200hr Yoga Essence Virtual Teacher Training


We offer open enrollment, so you can move through most of the training at your own pace.  Yoga Alliance has approved our program to run online through the end of 2021 due to COVID. * Remember, you have LIFELONG ACCESS to our material and can continue to access and enjoy through the material for a lifetime.  We are so excited to bring you transformative components of our in-studio 200hour program from the comfort of your own home.

Our in-studio 200hour program is registered with Yoga Alliance and is, therefore, an RYS- registered yoga school. Due to COVID-19, Yoga Alliance sanctioned online learning and because our 200hr Virtual Yoga Teacher Training adheres to their standards, it allows us the opportunity to bring you this discounted program that may not be available in the future.

Yoga Essence provided an incredible program for learning. I feel fully equipped to teach and assist. I have a much deeper range of knowledge about the anatomy of the body, about assisting the flow, the history of the types of yoga, and how to show up to lead a class. This elevates my personal practice and my awareness to bring a safe practice to my students. Yoga essence is an empowering program to give me a well rounded education for my journey into Teaching Yoga. Chelsea and Nicole are amazing teachers and I would recommend yoga essence to anyone looking to complete the YTT program.

YE strives to help an individual flourish into a well rounded yoga teacher. The program is complete and offers many opportunities to practice teaching in a true class setting. It was a nourishing experience that I am truly blessed to have had.

The YTT Program at Yoga Essence provided me with the tools and confidence I needed for yoga instruction and allowed me to deepen my own practice. I’m forever grateful for the caring teachers and the close the participants developed.

Tracey M.

I never thought the training was going to be as deep and extensive as it was. It shocked me at first but I’m so grateful because it added so much more value to the principals and practices I have grow to love over the years. I feel very equipped to be an honest and thoughtful teacher in the yoga community. I would highly recommend this program/school to anyone who truly wants to learn all of what yoga has to offer both personally and professionally.
