MyVinyasaPractice: A Student Review
There is a lot to be said about MyVinyasaPractice. Let's start with
1) MyVinyasaPractice has one hell of a marketing team
For the above
Since we originally started our review of MyVinyasaPractice, Michelle Young has dramatically changed her site, her program and her offerings. While she originally came across as mostly genuine, she has since revealed her true colors, and has caved in to the temptation of turning her teacher training into a total money chase and matching her competitors (Yoga Renew and Aura Wellness) marketing ploys with pop-up coupons on her website like this:
This online yoga teacher training may be perfect for you if you are not very interested in asana practice. This training is especially suitable for those interested in moving towards yoga therapy, although if you intend to take a yoga therapist training in the future, you will definitely want to check and make sure they accept the online MyVinyasaPractice training as a prerequisite. The International Association of Yoga Therapists is the only board that "certifies" yoga therapists, which is a bit of a joke and another blog. But, I would check their site to make sure MyVinyasaPractice will work for you.
The Pros of MyVinyasa Practice: Review of a Student Who Has Taken the Training
PriceThe pricing is not outlandish. MyVinyasaPractice has dropped their tuition rates tremendously since we began reviewing online yoga teacher training a year ago. Currently, it is
MyVinyasaPractice uses teachable. You can access the course from anywhere and the software is easy to use.
Not Much Content
Lead Trainer and Director of Online Program is Stretched Too ThinWe have a few reservations about this yoga teacher training online program. The owner seems to be stretched too thin, and we question the level of support she can offer you as an online student. She has a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in person and a 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in person in session. She has more scheduled, and is no doubt busting her hiney to get those filled.
In addition to the two in person trainings that she has rolling almost year round, she also has international trainings and retreats that she is working to book. Currently, there are retreats available in Ireland, Israel and Paris for yogis to join Michelle:
Jack of All Trades, Master of None
I can't say that I didn't enjoy the training at all. It was ok, but just ok. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 6.5. Overall, I'm not overly impressed with MyVinyasaPractice. It isn't the best in any category. Not the best information in the content, not the best value for your money, not the best customer service, not the most professional, not the quickest route to certification, not a community feel, not the best support.... you get it. It was ok.
