This 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training is bundled with our Meditation Teacher Training.
Due To COVID-19, We Have Moved Our Training Online.
Our Yoga Teacher Training Is Approved Through Yoga Alliance.
Anyone who enrolls under Yoga Alliance's temporary provision for online learning
will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance.
How it Works
Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training Facilitated Online
Access our training anytime from anywhere in the world. Deepen your practice and enhance your teacher toolkit with our courses and trainings.
Our program is an alternative to in-studio Yoga & Meditation Teacher Trainings, one that maintains both the depth of learning and personalized experience one should expect in a Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training. My Vinyasa Practice is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance. As of March 2020, Yoga Alliance instructed its RYS's to move their training programs online. Our 200 hour Yoga Teacher training is currently being facilitated online. Students can complete the entire training online, and at their own pace. All students who complete training are considered a Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT), and students enroll into training during their temporary online provision will have the option to register with Yoga Alliance. You can find our YA profile HERE. Once trainees graduate, they maintain access to training materials for life.
The Meditation Training is a level one certification designed to give you the foundational tools and techniques necessary to achieve meditative states, and then transfer these skills to your students. Learn how to hone your breath and body awareness, how visualization can aid in meditation, and when specific complementary therapies can be of benefit. Additionally, you will learn the roles of non-attachment and letting go as it pertains to your meditation practice, and eventually, how to effectively teach these skills to other students.
This training is highly experiential, and it is important that the student commits to their own regular meditation practice. Journaling and reflection will play an important role in the student’s learning. As you consistently practice and experience the myriad of possibilities found within the practice, you will become a more compassionate teacher.
Flexible Access with Community Connection
Register anytime and work at your own pace. All required texts are included in electronic format. Students will receive access to pre-recorded video lectures, asana practices with Michelle, written content, as well as a one-week pass to our online studio. Students also learn from live weekend lectures (Saturdays and Sundays via Zoom) which are recorded for those who cannot attend. We also offer practice teaching opportunities and over 15 weekly office hours with Lead Trainers and our Peer Support Team. These office hours provide additional learning and the opportunity to ask questions about content. Additionally, students can expect one-on-one coaching, unlimited access to lead trainers, podcast content, and access to a diverse and intimate online community with members from around the globe.
Once you have completed your training you will receive your certificate and be eligible to teach yoga anywhere at the 200 Hour level. Teachers are eligible to teach private clients, groups, and corporate clients in studio, gym, retreat, and clinical settings.

A newfound confidence and a comfortability in teaching others after having embodied the teachings yourself.
My yoga practice began in 2004 in Kuwait after the birth of my oldest son. I was looking for a way to get back into shape while cultivating some balance in my life. I studied Ashtanga Yoga both privately with my teacher and independently for a decade before I decided to take my practice to the next level.
I hold a M.Ed in Curriculum Development, I'm an E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance, and I'm a C-IAYT Yoga Therapists serving populations in Eating Recovery, Behavioral Health, and Cardiac Rehabilitation. Over the past decade, I've built a sustainable company in the health and wellness space that is geared to professionalizing the industry and creating equitable employment opportunities.
I teach public classes in Austin, Texas, I teach corporate classes and private classes as my schedule permits, and I host workshops and retreats. In 2020 I open my first yoga studio near at Jacob Fontaine Lane and we are opening our second studio on South Congress in 2023. It is an honor to be of service in this community.
