    I want to thank Paul and Aura Wellness Center for a both comprehensive and economical yoga teacher training course. This is the second time I have recertified after the initial course, and I could hardly be happier. I turn down job opportunities for lack of time. And whenever I have a question or concern, Paul is always quick to respond. Thank you for the BEST CAREER IN THE WORLD!

    Aura Wellness is a fantastic online Yoga Teacher Training program. It thoroughly covers classical Yoga, all aspects of the eight limbs, modern approaches to Yoga, in addition to anatomy and how to give proper hands on assists and adjustments. Dr. Paul Jerard was prompt with any questions I had throughout the program, which was wonderful. With my busy schedule, often working over 40 hours per week, a remote Yoga Teacher Training program was the perfect fit for me. It was very flexible with my schedule, and I still got feedback on my teaching styles by submitting videos of me teaching students and receiving valuable feedback on them. I feel confident in my ability to safely and effectively guide a yoga class. I highly recommend Aura Wellness to anyone who is considering a YTT program. I look forward to taking continuing education classes through Aura Wellness in the future!

    I took a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Course/Platinum on 2012 and I also took a Chair Yoga, a Meditation, and a Kids Yoga Teacher Training Courses after that. It has been 7 years but I still ask Dr. Paul questions when I have a doubt about yoga and spirituality. Dr. Paul always gives me more than enough information and I am able to understand and find my answers. I feel that Aura Wellness Center is always supporting me when I need help even though I graduated 7 years ago! I’m fortunate enough to have found Aura Wellness Center as my yoga school. I will definitely recommend Aura Wellness Center for someone who is seeking a yoga journey.

    I highly recommend the online Yoga teacher training courses at Aura Wellness Center. I have completed my 300 hr YTT in Hatha, my Prenatal/Postnatal certification. Dr. Jerard is always available to assist with any questions that you might encounter and responds quickly to assist. The texts, videos, and all the content are a wealth of information and so valuable to your Yoga teacher training and continued education. The teacher trainings through Aura Wellness are so wonderfully put together and really guide you through the self study journey. I have had such a wonderful experience in my trainings through Aura Wellness Center and that wonderful experience has made me a confident, knowledgeable Yoga instructor. Thank you Dr. Jerard!

    After being released from a job I assumed I would retire from, I had the opportunity to choose my next path. I chose Yoga Teacher/Business Owner after a lifelong friend had graduated from her local yoga school. As I was around 2 hours away from a school that would not work for me so I jumped on the Web to research and that brought me to Aura Wellness Center. The curriculum was deep and well rounded and when finished I felt completely ready to begin my yoga instructor career. I know have a growing yoga studio, with private and corporate clients. The business instruction was wonderful. Even though I have a background in business, for those that do not have those experiences, the guidelines and advice are very valuable. I am currently a very small studio, but I know with what I have gained from my instruction I will continue to grow and prosper.

    “How can you know God if you don’t know your big toe?” (B.K.S. Iyengar) I came across this quote in the first few weeks of my studies with Aura Wellness Center. When I read these words, and let them fully commit to my memory, my grasp of yogic philosophy opened up a whole new adventure for me. I finally realized, I couldn’t be everything for everyone, all of the time. Had I not been taking this course, and had I not blindly stumbled into these words during my research, I would still be living a life of self-neglect. While I did learn how to care even more deeply for my students, and how to better assist and be there for them, ultimately, it was the rediscovery of my own capabilities that made this course one to recommend. I took the Hatha 300 hr platinum course. Every email I sent out for guidance was addressed within 24 hours by Dr Paul Jerard. He was encouraging, clear and concise in his instructions, and an overall pleasure to converse with. I also had the opportunity to speak with Jackie Stokes, whom, was a huge asset for me while uploading my coursework. Donna Corrigan was pleasant and professional during our brief interactions, and I found her to be quite easy to communicate with. I will be continuing my yoga teacher education through Aura Wellness Center. If someone is looking for an abundance of resources, professionalism, and courtesy, then this is the place to go.

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to earn a teaching certificate for the people that live in the middle of nowhere. Without this online certification, this would not have been a reality for me. The course is thorough, precise, and takes serious dedication to complete. I gained a mountain of new information and plan on teaching what I know to my small community. I highly recommend this teacher training to any practicing yogi! If you find yourself on the fence about an online course, get off the fence and just go for it! You will not be disappointed.

    Dear Dr. Jerard, What a joy it was for me to receive my Yoga Teacher Diploma. Thank You very much. This has been a wonderful journey for me and one I will continue for life. I love doing yoga so when my yoga teacher was moving back to India and asked me to take over the class I was interested., but teaching was a challenge. The curriculum from Aura Wellness Center provided me with the information I needed know to become a effective yoga teacher. I have gained so much knowledge from the required books, the videos and the thought provoking questions I answered in the written test. I still love doing yoga and now I love teaching yoga too. I am very proud to be an Aura graduate. Marlene Saxe

    I am greatly thankful for the opportunity to have studied and worked towards my Yoga Teacher Certification through Aura Wellness Center. Distance learning for yoga may seem at first glance to be a difficult process but let me assure those of you that are debating the issue, it was for me the most satisfying and enriching method of learning to teach yoga. Dr. Paul Jerard and his wife, Marie are readily available to instruct and counsel as need be. Learning at my own pace and in the comfort of my own home, proved to be empowering and through the encouragement of the staff of Aura Wellness Center I gained a certain confidence that has proven most beneficial. The support of Aura Wellness Center does not stop upon completion of the course. I am assured that they are there to answer questions and help in anyway necessary. I have since contacted Dr. Jerard with questions and his answers are timely and patient. I decided to study yoga teacher training as a way to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was by far the best gift I could have given myself. I am grateful indeed. Rita Munn

