This course is for you if you can answer yes to these questions:

You want to deepen your knowledge of yoga

You value your time and want to be able to learn at your own pace

You want to invest in yourself and make a positive change in your life

You want to live a life of freedom where you can create your own schedule and be your own boss

You’re committed to training and certifying, and want to graduate (even if it takes up to a year)

You want to gain expertise, build confidence, and go out there and teach (or become a better and more educated student)

When does the training begin?
The course begins as soon as you're ready. The entire program is done online and at your own pace. We recommend completing in 3-6 months if you're able, but you have one full year to complete the course.
Is it all online?
Yes, all course content is online and presented through pre-recorded material along with live group video chat discussions.
Is this teaching certification Yoga Alliance approved?
Yes, the YogaDownload 200 hour Online Yoga Teacher Training program is certified by Yoga Alliance (an international non-profit group who sets industry standards for yoga teacher trainings). This means that once you graduate you'll be able to register with Yoga Alliance and use the title "RYT 200" after your name (e.g. "Jane Brown, RYT 200"). It's similar to adding letters to your name from university or other higher education certifications.
Is this appropriate for beginners, or do I need to be a certain level?
While you don't need any prior certifications or specific experience, you will get the most out of this course if you have previously practiced yoga (any type or level) for at least 6 months before starting. This is a foundational 200 hour program for beginner through advanced yogis who aspire to change their lives, grow personally, develop their practice, and/or become a registered yoga teacher.
How many hours do I have to put in every week?
This will depend... Our 200 hour Online Teacher Training program is self-paced and extremely flexible. You can choose to put in as much or as little time as your schedule allows. We recommend completing within 3-6 months (10-15 training hours per week), but you have a full calendar year to complete the course which would equate to just 4 hours per week.
How long will I have access to the course?
You have one full year to complete the course, but you will have access to all course content including videos, PDFs and all materials for life! This also includes a LIFETIME membership to YogaDownload - over 2,600 online yoga, meditation and fitness classes accessible on our site and apps.
What styles of yoga will I learn?
Upon completion of the course you will be certified to teach hatha and vinyasa yoga. You will also learn about Yin Yoga during this course, but will need a separate certification to be able to teach this style of yoga (our YogaDownload Yin Yoga certification course is coming soon!).
What if I don't want to teach yoga but simply would like to deepen my practice?
This course is absolutely perfect if you wish to deepen your own practice but don't actually intend to teach, and in fact, over HALF our students take the course for this reason. If you do not intend to teach, you will not be required to complete activities where you practice teaching sessions or any other activities that go along with learning to teach a class. There will be a short form you fill out at the beginning of the course indicating you do not wish to teach. Please note that skipping those activities will mean you will receive a Certificate of Completion and NOT a teaching certificate.
Do I get personal feedback from my teachers?
Yes, and plenty of it! You will be supported throughout your journey and will get personal feedback plus have questions answered by your four teachers as well as your esteemed mentors. There will also be weekly live sessions where you can interact with the instructors and other students.
What if I'm not satisfied with the training?
While we strongly believe you will be extremely happy with all aspects of this training, if for any reason you are unsatisfied or feel it's not right for you, we will provide a full refund if you cancel within 14 days of your initial purchase - no hard feelings and no questions asked. So what we're saying is.... you have absolutely nothing to lose!

The teacher training with yoga download has been an incredible experience.

It gives me the luxury of training and learning at home and during work breaks on my own time and at my own pace. I also love all of the in-depth instruction, pacing and style of the courses. I highly suggest this program to anyone looking for flexibility and outstanding instruction from a yoga teacher training!

- Alyssa T.

I researched countless 200-hour trainings in search of one that was affordable, convenient, and offered a comprehensive and engaging curriculum.

What set Yoga Download apart from the rest was its innovative use of multimedia channels to provide knowledge and support remotely without compromising the integrity of the mentor/student relationship that forms during in-person trainings.

- Kayla M.

I am half way through the first Anatomy module and I am seriously having my mind blown.

The detail and depth of information I am learning is phenomenal. The content is delivered very clearly and easy to follow through videos and written slides. If you are already a yoga teacher looking to be reinspired or this is your first time training, I can’t actually express enough at how high the standard is that you will be learning.

- Colleen S.

I love the online training so far.

I feel more and more confident in my ability to teach as I progress through each module and love that I can take it at my own pace to allow a healthier integration of the information + listen to each lecture as often as I’d like to build clarification and understanding. Honestly can’t imagine a better introduction to a 200-hour.

- Catrina P.

The Yoga Download Online Teacher Training is fantastic!

I am about half way through and have learned much more than I ever anticipated. Each module has been informative, engaging, detailed and very worth my time. The assignments truly assess learning and the mentors have been phenomenal in providing essential feedback, support and suggestions for improvement.
