“The teacher training course was challenging and Paul was accessible throughout. The specific and detailed feedback I received regarding the class I taught was especially useful.”
Yoga for Every Body
Completing the AURA yoga teacher training camp in a box was a major positive turning point in my life. AURA Yoga provided me with all the materials I needed to turn my passion for yoga into a means of qualifying to share this passion with others. It was more than just a course to me, everything I learnt was relevant and able to be applied to my daily life, so my period of study also became a spiritual journey. I encountered many personal difficulties throughout my time of study, however with the support of the caring and understanding faculty, I was able to get through my personal struggles and complete the course. AURA yoga is a compassionate training centre that practices the amazing yogic way that they teach, I have never felt so supported and understood in my entire experiences of education as I did with AURA and this is saying a lot considering we are on opposite sides of the world. Thanks to AURA Wellness Centre I am not only a qualified yoga teacher, I am a better person.
Anyway thank you so much for everything, please feel free also to let me know if you need anything as I would be happy to help, you have made a loyal friend in Australia. Thank you once again for everything
Love and peace always

Dear Paul and Marie,
Thank you so much!! I can’t believe it! I’m so excited to be on the road to teach my own class!
You helped me to change my life and my future.
It was really nice to work with Camp In Box!! I’d like to thank you for offering such a wonderful product!! Your material was great and Informative!!
Thank you so much!!
I have received the certificate of accreditation; it looks great, thanks a lot. Below is a reference of your course for other prospective students.
Having recently completed the Aura online teacher training course I can proudly recommend it to anyone who wants to work as a Yoga teacher or simply improve their own practice.
I first began teaching Yoga to friends who wanted to learn and before long I found myself giving paid classes in my local area without having any official accreditation and although my students were happy enough, for me it was always something I felt uncomfortable about. When I looked into doing a teacher training course I just didn´t find any suitable options. Doing it full time would have meant taking a whole month off work whilst part time would have taken a year to complete; furthermore I would have to wait six months for the next course to start.
Doing the Camp-in-a-Box online course really gives you the freedom to work and study in your own time. The materials are excellent and I am glad to have them for continued future reference. I live in Spain and everything arrived within 7 working days including my certification on completion of the course. Paul was excellent with answering any questions or problems I had, I don’t recall one occasion where my inquiry was not attended to the same day.
If you are a keen Yogi then I guarantee you will not regret doing this course. I am positive you will get as much out of it as I have.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Meditation Course for my personal well-being and for potentially teaching in the area that I work. The help and support that I received from the AURA was awesome, timely and matched the support of any accredited institution that I have taken correspondence courses from. I am anxious about getting enrolled in the YOGA training as well.”

“I’m very happy to be an Aura Yoga Teacher. Your course is deep and complete and helps you to know many aspects of yoga. Thanks!!
I could study and work at the same time and integrate my everyday life with yoga. I can say that my life is better with Yoga.
I’m going to follow another course at Aura, because I trust you and I appreciate your knowledge and humanity. Grazie davvero!
All the Best,
“Paul’s yoga teacher’s training course curriculum requires the close study of books by James Hewitt and Swami Vishnu-Devananda, which are considered classic English language yoga texts. Doing my practical on-site, I got to meet Paul and spent time with him over a couple of days. Paul is always willing to help and enjoys working with the global community he has developed. Paul.answers his e-mail promptly. Being an experienced practitioner coming in, I learned a lot on this course, and because of it I am more rounded in my yoga practice.
I recommend him and this course highly.”
I’d like to take this time to thank you sincerely for the opportunity to participate in your YTT. The 240 hour course was great , put together just wonderfully! this course led me down several paths! The studying and research really opened my mind and heart to knowledge I didn’t know existed, however it is something that I had longed for.
As I studied, all that I learned seemed to fill in the gaps of all I’d been searching for.
Again, thank you, your training was put together perfectly and just what I needed. I know the YTT will be a blessing to others as it has been for me.

