What a fantastic course! I learned so much from the curriculum, other students, and the course instructors. This meditation teacher training is superbly organized and allows the student to grow instrumentally in their meditation teaching skills through various learning modalities. After completing this course I can confidently say that I feel more than capable to start teaching beginner meditators. Hands down, this is one of the best courses I have ever participated in as a student. Not only did I learn how to teach meditation, but this course helped deepen my own personal meditation practice, that alone is well worth the price of admission!
Thank you! This course was the most structured, deep, intense and the most clear course I ever did. Led by great, highly advanced souls, this course is created to reach everybody to become a channel to spread the peace and divinity of meditation. The course is perfect and unique in itself. It helps one’s own development of teaching with structure, simplicity and deep intuition at the same time. After completing the course one will feel perfectly prepared and secure to go out and begin to teach.
I completed the Meditation Teacher Training Course through Ananda about a month ago. Gyandev and Diksha are not only naturally gifted and highly experienced teachers, but they live the material they teach, and have done so for decades. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for being taught by them. How could one ask for more than teachers who have dedicated their lives fully to what they teach? Words alone cannot describe what I have learned from them about teaching Ananda Yoga :) Yogananda’s teachings have always been my path and Gyandev and Diksha imbue Yoganada’s teachings with Joy and Love.
The course is masterfully organized, and designed to make students very familiar with Ananda meditation and successful at teaching. The progression allows students to build on the foundation of the classical technique that is taught. The many topics that are discussed allow for wonderful student discussions and enhanced learning. Confidence and passion for teaching, personal growth and understanding, and so much more are the results and gifts of this wonderful class.
This course was engaging and inspiring. It helped to deepen my understanding of meditation and has added depth to my daily practice. I found the teachers to be wise and supportive, and it was cool to connect and learn online with people from all around the world. Before I started this course, I felt unsure of my ability to teach others. By the end of the course I felt confident in my ability to help others discover the benefits of meditation.
This ten week course offers a comprehensive and thorough grounding to teach meditation to beginners while also deepening your own meditation practices. This is the way education should be and everyone deserves this caliber of teaching and learning in order to support and uplift oneself and others through meditation.
Every aspect of this online course has been designed and created with the highest standard of education. The teachers, the supporting assistants were incredibly responsive to questions, inspiring in their feedback and gave consistent guidance to keep us focused. The curriculum offered rich and inspiring resources, such as videos, readings, a manual and audio recordings. Learning to make videos was an incredibly effective methodology that taught me how to prepare for teaching, how to communicate clearly, simply and correctly. I feel a level of confidence to go forward and share meditation as a beautiful life skill with others. This course will also make you a better student of life!
After having wanting to do this course already in 2020 and 2021 I finally had the opportunity & blessing to participate. I only wished I had done it earlier. Even though I am meditating since some years, I learnt a lot about simple but highly important basics that many long-time may lack of.
This course is very well structured and a lot of fun. The energy is always very high and I felt very connected to my companions. Through this, amazing discussions and interactions with other students (& new friends), assistants and the teachers popped up and inspired each other.
The manual, videos & audios of this course are priceless, providing deep yet simple information and allow beginners and advanced students to participate similarly with high focus & energy.
Deepen your own practice and learn how to share your practice & vibrations as a teacher.
Are you ready for your next step? :)
Thank you for sharing with us your heartfelt energy and the teaching of Hong Sau. The course was great and 100 % perfect. I am grateful for this journey and all the experience I gained for my own practice and my teaching. Also, I met wonderful people from all over the world and in terms of online courses, I doubt there is a better one out there. The material will be useful to have for the rest of my life and I sure will keep up practicing with the recordings.
