→ NO PAPERWORK
→ NO PAPERWORK
Other online yoga teacher trainings transfer the administrative burden of certification over to YOU.
You’ll be tracking each of your 200 hours in a spreadsheet and submitting dozens of forms to orchestrate your own graduation.
At Uplifted YTT, we’ve streamlined everything.
Focus on your inner transformation. Certify within 4 months of your first Live Call.
→ 96% GRADUATION RATE
→ 96% GRADUATION RATE
Most online yoga certification programs don’t actually expect you’ll graduate.
The goal is for you to buy on impulse, because it’s cheap, and then never follow through.
At Uplifted YTT, you progress with the same students each week in a 4-month transformational journey.
Consistency in your trainers and peer group keeps you motivated and accountable from Day 1 to celebrating your graduation, just like an in-person training.

Who is the teacher behind other online programs you’re exploring?
Do they empower grads to run a profitable yoga business?
Uplifted is the only YTT that includes modules on how to succeed as a certified yoga teacher in the digital age.
Don’t believe me? Find one of my 3,000+ successful graduates on social media and ask them! This YTT goes behind the scenes into my hard-won business strategies as a 7-figure earning yoga teacher.
The caliber of students Brett attracts is world-class. I never want our YTT live calls to end. This isn’t your typical virtual training – Brett has truly created a studio experience online.
Thrilled I finally found a high-quality online teacher training. This was more insightful than any of my previous trainings as an exercise professional.
My first in-person training was not as in-depth with posture alignment and cueing. My knowledge base and learning experience from this course has increased my self confidence immensely.
I’ve done both a local in-person YTT and Brett’s online YTT. Brett’s has an AMAZING module on how to GET yoga teaching jobs as well as how to teach online (very unique portion of YTT). I can’t recommend the training highly enough. Brett Larkin is truly revolutionizing the online YTT experience.
I took a YTT training previously, but didn’t have the confidence to convey anything about yoga to anyone. From day one, Brett builds your confidence and gets you out of your head. She gives you all her tools!
I was skeptical about learning to teach yoga online, but when I filmed my practicum, I felt prepared and like I was a REAL yoga teacher! This is the real deal!

choose Uplifted to deepen their practice
Because I didn’t think I wanted to teach, I was nervous that I wouldn’t be good enough for the course. I was so wrong! This sounds cheesy, but this course actually changed my life. It helped shift my mindset, build my confidence, take risks in my life, and generally start making decisions that align with who I am inside (not just what other people expect of me). I’m so proud of the person that this course has helped me grow into.
This training SO exceeded my expectations. Compared to other yoga teachers I know, we covered WAY MORE. I loved all the extras: the subtle body information, ayurveda, the MFR stuff, Yin, restorative, Prenatal!! Individuality is so highly valued. You will be transformed!
Coming into this course, I was fearful that I wouldn’t be enough. “Who would want to take yoga from me? I don’t know anything.” After the course, I have a newfound confidence in my abilities to be a conductor for sacred lineages to flow through me. I have been wanting to teach yoga for years. I am filled with tears of joy finding what feels like my niche in this life.
I was concerned about it being fully online. However, Brett really exceeded my expectations on what she delivers. (And she had set pretty high expectations with her YTT information session!) Having completed the training, I truly believe I would not have gotten this much value out of any of the in-person trainings in my area. I know the videos and comprehensive manual will be an asset for years to come.
I‘m really grateful I did my YTT online with Brett. It brought a clarity to what’s important for the poses, and why, with more examples than I could have gotten with an in-person YTT. That alone transformed my relationship to yoga. Brett’s passion for yoga philosophy and meeting people where they are created a warm, deeply sensible way of relating. I now have the confidence to really help others too.
I signed up for the training just to deepen my own practice but throughout the course, I realized that I actually want to share this knowledge with others. The amount of information within this course can satisfy my yoga nerdiness for a lifetime…I can’t wait to delve deeper and share this life-changing practice with the world!

In addition to flexibility, one major benefit to training online is you have lifetime access to the material. Go back and review it several times during the training or several years later. Another is that we have a very diverse group, and it’s awesome to see the different perspectives. Also, Brett is amazing! I think it’s really important to really know and believe in the person doing your training.
I’m very happy I will always have all of the video content to rewatch and keep it fresh in my mind. I also loved how much Brett equipped us with a business mindset. I feel SO equipped and excited to go out and teach!
