  • Online Yoga Teacher Training?

    I never knew you could take yoga teacher training online since there's a physical component involved in yoga. Aura Wellness Center has an online program called "The Original Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-box" and it's a 240 hour course that includes books and DVDs. The overall cost is around $600, which is much more affordable for me than most training programs. The best part for me is I can do it at my own pace too and in the end, they mail you a certification. What are your thoughts about this self-study yoga training program? Are there other things I should be taking into account before enrolling in this? Thank you in advance. I've added a link to their website for your reference.
    Aura Wellness Center provides best in class Yoga teacher certification courses online and empowers students all over the world to become professional Yoga instructors.

    I'm still skeptical on how you can learn all the material online. I've actually heard some pretty good feedback on it so maybe I'm just old school. I understand that you can learn a portion of the training online but who is there to help you on your physical aspect of the training? I think I'd still prefer to take the training in person, but there are definitely a lot of pros to doing this online.

      In the pursuit of finding a great job that can help people stay in great shape, many individuals are looking into yoga teacher training. This training can be the stepping stone to a lucrative career that can really help you maintain good health and balance. While some like to go to classes in person, others opt to take yoga teacher training courses online instead.

      There are many benefits to taking the classes online. You can pretty much set your own schedule. The yoga teacher training courses available through Internet instruction can be completed in a year or less. Basically, certification through some of these organizations is measured by hours.

      In order to earn a yoga teacher training certificate at level one would require 200 hours of study. You should beware of organizations that write out diplomas indiscriminately. If you are not held to high standards, then you can expect that your yoga teacher training program is not really up to snuff.

      Remember that the minimum number of hours to complete level-one training is 200 hours. If an organization certifies you with less than that number of hours under your belt then you might want to consider a different yoga teacher training program completely.

      Even though the notion of getting through the program quickly is appealing, it does no one any good. You definitely want to take yoga teacher training seriously and getting by on the minimum or less than the minimum may come back to haunt you in the future. Health and fitness is a very serious field of study even when it seems like a breeze.

      This is a very demanding industry that requires dedication and skill. Your yoga teacher training program should reflect that in its teachings. The program should also prepare you to teach yoga in a number of different places and circumstances. You should be prepared whether you are working one-on-one or with a group of individuals in a public place.

      The efficient yoga training at level 2 is 500 hours. It is a great idea to invest the extra time and money to reach this level of certification. You can find better jobs and more consistent work if you have dedicated yourself to a higher level of education.

      The good news is that you can complete your yoga teacher training in as long as an entire year or in as little as three months. If you really put your mind and heart into to program you will find yourself where you want to be in the near future.
