Online Courses

The following courses are available online in both live and pre-recorded formats. All of these courses are open to the public and may be completed prior to the residential training as desired.

Students wishing to complete their Yoga Alliance 200 hour designation must be live for at least 50% of the total online hours. However, we are committed to helping sincere students and will work with you if this requirement becomes a barrier to completion.