    I have just received my “Hatha Yoga Teacher’s Diploma”, I am reading it again and again …. and I am so proud that I now have the chance to distribute Yoga to the world. When I took the decision to become a yoga teacher I informed myself where to go to, costs etc. Unfortunately, Yoga Schools were quite far away and also very expensive. Some “trainings” took about 3 years until you will be able to teach; and me being 41 … well, in my opinion this is a bit exaggerated. So, I thought this is not for me … but then my yoga teacher encouraged me to pursue my dream and recommended me Aura Wellness as a long-distance-course. Actually, I found it a great idea still having my doubts like “is that serious?”, “is it possible to become a yoga teacher although I am not in the school and even very far away?” “will I really learn something?”but I wanted to go for it! And yes, I have learned so much, it is absolutely possible to become a yoga teacher being so far away from the school. The programm is very complete and well explained, everything absolutely professional. The whole material was very helpful and offered many sources to learn from; DVDs, CDs, books etc. There are beautiful Chakra meditations in the Chakra Kit (plus much more), relaxation, self hypnosis CDs etc. I have it all on my mp3 and still use if very often as a guided meditation or even relaxation. DVDs on assisting, how to do a pose properly, everything clearly and well explained. As a big resource I even used the Newsletters, the Videos offered there; I applied the “Tapping technique against Anxiety” in my first yoga class (yes, I did my first class!!!!) and I had the sensation that the students liked it. Whenever I had a question I received the answer immediately, always very detailled and easy to understand. During the whole time of study I had the sensation of being in good hands and talking to professionals. What more is there to say? I can only recommend this course to anyone who feels the vocation to become a yoga teacher. You will be in good hands! Thanks Paul, Namasté & OM Shanti to all of you

    First of all, as english as my third language, it was very convenient for me to study online, because I could click onto google translate anytime. I could always pause during my study and be able to understand every sentence. I also have two young children who need me all the time, but I was able to take advantage of my free time to study at my own pace. Every time when I had questions, Dr. Paul always gave me detailed answers quickly and compassionately. There was no “mechanical” feel with any of my dialog with Dr. Paul or his staff. The Aura Wellness Center is very organized. I felt Dr. Paul has sincere enthusiasm to teach Yoga worldwide. I was very lucky to find a Yoga Teacher Training school like the Aura Wellness Center. Thank you very much for this great opportunity! Namaste, Ryongdan Nakajima

    I completed my Hatha yoga 300 hour teacher training with Aura wellness centre , online program. This fantastic and through program allowed me to fulfill my dreams of become a yoga teacher. As I was unable to attend a conventional yoga school due to family commitments, The online program allowed me to study and learn on my own schedule. At first I was a bit unsure of this method, as I was worried I would miss out on valuable information, however, now I can attest that the program is absolutely thorough!!!! Along with my regular practice, I was able to learn the theoretical and the practical information required. For anyone that has a very busy schedule, this online program is ideal. I am so grateful to the team at Aura wellness center, they were always available to answer any questions and they offered excellent support and mentoring. I am very proud to have passed this course with high honors, I embark on an exciting journey in teaching what I love and believe in. It has opened up so many doors for me. Thank you so much for this great chance!

    I have just recieved my certification for Yoga Instructor. As a retired teacher, I wanted to move on to be qualified to teach something I love to do. Aura Wellness Center was the only class I found that allowed me to do course work over a period of time, instead of an intense 6-8 week class. At 60 years old, I felt that I could not do a concentrated yoga class because my arthritis would limit me. By taking my time, and listening to my body, I was able to feel good about learning how to teach yoga. I feel that now I can teach Hatha yoga with confidence and share my knowledge. Thank you.

    I honestly can’t begin to express my sincere thanks to Aura Wellness Center for their Yoga courses. After several years of practicing and studying Yoga my “guru” encouraged me to become a Yoga teacher, problem was, there was no way that I could afford to leave home and family and enroll in a Yoga teacher training course because we lived in a rather remote part of the world. It was just not possible for me to fly half-way around the world to become a certified Yoga Teacher. Aura Wellness was a genuine answer to prayer. At first I was skeptical of online courses. I spent literally months pouring over online course curriculum from different Yoga schools and communicating by email with various school owners. I asked for copies of course curriculum and discussed them with my Yoga teacher at her studio. She poured over course curriculum with me and helped me choose. My Yoga teacher was impressed by the Aura Wellness course curriculum (she studied directly under Pattabhi Jois). So I was confident when I enrolled in Aura Wellness Center’s Yoga Teacher Training Program! I was amazed when the materials from Aura Wellness arrived. The course was much more intense than I had first thought. During the times I was taking the course I lived and breathed Yoga-constantly because the course challenged me and brought me into new levels that I had previously not known. I loved Yoga before and loved it even more because of this course! Paul was always available by email. At times I feared I asked too many questions! He always responded to me in a way that made me feel as if I was the only student he had! The course is excellent. It challenged me, educated me and has since spurred me to continue my education to become even more knowledgeable as a Certified Hatha Yoga teacher.

    I received my certification diploma about 2 1/2 months ago, and even now when I look at it on the wall of my office I feel a great sense of accomplishment and gratitude for the program which enabled to make my seemingly impossible dream of becoming a yoga instructor a reality. Financially and logistically, attending an intensive on-site training program was just not feasible. The structured distance learning program provided by Aura Wellness Center was amazing. The audiovisual and reading materials were obviously chosen with care and continue to be valuable to me. The instructions regarding written and practical testing were clear, and Paul responded in a timely manner to questions I had, particularly with regard to class sequencing which can be challenging. My studies and personal practices utilizing the principles I was learning and my reading helped to gain insight into my personal and professional goals. It is with humility that I continue to learn and grow professionally but also with confidence and joy that I see my patients recovering from addiction develop through our yoga practice together a sense of self-worth and new skills to manage anxiety and depression. I would recommend the yoga instructor program at Aura Wellness Center to any aspirant dedicated to helping others transform their lives mentally, physically, and spiritually. Namaste!

