    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

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.

    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.