I began my Yoga Teacher Training career with basically just desire, and did not know where to turn for direction. After researching what was available, I found the AURA Yoga Teacher Training Course to be the most comprehensive and affordable program available through home study. After receiving my Training Package, I quickly realized just how in-depth the course was (and how much I would have to study!). I began with the written test, followed by my essay and ending with the practical exam. During this time, I attended a Yoga class in a nearby community. I was startled to realize how much I already knew. I completed the program in just a little less than a year.
Presently, I am teaching Yoga classes at a health center in my community, and loving every minute of it! I have not had to do much marketing, word of mouth is working beautifully.
I cannot say enough regarding the AURA Yoga Teacher Training Program and for Paul. This course helps you create the confidence and knowledge base needed. Paul was available to me when I needed him, and was very compassionate and supportive. I would recommend this course to anyone who is seriously considering the career of Yoga teaching.

Thank you so much to the staff of the Aura Wellness Center.
After receiving the Camp-In-A-Box I was so excited to begin my studies! It contained so much information. The books themselves were outstanding, along with the DVD’s for marketing and opening a business to the instructional for mastering Asanas. I have no regrets about embarking on this course and feel the wealth of knowledge I have gained as a result is more than satisfactory.
The staff was always at the ready to answer any questions and offer any guidance. Thank you again, for the opportunity to complete your course and market myself as a certified Yoga instructor!!
Certified Yoga Instructor
I am thrilled to receive my yoga certification. The course was comprehensive and I learned so much. The variety of requirements helped me in so many ways. The readings were extremely helpful especially in learning the history of yoga. The anatomy video was good in ways that only a video can be. Seeing the students and how their particular bodies worked regarding bone structure etc. clarified many things for me. I enjoyed recording the video of a class, when viewing it I saw ways I might improve my own presentation.
Thank you for the support, the materials and the opportunity to become a certified yoga instructor I look forward to many harmonious classes.

Dear Fellow souls,
I am happy to announce that I’m now a certificated Yoga Teacher. I really appreciate working with Aura Wellness Center, and Paul is a wonderful person always ready to help and guide with every question or doubt.
For me Yoga has been a great tool and lifestyle to balance and harmonies my work for many years in the fitness and health industry. I use Yoga to give me inner peace, joy, energy, and it’s a wonderful way of learning to respect and love ourselves in all existing life.
We need to find and discover the energy inside ourselves, and regularly practice of Yoga is a great method for today’s stressed society. We could all benefit tremendously from learning how to relax, how to breathe better. It will open up our eyes to our own spirituality and the higher questions about ourselves and life.
I feel proud and very privileged of what I can give and create with others; to share what I have learned and experienced already is for me a big personal gift and treasure. We all have hidden capacities just waiting to come out, and I hope that you will find as much joy and happiness as me, following the path of self-discovery, understanding and enlightenment.
I just got my Aura Yoga teaching certificate and I am truly happy. In the past years, I have had a strong motivation to share my passion for yoga with others. Until I found out about your program, however, it had been difficult to find a teacher training course who could fit my schedule, since I divide my time between Europe and the States. Your camp-in-a-box was very convenient for me, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Apart from the textbooks, I particularly liked the anatomy and the beginner lesson plan DVDs, which are very thorough and informative. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity.
All the best,

