Why We're Different

We're not like other online yoga schools. Here's why.

  • Designed for Online. Unlike most yoga teacher training courses, our program was designed to be online, and maximizes the potential of the online experience. You can take advantage of the benefits of online learning (working at your own pace, fitting the training into your life), while staying connected, engaged, and supported.

  • Clearly structured. Created by a professional instructional designer with a Masters in Online Education, we have invested in ensuring that our students get the best possible learning experience.

  • Fun and engaging. We believe that learning is better when you're having a good time. While our online training is chock full of information, it's also offered in yummy, bite-sized chunks to maximize your experience.

  • High contact. We love connecting with our students! And - more importantly - we recognize the importance of personalized feedback to your learning. In this program, we support you every step of the way and create powerful opportunities for personalized feedback and support.

  • World-class faculty. Our core faculty - Rachel, David, Fiji, and Tracey - each bring their personal expertise directly to you. Whether you're learning meditation from David, anatomy from Rachel, philosophy from Tracey, or the chakras from Fiji, you'll learn from the best.

  • Stay connected. Our cohort experience means that you will take this journey with peers from around the world.

Student Testimonials

"I am very happy that I chose to take the YTT with the DYWM team. It is exactly what I was expecting and even more. The curriculum is comprehensive yet easy to understood and paced in a way that allows you to follow, irrespectively of your previous experience. The online lectures are easy to follow even for somebody like me who is not a native English speaker. The knowledge and the experience of the instructors is evident but what gained my appreciation even more is how approachable they are every time that you may need them."

As a corporate executive, there would be no other way for me to pursue a deeper connection with my yoga practice than online. I anticipated that I would have to proceed at a rather jagged pace and that has proven to be the case. This allows me to fit in the training in accord with my very demanding schedule, even on vacation. DYWM YTT is of the highest caliber of educational programming and all of the presenters are superior instructors. It occurs to me that this is the very definition of yin/yang: the ancient art of yoga being offered using the most modern technology. The Vedas would be proud and amazed!

It was everything I hoped for and more. The support was incredible and the online resources outstanding. It was fun, informative and transformative and I was able to do this from the comfort and convenience of my study in England. Thank you for making this a possibility!

After each course, I can't get to the next one fast enough! Each lesson features the different teaching styles of the different instructors and the very unique and dynamic ways they connect with us through videos and e-communications. I am so certain I am in a learning community that wants me to practice yoga in the most intelligent way possible; and that I am in a learning community that is going to make sure I teach yoga in the most intelligent way possible. The teachers and the teachings always feels super close and I always feel super connected. Do Yoga with Me is a fun, skillful and thoroughly encouraging learning community and I am so glad to be part of it. I can’t wait to meet everyone person-to-person in the Level 4 Retreat!

The YTT is a fabulous program. The training materials are well organized and thorough. Any of my questions and technical issues were answered and resolved quickly. The physical practice is accessible and I feel like my practice will deepen with the new challenges. I couldn't be happier with how this is going with DYWM and grateful for the staff's efforts in creating this program. I'm looking forward to the retreat.

I want to share how grateful I am to all the team for making this course such a positive experience. I have learned so much and my confidence and teaching ability have rocketed. I now teach more than once a week and my student base is growing. The amount if support I have received from faculty throughout the course has been superb. Special mention to Rachel. Her teaching style is excellent, and her enthusiasm infectious. This is a fine lineage to come from.

Renee

"I started this program back in September because I felt I needed to challenge myself and I wanted to learn more about yoga. I am so incredibly grateful to the amazing teachers who have shared their gifts and knowledge through all of the courses in the program. I have enjoyed learning about yoga's history, the connection to anatomy, the subtle body and how it all ties together on the mat. I certainly got to work outside my comfort zone in creating the videos for the assessment! I am also grateful for my fellow students and seeing your learning journeys in your reflections. I look forward to continuing to learn! Thank you!"

