  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    I have just completed my online yoga teacher training with the Yoga Education Institute. I'm thrilled! The material was interesting and thorough, and Nancy's prompt help and responses were invaluable. I live in a rural area where it is difficult to find training, so after researching and asking qualified teachers to help me review and find a good course, I decided on this one. My goal was to attain a deeper understanding of yoga practice and philosophy.  I feel like I now have the knowledge and confidence to delve deeper into my practice, and to share this with others in my community.  Thank you!

  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    The idea of getting yoga instructor training had crossed my mind many times, but I worried I couldn’t be a good instructor because I am not able to do all the postures in textbook perfection. After discovering this online training program, I contacted Nancy. Her encouraging answers to my questions motivated me to get enrolled in the training program. I’m so glad I made this decision. The training manual is well written, easy to understand and follow. The written tests promote thinking and deeper understanding. The assignments are well structured, so after I finished all of them, I truly mastered the material, on paper and in my yoga class room. I feel so much more confident now and my teaching shows it. Several friends were impressed and asked about the training after attending my classes. I highly recommended this training program.

    The yoga institute provided me with a well-rounded understanding of all the components of a well-planned yoga class.

I feel much more confident as a teacher and as a practitioner because of this course.