I don’t know that there is another course like this anywhere in the world. The standard of teaching at Ananda goes above and beyond any previous teaching experience that I have been exposed to. This training requires a great deal of energy and commitment, to the students supreme benefit. Even if you have taken another meditation teacher training, this course will help you to understand the fundamental principles that guide all meditation practices. What makes this course unique is its clarity of content, dynamic joyful energetic teachers, and its origins in the teachings of a true Master, Paramhansa Yogananda. Set aside any doubts you may have about taking a course online because this course delivers everything and more than an in-person experience. Truly a Joy to be a part of this journey. Blessings, David
An incredible course. Even if you think you’ve been meditating for a long time, you’ll always learn something new here in this course. It helped me go deeper into my meditation and gain more understanding of the ins and outs of meditation. Great, I am so grateful and happy for this great experience! Incredibly structured, very disciplined and great teachers and assistants who are always motivating.
Namaste & Thank you
This is a terrific course for learning a meditation practice that is broadly adaptable, from secular settings to more spiritual ones. The online format is extremely well-organized and all supporting material is excellent. The instructors are very experienced, and available/responsive to questions. I spent years in online education and this is a stand-out course.
This course is the most elegant, organized and comprehensive course that I’ve ever taken, even exceed some offline coursers to some extent. I’ve practiced meditation for two years and meditation teacher for half a year and this training equipped me with tools, insights and blessings. The instructors are knowledgable and always accessible. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in exploring meditation and spiritual daily life to take this training.
Plus, the global community of students is also a blessing.
I have practiced yoga for 14 years, and taken many yoga teacher trainings in the past few years, some local, and some from very well-known teachers.
I have taught a few classes. And now I choose this extended time of learning as a personal seeking, immersing myself, at this point in my life.
Ananda Meditation Teacher Training (and Ananda Restorative Training) have exceeded my expectations. Ananda is extremely organized, thorough, and comprehensive. Even though the trainings were completely online, the instructors (Gyandev and Diksha) were very accessible. No detail is left out. I learned a lot about online technology as well. I highly recommend Ananda OMTT.
A transformational experience for me and everyone I’ve shared this with. Simple and powerful with endless layers of subtlety and exploration. And, on a practical level, they provide you all the tools you need to take this practice from your mat to the marketplace.
This class is a blessing.
In my 20 year professional career, this virtual class was the best I’ve participated in yet. All aspects of the course exceeded my expectations: content, instructors, diverse media formats of instruction and communication, formal course organization and structure. All have been well thought out and executed flawlessly. Hearing different stories from the instructors, and the interaction time with my fellow students were most valuable to me. Those opportunities helped me develop a deeper understanding of the content and ways to apply techniques and approaches learned to real world situations.
I highly recommend this course to anyone seeking Meditation-Teacher Training no matter what one’s path is. It’s universal and timeless and is rewarding beyond teaching meditation and yoga classes. You’ll find yourself not only more uplifted and more enthusiastic about teaching, but you will also walk away feeling more inspired and enlightened in your own life and the path you’re seeking.
With great pleasure, I recommend the Ananda Online Meditation Teacher Training Course! I have taking many Ananda courses, and they never disappoint. This course appears to be the graduate education in Ananda Yoga! Course directors Gyandev and Diksha’s attention to detail and experience in not only teaching people meditation but also teaching people to teach mediation was more than apparent. The course was well organized and the take home points on how to improve one’s own meditation practice as well as how to effectively teach traditional mediation were clear and relevant to take directly into the studio. The techniques they used to teach adult learners in the form of succinct lectures, required written discussion sections, experiential Sadhanas illustrating the techniques in action, preparation of lesson plans, and then demonstration of actually teaching those lessons plans to zoommates and then to model students on video thus allowing self- and instructor-review were all tremendously effective. As a student I knew what was expected of me, and the team of instructors from the course directors to the support staff was always available to answer questions in a timely manner. I have been through a great deal of education in my lifetime, and over the years I have experienced teachers that teach and encourage, as well as those who teach and discourage. The Ananda team is most definitely a group that have honed their skills to be part of the teach and encourage gathering.
