10 Best Online Yoga Teacher Trainings

Becoming a yoga teacher has never been more accessible than it is now. One of the best things to come out of this year is that yoga teacher training has made its way online!

If time, travel, and money have ever got in the way of your dream to become a yoga teacher, now is the time to snap up an online course

It's very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better
The benefits of online yoga teacher training
There are so many wonderful benefits to becoming a yoga instructor online! Here are just a few.
You'll meet people
When taking a yoga teacher training course online, you'll meet people from all over the world that you might otherwise never have met! This is, without a doubt, one of the very best things about taking an online course.

You'll meet new friends, be introduced to a large group of people who are there to support you on your journey during and beyond yoga teacher training, and who knows, maybe one day you'll lead yoga retreats together!

You can learn from a variety of instructors

Some of the most experienced yoga educators can now be brought directly into your living room, thanks to online yoga teacher training. Forget having to travel for 15 hours, all you have to do is open your laptop and connect to the internet!
It's affordable
You'll be getting exactly the same certification as an in-person training for a fraction of the price. If becoming a yoga teacher has always felt like it's out of your budget, now is the time to do it!
It's practical
Not all of us can take 3 months off to fly to an exotic beach and become a yoga teacher. We have commitments, we have children, we have jobs...let's face it, our schedules are busy!

Taking a yoga teacher training online makes the entire process incredibly accessible to everybody. If you choose an online school with flexible study dates, you'll be able to fit it in even more easily around your other commitments

The downsides of online yoga teacher training
Despite the many benefits of taking an online yoga teacher training course, there are, of course, a few downsides. It's completely dependent on you, your lifestyle, and your personal preference as to whether online or in-person training suits you more
Particular with flexible learning, there's a huge amount of commitment required and nobody chasing you up to 'get to work'. You'll have to set aside time every day/week to focus on your yoga teacher training and make sure that you don't keep putting it off!
Real-life exposure
The all-encompassing experience of an in-person yoga teacher training is special and can't quite be matched by an online course. However, the teacher training schools in this article have done their absolute best to match the personalized experience of an immersive course.

Each training listed here is registered as a Yoga Alliance online teacher training - so you can be sure that you are receiving top-quality education no matter which school you choose to study with

Hands-on practice
You won't necessarily get as much hands-on experience to give assists and check alignment as you would at an in-person training, but this also depends on you. Ask friends and family members to be your students so that you can practice the assists that you're learning online
Undeniably, there are more distractions at home than there are from inside the walls (or under the roof!) of a yoga school. It's a good idea to use a calendar or diary to 'book' yourself time slots to spend on your online training. This way you have a start and finish, and therefore know that you'll be able to get back to your other tasks soon enough!
To get the most out of teacher training for yoga online, consider making sure that they offer the following:

  • Textbooks

  • Live calls

  • One-to-one time

  • A lead teacher that you can contact for help and personal advice

  • Registered as a Yoga Alliance online teacher training

  • Testimonials