    Dear Paul, I would like to thank Aura Wellness for an amazing, unique and thorough Teacher Training Program. I searched for an online Yoga training course and once I received my course from Aura Wellness, I realized, I truly had found the right one for me. I completed my course, received my Certificate and I am now a Certified Yoga Teacher. Thanks to your online resources I will continue my education with Aura Wellness. Training videos and articles, both on Facebook and your website have helped myself as a Teacher immensely for situations and students that are not mainstream. You have made me feel comfortable to ask questions at any time. I feel confident, with your training, to continue to teach my students and make a difference in the community. I highly recommend any teacher training program from Aura Wellness. You will no doubt be qualified, knowledgeable and confident to teach all sorts of styles of Yoga in a variety of settings. This course allows you to develop your own personal teaching style, yet teaches you the basics of Yoga and teaching a class, being professional and also safe modifications etc. The knowledge is truly endless and ever-changing! Thanks again to Aura Wellness for an undeniably thorough and unique Teacher Training Course I feel very lucky to have found you!! All the Best, Melissa Ouimette CYT Namaste’

    It is with utmost gratitude that I offer testimonial for Paul Jerard and Aura Wellness Center. My meeting with Dr. Paul was providential. At age 55, I had been devastated by four deaths in my family and it was only through incorporating yogic practice I achieved healing. Others who have acquired this profound peace can appreciate the desire to share that gift with others. I feel privileged to have had opportunity to be trained by Dr. Paul Jerard. I explored many certification programmes, both in Canada and the US and I’m thankful I chose Aura. It should be noted that not all schools are accredited, nor are all schools YA recognized. The course content was richly textured, exciting, complete, relevant, and gave me a firm footing in every aspect of Hatha yoga as a science, a philosophy and a therapy, plus meditation and chakra work as well as all the business planning aspects of Yoga. Paul was always very accessible and patient in his teaching and I was impressed with his depth of knowledge. The additional homework/essay/exam was great reinforcement and really helped solidify things in my mind. Knowing Paul has not only made me a confident yoga teacher, but his example of genuine kindness, caring and humility is something we should all aspire to. I now teach in a studio and recently conducted two weeks of yoga on the beach of a resort. A year ago this was just a beautiful dream; now it is a reality. It is important to add that upgrades via distance to the 240 hr course are a very convenient and cost-effective way to build your knowledge base and there is a great variety to choose from. I’m currently taking the Certified Meditation Teacher course and looking forward to incorporating it into my teachings and personal practice. For anyone considering yoga certification, regardless of age, I recommend Aura without hesitation. Susan Jones, Canada

    The information I received and learned through the Aura Yoga Teacher Training program gave me the knowledge and confidence to move forward with my teaching. Not only do I have a certificate to present to students and other interested persons, I have the inner knowledge that I am continuing my studies which ultimately benefits the students and myself. I am grateful to you and to Aura Wellness Center for the support throughout my training periods as well as when preparing for my recertification and for maintaining high standards for issuing certifications. I know and fully appreciate the amount of dedication required to complete each of the steps. Since receiving my initial Certificate, I continue teaching Yoga in a variety of settings. Thinking outside the box has allowed me to offer Yoga in a variety of ways. I have offered lunchtime yoga in boardrooms of banks as a way to allow employees to stretch and regroup during their busy and sometimes stressful days and have offered 10 minute yoga breaks and meditation instead of traditional coffee breaks during work days for others. I have offered classes through the University of North Dakota’s OLLI program, teaching students from 55 to 78 years old. I have taught during elementary school’s career fairs, and this fall will offer a full day of yoga classes to Girl Scouts during their summer camp. I teach 3 regular yoga classes each week and am continually blessed with wonderful students and opportunities. Being a Yoga teacher carries a huge responsibility – to our teachers, to ourselves, and to our students. If a teacher is motivated and adheres to a strict code of ethics, people will notice. Students will want to study with that teacher and will desire to share in the peace that emanates from the teacher. Obtaining my Certified Yoga Teacher Certificate from Aura Wellness Center has allowed me to go farther that I may have, given me confidence that I might not have had, and has allowed me to be included in Aura’s network of highly skilled graduates. Lucky me! May your path be Light! Namaste, Kay Kay Williams Grand Forks, ND

    Paul and Marie, I am so excited to have completed my Hatha Yoga teacher training through Aura Wellness Center’s program. It has been a long time goal of mine to share the benefits of yoga with others, in partial repayment to the practice for all of the benefits it has given me. I am especially excited to apply it to the work I do with individuals on the autism spectrum, as I have seen the enormous benefits of stress and anxiety reduction on many individuals with autism and have seen how it can assist with sensory modulation. While continuing to expand my own practice teaching yoga, I’m already in the process of co-authoring a book specifically on the benefits of yoga for individuals with autism with an occupational therapist colleague of mine. Again, thank you for the wealth of information in your course and your generous willingness to help me tailor the course specifically to meet my needs and interests. Namaste!

    I have completed the Hatha Yoga course with Aura Wellness Center, and I have to say it has been only a positive experience. Aura Wellness Center and in particular Dr. Jerard was encouraging, clear, always responded to my questions in a timely manner and the course is very comprehensive. The written material and DVD’s where excellent help to study and to have as a source of consultation through the learning/ teaching process. Aura offers an amazing opportunity with this online courses. I am already teaching twice a week and loving it and learning more and more every day. It has change my life in the most positive way imaginable. I highly recommend the Certification through Aura wellness Center. “Practice and all will follow” Thank you again, pura vida y namaste to all.

    The Aura Wellness Center Yoga Teacher Training has changed my life! I was so frustrated with the schedules and expense of other training programs. But this program has helped me to achieve my goal and I got a job teaching at my favorite studio 1 day after completion! Thanks so much to Paul and his staff for this opportunity and help along the way!

