I found that I was nervous at first about an online program, but realized quickly during my training course that there is so much self-study and comtemplation needed in Yoga Training. If you are rushed to read through material and not comprehending or assimilating it into your practice it won't benefit you or your future students. Then when you have questions or want to discuss ideas you can talk to a Yoga teacher or fellow students. If you are someone who has never really practiced Yoga the poses will be harder for you so taking regular Yoga classes is needed. If you are someone who has taken many classes and home classes it will be easier and you can always take one on classes for alignment which I know helped me. I took a few private classes to focus on breaking down poses to understand alignment and how to explain the pose. I also went to a meditation/breathing instruction seminar. I agree a home study course is absolutely effective for many people. The postures and learning to teach come from experience of practicing Yoga so that will come in time. I'm in new teacher mode right now and I feel that for me there is a learning curve finding our own voice and teaching style. The Aura Wellness Center program gave me great materials to build a solid foundation and the "teacher in me" has to now step out and through my experiences I know I will gain more skills and confidence.

Hey Kerry,

You hit the nail on the head. If I cram, I don't remember a thing. A 2-4 week yoga teacher training cram session wouldn't do me any good.
