Gyandev McCord

About The Teacher

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.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
