Gyandev McCord

Author. Speaker. Retreat & seminar leader. Meditation & yoga teacher. Yoga teacher trainer. Life coach.

Gyandev is the worldwide director of Ananda Yoga® and Ananda Yoga Teacher Training. He also co-founded Yoga Alliance, the nonprofit organization that sets standards for training yoga teachers in the United States; he currently is on the Alliance’s Board of Directors, and he heads its Standards committee. Gyandev has a PhD in Mathematics (Operations Research) from Stanford University.

Gyandev says: “The supreme practicality of yoga appeals to my scientific nature. I love its emphasis on direct experience, not mere belief, as the criterion of truth. And it works—I’ve seen yoga offer a solution to every problem I’ve faced. Sharing these solutions with others is both a joy and a privilege.”

Before beginning his work with Ananda, Gyandev was a management consultant in San Diego and in Silicon Valley, California. He has managed two businesses, and is also a professional storyteller.

Just as the eye cannot see itself,
The mind cannot know itself.
As such, all knowing must spring from that which is vaster. Wu Hsin
