online teacher certification

Deepen and advance your yoga teaching skills with online training.

At the 200-hour level, you’ve gained the confidence and basic skills you need to begin teaching, and now it’s time to take the next step. But you have a busy life: teaching, working, mom-ing. You’d love to run away to Bali (pre-Covid) and immerse yourself in yoga training, but let’s face it, that’s just not realistic.

You’re looking for not only more knowledge about philosophy, postures & prana, but some real world guidance in the particulars of earning a bigger paycheck. Perhaps you’re not 100% of what that looks like, but it’s getting harder to ignore the persistent tugging of your heart.
