A Self-Paced Yoga Teacher Training Program with Heart and Soul, providing a 200-hr Training format through recorded lessons, optional Zoom classes, weekly Mentor Teacher check-in, and Certification.
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, 2021.
We have over 20 years of experience and expertise in Training Yoga Teachers. Teaching Yogis to share Yoga is our specialty and lifelong dedication. We offer a structured curriculum, organized training manual, and a supportive environment for learning - even if you are new to Yoga. Our foundational course allows you to confidently self-pace your training, offering the option for real-time practice classes and weekly mentor check-ins with our trainers.