Christine

Teacher, Ohio, USA

I am currently enrolled in DoYogaWithMe’s teacher training. I love how knowledgeable and approachable the instructors are. Not only do the teachers have so much valuable information to offer, they are very open to answering questions from students; it’s clear the instructors leading this training love what they do and want to help spread the awesomeness that yoga has to offer! I am already a certified yoga teacher, but I chose to do this training because I knew how beneficial it would be for my personal growth and improvement as both a student and a teacher. In my cohort group, there is a variety of experience levels. There are longtime yoga practitioners as well as students who are newer to the practice. This training is for anyone who loves yoga, whether or not you plan to teach! I definitely recommend this training.

"There is too much to say. I will simply express my gratitude for all the learning - from our faculty to the cohort and even, heck, to myself. I am grateful for Rachel's love of anatomy, David's guidance in helping discover the pelvic floor, Fiji's chakra knowledge , and Tracey's simple approach to yoga philosophy. I have loved every minute of it. I am looking forward to letting it all soak in and when I practice any of the amazing parts of yoga, notice all the little new things I know, see them grow and smile."

Plan Your Training

You can do any available course at any time, but we highly recommend that you follow them in the order displayed, and - even better - that you join others in a student cohort. You will have access to your courses for 18 months from the date of purchase (with an option to extend to lifetime access for a nominal fee). At the bottom of this page you will see our Level 1 and 2 course packages.

  • Option 1- Cohort: Join a cohort to begin your yoga teacher certification on a specific date and follow the courses in order with a support group of peers. We recommend this path.

  • Option 2 - Self-Paced: Move through each Level's certification at your own pace.

  • Option 3 - A La Carte: Do any course that appeals to you in whatever order you want (not recommended for certification path, but ideal for continuing education for current teachers or keen students.)

What is a Cohort?

A cohort is a group of students who move through the training together, on the same weekly schedule, often doing assignments together. Each cohort has a monthly online meetings and practices with faculty to connect and get feedback.

  • Our next Level 1 Cohorts begin May 10/21 & Sep 6/21.

  • Time Commitment: 5-7 hours per week.

  • Cohort length: Level 1 is 15 weeks; Level 2 is 17 weeks.

Benefits of Joining a Cohort

  • Access to a group of peers

    Learning with others enhances your learning experience and gives you the opportunity to connect with other students from around the world.

  • Stay on track

    A manageable weekly work load and special activities with your peer group help you stay on track and motivated.

  • Better access to faculty

    Meet with your faculty every month in our special faculty-cohort meetings and livestream yoga practices.

Benefits of Self-Paced or A La Carte

  • Convenience

    Do courses when you want, at your own pace. Work as quickly as you want, or take your time.

  • Choose your own adventure

    For a la carte learning, take just the courses you want to deepen your personal practice and passion for yoga.

  • Access to faculty

    Access faculty through email and Q&A forums. Participate in the special livestream yoga practices that are just for members of the teahcer training community.

The program will include deep practices, applied anatomy, sequencing projects, asana labs, and plenty of practice teaching to get you ready to take the seat of the teacher. At the successful completion of Level 3, you will earn your 200-Hour Basic Yoga Teacher Training Certification and be able to teach yoga.

FAQs

  • Is this YTT US Yoga Alliance approved?

    Yes. We are a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance, ID 238368. Our program was first created as an in-person training, then developed for the online space by our program director and instructional designer, Rachel Scott. We do want to advise all prospective students that the landscape for online yoga teacher training is shifting. As of 2019, Yoga Alliance did not register online yoga teacher training. However, the necessity to adapt for COVID has shown us that online yoga teacher training is not only possible, it can even offer advantages over in-person programs. You should be aware that Yoga Alliance may change their requirements for online teacher training in the future, which may impact if we choose to stay a member. You should be aware that Yoga Alliance currently offers no guidelines for online yoga teacher training, so the programs out there really run the gamut in quality. Our program director holds a Masters in Online Education, and has developed the DoYogaWithMe Program to meet university standards.

  • Can I teach with this yoga teacher certification?

    Yes! Absolutely. You will be certified to teach and will have earned your 200-Hour Yoga Teaching Certification after you successfully complete Level 3 and you will be able to apply for insurance for teaching yoga. However, we strongly recommend that you also complete Level 4, which is our final, in-person retreat. In Level 4, you will learn the essential in-person skills that are simply not possible to teach online, such as hands on assists, demonstrations, and personal presence. When you complete Level 4, you will earn your 250-Hour DoYogaWithMe Teaching Certification.