I’ve been practicing for 10+ years, and was concerned that an online training wouldn’t be as effective as an in-person. I’m so glad that I trusted my gut and intuition and registered for this training with Brett. It has been life-changing. So empowering. This is a high quality program that is very in-depth.
I was nervous about doing an online YTT. How would I ask questions? How would they check if my posture is correct or if I am teaching the asanas correctly? It has been a delightful surprise to have been able to finish this YTT with an incredible amount of knowledge, a new found sense of self-esteem and great new friends. Not only does Brett and company do an amazing job at teaching asanas, pranayama, the sutras and anatomy, but the wealth of knowledge she shares on how to start teaching and create your business is phenomenal.
I was nervous about the training being online, but you do not have to be afraid. I never would have been able to accumulate all the content if the training would have been in-person. The videos on the poses and taking pictures of your poses and having them looked at in Live Calls was invaluable. I’m an avid student and my needs were more than met by this training.
A GUIDED, INTIMATE, & HIGHLY-STRUCTURED ONLINE YOGA CERTIFICATION
Uplifted’s PROPRIETARY METHOD
Transform Beyond the Mat
Don’t want to teach? This training shows you how to use the ancient science of yoga to solve your modern problems.
The course will empower you to teach yoga and/or move through your own life in a way that feels centered and aligned with YOUR values.
I’ll be offering you my yoga method, my insights, and my wisdom. I’ll also create constant awareness that there is no “one size fits all.” I want YOU to uncover your own inner teacher and unique style.
Uplifted™ training is all about giving you the tools to be uniquely you.
Focus on the In-Demand Field of Fascia
Fascia is the inter-connective tissue that runs through your whole body like a giant 3D spider web. It’s what all your muscles and cells live in, and is often referred to as “the missing link in modern medicine.”
What I LOVE about fascia is that it takes into account the whole body. It also has a deep anatomical and metaphysical philosophy of its own.
While other trainings focus only on yoga, Uplifted™ includes specific fascia modules. This includes an exclusive session with me and Tom Myers, who is regarded as the world’s foremost authority on fascia.
All this is a bonus to enhance your ability to teach, treat, and heal the whole person.
Be Your Own Boss
When enrolled in yoga teacher training, the words “job,” “income,” or (heaven forbid) “social media” were never mentioned in my classes.
“Money” as a concept was ignored completely by the teachers.
Uplifted™ is different! I completely understand that many of you yearn to earn from teaching yoga. So did I! I’ll share tales from the trenches on how to teach and make money. Take note: If you’re interested in teaching yoga as a profession, you’ve also just signed up to become an entrepreneur.
This holds true whether you choose to teach locally, teach online, or run your own studio or retreats. As a yoga teacher, you must be savvy about how you spend your time in order to build your income.
I won’t hold anything back as I share my journey and what it took to grow my passion for yoga into a thriving online business. In fact, my yoga business surpassed my high-salaried tech day job in a span of just two years. Get all my up-to-the-minute tips, tools, and techniques for both the in-person studio and online worlds.
INCLUDED ARE DETAILED TRAININGS ON HOW TO:
Build an online presence
Score private and corporate clients
Create a basic website
Start teaching online
Optimize your social media
Run email marketing campaigns to fill your programs
My friends and students tell me my yoga is different — that they feel seen and honored doing yoga with me, and that it felt tuned perfectly to their needs and bodies. This I learned from Brett. It will change your life, your body, your connections and I am so blessed to say — the lives of those you teach.
So happy I chose this course. Keeping the material is a huge bonus, but even without that aspect the program is beautifully designed and manageable for busy moms!
My busy and erratic schedule prevents me from being able to attend most traditional YTT courses. This training has allowed me to learn without sacrificing my ability to be present in other areas of my life.
I was not only welcomed to voice my questions but encouraged to reach out and share. Brett has found a perfect way to teach and inspire students in an interactive online format. Her thoroughness and knowledge far exceeded my expectations.
I have 4 kids and usually trainings are a year of weekends. This is really challenging for most people. I feel like I was able to learn so much from the interaction of Brett’s calls. I loved having Brett look over our photos and analyze them. I learned so much from this!
This training helped me understand yoga on a deeper level and provided a high-level of instruction. Additionally, the business side of the training was stellar if you’re looking to take your yoga offerings online.
I was nervous to participate due to the language (I am Swedish), but it has gone really well and everyone is so compassionate and understanding. I have developed my english and my yoga knowledge at the same time. A great combination!
