Hi Elvira,

That was really nice of you to say. What Steph said is true. It helps you, but it helps us stay on our toes too. Online yoga certification is the best financial choice. When you first decide that your interest in yoga goes beyond the benefits of relaxing through class searching for further education may seem extremely daunting. There are so many options that you may have a tough time making up your mind. You could fly away to a retreat center in the mountains or spend time putting in many hours of class time in a big city. One option that is becoming a more affordable option is online yoga certification.

Let's face it - gas is expensive. In today's economy knowledge is power, but you just can't afford to take off work to pursue the dream you have of aiding people to become more healthy, flexible and relaxed with themselves and their lives through yoga. Becoming a certified yoga teacher lends credibility to your teaching abilities and shows your dedication to the art. Yoga certification puts a stamp of approval on your skills - what a great advertisement for you to use in order to attract a clientele base!

Online programs vary from one another but most have some things in common.

Flexibility: the Internet allows you to work the classes into your schedule. This leaves time for school, work and family life to all co-exist.

No relocation: being able to stay where you are and not move away to a remote location means you don't have to lose your income or home, relocate the family, etc.

Certified yoga instructors can be employed at hospitals, rehabilitation centers, spas, fitness centers, community centers and more. Just imagine the possibilities a certification could provide for you.

One of those is the opportunity to be your own boss. You can work as a private yoga teacher (teaching private lessons) and set your own hours with students in their own homes or in your office space. This enables them to learn yoga techniques where they are most comfortable: in private. What better way to share the strength and flexibility of yoga than to be an example of those essential principles of the art? Sharing yoga by becoming a certified yoga instructor is affordable, flexible and do-able in an online format and is available to you right now, today.

Don't be surprised if you get more information in your course than you expected.

Best of luck and keep in touch.
