How Can I Earn Money With an Online Yoga Certification?

How Can I Earn Money with an Online Yoga Certification?


I spoke with a woman named Anissa today.  Anissa wants to enroll in our 200 Hour Online Yoga Teacher Training but she had a lot of questions about whether or not she will be able to support herself as a Certified Yoga Instructor with an Online Yoga Certification.  Anissa is a massage therapist who has been practicing yoga for years. She would like to offer yoga classes in connection with her massage therapy practice.  Working full-time with a family, she does not have the availability to attend a local 200 hour yoga teacher training in person.  She is looking for an online program but has concerns about earning a living as a Certified Yoga Instructor with an Online Yoga Certification.

...you can do the same thing with an Online 200 Hour Yoga Certification that you can do with a 200 Hour Yoga Certification earned at a training you attend in person

I reassured Anissa that you can do the same thing with an Online 200 Hour Yoga Certification that you can do with a 200 Hour Yoga Certification earned at a training you attend in person.  Both trainings issue the same 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate of Completion.  Ours looks like this:

This 200 Hour Certificate will make you eligible to teach yoga anywhere.  All you need to teach yoga is a 200 Hour Certification.  Registration with directories is optional, but the 200 hour certification is mandatory.
