If you have ever considered a career as a
Professional Yoga Teacher,
You’ve come to the right place.

Dear Fellow Enthusiast,
Do you want to become a Yoga teacher? If you have ever considered a career as a professional Yoga instructor, but were not certain where to get straight answers to your biggest questions, about what it’s like to train and work as a professional teacher, then you’ve come to the right place!
I’ve been teaching professionally, since 1987. Since that time, I have also had the privilege of training hundreds of enthusiasts to become internationally certified Yoga teachers and instructors.
(Click here if you would like to read more about my experience.)
The truth is – teaching can be an incredibly rewarding — and profitable — way to earn a living… if you know what you’re doing!
Unfortunately, there are far too many Yoga teacher training camps, and correspondence programs, out there, that only teach their students a small portion of what it takes to start, run, and grow, a successful Yoga teaching practice!
(If you haven’t already, you should download this free report entitled “The Seven Things You Must Know before Enrolling in a Yoga Teacher Training Program.” It contains a lot of information that I wish I had known when I was just getting started.
“It just didn’t seem fair!”
After meeting with over 100 Yoga teachers, who were ill-equipped to start their own teaching practices, and after speaking with dozens of people, who genuinely wanted to become certified Yoga instructors, but who simply couldn’t afford the thousands of dollars that traditional Yoga teacher training costs – not to mention the time they were usually required to take off from work to attend training camps – I decided it was time for me to do something about it.
I wondered whether it would be possible to develop a comprehensive home-study course that would give aspiring teachers all the practical, and business experience, they needed, to build their own successful practices.
At first, I thought it wouldn’t work. After all, how could a Yoga teacher home-study course give students all the same kind of practical, hands-on experience that we were giving to the students who were attending the in-person intensive training at my own top-rated studio in Attleboro, Massachusetts?
You see – I knew that if a home-study Yoga certification course was going to be worthwhile, it would need to contain comprehensive instruction in all of the following areas:
- Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology
- Yogic philosophy
- Teaching methodology
- Assisting with alignment
- Yamas and Niyamas
- Meditation and Relaxation
- Working with special populations
- Teaching Tips
- Teacher Ethics
Of course, just being a great Yoga instructor isn’t enough… I’ve seen many wonderful instructors struggle just to pay their bills, because they didn’t understand how to run a business! With this in mind, I also knew that for a home-study course, specifically designed for teachers, to really deliver, it would also need to tackle crucial topics, such as:
- Teacher Business Development
- Marketing Essentials for Instructors
- Networking Strategies to Build your Client List
On top of all of this, I knew that the Yoga teacher training program that I wanted to offer would also have to fulfill all the requirements necessary, so that students, who complete the course, would be fully recognized. In other words, students not only needed to be completely prepared to work as teachers, they needed to have the professional credentials to prove it!
“and then it hit me…”
After spending years trying to develop just the right package, that would genuinely teach interns everything they needed to know to become a certified Yoga teacher, from the comfort of their own homes, the answer to my problems suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks…
Why not develop a package that combined the best of both worlds?…A course that would let you earn the Internationally-recognized Yoga instructor credentials you needed – from the comfort of your own home and would give you access to one-on-one instruction with a professional teacher trainer, when you needed it!
It was, at that very moment, that I started developing the Yoga Teacher Training “Camp-in-a-Box” for Certification Online.
“Unlimited, in-person support, was the answer!”
It was so simple; I wondered why no one else had thought of it before! By combining a comprehensive Yoga teacher training home study package, with unlimited telephone and e-mail support, I could finally give home-study students the kind of training they needed.
Materials, included within the original course, in 2002:
(Available for purchase now as “The Original Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box“)
Of course, in addition to unlimited phone and e-mail access, to our pool of highly trained professional instructors, you’ll also get our three comprehensive training guidebooks, which consist of a total of 1101 information-packed pages of instructional material.
You’ll get our highly-rated Yoga Teacher Study Guide, which will give you an overview of the program, with valuable teacher tips, useful Sanskrit terms, an ethics agreement, and an independent research section. Your Teacher Study Guide also contains useful information about Chakras, Mudras, and Bandhas.
