About the Program
The Bright From The Heart Yoga & Wellness Virtual Teacher Training program is an in depth 200-hour training program that is grounded in a holistic and experiential approach. We also wanted to make an even bigger impact in the world, so we have always required every student to perform Seva Yoga (selfless service) hours to a nonprofit, and in addition decided our Certified Online Yoga Teacher Training Program would give 5% to organizations that make a difference in communities, and the world. If you have an organization you would like to support by offering this program to your members/supporters let us know and we can get that setup! The more people, animals, and organizations we help the better! This is a unique program founded in love that we are very proud of and hope to take it global to reach, support, and fundraise for as many nonprofits as possible.
Our Yoga Teaching Training offers people an exploration into their own personal practice. YTT isn't just about yoga posture, it is so much more! It teaches how to apply yoga philosophy to every day life using The Yoga Sutras as guidance. Those completing the Virtual program receive a 200HR certificate, and if the she/he is interested in sharing yoga with others, will have the knowledge to do so.

Although this program is online, it still requires the same amount of hard work that an in-person program requires. While the program is in-depth for a reason, we realized that by allowing flexibility in the schedule through online instruction we were able to open the door to more people by creating access to a program many are interested, but just can't join because of in-person weekends that conflict with other obligations. Through the virtual classroom students can move at their own pace throughout the program length, allowing more people to further their wellness journey.
The program is open to all individuals who are interested in deepening their personal yoga practice, and while many take the course for their own knowledge, some students want to share their knowledge by teaching others. This program will give each student the necessary education and background needed to share with others in a safe and confident manner.
This is an amazing experience for everyone! Students learn so much through teacher instruction, guest teachers/leaders with expertise in specific areas (some examples may include - pregnant students, essential oils, and/or an Ayurvedic diet), participation in positive, life-changing, classes, and through involvement with a nonprofit of choice to practice Seva (Karma) Yoga (the act of selfless service).
The following areas are covered:
•Yoga History and Philosophy •Asana – Form, Benefits and Contraindications •Pranayama & Meditation •Kriyas, Chanting, Mantra, •Practice Teaching •Various Teaching Styles •Qualities of a Teacher •Business Aspects of Teaching Yoga •Anatomy & Physiology •Physical and Subtle Bodies •Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers •Language and Voice •Class Sequencing •Practicum - which includes practice teaching, receiving feedback, observing others teaching and hearing/giving feedback. Additionally, the practicum can include assisting students while someone else is teaching.
We are happy to announce that by switching to a more budget friendly platform, Open Learning, and not including the FREE monthly yoga classes throughout the YTT program, we are able to pass the savings on to you, the student. For this reason we are now able to offer the online YTT course at an even friendly price then we previously offered, while still being able to donate a portion to nonprofit and also still honor our time and energy that goes into creating such an in-depth learning proggram.
