Online Yoga Teacher Training FAQ

Since I announced that I am doing another online yoga teacher training, I've had lots of questions for me about the program! One question people have had is... are online YTTs just as good as in person ones? 

My answer is...they are different, but both amazing.

Here's the benefits you get of doing your YTT online: 

You get to be part of a long term group of individuals, over a long period of time, and share in their journeys as they start to live and integrate yoga. This is very different than in person YTTs, where people are in each others lives for a shorter duration (3 weeks). It works with your schedule. You don't have to take a large period of time off of work, travel overseas, and find a solution for children or pets. If you can't make a live zoom class, it's no problem - you can catch up with the recording afterwards. It is more affordable than a YTT where you travel overseas. Without the cost of food, accommodation, and an airplane ticket, you can save a lot.

So how does the Mindful Life Practice Yoga Teacher Training Online Program Work? 

It's split up into seven modules which take place over seven months. The modules are based on the chakras. You'll have between 1 - 5 videos to watch each week and readings accompanying the videos. We'll send a syllabus to you with the videos & the readings to do. You can watch all these videos on the app, so you can download them to watch offline, keep track of what you've already watched, etc. We gather once a week on Zoom together as a sangha (community). The meeting is an opportunity to check in, participate in a group meditation, and ask questions about the content. We'll also take turns practice teaching as the course progresses. Each person gets a chance to practice teach once a module - so in total you get a LOT of opportunities to teach!  At the end of the program, you will get a chance to teach for the community on Zoom. You can invite all of your family and friends to join the call!

What else is included? Current members get a $20/month discount off their YTT tuition ($140 discount) If you're not yet a member, you get a free membership for the duration of the program $20/month for seven months.

 Can I really start teaching yoga after the YTT? YES! And I've actually been amazed at how successful some of my graduates have been! I want to share with you some of my students who have been teaching in person, around the world!
