One of my favourite part of my jobs is running Online Yoga Teacher Training programs. There is a power in spending a long duration of time - eight months or a full year - walking side by side a group of individuals, being a catalyst for their transformation, and seeing their growth.
Not sure which one is right for you?
Here's a quick guide!
I now run my Online Yoga Teacher Trainings once a year. All of them start in January/February and run for a duration of months (depending on the course content). They are all certified with the Yoga Alliance.

Yoga Sutra Study The Yoga Sutra Study course is for both students of yoga & teachers of yoga who want to learn more about Pantanjali's Yoga Sutras. Most of modern yoga is based on Pantanjali's Yoga Sutras - an ancient text of 196 sutras, or threads, written thousands of years ago. The Yoga Sutras are a practical textbook to guide your spiritual journey of remembering who you really are. Divided into four chapters, we'll learn about the aims of our practice, the obstacles to our practice, and the rewards of our practice . During this class we will...