    The Yoga Teacher Training I obtained through Aura Wellness Center was outstanding. The material was challenging and provided me with a solid foundation for exploring many aspects of yoga. I was particularly impressed with the Anatomy and Physiology DVD which is the most thorough that I have ever seen. While the course contained a lot of information to absorb, a self-motivated individual would do well in this program. The reading material and written essays required critical thinking and a demonstrated commitment to the profession through personal practice. The examination questions encouraged recall of the readings and practical application through class participation in my area and self-practice. Thank you for providing a comprehensive training in Hatha Yoga. I feel honored to have received my Yoga Teacher Training through Aura Wellness Center.

    I am so grateful for Aura wellness center and the opportunity to become a certified yoga teacher from the comfort of my own home! I live very rurally and most yoga teacher trainings I looked into were cost and time prohibitive. Aura Wellness Center’s teacher training program was the only opportunity available to me that fit with my life’s circumstances. I appreciated the freedom that working from home afforded me in the process of studying and learning, I was better able to create my own unique approach to teaching by having the space and flexibility Aura’s teaching program provided for me, but also felt that there were clear guidelines and information to follow in the process. Anytime I had a question or an issue, Paul was always there, responding to my e-mails or calls right away and providing so much support and understanding. Thank you to everyone at Aura for helping me in the process of making a longstanding dream a reality!

Even with a prior knowlege of Yoga and its systems i found myself learning new things. I also received enough reading and media materials to last me a year and now that i have passed I am ready to set up my own company so all i can say is thank you to the entire Aura wellness team.

I feel so good after I completed my independent research…! Thank you for answering me right away with my each questions, it helped me a lot! You taught me how yoga can affect our lives for our new possibilities. Personally I became a much better person with a lot of compassion and deep love for other people…!

    When I decided to do my teacher training, I was not sure what direction I should take especially having been exposed to yoga for nearly 16 years. Also as a college professor, I had anxieties about getting back into the classroom. Colliding with Aura Wellness and Dr. Jerard was pure Karma. The attention that I got as a distance learning student was unbelievable. Dr. Jerard spent hours on the phone with me going over exam questions or explaining difficult to understand concepts. He was gentle, kind, patient, unpretentious and generous. This is exactly the yogini I wish to emulate and one day become. Since graduating, I have been teaching consistently and feel that I got the theoretical and practice foundation to make me do this work which I have now come to understand is my purpose. I am eternally grateful for all that Dr. Jereard and his family have done to prepare me for this new and powerful life journey. Michelle Cromwell, Ph.D. RYT, Reiki Master Teacher

    A year and a half ago my 68 year old father fell and broke his hip. He is a alcoholic and pill addict. It seemed his accidents and hospital visits were becoming more frequent. Him breaking his hip broke me also. I had had enough. I told him I did not want to be his Power of Attorney anymore and said I had a life and wanted to live it to the best that I could. I have problems of my own as with fibromylgia. The stress of dealing with him and his problems wasn’t working. I have not talked to my father for over a year now. My mother is just about the same without the alcohol, just add more pills. She is a walking pharmacy. It has now almost been ten years ago she received 9 shock treatments over a weeks period of time. I do not speak to her very much. It is limited. She’s just not all there and is very abusive with communication. My father and mother are divorced. I am an only child. I think after my dad broke his hip and we stopped talking I was on the brink of going into depression. I knew if I didn’t do something, anything, I was going to end up maybe like them. My grandmother died 3 years prior and she was my rock. After her death I spent over a year in therapy. One of my questions to the therapist was….Am I going to end up like my parents? She told me NO, only if you want to. My main mission has been to be as mentally healthy as I can be. To learn from their mistakes, to be a better person and to know the difference. Getting my Yoga Certification has been a wonderful experience in my life. Yoga has been a very good friend to me in my hour of need. I know Yoga will not wrong me. It can only help me deal with life, feel better about myself and help others to feel better about themselves. I want to thank you, your wife and Aura Wellness Center for helping me seek wellness. I love getting the emails from your school and getting the text messages when there are new articles to read. It filled a hole in my life that needed to be filled. Thank you for being my friend and mentor. It has been liberating. The reading, learning how to write a MLA Format essay paper, learning meditation, learning breathing techniques, learning the asanas, just everything about the experience has been the best therapy I could buy. It surely has kept the monkey mind at bay. Thank you, thank you and thank you! Namaste, Marla McIntyre

    “I very much enjoyed the experience of studying for the Hatha Yoga Diploma. There is a plethora of great information to study: the online resources backing up the hardcopy study material is awesome! Videos, articles, marketing ideas and plans… so much information. Really great value! AURA Wellness Center is a great choice for Yoga Teacher Training courses. Paul and Marie are great teachers, and as Paul was my main contact, I found him to be very knowledgable, easy to communicate with and accommodating. If I needed to have something explained, all I would have to do was to shoot him an email with my query, and Paul would respond in quick time with the appropriate solution. He is a really great mentor to go to at any time and discuss something. He is very generous with his time and knowledge”. “The material is so well structured that I found that I began to research deeper than what was probably needed for the written exam… I enjoyed the research, study, writing process so much that I found I was going deeper and deeper into a subject… and I found Paul to be encouraging”. “Would I do it all over? Absolutely! In fact, I am signing up for another course in the New Year… I can’t wait! I am planning to work my way through several of the AURA Wellness Yoga courses over the next few years! Thanks so much Paul and Marie!” Shanthi Bhavana, Graduate Yoga Teacher, AUSTRALIA

    I have been practicing yoga off and on since high school. Things in my life would happen and I would stop practicing, only to find that I felt imbalanced. I have always returned to yoga as it has been the one practice that has consistently provided me with equilibrium, peace of mind, heart and soul, the ability to truly connect with my body, and provide me the strength to persevere. I had researched all available teacher training programs and found them all to be very expensive which presented a barrier for my education and training. I discovered Aura Wellness Center through my search and was pleasantly surprised that I could afford to attend. I knew I could complete the course in a short amount of time but chose to take my time, not rushing my learning experience. This year has been transformational for me having experienced both professional challenges alongside personal accomplishments. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a disabled Veteran providing mental health counseling at the Louisville VAMC. I decided to embark on this path of becoming a Certified Yoga Teacher to expand my personal practice and give back. I started my own business, although small and still getting off its feet, a few months ago, teaching out of a local library. I offer my classes at a low price so those who are interested and don’t have a lot of money could afford to attend at least once per week. I also provide free classes to my fellow Veterans and Active Duty Service Members. I truly appreciate Dr. Jerard’s guidance whenever I had a question. He was available and promptly responded when I needed feedback. All the materials were more than I expected and have enriched my learning experience and personal growth. Please feel free to visit my website and comment on the posted blogs {www.hrcyoga.com}. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity to share this path to peace.

