Our School Is Different...
Great Value Investment - Education costs have reached an all-time high around the world. This is often due to bloated operational costs, pointless real estate, and business infrastructures that have nothing to do with your learning. At YOGABODY, part of our mission to democratize yoga means offering professional education at a price that almost everyone can afford. To make this feasible, we run a lean operation optimized for learning. We leverage our existing facilities in Barcelona, we've pioneered eLearning in the yoga market, and our intensive immersions deliver maximum education at the best possible price.
Guaranteed Job Placement - During Immersion 2, we’ll help you put together an exceptional employment packet, including a resume (CV), cover letter, recommendation letter, video and photos that will help you find your first job. How can we guarantee you'll get your dream job? We can't, but we can guarantee you'll find your first paid teaching gig during our program (and yes, it might just be your dream job too).
Academic Excellence - The Yoga Teachers College offers an international degree program that provides more than double the education offered in a typical certification course, at a level that surpasses every industry standard. On top of that, we require all graduates to achieve an 85 percent (or higher) average score on all tests and assessments, while most schools simply require you to show up in order to graduate. Our commitment to excellence means that a degree from the Yoga Teachers College holds real market value and demonstrates masters-level knowledge earned through study and practice.
Personal Support - We've revived the age-old tradition of apprenticeship. During your studies, you'll have support and guidance every step of the way. You'll have real-time access to ask your mentor questions, get feedback, learn, and grow. If you're struggling with an anatomy module, your mentor will help you get through it. If the public speaking sections are presenting a problem and causing you anxiety, again, your mentor will be there to talk you through it. Mentorship happens via phone and email, as well as in person during your immersions in Barcelona. Post-course, the support continues with job hunting and networking opportunities, monthly refresher courses, and optional annual meet-ups to keep you on top of your game.
eLearning Platform - Technology is changing education worldwide, making it more efficient, fun, and cost-effective. The Yoga Teachers College leverages eLearning for many of the theory-based aspects of yoga teacher training. Whether it's memorizing pose names or learning the anatomy of the knee, our eLearning platform makes deep learning possible in many aspects of yoga education that are often skimmed over at other schools.
Flexible Scheduling Options - How are you going to fit study and practice into your already busy lifestyle? What if you have work or family obligations that make it impossible to take four to eight weeks off to attend a long-term, residential course? To solve the problem of 'not enough time,' we developed a unique program schedule that couples distance learning with in-person immersions. The result is a training program that is not only more convenient, but also gives you more education and more experience at a fraction of the cost.
Exciting Business Opportunities - In addition to job placement, graduates can also qualify to be an authorized YOGABODY regional teacher, a product distributor, or a licensed YOGABODY studio owner. Graduates have the option for total autonomy, of course, but also the option for a true partnership with YOGABODY, where we collaborate to make our shared dreams become a reality.
Join a Global Movement - Graduates have access to our retail manufacturing, studio contacts, graduate’s database, world-renowned experts, and on-going support. The college and brand serve as a support system that you can leverage throughout your teaching career.

Yoga Alliance Reviews [Verify]
Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association in the yoga community, upholding quality standards for yoga teachers and yoga schools. Here’s how our graduates have rated their experience:
"Before the course, I felt anxious, but now I feel really good about my future. It's nice that all the students have the same mentality; we all want to better ourselves through our practice and turn our practice from a lifestyle into a livelihood."
"I think that Lucas is bringing together a system that is accessible to a lot of people, but is still strong and challenging. Also, no one can complain about being in Barcelona for a week doing interesting stuff with interesting people.
What I also liked about the Yoga Teachers College was that from day one we were up in front of our classmates teaching. It's a good way to get rid of any lingering discomfort, stage fright, or problems quickly."
"Personally this was the right course for me because of its strong foundation in Vinyasa Yoga. Once you start the course, you come to realize that no matter how long you've been practicing yoga, you still have so much to learn—not only asanas and movements, but also the deeper biometrics and physiology behind yoga.
Another aspect I enjoyed was meeting a range of people from really different yoga backgrounds with different experiences."
"The online content is very easy to watch, and because it's not only about yoga, it's also interesting. I am learning a lot, I am very happy."
