Namaskar!

It's true that online training is self paced, but let's be honest - really being a yoga teacher is motivating yourself to read, do homework, and take courses or classes for life. If you're not continually educating yourself, your students are getting ripped off. If Marie is overwhelmed after one week she will be unhappy for nine more weeks. Then the reality of studying yoga for life sets in.

I don't know whose program she is in, but most don't run for a 10 week stretch going full bore for 6 days a week. It sounds like an ashram. I'd love it, but most people would feel like Marie does.

At Aura their in person 200 hour yoga teacher training is 9 months long, but it meets every other weekend and they skip around every holiday and snow storm. That gives you loads of time to have your homework and reading done. If there is a lot of snow, the Aura intensive may go longer than 9 months because of make up classes.

There is no yoga certification without reading, homework, and classes. If anybody knows of one, let us know.

Shanti,

Priyah
