Good news! Your dreams of becoming a Yoga teacher do not need to be dashed due to the difficult lock down situation in the world today. Our Online Yoga Teacher Training Course is the answer and it is a fast growing business because thousands of yoga students are now interested in doing online yoga training. You may be wondering why? 

At the beginning of the Coronavirus lock down we were unsure if the online training would work but immediately upon starting to promote the courses we could tell that it was going to be successful. Our hopes soured as our first 12 students finished their online course fully satisfied and are now all qualified yoga teachers.

Learning yoga from the root has a different experience. This is why our students encouraged us to go ahead with the online training and we are so grateful to them for this. They have shared their experiences with us and this article is based on the feedback from our online students and their experiences. 

There are many benefits to doing online courses and here I am going to share with you what it is that you can get from online training.

• Best training with highly qualified teachers

• Excellent communication with teachers

• Focused training throughout the course

• Complete understanding of the syllabus

• Affordable price

• Yoga Alliance Certificate

• Easy & comfortable setting

Before you do any yoga teacher training course, whether online or offline, you must understand exactly what you are searching for? If you are able to get everything you need from your training with an online course there is no problem. Of course if you were thinking of coming to Rishikesh or India that is fine too. But this all depends on the current circumstances. Now you have the opportunity to do your teacher training online from the comfort of your own home. Great news!

Best Training:

We have found that during the online training both the students and teachers are relaxed and comfortable due to the fact that they do not need to do any traveling, they have enough time to rest and prepare in their room so they can receive 100% attention and training from the teachers. For this we have prepared a big screen TV for the teacher to communicate with the students and for the asana teacher to be able to see clearly the body positions of the students for clear guidance.

Excellent Communication:

As a student is practicing alone, he or she is always free and able to ask questions. There is a microphone always connected in the ears of the teacher so the communication between teacher and student is very easy. This connection is even better than in normal classes. 

Focused Training:

Online training is more focused then offline because you need to present on time in your classes and there are assignments you need to complete regularly. There is a constant inner flow of guidance from the teachers and from Yogi Vishnu, the ashram Guru, who is directly communicating with the students and teachers to constantly be improving the quality of the training.

Same Syllabus:

The online yoga teacher training course covers almost all the topics that a normal TTC program at any yoga school would teach. As in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Kundalini or whichever yoga style you choose, together with  pranayama, bandhas, mudras, meditation, yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, and so on. With the focused attention on all these subjects the students get a complete understanding of the full syllabus. We have discovered that even the online dance classes are enjoyed very much by the students!

What you will not receive from an online TTC:

The only thing you will miss by doing the online training from home is actually being in Rishikesh and being able to walk down the street and sit by the Ganga but other than this you have the same emotions, feelings and connection with the school and teachers.

Affordable Price:

In the West a yoga TTC would cost about 4000-5000 USD and would take 5-6 months to complete. In the online course you will get 6 hours of training and the rest is self practice and study in order to complete the 200 hour course. The normal TTC training course is about 1000 USD, now with Living Yoga School the monthly online course is about 400-800 USD depending on the type of course. This is much more affordable for students.

Yoga Alliance Certificate & Accreditation:

Our online yoga TTC is accredited by Yoga Alliance and upon successful completion of your course you will be a certified Yoga Teacher and can register with Yoga Alliance to begin teaching yoga.


Online yoga courses do not require the hassle of planning, packing, traveling or worrying about anything. They are conducted from the comfort of your own home or place of choice. This makes it very easy for the student to have an enjoyable and successful teacher training. It also gives one the opportunity of having the best teachers as they can teach from wherever they are.

Although direct teaching is very important and there is a different feel to sitting and learning yoga with the Guru, the screen teachings is a great alternative when there is no other option for direct connection.
