About Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga-teacher-training.org is an extension of the Yoga teacher training intensive programs, which take place at Aura Wellness Center in Attleboro, Massachusetts. After teaching classes for over 5,000 hours, Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, began training teachers in 1995.
These Yoga Training Intensives  Yoga training sessions, for teachers, were held across Southeastern New England. We received requests from students, studios, and ashrams, worldwide, to organize and develop intensives. Instead of traveling around the world, we created distance learning programs for Yoga instructors.

As a result, Dr. Paul Jerard and the staff, at Aura Wellness Center, developed the first of many different correspondence courses, for the student who wanted to become a Yoga teacher, and experienced teachers who wanted continuing or specialized education areas.

With these efforts, we have continued to develop and improve the courses you see today at: https://www.aurawellnesscenter.com/store/Teacher-Courses/

Each year, we review every course and improve on the previous years’ model. Our graduates provide us with priceless feedback, and we take each suggestion into consideration.

About Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500

Welcome! I am Paul Jerard, the Director of Yoga Teacher Training, at Aura Wellness Center, in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Since 1987, I have been teaching classes professionally, in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Over the years, it has been my privilege to train hundreds of enthusiasts to become internationally certified Yoga teachers and instructors.

Due to the repeated success of our Yoga teacher training graduates, Aura Wellness Center has developed a Yoga certification program, which teaches you everything you need to know about how to safely instruct classes, constantly improve your skills, and run a successful teaching practice. Additionally, you can learn everything you need to become a Yoga teacher from home and at your own pace.

It is called the “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box” for home study teacher certification. With the praise we received for developing the original course, Aura Wellness Center has been inspired to create a full collection of affordable home study courses for popular and important instructor specialist courses, such as Restorative, Power, Kids, Chair, Prenatal and Postnatal, 500-Hour Yoga Instructor Training, Vinyasa, Meditation, Yogic Anatomy, and more.

Equally important, Aura Wellness Center has developed complete courses and tools to help instructors run successful teaching businesses. After all, it is one thing to devote yourself to doing what you love; but it is quite another to be able to support yourself comfortably, and securely, while doing it. You will not learn these skills at a typical retreat or Yoga teacher training intensive.

Whether you are an experienced teacher, needing to re-certify, or a student who is looking to become a Yoga instructor – you have come to the right place. Our no-cost teacher community will help you find what you are looking for.

Please feel free to browse our site, use our resources, improve your teaching skills, and join our community, to find out for yourself about the advantages and benefits of home study Yoga teacher training, while you discover and share with other instructors.

Namaste,
Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500
