana) of each practicing individual. This powerful, holistic practice is deeply therapeutic and is great preventive medicine.

Our Inspiration Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, a spiritual master and renaissance thinker who not only gave profound teachings about spiritual life but also put forward innovative ideas relevant to the development of human society, is our continuing source of inspiration. He was born in a small village in Northern India in 1921; he taught and spiritually guided thousands of people until his physical departure in 1990. He embodied Divinity both in his person and his teachings.
Anandamurti gave a system of spiritual practices rooted in the ancient teachings of classical Tantra and Ashtanga yoga. He deeply believed in the application of yogic principles to daily life and sought to provide a value base for a unified, ecologically attuned humanity that views all life as interconnected and all beings as expressions of One essential consciousness.
