Every year since 1968, Six Month Residential Yoga Teachers Training and Sadhana Courses have been offered in a Guru Kula setting from October 2nd through March 25th at Ananda Ashram and The International Center for Yoga Education and Research (ICYER) in Podicherry India.


This yoga training program was established by Yogamaharishi Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri, who personally conducted the course from 1968 until he left his body on December 29, 1993.

The courses are now being led by his son Yogacharya Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani, a trained medical doctor, and Yogacharini Meenakshi Devi Bhavanani, the wife and chief disciple of Swami Gitananda Giri.

An International Yoga Teachers Training Certificate is also awarded to successful candidates. The total working course time is approximately 1,400 hours in the six months, of which 700 hours are devoted to theory and 700 to actual practices. A special one-year Advanced Teacher Training Course is also available.

For those who want to learn yoga in India and are interested in a genuine residential yoga gurukul experience, ICYER is amoung the best yoga schools India has to offer and their 6-month program is highly recommended.
