    The flexibility to self pace learning tasks meant that I never felt rushed and could study around my other commitments, it was the perfect fit.

    Harriet Smith

    "I had wanted to undertake a yoga teacher training course for a number of years, to further my own practice and to begin the journey of teaching as a way to help others. Moving frequently whilst undertaking work and additional study meant I could never commit to an intensive studio program. At Aura Wellness, the flexibility to self pace learning tasks meant that I never felt rushed and could study around my other commitments, it was the perfect fit.

    The program itself is holistic, detailed and varied. By using a combination of books, videos and online tools I was able to gain confident in developing my unique practice as a teacher. I never felt isolated during my journey, the community at Aura wellness were always available to answer questions and give feedback. The resources are modern, easy to understand and I will continue to reference them on my journey as a new teacher.

    I highly recommend ❤️ Aura Wellness Center

    The course was very clearly laid out and very professional

    Kira Earl

    I got into Yoga a few years ago to help close the abdominal gap that I had from having my babies. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with yoga and dedicate more time to my practice. A couple years into my practice I got asked to come and volunteer teach at a local church, and then a Studio. I then fell in love with teaching and helping women feel good about their bodies. With 3 kids, and the closest yoga teaching courses being over 3 hours away, my options for getting certified were very limited. Aura Wellness Center was just what I was looking for. I chose the 250 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Program. The course was very clearly laid out and very professional. Dr. Paul Jerard was available to answer my questions in a timely matter and gave answers that were clear and professional. I am so grateful to be apart of the Yoga teaching community and loved that I could take a course while still being a Mom and Wife! I highly recommend Aura Wellness Center if your looking for a way to become certified.

    I received more books in my training than my friend who enrolled in a $3000 dollar in studio training

    Andre Humphrey

    Aura Wellness teacher program met and exceeded all expectations. The training was affordable, flexible and very informative. I received more books in my training than my friend who enrolled in a $3000 dollar in studio training ( she had to buy her own books). I am very thankful that I found this affordable online teacher training. I would recommend Aura’s teacher training program to all my friend and family interested in walking the healing path.

    I am delighted to have completed a 250 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training course. As a musician I travel a lot and it is difficult for me to attend regular classes on a daily basis. This course was very helpful for me because I could travel with the books and DVD’s provided and I was able to do my own Yoga practice whether I was at home or abroad. This online course is ideal for anyone who doesn’t have regular a set routine and who travels a lot like me. I have learned so much these past 12 months. Aura Wellness center have always been there at the other end of the phone or just an email away. Their support has been amazing. Thank you Dr. Paul Jerard. I’m so excited to teach now!

    I highly recommend Aura Wellness Center for obtaining your certification as a yoga instructor. I am vary wary about what I invest in , but this course was well worth my time and finance. As a full time mom working at a full time job I was able to complete the Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training course conveniently . The course doesn’t leave out any details on what you should know about being an instructor, I completed it feeling knowledgeable and confident enough to handle my first yoga class. Thank you Dr. Paul Jerard!

    I began a home yoga practice over ten years ago. I’ve always wanted to study deeper and looked to teacher training as a means of deepening my knowledge. As a work at home mother, I found the time commitment a bit conflicting with my schedule. I began researching alternative methods to obtain my certification. It was during this time that I was practicing alongside The Bad Yogi via her YouTube channel. It was through her blog that I found Aura! She had studied under this program and I figured I would give it a go! The course materials were delivered quickly and I was able to dive right in! I tried my best to stick with the 12 week syllabus, but life got in the way. There was no pressure to confine my studies in that 12 week breakdown! It was there only to serve as a guide and the staff was very kind when it came to answering questions and providing guidance! I loved studying under Dr. Jerard and his program. I would definitely recommend Aura to friends and family looking to pursue a yoga certification.

