FIVE Special Bonuses (Valued at $221.95):

AT NO EXTRA CHARGE, you will receive all five of the following bonuses:

1. Our Yoga business starter manual: “How to Grow Your Own Successful Yoga Business.” This comprehensive resource, valued at $147, contains all the vital information you need to start, run, and grow your own profitable Yoga business.

Most Yoga teacher training camps will teach you what you need to know to become a Certified Yoga Instructor, but won’t say a word about how to operate your own business. Our Yoga business starter manual will reveal all the “behind the scenes” secrets that will put your Yoga practice on the fast track to success.

2. You’ll also receive Aura Wellness Center’s “Yogic Relaxation CD” a $15.95 value, for personal use and a handy learning tool. When you first listen to this CD, you will feel very relaxed. This is the initial purpose, but since you will be teaching guided relaxation and meditation, as part of your Yoga classes, you can also use this CD to improve your cueing skills.

After regular practice with this CD, you will also develop your own cueing techniques when guiding friends, family, and your students through a relaxation sequence or meditation.

3. Additionally, you’ll get the 105 page Aura Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Manual in PDF (e-Book) format.

4. To round out your business knowledge, the 47 minute DVD “Yoga Business Secrets” is included. This information is valuable to a Yoga Teacher whether you decide to become a independent contractor or a studio owner.

5. Lastly, you’ll also receive Yoga Marketing 101, a DVD that gives you enough marketing strategies to earn $50,000 to $100,000 per year. It’s unfortunate that many excellent Yoga Teachers and Yoga Masters don’t know how to market their Yoga studios. Instead of a happy and rewarding Yoga lifestyle, they scratch out an existence. You don’t have to!

Plus FOUR Additional Special Bonuses (At No Additional Charge):

  • [Platinum/Gold Bonus] “So You Want to Teach Yoga,” by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, is an e-Book which exposes the secrets behind teaching Yoga. Learn how to protect your teaching practice, the most common student corrections, how to get into the corporate market place, assisting tips, how to retain students longer, and much more.
  • [Platinum/Gold Bonus] “Yoga Business Secrets,” by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, is an e-Book packed with information based upon conversations with hundreds of Yoga teachers. Just one constructive idea from this e-book may earn, or save, your Yoga teaching service thousands of dollars. This book will give you hundreds of ideas to put into practice.
  • [Platinum Bonus] “Sure Fire Yoga Marketing Secrets,” by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500. This 60 page e-Book can be used as a work book to help you develop your Yoga teaching practice. Learn how to grow your local enrollment and how to develop niches within your Yoga teacher services.

    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.

    Agata Konecka/Baller

    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 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 {}. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity to share this path to peace. Namaste’ Shelly Werts Licensed Clinical Social Worker Certified Yoga Teacher Healing, Recovery, and Compassion Yoga

    “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

    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

    Michelle Cromwell

    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

    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!

    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 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!

    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

    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’

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    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!

    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

    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

    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 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 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
