I think this is a wonderful and much needed program. I see this specialty really helping so many lives. Even as a trained midwife I learned so much! I was personally guided and mentored through this entire journey and was provided with honest and constructive feedback that I greatly appreciate.

Rachelle Stimac

I must say, I enrolled for the holistic program and I’ve listened to the first audio introduction and OH MY I am excited! This course is what my dreams are made of. Cannot waaaait to have these tools under my belt. Doula School is incredible. I am so grateful for you!

Johanna

The videos on these modules for the dual stream are SO GOOD. First of all it’s great to be able to see/hear you guys especially as a home-study person and secondly so much of the content is covering stuff I was really wondering about (e.g what is meant by emotional support, and the nuances of relationship building with primary care folks). Loving it!!

Do I need a 200-hour certification to take the course?

While prior teaching experience is helpful, it’s not necessary. Familiarity with yoga terminology and asanas is recommended for easier assimilation of course content.

Much of the course and the postures are referred to in sanskrit and english terminology. It’s certainly recommended to have a previous practice of the asana or postures as the course content will flow with more ease and understanding and be able to assimilate the information more quickly.

Our online training allows you to work at your own pace, accommodating family and work demands. 

We recognize the significant demands of family life and balancing work responsibilities. Our online yoga teacher training courses are designed to accommodate your schedule. You can progress at your own pace by accessing the videos and navigating through the course manual and workbook as per your convenience.

The live virtual covers most of what you need to know during class hours.

What is your refund policy?

We do not offer refunds for our online courses due to the extensive investment in course content. 

What if I can’t attend the live sessions?

Recorded sessions are available for reference after each live session. Ensure you catch up before the next live session to stay on track.

Our self-paced program allows you to access pre-recorded videos at your convenience. It does not include live zoom classes with teachers.