This week, I came across a greeting card that read: “Blessed are the givers and grateful are the receivers.” I immediately thought of Ananda. I am grateful to the Ananda team for what they have given me, and I am blessed to be able to now give the gifts they have taught me. The expanding light continues to expand so brightly! Thank you!
Incredibly thorough, well-designed training! Coursework includes readings, videos, 10 practice teachings, journal entries, discussion forums, and plenty of meditation practice. Students are deeply grounded in one specific meditation style taught by Yogananda—and will feel confident sharing this technique with others.
I was blown away by how amazing this course was. It exceeded my expectations. The online components were well organized. The instructors were amazing. My learning was supported and nurtured throughout. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to become a teacher or improve their own meditation practice.
The Online Meditation Teacher Training has been a life changing experience for me. It’s the best online course I have taken. I am very impressed with the whole structure of this course. Every detail has been carefully tailored to help us develop the ability to teach and also to deepen our own meditation practice. I feel confident to teach meditation in an individual or group setting. There is plenty of practice, plenty of feedback, plenty of reading material, self-quizzes, journaling, discussion forums, sadhanas to help us deepen our own practice.
The knowledge and care of all the instructors is invaluable. They gave us all the support needed along the course. Once we finish the course we get connected with a community of graduates to continue learning and supporting each other.
I feel deeply grateful with Gyandev and Diksha and all the team of instructors for making possible this life changing experience.
Overall, I feel this class is thee most thorough and expansive class I have ever taken and would recommend it to anyone interested in further exploring and pursuing their own spirituality and assisting others on the same path. It is something you don’t want to miss out on, especially with the current state of the world, it is essential to dive inward and move upward.
Thank you all so much for the dedication and ample time that goes into this course, your devotion to the material, teachings and to the Gurus is really what sets the pace for the class.
This course has been an amazing ride. It’s been one of the most challenging and strenuous experiences of my life, but I feel so much stronger because of it.
I feel that the Online format of the course has allowed the ideas and lessons to truly cement in my brain, and for my own meditation practice to grow in such a steady way that by the end of it I felt as if I’ve always practiced with such attention, and that I’ve always known how to answer difficult questions about meditation.
Their wealth of knowledge born of years of experience was pouring from our teachers was a treasure trove we dug into hungrily, and our wonderful teachers have reviewed each answer, each video submissions.. I felt there was always someone listening, ready to engage, guiding me along.
I didn’t take this course out of a desire to become a meditation teacher, I took it because I wanted to learn how to talk with people about my greatest passion, and I did. But I got so much more than that in the process.
I warmly recommend you to sign in and experience it for yourselves.
An excellent, well-designed programme. The depth in which certain aspects are described is admirable, even so after taking Lessons in Meditation. This will enhance one’s personal practice even more than before, ever so essential before teaching other people. The dedication and effort with which the instructors have invested time and energy is admirable. The course encourages teamwork and discipline, as well as improving one’s time management.
This program is a great opportunity for further growth and I highly recommend going for it.
You can hardly help but transform your individual meditation practice when you take part in this profoundly enriching Meditation Teacher Training with Gyandev and Diksha. They are Master Teachers. Through creative interchange, readings, research, affirmations, visualizations, meditations , quizzes, journaling activities and even a cross word puzzle, you will learn the science and art of meditation. In being taught to teach others, you will be given precise instruction. You will experience the art of meditation in the deeply inspiring guided sadhana practices. You will find yourself wanting to dive ever more deeply into these teachings.
Gyandev and Diksha are very knowledgeable and experienced practitioners and teachers of meditation. They have created a well organized online course, with great anticipation of the student’s needs. I feel more confident now to share meditation with others, while also deepening and refining my own understanding of these teachings. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to become a meditation teacher or to go deeper in their own personal practice. I have a lot of gratitude to Gyandev, Diksha and all the others behind the scenes that have made this course available. Thank you :)
This Meditation Teacher Training is beyond my expectation. The course structure was great, and very effective. It takes me from a beginner to a confidence meditation teacher in such a short period of time. I really like the discussion forum, where I learned from others perspectives and how they approach challenges. EOTO sessions helped me practiced with others and be confidence in my approach and also sharpen my teaching skill.