    Dear Paul and Yoga Crew, Thank you all so much for your support and for your help during my Vinyasa Yoga Certification Course! Being a member of Aura Wellness Center is such an honor for me. I have to confess that i enjoyed every moment of this wonderful journey!!! I learned so many things through the literature, and videos. I felt myself like a sponge, soaking up the philosophy, anatomy, pranayama, and posturing. Discovering the benefits of Yoga, and personally experiencing the benefits in my daily life was tremendous. Yoga for me its not just the teaching part, its a way of thinking, a way of leaving, a way of loving and sharing love with others but also helping people. Helping people and see results its such a great thing such a great feeling. Sharing the benefits of Yoga with others its a great thing believe me. Before i start this course i had no idea of how it would be and how it will be the whole experience. By starting it and realizing how helpful everybody is and how quickly they answer to your questions it really made me love no no adore this Yoga Study of mine!!! I had my baby girl almost in the middle of my course but honestly nothing stopped me!!! When the baby was sleeping i had my books and laptop ready …. such a wonderful experience. An experience that i will never regret. Practicing my postures daily i have seen great results, my body started to change and that helped me getting deeper in my postures. I highly recommend Aura Wellness Center to anyone who wants to get deeper into the Vinyasa Yoga Path. Believe me you will never be alone during your course, lots of people will be by your side any time for any question or any doubt. And only during your course, these people will be by your side always!!! NAMASTE Naso Mennoyiati Cyprus VINYASA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING GRADUATE

    Being a busy mother, teaching dance, working as a dietician and being involved in community events made it extremely hard for me to find a Yoga course that would help me to get my certification here in the US. There is a saying which goes “when you are ready the Guru comes to you” as I was looking at different websites Aura Wellness caught my attention–that’s when my journey started— I was a little skeptical about correspondence course and reluctantly looked at the contents posted on the web site and talked to associates in the customer service and the teachers. I was truly impressed with their patience in explaining on how the whole process works and were very kind and supportive throughout the whole process. The whole curriculum is very well laid out and they have done an excellent job in selecting the right text books in all areas of Yoga-techniques, Science and philosophy. I just enjoyed reading the materials as it was very straightforward and authentic. After my initiation from my yoga guru in India-Dr. Raghavendra Guruji I felt his presence as I went through this whole process assimilating information from the Vinyasa curriculum and this unforgettable process has helped me to dig deeper in the path of self realization. Dr. Jerard and the associates at Aura wellness are very professional, knowledgeable and guided me in the right path and responded to any queries big-or small in a very timely manner. I am very pleased with their services and I hope to continue my path through courses offered at Aura wellness. I would have loved to teach and serve if the Center was located here in Birmingham, Alabama.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed studying with Aura Wellness Centre for the second time. I look forward to deepening my understanding of yoga through the questions and resources. As a teacher I find the study enhances my practice and teaching skills. I can study at my convenience. As a mother, a part time school teacher and yoga teacher I can fit my study around my other commitments. The given time frame to complete tasks is achievable so that study becomes a pleasure not a chore. The feedback and assistance from Aura staff is excellent. I have found them supportive, experienced and highly professional. I enjoy the weekly Facebook articles and find them very useful to share with students, parents and fellow staff members. I have recommended this online study to many students who wish to take their yoga practice to the next step. Thank you again, for helping me to continue this amazing journey that is yoga.

    I have always wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a certified yoga teacher, but when I became a mother and simultaneously moved to a rural area, I was doubtful that there’d be a workable way for me to complete a quality program. After researching my options, I felt that Aura Wellness Center offered a flexible, affordable and, most importantly, rigorous program. From start to finish my experience was all positive! The materials were varied and thorough with an exceptional balance of traditional, academic and practical sources. The staff was always responsive, kind and helpful and I received targeted and useful feedback throughout the process. I highly recommend this program to all people interested in becoming a certified yoga instructor – especially if you need flexibility but don’t want to sacrifice quality! You won’t regret it!