    Studying at Aura Wellness under Your guidance has been a valuable experience for me. I tried a few teacher`s training courses in the past but dropped out of them because I was not content about the quality and usefulness of what was tought there for my practice as a yoga teacher. I am a certified fitness instructor, and looked at the courses from the perspective of someone working with people who have different levels of fitness and physical limitations. That is why I value high the content of Your courses with their emphasis on safety and wellbeing of the participants. In my own history as a participant of various yoga classes I met quite a number of teachers whose assisting boiled down to pushing the students beyond their current abilities. The exam also was very concrete with emphasis on what is really important and useful during the class. I also appreciate very much the help You offered, which created a nice learning atmosphere, all questions being answered inmediately! Namaste! Agata Konecka/Baller Norway

I enjoyed the array of information provided in the resource books also, and know they will be a long term and helpful support to my yoga class planning. Thank you for a great opportunity and I am out there teaching already. Best regards, Namaste, Melinda Smith

    My experience learning with Aura Wellness Center was exactly what I needed to bring me to the next level in my Yoga practice personally and professionally. The books, videos, and tools provided are thorough and give you a strong basis to begin guiding others as a yoga instructor. The expectations for the student is high, but also completely attainable due to the quick responses and help from Dr. Jerard. This is a great program for those who are dedicated to becoming a quality instructor, but are also needing flexibility to work at your own pace from your home to receive your teaching certification.

    Dr. Jerard, Thank you so very much for all your help throughout the course. I’ve been practicing Yoga for about eight years and have been thinking about becoming certified for a long time. With going to college full time and working, I wasn’t sure it would be a good time to add more to my plate, but I’m happy I finally decided to do it. Now I can start sharing my love of Yoga with others. You always replied to all my emails within a day and never made me feel like I was asking silly questions. The study materials taught me a lot and I will continue to use them, all the instructions were clear, and I truly feel I’ve learnt a lot. I highly recommend this course. Even if you have other things going on in your life, you can work on this at your own pace. Aura packages seemed like the best and I can truly say, thanks to Dr. Jerard and great study materials, I wasn’t disappoint. It was even better than I expected! Thank you so much!

I am currently holding one class a week and find teaching Yoga very enjoyable and rewarding. Yoga has changed my outlook to life in a positive way. My compassion has increased, my stress levels have decreased and I believe I am more at peace with myself. I look forward to holding more classes and hopefully help others the way Yoga has helped me. I highly recommend the training course and look forward to further studies. With Love and Peace Vera Simonetti Australia

    I just wanted to take some time to say thank you for the wonderful opportunity you provided me through the Aura Wellness Center for my level 1 certification. Yoga Teacher Certification. When I first read about your program on your web site I was so happy to find a way to accomplish my goal for certification through an independent study. Then when I spoke with you about the program I was again so happy to speak with a fellow yogi who is truly enlightened, experienced, and one who really understands that the knowledge of yoga is meant to be shared. Your program gives generously.

    The books provided for study are all comprehensive.They are truly valuable resources. In addition I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to include my studies from my years of practice. I am very grateful for all of your support through out the entire course. Since completion of your course I have been teaching yoga to a group of middle school students at a Montessori school. I work at the school as a co-teacher and a specialist, teaching dance and yoga to ages three years to middle school. In my classes I have emphasized that yoga is not violent on the muscles like traditional exercises. I teach that Hatha style yoga is a gentle way to strengthen and tone the muscles, as well being a great way to calm the body and the mind. I have also taught that the benefits gained comes with time and patients.To my wonder and joy they have been open and interested in the classes. So I send much gratitude and joy your way. It is my goal from here to teach and share yoga with as many different populations as possible. I will also be in touch for continued education with your center.

    like to say a few words of praise for Aura Wellness Center and its wonderful teachers. Without their program I would not have been able to do Yoga Teacher Education in English in the country I live, which is Chile, South America. I have two little kids, so just taking off for a month to do a course elsewhere would have been out of the question. Aura´s program gave me the opportunity to choose my own pace and the right time to work on it. The team at Aura Wellness Center is very thorough and fast in answering emails. I love the curriculum of the course as well, all aspects are covered and it is a great base to work from. I most definitely choose my CEC with them again. Highly recommended to everybody out there looking for a distance learning Yoga Teacher course! And now, I am getting ready to start my own yoga retreat center in Chile, thanks to you, Aura Wellness Center! Namaste Tanja Henderson

    Thank you, Paul and everyone, for a wonderful experience learning to be a yoga teacher. I certified three years ago, but as with many things (and especially new businesses) I have only recently been able to quit my day job and teach yoga full-time. I mainly teach seniors and disabled students, and I LOVE getting up and going to work each day. Today a student in a senior class asked me if I had read the article on yoga in today’s local newspaper; I had not. She said it was about injuries, personality issues some instructors have, competition, how to NOT teach poses, and many other warnings. She said, “You’re doing everything right.” I came home and read it online. I had indeed already been exposed to these concerns and worked hard to avoid them. But anything I know is only what was taught me by someone else. Thank you, thank you, for your concise, clear, and complete instruction. It’s made all the difference in my life.

    A Very Happy New Year to you and your family. I would like to thank you for a wonderful on line course. I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to teach yoga. Most importantly, I wish to thank you so much for your support and encouragement. You told me when I received my coursework that I could ask questions and your advice at any time and that was absolutely what happened. No matter how trivial the question, you replied quickly and with kindness.