Thank you, Gyandev, Diksha and all others staffs behind the scene for making this program availble.
This was one of the best courses I’ve ever taken. I took it mainly to help deepen my own meditation practice, which it did, but it also had a profound transformational impact on my spiritual journey, and on my entire life. In terms of the teacher training part, I thought it might be intimidating at first, but it was quite the opposite. It quickly helped me develop the confidence and skill to teach meditation, and now I’m excited to teach. The course work was always interesting, and the teaching sessions with fellow students were a great way to practice and improve our skills, and get to know each other personally as well. Gyandev and Diksha are wonderful teachers, who are truly dedicated to the successful journey of everyone in the class. They are always available with thoughtful, insightful and encouraging commentary and feedback. It was truly a blessing to be a part of this class, and I look forward to continuing my teacher training with them at the next levels!
I loved both the in-person and online course (I started the training in-person, but due to Coronavirus, had to finish the course online). Gyandev and Diksha know what they are talking about, and have created an excellent, well organized training. I felt that I learned everything I need in order to be a successful teacher, while deepening my own meditation practice. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to become a meditation teacher.
Truly loved taking the Meditation Teacher Training course. I took the course online and it was an amazing opportunity to experience Ananda’s teachings and have the flexibility to integrate it into my life with a full work and family life schedule. Gyandev and Diksha are incredible teachers and their joy and passion for teaching and the practice are so inspiring. The course is well organized and super user friendly to navigate through and there is a perfect blend of content materials, learning videos and live integration with periodic meetings and practice sessions. After taking the course, I feel very comfortable in teaching meditation in my current environment and look forward to expanding that network and circle in sharing the meditation teachings. Loved everything about it!!!
Wow! This course was way more than I expected. I’ve been a long-time meditator and have attended many workshops and classes. The Ananda Teacher Meditation Course is well-designed and well-implemented. It is a commitment, that needs extra time, especially if you’re working full-time, as I was. It is well-organized, so it is easy to follow along and catch-up, if you lose pace.
Gyandev and Diksha are radiant instructors. They live the life of Paramahansa Yogananda and Swami Kryananda, so the course is authentic, which I loved the most about the course. The program is designed with many activities from live webinars to readings, from videos to Zoom meetings to teach your own student(s) (online course).
I highly recommend this course. It is efficient and comprehensive. After the class ended, I definitely felt well-prepared to teach.
While researching on Yoga and Meditation, I came across a book Autobiography of a Yogi. The book inspired me to look for a Teachers Training course in Meditation that can give me the capability similar to Paramahansa Yogananda to pass on the great knowledge of the spiritual leader in the world.
I couldn’t have found a better place. The course is well structured, paced, sufficient depth on mediation and associated fields required for teachers to answer question. It never felt an online certification. The EOTO session gave a hands on experience to being a teacher and a student. The Sadhanas, Videos, Manual answered most of the questions. I was blessed to have teachers like Diksha and Gynadev. Open Transparent with immense depth in the field of Yoga and Meditation. I am proud to be an Ananda mediation teacher and will spread the goodwill.
Heartfelt Thank you!
An excellent, informative course, with wise, caring instructors. I am happy that I made the effort to complete the Ananda Meditation Teacher Training – I feel it will be an invaluable asset in my further life and work.

I was researching for meditation course for a very long time . Finally here I am ANANDA Meditation Teacher Training Course. I am glad I joined it. The Course is very detailed and covered all the aspect of how to teach meditation. Enjoyed every second of it.
Diksha and Gyandev are great teachers . Introduced us to the other meditation teachers to practice with. That helped me a lot. I got connected with Jayanti and she was so helpful and willing to help anytime.