  • Can I preview the program and curriculum to get a sense of it?

    Yes, you can take our Level 1 Orientation, which provides a thorough overview of the program. You can find it our All Courses page.

  • How are lessons delivered and how will you assess my teaching?

    Course lessons in Level 1 and Level 2 are delivered through a combination of online videos, interactive worksheets, readings, and multiple choice quizzes. Level 3 courses are delivered in person online, where you will do practices, asana labs, small group activities, and practice teaching. Every online course that you take in Level 1 and Level 2 includes a multiple choice exam that is designed to reinforce your learning. At the end of Level 1 and Level 2, you take a cumulative online exam as well as submit teaching videos and sequences to our lead faculty for review. You will then have a personal 1:1 meeting with faculty to review your work, see what you are doing well, and identify learning opportunities. In Level 3, we work with you in real-time for 40 hours to hone and integrate your teaching skills in preparation for your 200-hour practicum. The final practicum in Level 3 consists of you teaching live for about 20 minutes. This is an amazing - and exciting - opportunity to share your teaching in real time with faculty and peers.

  • What if I enroll, but then need to defer or take more time in the program?

    We understand that life sometimes can throw you a curveball! If you need to defer your start date - or if you are in a training and need more time - then just let us know. We are happy to move your enrollment to a subsequent cohort. We believe this training should support your life and well-being - not be a cause of stress!

  • What style or styles of yoga will be taught and will I learn to teach?

    In this program, you will learn to sequence and teach practices in the hatha and vinyasa style. From this starting point, you will have a strong foundation in understanding alignment, asana, peak pose sequencing, transitions, breathwork and the many tools that go into creating a class “style.” This foundation will be a launching pad for you to safely and confidently develop your own unique teaching voice and style.

  • How long does it take to complete the program?

    If you join a Cohort and stay on schedule, you can complete Level 1-3 (and earn your 200-hour yoga teacher certification) in 9 months. For example, if you start Level 1 in January, you could begin Level 2 in May and take your Level 3 in September. Level 4, to complete your 250 hours, is scheduled on a yearly basis. However, you can take more time with the program if needed. If you choose to, we encourage students to complete the program within 18 months so that you can keep momentum in your learning.

  • What payment options and plans to you offer?

    We accept credit cards or PayPal. All prices are listed in US dollars and payments are converted to US dollars if paying with another currency. We also offer monthly payment plans that split the sum into smaller amounts so that you can pay over several months.

  • If the program is on-demand, what opportunities are there for faculty support and interaction with other students?

    We believe faculty interaction and feedback is crucial to learning. There are many ways to connect with your faculty during your program: - Submit a question to the individual course's Q&A discussion or reflection section 1) Email faculty directly 2) Contact faculty through your cohort 3) Set up a free 1:1 with your Program Director, anytime 4) Receive personalized feedback at the end of each level when you submit your assessment (each session is about 45 minutes to an hour with faculty 1:1) 5) During the Level 3 online, live program (40 hours) 6) During the Level 4 in-person retreat (50 hours)

    I thought this training entailed the perfect amount of detail and great tricks for remembering such as: sagittal- somersault, coronal- cartwheel, and transverse- twisting. These presentations were clear and easy to understand. I loved the exercise of writing the anatomical positioning of chair.

    I found this course very thorough and well done. Rachel unpacks the various aspects of breathing in a meaningful and practical way. I found the use of visuals (i.e. skeleton and videos) especially helpful in understanding how certain muscles and bones work when we breathe. The breathing exercises and asanas were perfectly aligned with the theoretical part enabling us to practice physically what we had learned mentally. Thank you Rachel!

    This course has taught me to love, appreciate, and wonder in awe of my body in so many new ways. I have always been curious about the capacity of the mind-body connection and the complexities of the body, and I feel so much more confident, competent, and motivated to keep practicing, learning, and growing with this yoga teacher training. The teachers are so thoughtful and invested and the capacity to pace myself helps eliminate pressure and stress in the learning process. Thanks and namaste all~