    I first want to say “Thank you, Thank you”. Would like to share my experience with Aura Wellness teacher training. This training program has everything and more to help you with the journey of becoming a yoga instructor. I am so thankful for this program. It allowed me to do this at my own pace, and Dr Paul Jared and Marie always responded to any questions that I had and also were very patient and encouraging. Practicing several times a week with various styles and various teachers, along with this program I felt well prepared to begin teaching yoga. The information that Dr Paul Jared shares is the very best and so informative. I look forward to the weekly newsletter that has so much valuable information, and videos, from breathing techniques, philosophy, poses and sequencing that I always refer to. The information and materials are the best. I would highly recommend this teacher training program. I have studied martial arts for over 17 years, (Isshinryu Karate). I am a 4th degree black belt and began practicing yoga to enhance my martial arts, but as I began to really feel the affects of yoga, I had a shift and now martial arts enhances my yoga. There are a lot of similarities to the two types of arts, always encouraging balance with body, mind and spirit. I can only say taking this course was a life changing decision and am very thankful I took training from Aura Wellness Center and look forward to growing with all the valuable information that is shared with students. Growth Continues Peace Patricia Reo

    I just completed my Vinyasa Teacher Training course with Aura Wellness Center. Before signing up I researched the many online and local “brick and mortar” possibilities, and for some instinctual reason I kept radiating back to Aura! I can say with full confidence that it was the best choice. Before signing up, Dr. Paul Jerard patiently answered all my questions. That alone gave me the confidence that the course would be an interactive course and not the usual online experience. In fact in many ways I felt like Aura was “just around the corner.” The course work was challenging and applicable yet covered a wide range of yoga history and techniques. Whenever I had a question I would email Paul and he would respond to my concerns right away.​ I think the most appealing aspect of Aura is that you feel your are right there with the instructor. A direct line. And best of all reading the newsletter was a grounding element to the learning process, always challenging new yoga theory and movement in today’s world.​ I hope to take more courses in the future. My yoga practice has been enriched by this experience and I feel compelled to share what I have learned with others and now I have the credentials to achieve this. Thank you Aura Wellness! ​Peace to you Paul and the whole staff! Jill​

    It was great to find a Yoga Certification class that I could do on my own schedule. Traveling a weekend a month with 5 kids was never an option. I have been doing Yoga for 19 years and I am so grateful that I now have a certification to teach. I am an Occupational Therapist and have a good background in anatomy and biomechanics. I have always used Yoga poses in my practice. Now teaching to a group is such a positive experience

    Dear Paul, I want to thank you for all your support and understanding during my education. Without your Aura Teachers Training I could never fulfill my dreams to work as a certified Yota Teacher, I leave in small village in Bosnia and Hercegovina, and have no opportunity to go through teacherers training anywere close. I was really uncertain about completion of the exams, but you had faith in me and that helped me a lot in my self esteem and motivation to complete what I wish with all my heart. What I like the most abut you and Aura Yoga is that even now when I finished the training, I feel that I can still turn to you for any help I need, or any issues or question I have. It give me great support in my further work to have someone I can turn to. As soon as I set up my practice and establish the routine, my plan is to take the next step in my education with Aura Wellness Center – Yoga Therapy. Namaste, Sandra Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

    Traveling to get certified is out of the question for me as a mom of two young children so I very much appreciate that Dr. Jerard made this Vinyasa certification available as a home study. At the time of my order I had to email customer service and I heard back immediately. They quickly and efficiently resolved my problem. All my materials arrived quickly and in great condition. From the beginning it was very clear that Dr. Jerard was available if I ever needed him. I did email him at the end of my course and his response was immediate. It was nice to know that there really was someone on the other end who did care. Aura provides a lot of online resources and really great and useful articles. The course had a good balance of materials. There is a lot of reading but you’re also given a dvd, music cd and an anatomy dvd, which I have to say was my favorite part of the entire course. I will definitely be doing another course with them again. Kim S.

