Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to the Questions We Get Asked the Most

How do I register?

Select your desired YTT program, choose your payment option, and submit your tuition payment. Once you have submitted payment you are registered for the course. You have the option of paying with either a deposit or paying in full. If you choose a deposit, you will be set up with an affordable payment plan.

What if I no longer need a payment plan?

My Vinyasa Practice believes that the information learned in Yoga Teacher Training should be more readily available to those looking to deepen their practice. That said, we are open to working with potential students to create payment plans that work for them.

Reach out to Michelle at:

Will I learn Sanskrit, manta, and hands-on assisting?
Yes! We will learn all of the components of Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and Yin Yoga including Sanskrit names for poses, historical origins, and variations in style. We will also be learning sequencing, assisting, pose/counter pose, ethics, and business.
I am outside of the United States. Can I still participate in the program and teach outside of the United States?
Yes! We work with students from around the world and, after completing this program and becoming certified through My Vinyasa Practice, you will be eligible to teacher wherever you are.
I want to start my yoga journey now. Can I begin anytime?
Yes! Register for one of our online trainings today and receive everything you need to get started.
Can I go through YTT even if I don't want to teach?
Absolutely! We created this content with both teachers and practitioners in mind. We believe yogic teachings should be accessible and affordable to anyone looking to deepen their practice.
If I want in-person mentor teacher support will you provide me with someone to work with locally?
Yes! We are able to find you a mentor teacher who will work with you in conjunction with local studios near you if this is something you would like. Some students do not want a mentor teacher so we leave the decision to the student.
I want to be a Certified Yoga Instructor. Will this course help me achieve this goal?
The term “Certified Yoga Instructor” is not a term used in the yoga industry. The appropriate term is Registered Yoga Teacher. There are many registries in the United States and Internationally. After completing training through My Vinyasa Practice you willl be given certification and eligible to teach around the world.
What is Yoga Alliance?
Yoga Alliance is a non-profit organization that sets standards for Yoga Teacher Training. It is not required for anyone to register with Yoga Alliance to teach yoga. Yoga Alliance is a registry and does not certify students to teach yoga. The yoga school in which the student trains certififes them.
Is My Vinyasa Practice registered with Yoga Alliance?
Both our in person 200 Hour and our in person 300 Hour trainings are registered with Yoga Alliance. My Vinyasa Practice’s Online Continuing Education courses count toward non-contact CEUs with Yoga Alliance.

Yoga Alliance does not register online schools; however, My Vinyasa Practice does not only meet the current standards of Yoga Alliance, but they surpass the standards in the areas of philosophy, sequencing, and special populations.

Continuing Education Courses are online. Are they Yoga Alliance approved?
Yes! Our Continuing Education courses are registered with Yoga Alliance and count toward noncontact hour CEUs.
Can I register with Yoga Alliance after completing online training?

Registration with Yoga Alliance is optional and not required to teach yoga. Yoga Alliance is professional registry not a certifying body. Currently Yoga Alliance does not accept online training of any kind as a route to registration. In order to regiseter with Yoga Allaince teachers must complete in person training. Teachers who are looking to register initially at the 200 hour level would need to have 160 in person training hours in conjunction with the online training to register at the 200 hour level. Students looking to upgrade their registration to the 500 hour level would need to complete 260 in person training hours in conjunction with the online training to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500 hour teacher.


My Vinyasa practice offers in person training in Austin, TX and in Oklahoma City. We also offer intensive trainings abroad. Our next intensive training is in Greece July 3, 2020 through July 19th. All online participants interested in completing in person hours receive a $1,500 credit towards any intesive retreats or recieve 50% off in person trainings in Austin or Oklahoma.

Do I need to register with Yoga Alliance to teach yoga?
No. Yoga Alliance is one registry among many in the country and the world. The YTT school certifies students to teach yoga and registration with Yoga Alliance, or any registry, is not required to teach yoga. In fact, we have not had any online students struggle to find employment without registration. You will still leave training feeling confident and able to teach with an in-depth knowledge of yoga philosophy, asana, techniques, and more.
