affordable 200 hour hatha yoga teacher trainingBy Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500

Where can you find affordable, yet comprehensive training, to become a Yoga teacher? Are you are looking for a complete course, which covers much more than a few dozen postures? Do you seek to learn about kriyas, doshas, chakras, mudras, mantras, contraindications, bandhas, and more?

The latest method in advanced Yoga training is online. It helps if an intern or instructor has study materials to work with at home, but it is nice to have access to a teacher community. This sense of community has been part of Yoga training since the beginning.

An online community and network of Yoga teachers, which can be found in a forum, will help interns find answers to puzzling questions. At the same time, access to videos and Pod casts, gives you coaching any time of the day or night.

For centuries, discoveries about Yogic methods and philosophy were recorded in books. This is the traditional way many of us learned, at home, long before Video Cassette Recorders (VCR) were invented. We did not have the Internet, cable television, DVDs, CDs, or any of the latest gadgets available.

The traditional home study method, based on books, worked, but it was missing that sense of community and contact with your teacher, tutor, or mentor. You could always pick up the phone, and make a call, but maybe you live in a different time zone.

Email access has changed everything. With Email, you do not have to worry about disturbing anyone. Long distance telephone plans are much less expensive than they used to be. With improved communication, and the power of the web, Yoga distance learning is easier, and more affordable, than any other method.