    Dr. Paul Jerard is a fabulous instructor who will take you gently to new dimensions as you blossom into a yoga teacher. The materials provided for the class were of the highest quality and value and I never imagined I would learn so much about the philosophy and spirituality of yoga; in fact the materials were so enjoyable I lost myself in the content for hours on end. Dr. Jerard was extremely accessible and responsive to all of my questions and is a wonderfully insightful Yoga teacher, navigating students through a deeply spiritual experience. His demeanor is gentle, his practice challenging and I would highly recommend Dr. Jerard and Aura Wellness Center to anyone interested in becoming a yoga teacher. Courtney Jared Bannan, Esq.

    Participating in the Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training program was a very positive and powerful experience for me. I learned so much during my program and gained confidence in my personal yoga understanding as well as in my yoga instruction. I have been a yoga student for 20 years, and I feel so privileged to have been able to participate in the teacher training from Aura Wellness Center. I feel my overall breadth of knowledge was broadened during my course; allowing me to strengthen all aspects of my yoga experience. The faculty and support staff were very helpful and accommodating throughout the program as well. I would definitely recommend Aura Wellness Center to anyone who feels guided into a Yoga Teacher Training program. Kristy M. Ayala, M.A.

    Thank you Paul and Aura wellness center for creating a thorough, enjoyable, achievable, yoga teacher training course. As a mother, teacher, performer and wife this was an ideal way to stimulate my senses, gain further knowledge and attain certification. I have completed several intensive yoga courses and short teacher training courses, all great, however, I still felt I required more knowledge to teach adults. I became addicted to getting up early practising yoga and reading the notes, answering the questions and working my way through the course. So addicted that when it was over I wanted to sign up for another course. My wise husband suggested I take some time to just reflect, teach and practise. I am continuing on my daily knowledge quest / spiritual journey and personal yoga practise and feel the course has given me the foundation I needed to confidently teach children, adults and yoga for special needs. This course gave me the faith that I do know what to do and how to do it. I have also accepted that I don’t have all the answers and that is fine. I will do my best to teach from the heart and help others feel good through yoga. A yoga teacher said to me, “It is a privilege to be a yoga teacher”. I now totally understand her quote and am grateful to be doing what I love. I look forward to some further study in the future. Thank you, Namaste Tara. Australia

    Dear Paul, So happy that today “finally” received your letter with my certified diploma. The moment when opened the envolope and saw the diploma in front of my eyes is truly one of the best and precious moments in my life. That sense of accomplishment felt really good with peace. For a 51 years “old” man with less than 10 years of Yoga experiences, it is motivating. Longing to teach Yoga is one of my own ways of practicing compassion. Having this diploma gives me really confidence as well as the responsibility to be a genuie Boddichitta warrior. From now on I can teach Vinyasa Yoga with integrity, honesty, confidence, compassion, and most of all, how to guide the students to practice Yoga safely. When looking back, it took me 21 months to complete it. On top of my full-time job which is nothing to do with Yoga, my weekly life was packed with three corporate Yoga classes, one private Yoga class at home, and the family obligations. To find the time left for studing and preparing this course was really challenging. Eventually is the will power helped me go through all the obstacles. Would like to thank Paul for his genuie compassion to allow me extend several months, after being stayed in the hospital twice. His professional advices were always clear, encouraging, and full with wisdom. The books and DVDs for the course are well selected. Never underestimated the time and efforts to go though all the studies and prepare for the written exams, essay, and practical exam. It fills up also any missing knowledge and tools to teach Vinyasa Yoga. To my personal situation, the anatomy books and DVDs gave a great insights on how to pay great attentions on aligments, teach safely, and not to judge on any indivdual students, because no two individuals on the planet have the same skeletonal structures. I highly recommend this course to any exprerienced yogis who intend to be certified as a Vinyasa Yoga Teacher, but do not have the time or budget to spend on intensive onsite and/or expensive courses. Nederless to say, you do have more flexibility to decide when to study, but that in return that is also where the most challenging part – self displine and motivation. Sat Nam. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Terence Sho-Liang Hsu Certified AURA Vinyasa Yoga Teacher 2012