The videos were, great they were fun to watch and as well as very detailed . Quiz were so helpful . EOTOs were great to get connected with students and to enhance our meditation practices. Energization is a great tool to bring into ones life. Sadhanas were great, especially slowly increasing the length of the Sadhana’s so that one doesn’t be overwhelmed.
It has given me a great deal of confidence .
On the whole the course was GREAT!
I am glad I will be an Ananda Certified Teacher.
Thanks a lot Gyandev and Diksha.
Outstanding course. It is life changing experience having deepened both my personal practice and my understanding of the practice. A true gift for me and those I share this practice with.
Ananda OMTT is a true gift to anyone searching for a meditation teacher training that is whole, detailed and pregnant with knowledge. Diksha & Gyandev are masterly in their teaching techniques and disseminating the information comprehensively from beginning to end. This course far exceeded my expectations and has given me the confidence to teach meditation because of the solid foundation the program is based on. The student is given every opportunity and tool to succeed and grow to their fullest potential in teaching meditation. This is achieved through endless resources, constant group and one-on-one communications and webinars with Gyandev and Diksha, who are constant in their gifts of love, support enlightenment and boundless proficiencies. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to be certified through Ananda.
Absolutely, the way to spend quarantine! Seriously, this course is very well designed; it is obvious the instructors, Gyandev and Diksha, put their heart and soul into this course. The instructors are available to answer questions through email and during the zoom meetings.
The information deepened my own meditation and has given me enough material to use for years in my class.
I was looking for a meditation teacher course that was affordable with a spiritual focus, this was it! I also learned how the brain is changed through meditation! The information about the brain is appropriate for any audience because the changes in the brain happen no matter what religion you are or background you may have! So glad, I took this course, it has and will change my life!
I joined this course to enhance my meditation practice and to teach meditation to people in my close social circle. I’m absolutely happy with the lessons and the guidance; meditation is becoming a joyful experience. Thank you Gyandev and Diksha
I loved this course! It gives clear and objective teachings while helping us to go deeper in our own practice. It’s very well structured and dynamic. It kept me motivated all the way through the 10 units. Super recommend!
I´m so glad that I signed up for this course. It has met my expectations and more. It is well-laid out and the teachers Gyandev & Diksha are dedicated and very knowledgeable. It has given me the necessary knowledge and tools to start working as a meditation teacher. It has also deepened my own practice hugely. So if you are looking for meditation teacher training, this is an excellent choice.
It is an absolutely brilliant & extremely well thought out course! You will learn so much & your life will be all the better for it. You will be supported & extremely educated. Gyandev & Diksha are absolutely the most helpful & wonderful teachers! The course will aid you in real life situations of teaching meditation. If you are like me, the technology part of the course was intimidating at first but it really is super easy to get the hang of it. I strongly & loving recommend this valuable course!
Thanks for the guidance of Gyandev and Diksha in this online training program. I feel very grateful and blessed to be trained by such highly qualified, caring teachers.This makes me a better teacher by understanding the needs of the students giving them various aids to uplift and bringing awareness of their self and help them find stillness in meditation.Thank You.
I feel confident in my ability to teach effectively as a result of taking this most excellent meditation training. I have taken other courses at Ananda and will continue to gain knowledge through their marvelous curriculum. Thank you Diksha and Gyandev.
I am thoroughly enjoying this online course! My personal sadhana and meditation teaching skills have noteworthily improved. Gyandev and Diksha are doing an excellent job of being present and guiding us along the way. I highly recommend this training course. I plan to continue taking courses with Ananda.
Incredible course. Incredible instructors. Incredible classmates. So well constructed and thought out. Thorough, engaging, challenging and enriching. It was exactly what I was hoping for and more.
Thanks to this excellent class I can better serve my local Ananda community by offering meditation classes. Feeling confident and well-trained, I’ll begin my first classes next month! Thank you Diksha and Gyandev and JLove and all the helpers who made this such an enriching experience. Thank you for your good work in the world. And for the humor so skillfully woven into the course content.
