Why is it called “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box?”

In 1998, Aura Wellness Center started offering Yoga Teacher Training, led by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, YACEP, called “Yoga Teacher Training Camps” – a full-month immersion course.

Convenient Training

By 2002, many of our local students had said they wanted to take Yoga Teacher Training; however, due to family obligations, work schedules, and cost, it was impossible to take a month off and become a Yoga teacher. Dr. Paul Jerard started thinking about how to make an affordable, convenient, and self-paced training to work on anyone’s schedule.

Worldwide Need

He made these new courses with the same curriculum, materials, and lessons as onsite training so that a graduating teacher would have the same experience. These courses would be later shipped in boxes worldwide with a syllabus, teacher tips, exams, media, and books that became known as the “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box.”

Online and Affordable

Nowadays, many courses have shifted to online formats, mainly due to increased shipping costs and the convenience of receiving learning electronically. However, we have kept the name “Camp-in-a-Box” in our courses, as it is what many people know us by, and it is part of our proud history of offering affordable training.