In Emmanuel’s Book compiled by Pat Rodegast and Judith Stanton are these beautiful words:
“The concept of teacher as student
and student as teacher
is not new.
It has been spoken of by the wise souls
of every generation.
There is much learning
to be derived from the teaching process.
But the teacher must remain the student
if the teacher is to grow.”
It is because I believe these words so completely that I signed up for Paul’s program, and it was wisdom that led me to this choice. Paul manages to combine professionalism with compassion, and I always felt supported and reassured by him throughout this challenging process. His dedication to the art and science of yoga is profound. He is running a business, yes, but it feels more like a service he offers to his community and to the world at large because he has such a commitment to his vocation. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who feels the calling to become a Certified Yoga Teacher.
Thank you, Paul and Marie for all you are and all you do.
Proud Alumna of the Aura Wellness Center
I just wanted to tell you how highly I esteem this curriculum. I took yoga teacher training more than 20 years ago, and had long desired a way to enhance my meditation instruction skills.
You put it all together in this class.
Thank you, Paul
I have just passed my Yoga teacher training with Aura Yoga school, “Camp in a box.”
At first, I was wary, there are so many scams and cons on the inter net, you have to be, but after examining the Aura web site carefully, I sent off for my materials. They did not disappoint.
I found the syllabus challenging but do-able. You have to know your stuff to pass the written exam and be competent at yoga practice to pass the practical. But the materials are comprehensive and Paul is always there, at the end of an email (he is very prompt at replying) and you have your monthly newsletters to keep you informed.
I had a very uplifting and positive experience dealing with the AURA SCHOOL and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to pursue their yoga practice with a view to teaching. It is un-pressured yet thorough and it allowed me to gain a qualification in yoga whilst fulfilling my commitments here, in the U.K.
Dear Paul Jerard,
I have received the certification for completing the course. I want to thank you for allowing me to do this course. I had a lot fun with it and I am really looking forward to beginning my experience asa teacher. I am also interested in any other trainings that you offer. I enjoyed this course so much, I would definitely consider doing other courses you have available to further my education as a Yoga instructor.
Thank you for recommending the B.K.S Iyengar Book. I actually have it and several other books on B.K.S. Iyengar. I have tried several methods of Yoga and found that Iyengar is by far my favorite.
Again, thank you for allowing me to earn my certification through your at home training course. I will definitely suggest it to anyone who is looking to become a teacher.
Certified Yoga Teacher
I have received my prenatal/postnatal yoga teaching certificate and I could not be more thrilled. At the age of 45, I have successfully managed to redirect my life into the direction that I have been looking for all my life. I LOVE yoga and teaching it to others, I believe, has always been my destiny.
Your online program made all of this possible, by allowing me to continue with my normal day-to-day life while making the transition to my life’s dream!
I thank you for your support and for being available at any time when I needed a nudge in the right direction. I would recommend your program (and you!) to anyone!
I hope you are doing great! I am doing very good.
I am sending you my testimony to share with the world. I hope my testimony can stimulate others like me. I am the founder and owner of AcuaYogI concept and discipline in Puerto Rico. I was a swimmer since 5 years old and participated in local and national competitions, practiced synchronized swimming during her teens. I Have been involved in providing aquatic services to a variety of populations, especially in adaptive aquatics since 1976. In 1979-81 trained and coached the major swimming team in Puerto Rico (Caparra Country Club). Continued to teach at her private pool during college years.
I have been involved with different non profit cause of handicapped children and the foundation of ADHD Chapter in my country since 1991. Establishing and founding of SER de Puerto Rico, a local handicap children’s school .I work with infants through teens with a variety of conditions such as cerebral palsy. Spina bifida, rheumatoid arthritis, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, hypotonic, Alzheimer, fibromyalgia, chronic arthritis and pain, autism, ADHD, developmental delays and others, As a certified Yoga teacher from Aura School in Rhode Island, certified Watsu facilitator from School of Watsu and Massage at Hot Harbin, California. The combination to offer great experiences to special population gives great satisfaction and gratification. The yoga has helped many people to restore movement inside of the water and be able to transfer that to land. My yoga training has improved my water practice rehabilitating people with chronic conditions in the water. I have designed my own program and has helped many lives.
I offer AcuaYogi services to children and adults as well. I works with small group individual program and does house calls, facilitating people’s access to the discipline, no matter their physical condition. My mission is a dynamic exchange adventure between AcuaYogi facilitator and children inside and outside of the water, focusing on aqua-abilities, leading the children and adult to explore their full inner potential, without limits. I believe in stressing self confidence and the joy of movement in a safe non competitive and success oriented environment.
I have been associated with medical professionals in the area of neurology, physiatrist, OBG, physical therapist and orthopedics in order to follow up on success of recuperation.
AcuaYogi has made huge difference in the lives of many children and adults and their families with her philosophy of empowerment, which helps children and adults believe in themselves and auto healing, finding the real inner strength and strong will. As spirits are encouraged and they build inner confidence they can meet new challenges both in and out of the water. Total transformation of the person is the result of the discipline where people discover their abilities in the water opening a whole new perspective of their chronic illness which do not identify their personality or stops them to have the most of their lives.
I do hanks every day for the Aura experience and Paul’s support during the process. I own a beautiful job filled with happiness and gratefulness. At the end of the day that is my mission in life.
I hope my testimony stimulate others,

