Yoga Teachers College *Online*
Limited Time – Yoga Alliance Approved Curriculum
30 March – 22 May 2020
For the first time ever, all three Yoga Alliance organizations have approved 100% online study for the 200hr certification. This is the standard mat-based yoga teacher certification internationally used by 95% of teachers.
Our usual course involves 3 weeks in-person in Barcelona along with our extensive home-study program. This special course is 100% online, part time, and takes place over 8 consecutive weeks. All the same requirements, all the same curriculum, all the same standards – just virtual.
In case you didn’t know, we’ve been training teachers online since 2010, so this is something we’re extremely skilled at. Are there disadvantages to studying at a distance? Yes of course. But there are also advantages including time to review, practice, and review again. The schedule is much more flexible, and your access to the trainers is even better.

One of the reasons our graduates standout is we require extensive self-practice. You can take classes at local studios or fitness centers, and you can now take at-home video classes as well from any approved platform.