On top of this, we will also include Two instructional DVD’s, designed to teach you all the positions, and techniques, that you need to know to teach Yoga at a professional level. Each one of the videos will walk you through exactly how to lead your classes – with expertise and confidence.
You will also receive a Business Secrets DVD to help you zip past the learning curve, and put your business on the fast track to success.
So – just how confident am I that the home-study package I have put together will provide you with all the training and support you need to become an internationally certified and recognized Yoga Instructor?
“I’m willing to stake my school’s reputation on your success!”
Upon completion of this course, you will receive a diploma as a Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT) and a letter of recommendation. Your Yoga Teacher diploma is the same as the certificate that our students receive when they complete our intensive on-site training camps, and does not state “home study, distance learning, or correspondence course” on it.
Of course, doing this could be seen as a big risk for me, because I am putting my school’s reputation on the line. I don’t see it that way at all… I am so absolutely positive that this program will give you everything you need to start, run, and grow a successful practice, that I am more than willing to take the risk!
Remember: Our Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box is a 240-hour course. Your Yoga teacher diploma will indicate that you have surpassed the International minimum standard of 200 hours.
Start Training Today — From The Comfort Of Your Own Home!
The typical tuition cost, for a traditional Level 1 Yoga instructor certification program, can start at over $3000. (That’s just for tuition… You would still need to buy books – not to mention the cost of driving, or flying, to a teacher training facility.) There would also be the additional cost for meals, hotel, time off work, child care, etc.
I think you’ll be very excited to learn that the Yoga Teacher Training-Camp-in-a-Box (including unlimited phone and e-mail support, training materials, and training DVD’s) is priced at only $497.
If you would rather pay in monthly installments, we can simply bill you in three easy payments! You will receive three different Yoga teacher training modules, with each installment.
NEW – Yoga Teacher Training-Camp-in-a-Box for Two! If you, and a partner, would like to train to become instructors, we will give you a $197 discount and send you Two training programs! (Of course, you will both be receiving your own diplomas!)
THREE Special Bonuses (Valued at $221.95):
“It’s yours to Keep, No Matter What You Decide!”
Bonus #1: “Business Starter Manual” (Value: $147)
If you order in the next seven days, we will also include — at no extra charge — our Business Starter Manual – “How to Grow Your Own Successful Yoga Business.” This comprehensive resource, valued at $147, contains all the vital information you need to start, run, and grow, your own profitable teaching business.
Most training camps will teach you what you need to know to become a certified Hatha Yoga instructor, but won’t say a word about how to operate your own studio. What they don’t want you to know is, that operating your own studio, is the most profitable way to teach.
Our Business Starter Manual – “How to Grow Your Own Successful Yoga Business,” will reveal all the “behind the scenes” secrets that will put your practice on the fast track to success.
Bonus #2: “Aura Wellness Center’s Guided Relaxation CD” (Value: $15.95)
This CD is for your personal use and makes a handy learning tool for teacher interns. When you first listen to this CD, you will feel very relaxed. This is the initial purpose, but since you will be teaching guided relaxation and meditation, as part of your classes, you can also use this CD to improve your cueing skills.
After regular practice with this CD, you will also develop your own cueing techniques, when guiding friends, family, and your students, through a relaxation sequence or meditation.
Bonus #3: “Yoga Marketing 101 on DVD” (Value: $59)
Order today and you will also receive a DVD that gives you enough marketing strategies to earn $50,000 – $100,000 per year. It’s unfortunate; many excellent teachers and masters don’t know how to market themselves. Instead of a happy and rewarding lifestyle, they scratch out an existence. You don’t have to!
This DVD is an hour full of “straight talk” that will teach you how to claim your market share of local students and avoid costly mistakes. Learn which methods have the best return on investment.
You will discover how to keep your teaching business going in a positive direction in any kind of economy. Combine this video with the “Yoga Business Starter Manual,” and you are on your way to a successful teaching career.
Also included in your Yoga teacher training materials will be, the best selling “Chakra Balancing Kit” by Anodea Judith. This complete Chakra Kit includes:
