As a yogi of over a decade, becoming a yoga teacher had been a dream of mine for a long time. After doing my homework into the various teacher training options that were available in my community, I can honestly say that Aura Wellness Center provides one of the most comprehensive and well-rounded programs that I’ve come across in all of my years of practicing yoga. Dr. Jerard is a wealth of knowledge and is always available to his students. I truly felt like I was a part of a greater community during my teacher training with Aura Wellness Center and would recommend this phenomenal program to anyone that is considering becoming a certified yoga teacher.
At the end of this program, you will walk away with a more thorough foundation of the practice of yoga (including its rich history) than any of the YTT graduates in your neighboring studios. Take it from someone who has almost exclusively practiced in corporate, “big city” studios- this program is different, and for the better. Far too often, studios become teacher mills cranking out teacher after teacher without establishing the proper framework for teaching yoga. Aura Wellness Center is different in that this program allows you the time to really dive into the practice of yoga, including in-depth lessons into anatomy, the philosophical approaches to yoga, and even Sanskrit terminology.
Registering and graduating from Aura Wellness Center’s teacher training program was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself, and I feel privileged to have received my certification from this incredible organization. Thank you for teaching me how to share the practice that has brought so much light and love into my own life with those around me, and for helping me fulfill a life-long dream!