I’m so happy I joined your YTT Camp-in-a-Box. You know very well about my needs and expectations about being a good Yoga teacher. The YTT Camp in a Box not only led me to become a better Yoga teacher (I’m already one and took a Yoga teacher training course before), but this program also improved my personality side, my ability to be sharp, and perceive the needs of my students.
Also, this course gave me the knowledge and possibilities on how my business will grow in the future…all this is proof that a distance learning is possible and could be as strong as (or probably stronger than?) onsite Yoga training.
Since it stimulated me to learn about the whole materials, if not so I could never be able to do the exams…thanks for your assisting and for being a ‘service oriented’ man. I wish that I will be like that too.”
I received my kit today and it was worth the wait!! It looks great. I am currently overwhelmed with classes right now but will get to this soon. Thanks again … looking forward to studying this packet.”
Thanks so much for the opportunity to train with your distance program. For a busy home schooling mom, doula, and yoga teacher, your program was a perfect fit for me and my family. I would recommend your program to anyone interested in the self-study of yoga. The material was thorough and complete and very though provoking. I enjoyed studying and looked forward to my study time. Thanks again for offering this wonderful program and I wish you many future successes with you business.”

Certified Yoga Teacher
Your yoga certification course has been outstanding!! It has greatly expanded my knowledge of yoga and has provided me with extremely useful information for teaching yoga classes and the business of starting a yoga studio. The course materials, including your materials on the business of yoga, are excellent. I know that this training will open new doors of opportunity for yoga teaching and I am truly grateful to have been able to take this course!!”
I just wanted to drop a line and let you know how my teacher training is going. I ended up running 2 Saturday morning classes because my first planned class filled within a week through word of mouth and no advertising. I had 2 classes going. I’m currently half way through a second 6-week session. Again I have 2 Saturday morning classes.
I have had 3 other offers to teach yoga classes at various places when I wasn’t even seeking it. I declined them.
I’m also teaching a mommy and me yoga class that is going very well. I originally didn’t want to do it but something drew me there.
I’ve also been studying Mukunda Stiles Structural Yoga Therapy – just from his books. That probably doesn’t surprise you, but thought I’d tell you anyway. I’m also working on A Physiological Handbook for Teachers of Yogasanas. Actually I’ve read and studied quite a few books since Christmas including the yoga mudra book you recommended. I use that in my classes, with my patients, and with my kids.
I hope all is well with you and Marie and the business.”
“I practiced Yoga for 12 years and had no clue about business. I learned things about Yoga and business I never knew and have become a teacher full-time.”
“Wanting to do what you like for a living didn’t seem practical until I put your YTT-Camp-in-a-box into action. Thanks to your help, I’m on my way to self-employment. I now have 5 accounts with companies and gyms.”
I wanted to thank you for my beautiful diploma and lovely letter of recommendation as well as the tips. I do appreciate how quickly you sent me my results and certificate. Also, thanks for always getting back to me so quickly with answers to my questions.
Your program was a wonderful experience for me. Having two small children to look after, your Camp-in-the-Box was perfect for me because I could set my own hours for studying. I was also free to work at my own pace. The materials are wonderful and the online and telephone instruction I received was extremely helpful. I would strongly recommend this program to anyone who seriously wants to become a yoga teacher!
On another note, I already have a few solid leads so I hope to be teaching very soon. I’ll let you know when I’m officially hired. My plan is to start subbing as much as possible to gain valuable experience. Hopefully, the subbing will eventually lead to some regular classes.
Thanks again, Paul! It has been a real pleasure!”
All the best,
“Wow, talk about quick service and great reference material. I can’t believe how service oriented you people really are. Thank You so much.”
“Good Day, Paul
I thought I should let you know that I have been reading, studying, and practicing Yoga, and really appreciate all the information you sent. It is all so very interesting and I am so grateful to have had the chance to be a part of AURA Yoga.

“I want to take this time to say “thank you”. All I have learned, so far, really has opened my eyes and has made a REALLY big change in my life. If your at home learning program had not been available I may not have looked into Yoga any further.”
“First I want to say how much I enjoyed your marketing/biz booklet. It was informative, personal, and realistic. I wish I had this book before I started my own businesses three years ago!”