    I passed with High Honours and since then you have still been available with positive words and encouragement and I am ever grateful to you that you provide this after care. Your newsletters are a wealth of information and interest and you are always a huge inspiration to me. I am really excited about my future as a yoga teacher as it has opened up new paths for me and I am meeting some wonderful people. So once again Paul, thank you so much for everything.

    I am so happy to have found Aura Wellness Center’s online course. I had been very bummed out thinking it would take me years to save enough money to become a teacher, but this program made it accessible for people like me who don’t have a lot of money and who can’t take time off work to travel or be away in a program for weeks at a time. I don’t feel that taking an online course has made my training any less valid than people who have trained in person at other training programs. The Hatha Yoga Camp-in-a-Box is very thorough. I finished the training feeling confident and well educated. I had help and support whenever I needed it. I received my certificate 5 months ago and am already teaching 7 classes a week at several locations including studios, gyms and recreational centers as well as privately and independently. And the information doesn’t stop when you get your certificate. There are educational blogs and newsletters, as well as marketing tips for getting yourself out there, that keep the information pouring in. Thank you so much, Paul! Namasté!

    Dear Paul and Aura Wellness Centre!

    I would like to say a BIG thank you to you and your team who made it possible to help me become a certified yoga teacher. The support and knowledge you offered was priceless!

    The path of yoga has changed my life and the possibility of doing yoga teaching training course online was an important way how to get on that path. I honestly appreciate that such a course exists for it gives a chance for people who work full time, or have not enough money, to alter their lives. This course was a beginning of my exploring more and going deeper into yoga.

    I have also changed the way I eat and finally became a vegan! I would like to suggest the book from Sharon Gannon Yoga and Vegetarianism to help you understand why diet is important to all of us and to our planet.

    I recommend this course to anybody who has stamina and determination to make their dream come true.

    I wish you all the best in your life.

    Peace and love to everyone!

    Hi, my name is Isabella and I want to thank Aura Wellness Center for the fantastic teacher training program. Since January 2012 I have been living and working in Italy, after almost five years spent in the US. Working as civil servant, I have no chance to attend on-site training courses and in Italy there is nothing like the Aura Wellness Center on-line course. Thanks to Aura I studied yoga at home, feeling always supported, counting on very helpful website contents, being part of a community, and sharing the great love for yoga. Now, I am preparing the hot yoga program…and I am complitely immersed in the reading.

    I wish Aura Wellness Center will create a program in Italian in future .

    Hi there, I received my certification in the mail last week. It made me feel good to have accomplished good grades- as well as being a certified teacher. I am more of a studious, serious person- so normally research and writing is not too hard for me- the DVD with performance as a teacher was more of a worry. Yet once I started the class, I forgot all about the person recording… I have been teaching Yoga classes for the last 3 years ( wintertime, small town, two classes a week). My desire is and always has been to help people.Yoga in this regard is just great. Stretching, breathing, meditation- just a wonderful approach to reduce physical , mental and emotional pain. To get better and feel connected people need “something” to believe in- so I also love the spiritual aspect. I am glad I chose Aura Wellness . It made it possible for me to learn from home – and it is affordable . ( I have a very busy life as a Massage Therapist, Herb Store owner, Grandma and wife ). So thanks , Aura Wellness, for making it possible ! Sabine

    Dear Paul and Aura staff members, I am very thankful to you all for opening the door for me towards becoming a Yoga teacher. Although I’ve been doing Yoga for a long time on my own, I haven’t fully understood this wonderful philosophy until I took your course. It really made me aware of the way the human body functions, the way it responds and reacts to different stimulus coming from the surrounding world. I understood the connection between body and mind, between emotions and physical well being. I’ve learned how to listen to my body and this is what I’m trying to teach to my students. Because it is not easy to look inside you and see and accept your weaknesses. And in my opinion this is the most important thing that Yoga does for you. But without a wonderful teacher and excellent guidance, it is very hard to understand all of this. Again, a big thank you to you and to your school. Have a wonderful summer and we will keep in touch (I am sure I still have a lot of questions for you!). Namaste, Ioana Bernacchi Certified Hatha Yoga Teacher

    Good morning, I tought my first yoga class last night!!!!!!! I hope I did ok I have received lots of positive feedback. I love people & yoga so I hope that love and light shines through everything. Not to mention that I had the best support from a distance from aura wellness centre & from Paul he always got back to me very promptly with any questions I had,thank you. I chose to study with Aura because I’m a full time stay at home mother to Raven who is 18months old and found that leaving her and my husband for a length of time would not suit our lifestyle so I decided to study correspondence as I live in New Zealand. This was the best way for me as I went at my own pace, I found a local yoga instructor who mentored me as well I highly recommend. I received my certificate a month ago and it was such an amazing feeling to have completed what I love to do. I am now teaching one evening a week at a local Pilates studio & loving it :). Thank you for all of your love and support. Namaste, Dana Preston

    I have just completed the Aura yoga instructors course. The course was recommended to me by Nighean Hardy who is one the best and most motivational yoga instructors in my area, she also completed the Aura course and has gone on to run an extremely successful yoga studio. I wanted a course that I could do in my own time and fit around my life, I did a lot of research on home learning courses and this one is by far one if the best. The books and DVD’s are extremely good quality and Dr.Paul is always on hand to answer any queries and questions, I had immediate replies to everything I asked. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who has practised yoga for at least a year and is looking to develop their skills and knowledge, either for themselves or to works as an instructor.

