Why should you go to a YTT?

Ok, you’ve got the regular yoga practice, the daily meditation and you’ve been doing yoga for the past 5 years… it’s time to take it to the next level and start teaching yoga, right?

Or, you’ve always loved yoga and helping others so doing a yoga teacher training seems like the rational next step, isn’t it?

Deciding when the “right time” to do your YTT isn’t easy, especially if you have no idea when the “right time” is! So here’s the secret: there is no “right time.”

If you practice yoga then you already know everything flows to the next step/asana/project/etc. when it’s ready. NOT when it’s “right.” If you are ready to take your yoga practice to the next level then you’re ready for a YTT. It’s as simple as that.

A YTT is for anyone who is ready to immerse themselves more deeply into the study and practice of yoga. That’s it. If that sounds like you then congratulations, you’re ready for a YTT!

Our YTTs provide 200 hours of hands-on yoga training in topics such as: anatomy, philosophy, yoga sequencing, and meditation. Students receive 3 organic, gourmet, super healthy and delicious meals each day, lodging in luxurious cabinas boasting unforgettable ocean and jungle views, and a new yoga family that will love and support you along the way.

Not only will you finish your YTT fully certified to go out and teach yoga but you will be in the best shape of your life physically, mentally and emotionally.

And if you don’t want to teach yoga but you still want all that good stuff? A YTT is for you, too. Seriously. Remember: a YTT is just another step on your yoga journey. There is no “right” way to go on this journey. There is only your way because this is your journey.

At Anamaya we’ve had students who’ve graduated from the YTT program to go out into the world and… not teach. And that’s awesome because it shows us how powerful and personal a YTT can be; it’s a tool to allow you to teach yoga or the vehicle to change your life (or both!). But how you use it is up to you. There’s no right or wrong way.

So if you’re looking for a sign to do your YTT, this is it. Go out there and DO it. The world is yours for the taking, your life is yours for the changing.  If you’re ready, we’re here to help you move forward. Learn more about how you can join us for our next YTT by emailing us at [email protected]m or reaching out to us here. We can’t wait to see you shine.

Still not convinced? Check out these experiences from past guests:

“I also attended the September YTT. It was a phenomenal program, unlike anything I can describe here. I highly recommend Anamaya, the staff are amazing, Jackie Chiodo is an incredible Yoga teacher. The physical place is even more beautiful then the pictures allow and the food is to die for! Well worth it!”

“I spent three weeks at Anamaya in January for a yoga teacher training, which was beyond excellent. The resort itself is utterly beautiful, set amongst nature but with a high level of luxury. The yoga decks and provisions were perfect, as were the staff who were all so friendly and professional. I was lucky enough to have a room with a semi outdoor bathroom and a private terrace with a hammock. I would definitely recommend Anamaya.”

“This the most amazing resort I have visited. The energy and beauty of this place goes far beyond anything you can imagine from looking at their pictures. The staff make you a part of their family and you could not ask for anything more from them. As for the yoga teacher training, I never imagined I would go through such a positive transnational program and feel such a great change in myself. Thank you for the amazing program….. and thank you for having everything organized so perfectly so I could just focus on my own journey and enjoy every minute of it!!”
