just a few of our recent students have to say.
"As a yoga practitioner, I became interested in teaching yoga. As I researched
many yoga websites and yoga teaching programs, I discovered the Yoga
Education Institute and registered for the online program. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed the program. It has enhanced my appreciation for yoga and my yoga practice. One of my favorite parts of the program is the yoga business success. It condenses cutting edge business practices into an easy to read and understand business program that will inspire you to start your own yoga business. Thanks to Nancy Wile and the Yoga Education Institute, I have become a more enlightened yogi, teacher, and person. Namaste." -- Tracy Rosenfeld
"The teacher's training course from Yoga Education Institute is detailed but very well organized and user friendly. I am a regular yoga practitioner and have been exposed to many writings on the subject, and I regard the study materials here to be impressive in both depth and style. It helps not only expand knowledge of the tradition, but also provides useful insights into the practical aspects of the practice. The course give you the flexibility to learn at your own pace and time, but with the constant guidance and support of Nancy, who is a very responsive and encouraging teacher. Here assessment of my assignments were so comprehensive with such valuable pointers and advice that it has helped me build not just confidence as a teacher but also improve my own yoga practice. Some yoga teachers are very spiritual and others more physical. Nancy's course combines both these attributes perfectly to fit into a true modern day yoga guide." - Smeeta Dutta
"The Yoga Education Institute provides a great opportunity for anyone to gain knowledge about Yoga at their own pace, and in the comfort of their own home. Nancy always sent me prompt feedback on any questions and concerns. She always has a positive way of encouraging students and correcting mistakes in a positive manner as well. I would recommend this program to everyone. The Yoga Education Institute will provide you with the knowledge to find your true self." -- Cynthia Lawson
What about the style of yoga we train you to teach?
The Yoga Education Institute trains yoga instructors in Hatha Yoga.
Hatha yoga is the science of physical and mental self-control through the practice of physical postures, breathing exercises and meditation. This is the most common practice of yoga and has become a mainstream form of exercise in modern industrialized societies.
Within general hatha yoga there exists a number of variations that form their own distinct style, including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Heated, Anusara, Vinyasa, Restorative, and many more. This program begins your training in general hatha yoga with an emphasis on developing an individualized approach to your teaching or your practice.
In this teacher training program, you will learn how to make your yoga classes accessible to a wide variety of individuals who may have no prior experience with yoga and who may feel nervous about what is involved. We will outline for you exactly how to focus on the specific physical and mental benefits of yoga, while providing a safe and supportive environment in which your students feel comfortable trying new things.
