Yes. This course is also appropriate for you because of pandemic COVID-19.
If you want to work as a yoga teacher, the majority of schools will need you to have completed an onsite teacher training with an instructor. Most of the schools in the USA and Canada also prefer teachers registered with Yoga Alliance.
To register as RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance you need to follow a course with at least 170 contact hours. Generally an online course can not provide you that. But due to COVID-19, Yoga Alliance is treating our online course as a contact hour course. So you can register as RYT 200 after completing this course. According to the Yoga Alliance, this provision will be in effect as long as the outbreak continues.
If you still prefer to do a contact hour course, we suggest you check at our Onsite teacher training.

Meet Your Teacher
(ERYT-500 & YACEP with 22 years, 40,000+ hours of teaching experience)
I am thankful for the gift of yoga in my life. I've been helping people transform their lives with the science of yoga, and discover the life-changing gift of yoga for themselves for over two decades.
Born into a family where yoga has been the way of life since five generations, my formal yoga journey began aged eight at a Vedic school in India. I was trained in the tradition of Swami Sivananda. I received a solid foundation in scriptures, including Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, and Yoga Sutras (to name a few).
I see yoga as a way to master the five senses, so I named the ashram 'Arhanta Yoga,' the yoga to master the five senses!
This passion to help others succeed drives all of us at Arhanta.
At Arhanta, we don't just teach yoga. We teach you how to reach your potential, develop your skills, confidence, and take control of your life.
