Why Our Training
Choosing a Yoga Teacher Training is tough with online ads promising low costs and quick certification. Though useful during the pandemic, a study of 3000+ Studio owners concluded that 75% of owners wouldn't hire instructors with only online training, as auditions show these graduates lack skill and confidence. Many online Yoga Teacher Training programs focus on profit and don't align with the yoga community's values as they claim.

Here at Life Yoga Academy, we are a Yoga Studio
 as well as an Instructor development academy. We have worked with countless instructors and we know how to build successful instructors from the ground up. As instructors who have taken in-person Yoga Teacher Trainings and have also done our share of Online Trainings, we can attest that nothing beats the connection of live community and connection with in-person training. With our training you will receive:

Personal Connection

Mentorship

Community

Train with Authentic Instructors

Indepth Knowledge of Yoga's History

Skills to Effectively Plan & Sequence Classes
