Everyone I am based in the UK and have been practicing yoga for several years now and would like to study to be a teacher but like a lot of people don't have the money to study on an intensive course at the moment. I have been looking at various home study courses both in the UK and abroad and I am very interested in the correspondence courses offered by Paul.

I am impressed but the amount of quality material the included in the course as most courses seem to provide you only with photocopied booklets. However as I am in the UK I am not sure if this course would be recognised by the Independent Yoga Network here although this is the body which normally recognises distance learning courses.

I'd be grateful if anyone could advise me if it is possible to get insurance to teach here in the UK after doing this course and if it is recognised by the Independent Yoga Network?

Many thanks,

Yoga Teacher Training By Distance Learning

The discipline of yoga and its practitioners have evolved greatly over the years. To meet these changes, institutions have changed the way they assist students become future yoga teachers. More students are selecting distant learning online to fulfill their education needs because it won't interfere with their busy lifestyles, and, it accommodates students who don't live near a yoga training institution.

As a yoga teacher you will have the skills to help others experience the benefits yoga has on our busy modern lifestyles. You will have the knowledge to help students realize that yoga is an ever evolving methodology that changes as they the practitioner evolves and transforms. As a newly certified yoga teacher you will be able to help the discipline of yoga evolve based on the quality of your training and your understanding of its methodology.

A distance learning course can earn you the continuing education units you need for your yoga teacher certification. Plus, you will benefit from the savings in money that comes with an online education. Online students save thousands of dollars compared to students at a traditional school. They don't have to pay hidden costs, or, worry about parking fees, traveling, room and board, or application and enrollment fees.

Aura Wellness Center's online yoga instructor courses are helping to advance the yoga community by providing a positive and convenient way for students and experienced teachers to learn from home. Students looking for a distant learning course in yoga teacher certification should try their Camp-in-a-Box. It is a convenient well organized distant learning course.

Your distance learning yoga teacher certification course includes books, kits, DVD/CD sets, ebooks, email, phone support, and exams to test your knowledge. At the completion of the course you will receive a diploma. Another advantage of the online training course is your ability to communicate with others interested in yoga. These forums and their Facebook page provide students the opportunity to receive advice from graduates and interns, or, exchange ideas with other students located around the world.

Years ago BWY refused to register me because I'm not a Britisher. They just ignored me, so I remained independent. It was the best thing that ever happened to me as I learned to think for myself. If you are a UK teacher and you really want to be registered there is also a third teacher registry in the UK called Yoga Alliance UK. You have choices these days and you could also go with IYF as a 4th option.

The practice of yoga has changed in response to the current lifestyle changes of its practitioners. People have limited time to spend learning a new career. A distance learning course in teacher certification is taken at your convenience when you are not rushed. It will give you the same knowledge of asanas, mental training, and breath control techniques as the traditionally trained student.

If you decide to take an in person training, getting certified as a yoga instructor can take a significant amount of time and money. If you're like the average person who has an interest in pursuing this career but also has a job and financial obligations, time and money can be a serious obstacle. This is when it is especially important to consider the benefits of taking an online certification course. Taking this route to becoming an instructor can eliminate some of the hurdles that come along with enrolling in a traditional yoga instructor certification class.

One obvious benefit to choosing the online route is time. Students can set their own hours and study at their own pace. This means that a person who has a job while taking the course can schedule their study time around their work hours. There is no need to worry about being in class at a time that is inconvenient to you.

Most online certification courses are relatively inexpensive compared to those that are taken at a facility. This is a huge advantage for individuals who are working with a limited budget. Students can get certified as an instructor without stressing over breaking the bank or foregoing other financial obligations.

Many internet based programs have a well-rounded support system. Students can often access unlimited resources to help them complete their certification. This includes phone support, email and instructor tips. A lot of programs also provide students with a tutor to help with assignments and any other questions they may have. Tutors are usually professionals who are working as instructors in the yoga industry.

Taking an online yoga certification course is an excellent alternative to enrolling in one that is based offline. It can help individuals combat time and money issues without compromising the quality of their training. If you have a dream of becoming a yoga instructor, web-based programs have made it that much easier to obtain your dreams.
