Rolling Admissions. Pace Yourself. Yoga Training with Heart and Soul. Are you unable to attend the majority of our sessions in real-time? Do you live in an area without reliable internet access to participate in live meetings? Too big of a time zone difference? This is your answer!
Cloud Nine Yoga is a 200/300 Yoga Alliance Registered School since 2002. We have been training yoga teachers and offering certification courses since 1999.
This course is made possible due to a special provision from Yoga Alliance that allows Registered Yoga Schools to provide training entirely online and through distance learning. This provision runs until December 31, 2020.
Our school prides itself in being a community-based, non-dogmatic Yoga Education entity with a history of facilitating the awakening of many hearts and teaching freedom of mind and body. Each training group works together to promote and inspire growth, healing and transformation for each individual participant. Our teachers consistently enjoy giving encouraging, one-on-one consultations during the course of our program to keep each person evolving toward the best they can be. Our playfulness, gentle guidance and spiritually-focused approach provide a welcome and loving atmosphere for all ages and levels of students.
Trainers are available for mentoring by phone or ZOOM during your enrollment.

Erika lives by trusting that miracles are waiting around every corner.

She does this through affirmation, reflection, humor, music, poetry, and prayers. Erika inspires people to find their own source of wholeness by asking the deeper questions that bring personal insight, community awareness, and connection with the Great Spirit.
