How it Works

Welcome To Our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification For Educators

We are thrilled to bring you our updated 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification specifically designed for educators. In this training, Educators will learn how to integrate the ancient wisdom teachings of Yoga, mindfulness, and meditation into their daily lives and into their lesson plans. Our integrative approach helps teachers support students to have an experiential learning experience where students see appropriate adult interactions, intrinsic motivation, the application of discernment, self-regulation, appropriate self-soothing, and self-compassion in real-time. Educators can then interweave these concepts more fluidly in their planning without taking away from district-mandated curricula. The result is a more resonant classroom environment where students thrive and teachers do more than just survive.

This training will help you take your practice to the next level, give you a 200-hour certificate that will allow you to register with Yoga Alliance, and it will give you insight and specialized training in teaching philosophical and psychological concepts found within the ancient teachings of Yoga and meditation to all ages.

    Our program is an alternative to in-studio Yoga Teacher Trainings, one that maintains both the depth of learning and personalized experience one should expect in a Yoga 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 who 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.

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.

    What You'll Learn

    My Vinyasa Practice teaches on traditional yogic principles and history, and offers the most authentic yoga teacher training available.

    Your Instructor

    Michelle Young
    Michelle Young

    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.