    I did my online Certification to become a Hatha Yoga Instructor through Aura Wellness Center and completed all the assignments by February 2013. From the very beginning a felt supported through the process. Aura always answered my questions in a timely and clear way. I received all materials in an orderly and timely way. Since my Certification I have been giving classes 3 times a week. At the beginning I was a bit nervous but I also felt I had acquire the knowledge to teach, answer questions and give explanations regarding alignment and other issues such as benefits of poses, etc. throughout the class. I will always be so grateful with Aura and Dr. Jerard for offering the online courses. It has changed my life in more than one way. I love teaching and hope to keep doing so for as long as I can and also hope to keep learning and reading more to deepen my knowledge of this incredible all-encompassing ancient practice. Thank you Dr. Jerard and the Aura Wellness Center Team. Namaste

    A year ago I successfully completed my hatha yoga training certification course. After exploring means to attain my certification , I chose the Aura Wellness Center for many reasons; affordability, self-paced study, and more importantly the supportive staff . Through the course of the year I gained so much knowledge. I developed a genuine rapport with Dr. Paul and his staff as they were willing to discuss and answer any questions as I progressed through the course work. They instilled in me a sense confidence and trust . I am most grateful for this educational opportunity. Completing this program reassured me that I was on the right path and that this yoga journey is endless. No doubt I will turn to your program for continued education.

    Dear Dr, Jerard, Mahatma Namaskara,

    I am forever grateful to you and your son, Paul, for your support, sage advise and guidance when I made the commitment to become a 65 year old Yogini! My students here in Colonial Heritage (an active seniors community in Williamsburg, Virginia), give purpose to my life as I guide them on their life long Yoga journey. I have witnessed the profound changes in the aging body that Yoga brings to seniors. Weekly, we celebrate how Yoga reverses the symptoms of aging, brings memory back to our connective tissues and brings union to the mind and body for a state of ease fullness.

    I wish to especially thank your son, Paul M. Jerard, III for giving me his undivided attention during the first phone call concerning Certification Training in 2011. His gentle and reassuring responses to my numerous questions confirmed in my heart that I had made the right decision. The course material for Hath Yoga is the ‘gold standard’ for Yoga certification training. The Aura Wellness Center keeps me anchored.

    Thank You with Namaste

    Love, Your Graduate, Linda Brown, RYT

    Hello Dr. Paul, I would like to express my thanks to you, Marie and the staff of Aura Wellness Center for your support and encouragement during my teacher training. The Yoga Teacher Training Camp in a Box was perfect for me. It enabled me to learn at my own pace in my own place. It provided a wealth of knowledge and I know it gave me the tools and confidence to be a successful yoga teacher. The program was thorough and any question was just an email away. I love the newsletter and the Facebook links. It’s like a mini lesson and gives me the opportunity to grow and learn everyday. I had thought the goal of becoming a certified yoga teacher was out of reach for me. This course made it possible for me to achieve a long time goal and for that I am truly grateful. I am proud to call myself an Aura Certified Yoga Teacher. In Gratitude, Susan Larock Certified Yoga Teacher

    I thoroughly enjoyed the process of becoming a certified yoga teacher.  The program that Aura Wellness offers not only delivers all the necessary fundamentals in a user friendly way, but allows you to progress at your own pace.  I had researched quite a few programs, and the cost and content of this course made the decision easy.  And Paul was always prompt in responding to my emails.  I highly encourage this program!

    Dear Paul and Marie, I do not have enough words to describe my gratefulness for the possibilities that your school offers. I started practicing yoga 8 years ago while I was living in Italy. Few years later I decided to become a yoga instructor as my friends started to ask me to organize classes for them. It was pretty difficult and very expensive to do an on site training over there, also because I have 3 kids and my “free” time revolves around them. Then I started to look up online yoga courses and every time I was trying to do a research, the first school that came up was yours. So I decided to sign up with Aura. I have to say this was one of the best decisions I have ever taken in my life. It literally changed my life! Not only through the benefits of yoga as a practice, but also through its social aspect. I did not have much friends before I started my classes, but soon after I created a big and very nice group of friends. After a couple of years I had to leave Italy and we moved to the the US. As soon as I got to my new place, I started organizing these classes and it happened again, got to meet lots of new people and many of them became friends, with me and between themselves. People ask me how long did it take me to settle in. My response is always “About a week!” Namaste…..have a wonderful day! Ioana Bernacchi Certified Yoga Instructor

    Dear Paul, Thank you for your support, openness and encouragement. Throughout the course I always felt I was not alone. The material, specifically the anatomy DVD and Cool Yoga Tricks are most useful and clear. It wasn’t easy but worth the time and effort. The certification gives me more confidence but at the same time more desire to continue learning. I highly recommend the courses. Namasté, Olga Luján Certified Yoga Instructor Guatemala

    I am a happy graduate of Aura Wellness Center Teacher Training. I appreciated the ability to work at my own pace since I was completing my teacher training in my free time, while working a full-time job. My questions were always answered promptly and thoroughly when I needed help. The selection of reading materials are extremely useful even after finishing the program and I find myself choosing to reread the books. One of my favorite parts of this program was the additional information on chakras and I find I apply this knowledge in all classes and with all clients. I highly recommend the Aura Wellness programs to anyone interested in completing a teacher training course. Jessica Lynn, H.C.

    Dear Dr. Paul Jerard, I just wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderful program that allows for a challenging and thorough opportunity to complete a full Yoga Teacher Training from abroad. I am an Army Wife, Mom to a very active toddler boy, and a part time dance educator. There are no Yoga teacher training programs in my area and your program gave me the chance to complete a longtime goal and I now can pursue something I love to do. Also, having such a variety of programs to choose from, I added on my Kid’s Yoga Teacher certification and I am THRILLED. Kids need yoga, just as much as adults and they truly love it. I am so grateful to you for everything. Also, my official certificates arrived last week and they are so beautiful, I will be having them framed. I hope to add a few more Aura Wellness Certifications in the next year or two. Namaste. Kindly, Lauren Cozza-Doody

