About

Do you want a vocation rather than just a job? Do you love yoga and want to totally immerse yourself and deepen your practice? Do you want to help people become healthy and de-stressed? Anjali Yoga Teacher Training can help you do just that. Our Yoga Alliance registered 200 hour program is perfect if you want to become a yoga teacher or to deepen your personal practice.

Our program is one weekend a month for a year. This gives the student enough time to absorb the material. During the year, you will be expected to develop and maintain a home practice. Part of that will be attending various yoga classes to observe how other teachers teach and to experience a variety of styles. It is important for a serious student to be aware of the various types of Yoga that are practiced.

We are currently located at various locations in Western PA with our home base being State College, PA.

It should be noted that the course of study of Anjali Yoga is based on the Mt. Nittany Institute curriculum developed by Anne Mascelli in 2001. When Basil learned of the closing of the Mt. Nittany Institute in 2010, he and Tiffany combined their enthusiasm for Yoga by bringing this tried and true Yoga teacher training program to west-central PA. “I believe the opening of Anjali Yoga fills a void left by the closure of the Mt. Nittany Institute and feel that we can offer a fun, all-inclusive YTT program that fulfills the requirements of the Yoga Alliance.” says Basil.

Our Yoga features an attention to the detail of alignment of the classical postures of Patanjali, codified more than 4,000 years ago. Our approach is one of gentleness and compassion for the Self and a continual returning to the experience of the present moment. Each student’s strengths and limitations are respected as a doorway to learning, self-awareness, and compassion for others. Students of all shapes and sizes, and from all Yoga traditions are welcome.

Learn to teach all the elements of basic level Hatha Yoga classes, including:

• Postures

• Breathing practices

• Relaxation

• Meditation

• Expand and deepen your personal practice of Yoga while delving into this timeless meditation-in-motion

“Basil and Tiffany truly care about their students and always go the extra mile during training to assist us in any way they can. Their experience and professionalism are outstanding. YTT through Anjali Yoga is an outstanding program that is assisting me more fully in my home practice.” -Anna-Marie, current YTT student

I heartily endorse the Anjali Yoga Teacher Training as it carries on the important work of training Yoga Teachers. Based on the Mt. Nittany Institute program, which ran for 8 years and graduated over 100 students, Basil and Tiffany are continuing this comprehensive and compassionate approach to classical Yoga teacher preparation with their own infectious enthusiasm and thorough preparations. Anjali will provide every student with a wonderful opportunity to grow personally and professionally through Yoga. Take this program and you will see your Yoga and your life blossom in many ways.
