Ananda's teacher training cultivates a great bonding experience where Yogis see the best in each other. This program is not strict like a Sivananda Ashram, but there's a lot of information available to learn if you put the work in. Great food, great pool, great steam room, great staff. This program is not just about poses, its very well thought out and will provide you a plethora of information useful for every aspect of being able to properly teach Yoga.

The experience overall was life-changing. The program was rigorous and benefitted me immensely both physically and spiritually. It combines both aspecs of yoga in a smart and effective way. I left after the program feeling confident that I can start teaching but also very excited to do that.

The yoga lessons, food, massage and the accomodation
Yoga Teacher Training and 7.5 days detox.
Amazing experience with the teacher training. Johnny was an incredible teacher from whom we got the chance to learn a great deal. We were 12 for the training, good group, great encounters and friendships. Johnny had two teacher assistants, Martha & Yafit, who were also of good advice when practice teaching in smaller groups. I would recommend this experience to anyone interested in yoga and deepening their knowledge on the topic.
This is the place to be! Johnny is the best yoga teacher ever (and now a close friend and guru). The place is beautiful and the food awesome! Even if the sea there is not very swimable but they've got a nice pool and a great steam sauna. Everything about this place is just paradise!
I am beyond thrilled I chose Ananda Resort to do my YTT. The Resort was beautiful - I didn't want to leave! Johnny was an incredible teacher & instantly became a life long friend. I learned more than I expected to & will definitely return for more. Please start a 300 hour YTT! Ali was amazing as well - you guys are doing a wonderful thing for people. Keep it up!