The online meditation teacher training course brings online training to a new level. It’s the perfect balance between readings, viewings and interactions. The course amazingly dissolves time zones, allowing great personal and group interactions.
With a wealth of knowledge and experience Gyandev and Diksha guide you through the course bringing boundless energy and joy into the class.
This course sets you up perfectly for Yoga meditation teaching, but even more importantly the course embraces and embodies the true essence of Yoga.
I am truly grateful for Nayaswami Diksha and Gyandev and the Ananda community.
After being a part of Ananda Online Courses for several years, it seemed a natural transition to take the OMTT course. It certainly was a supportive online community of dedicated people from around the world. The course is very interactive and well designed. I recommend the course to deepen your practice and continue your education. It is time well spent, in a positive uplifting atmosphere. Gyandev and Diksha are very committed, amazing meditation teachers and very responsive to their students. Thank you Gyandev, Diksha and Ananda for your dedication!
Participating in the Ananda Meditation Teacher Training Online course has been a wonderful experience. I have grown hugely in knowledge, skills and joy. I loved the precision of the training and the regularity and promptness of the course’s high quality constructive feedback. The course manual, videos and audio resources were highly professional- not to mention the multiple aids on the accompanying free Ananda Meditation App. I will, no doubt, be using these resources, both personally and in my spiritual teaching work, for years to come. Our expert teachers Diksha and Gyandev led by example; the depth of their spirituality, their insightful stories, and their personal examples were highly motivating and compelling. Their sense of balance and humour was really appealing. The online platform design was also fantastic; it was very consistent in its layout, easy to navigate, and it facilitated a greated variety of interesting learning opportunities. Community among the world-wide online participants was made possible by the course’s inventive collaborative exercises; that was exciting. I now feel confident to teach meditation, both face-to-face and online, and I feel excited about my future as a meditation teacher. Thank you to a wonderful Ananda team!
My meditation teaching skills and personal sadhana is all the better for this superb program. I felt as if Gyandev and Diksha were with me every step of the way. I highly recommend this training program, its the real deal.
For a long time I’ve wanted to be able to share the spiritual treasure I’ve found in meditation with others. I’ve shared a few basics with friends but as a disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, I was thrilled when I discovered the opportunity to take Ananda Meditation Teacher Training online. My schedule as owner and part time driver of an over the road trucking company as well as being the primary helper for my aging parents, makes it impossible to attend an in-person course at this time. I became an RYT200 Yoga Teacher with the idea of helping truckers get a little more fit and limber but it’s been difficult finding interested drivers. Meditation on the other hand, has become something that has caught on and is widely accepted. I meet many people interested in learning to meditate. Gyandev and Diksha are amazing teachers, very personable and quick to answer all questions. The course materials from the manual and great articles to the well produced videos, audio, recorded sadhanas are enjoyable, educational, inspirational. The course flows from one concept to the next smoothly and logically. There are many opportunities to interact and work with the other students, from team projects to practicing teaching each other, as well as group discussions. I now have some new choice friends as well as the skills and confidence I need to teach meditation to others. Thank you Gyandev, Diksha, and Ananda!
I can-not recommend this course highly enough. It is not for the feint hearted, but for the person who is truly serious about becoming a meditation teacher. From start, to finish, you are guided and supported in a way that makes this feel like an in-class course. There is plenty of interaction with fellow students, as well as the teachers Gyandev and Diksha, who are always available, answering any questions in a very short timeframe. You will learn so much more than meditation.
After researching and looking for a meditation certification course for several months, I am 100% delighted I discovered and: ultimately, chose Ananda’s OMTT. The organization, information and connections made through this online course was easy, accessible and informative. From before the course officially started, through each and every step, I felt supported, encouraged and: definitely, part of a larger community. I most definitely recommend this organization to deepen your practice, continue your education and/or add onto existing certifications for your yoga career.