    I have practiced yoga on a regular basis for over twenty five years. Before that I practiced the hard way, “every now and then,“ depending on which Navy ship I was on and what it happened to be doing at the time. After practicing regularly for about fifteen years I investigated various teacher training options to determine which program would give me the best foundation. The Aura Wellness Center program impressed me as being very well designed and professional. In addition, the fact that they encouraged contact and questions after training set them apart from most other programs that I investigated. I am one of the few yoga teachers, that I know, that has maintained contact with their teachers after the initial training and been able to receive on going guidance and help. I was certified by Aura in August of 2005. Since then I have expanded my knowledge and practice though training in stress management therapy, meditation and chair yoga. Aura’s re-certification program is another fantastic plus, because it insures that our teaching skills keep growing. The depth of my Aura training has giving me a good foundation on which to build a practice and handle a wide variety of challenges. The far majority of my classes are composed of students with widely different yoga experiences. Frequently there is every thing from the first timer to the seasoned yogi. My Aura training has been invaluable in helping me cope with the needs of the newbie without boring the yogis to death. The ability to adapt, very often, gets stretched to its limits when I teach for a non profit organization called Connected Warriors. They offer free yoga classes to active duty military, veterans and the families. The students range from Korean war to Iraq and Afghanistan vets plus their families. Some students are agile and in perfect health, many others are physically restricted or disabled. My Aura training has been invaluable in guiding my efforts to accommodate their needs. On more than one occasion I have had several students practicing chair yoga while the guiding the rest of the class on their mats. There is an old saying, “Only Time Will Tell”. I think in this case “Time” has clearly spoken and is saying that the Aura Wellness program provide a rock solid foundation on which to build a successful yoga teaching practice. The teaching quality of the Aura Wellness graduates speaks for it’s self and may be the greatest testimonial that any of us can provide. Namaste, Jim McGlynn

    This is my story on how I came to Aura Wellness! My Yoga journey started at a very young age, as a student. When I felt called to teach I began looking around my own town, Phoenix Arizona for a school . I searched school after school to no avail – the instructors seemed disconnected from the roots of Yoga that I was interested in learning. I wanted not only to be proficient in the asana’s (yoga postures) for myself and those I would come to teach – but I wanted to understand what Yoga truly is; in it’s wholeness. As I began searching the internet for schools I came across Aura Wellness. I called, Dr Paul Jerard happen to answer the phone that day, there was something about the tone and vibration in his voice that let me know I was in the midst of a true master, I could hear the Divinity. I knew that I would learn technique as well as the philosophy. I knew I no longer needed to search for another school. I knew I found the right place. Aura Wellness far exceeded the expectation I was searching for to become a teacher. I renewed my spirit through this school. I teach every week and have many students relay to me how their health has improved through my Yoga class. Thanks to Dr. Paul Jerard and his school I have been able to bring the benefits of Yoga to those seeking to improve their quality of life. Namaste, Malinda Hurd

    Aura Wellness Centre put me on a road to discovering more about Yoga through the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, after delving into Yoga for many years completing some short courses which the lead me to realise I would love to share the inspiration, clarity, joy & balance that Yoga practices can bring to our lives, and being in rural Western Australia farming with my husband and my 3 young children a intensive on campus Teacher Training was not something I could commit to, but Aura Wellness offer a comprehensive, supportive yoga community and with the guidance of Dr Paul Jerad that can be studied from home. I began to learn more, along with attending local classes and doing many weekend workshops discovering & adding more to my studies I could then grow deeper in my knowledge and practice I competed my Hatha Teacher Training with Honours from Aura Wellness Centre. I feel so grateful for the blessing of teaching Yoga to the community around me; I have a beautiful growing group of Yoga students who join me weekly for group & private classes. I also teach Yoga as a part of my work in Mental Health Recovery my training as a Yoga teacher has given me the opportunity & tools to be able to share the amazing effects on the body, mind & soul balance with my clients through the breath work, physical practice & meditation. Teaching Yoga continues to be a journey in finding my authentic voice as a teacher; my studies of Yoga have enlightened me to the belief that a strong personal practice of the 8 limbs of Yoga will serve you in so many ways when you teach to others. I teach always from my heart, with the elements & energies of the seasons in mind, my personal Yoga practice is for my Students & I teach my Yoga Classes for the deep love of Yoga & for myself, through a regular disciplined & dedicated personal Yoga experience, I can share from a place of honesty with my students and my classes are taught with attention & love. Warmly & with Gratitude Jen

Thank you so much for offering a Home Study course for those of us who find the cost and the distance to an ashram a real hassle.

    I was and i am happy that i found these school “Aura Wellness Center” as a great option to study and get know more technical and deeper knowledge about Hatha Yoga and lead me further to become Hatha Yoga teacher. My biggest affirmation/confirmation that the studies went well and smoothly – is my lovely yogis and that they come to my classes and enjoy their yoga journey with me together. About study/learning process i can say the best words to Dr. Paul Jerard – very helpful at the studies and response was active and never got the feeling that i am left alone with my study materials just to do something.

    The Aura Wellness team is incredible. The program that they’ve put together is complete and very clear. I appreciated the suggested syllabus as it gave me the added direction and support I needed to approach my training. Even though I never met the team, the way the course was built and organised made me feel supported and on track 100% of the time. The content is rich, easy to follow and immersive. The value I’ve gained as an individual is priceless; I feel equipped to fly with my own wings and share YOGA with the world. I’ll definitely take another course to continue deepening my practice. The Chakra section was particularly powerful for me as it created a framework through which I was able to study, explore and self-reflect. It literally transformed my life! Thank you for this huge gift as I wouldn’t have been able to do this, had I had to spend 3 months away from my young daughter.

    I am very happy with my Yoga course in a box I took. The videos were very clear and easy to comprehend. The course materials were very informative also. I loved that I had to do a practical exam on video to prove my safe and correct alignments. I am very happy with my yoga certification through Aura Wellness and can’t wait to start my new career.

    As a fitness instructor and specializing in senior movement, I felt the instruction materials that Aura Wellness provided for my 300 hour Hatha Yoga certification were exceptional. The variety of learning materials covering the philosophy, anatomy, alignment and history helped me to have a better understanding of Yoga and not just a focus on the poses. I feel confident in using what I learned to teach others. Thank you Aura Wellness Center for a great educational experience.