Looking back on my Uplifted YTT experience, I feel extremely prepared to teach classes on my own and already jumped into teaching a gym just halfway through the course. Brett’s training provided so much value beyond anything I could have expected.
I came into this expecting to learn how to teach yoga, and I came out with so much more. I learned more about my anatomy and how there is so much more to yoga than just the postures. Honestly, this gave me so many techniques to use on my mat and off.
This training was so pivotal and empowering in my life path. No matter how nervous or scared I was to take this leap, the guidance of Brett, Stephanie, and Jennifer was beyond what I could have ever wished for. I have truly been uplifted!
I was extremely nervous about the course load and feeling overwhelmed. I was able to stay on track because the course and accountability through the Live Calls was delivered perfectly. This training exceeded my expectations and I am very much looking forward to MORE with the new 300 hour YTT.

….If any of the above describes you – join the Uplifted YTT campus.
Do I have to be a certain level of yoga?
Being a good yoga instructor has nothing to do with being able to do fancy, complex inversions or arm balances. That being said, a solid personal practice in which you’re doing yoga regularly is required. Ideally, you love yoga and are practicing yoga postures daily, before this yoga instructor training even begins. Take a look at my monthly calendar that has a daily yoga routine designed to help you build your yoga practice right from home.
Do you have to have completed a certain amount of hours before this training?
No, this is a full 200-Hour level yoga instructor training and no prior training is required. This training course is for yogis who aspire to become a registered yoga teacher. To learn more about the different levels of certification, read my blog post about the difference between 200-, 300-, and 500-hour yoga teacher training programs.
What type of content will you learn in this program?
Opt to download the syllabus above which has a detailed week-by-week breakdown of everything that’s covered in my yoga teacher training courses. The curriculum includes content for both the philosophical and physical practice of yoga. This will include an in-depth study of the teachings of ancient yoga traditions, pranayama meditation, yoga asanas, and professional development. The curriculum is designed to improve your personal yoga practice as well as your teaching abilities, giving you a truly life-changing experience through this online yoga certification program.
Does it cover the business aspects of teaching?
Yes! This course covers how to:
- how to market yourself as a yoga instructor
- how to teach yoga online
- how to lead live yoga classes with Zoom
- how to negotiate your pay with yoga studios
- how to price your yoga classes
- how to accept payments from your yoga students
- how to choose yoga insurance
- which tech tools to use to run your yoga business
- how much yoga teachers make in the industry
- (plus so much more!)
There will be 10+ hours of business training with the option for additional mentorship from Brett, and/or the option to teach yoga or work within the Uplifted™ community. Once you complete the program, you will be able to proudly add it to your yoga instructor resume and start applying for teaching jobs with confidence.
How long does the training last?
Around 16 weeks (4 months) from start to finish.
What will the schedule look like?
The exact week-by-week schedule will be sent out two weeks prior to the training’s start date, but you can expect each week to have been 8 – 10 hours of teacher training commitments:
- 4 hours of watching video content assignments
- Three 90-minute Live Calls (attendance required at one of the three)
- 30 minutes of at-home reading or homework
Can I do this certification program with a full-time job?
Yes. In fact, this program is designed with full-time employees and parents in mind.
At what times exactly are the weekly live calls?
Please download the brochure to see exact dates and call times for upcoming trainings. Below are example call times we’ve used in the past, that we’ve found work best for students all over the world. We request YTT students who are pursuing certification to be live at one of these three call times (so Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday).
EXAMPLE CALL TIMES:
- Mondays @ 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST / 6:30pm GMT / 5:30am AEDT (Tuesdays)
- Wednesdays @ 5:30pm PST / 8:30pm EST / 12:30pm AEDT (Thursdays)
- Saturdays @ 8am PST / 11am EST / 4pm GMT
Replays of all live calls are always available. We understand you may need to miss some live calls due to vacations, illness or family commitments. Just do your best to be live as much as possible. This is what makes this program so unique and interactive, and helps you make lifelong friends with your fellow classmates!
Is it all online?
Yes, unless you chose to separately study with Brett in person. Everything is online via pre-recorded material and live, group video chat discussions. Unlike the majority of online teacher trainings you may explore, this is a high-touch, deeply interactive experience in which you are live with Brett and fellow students for 3+ hours each week. We’ve been perfecting the art of training yoga teachers in a virtual setting for over 6 years.
Would the Yoga Teacher Training certification specify “online”?
No, your certification and diploma is a regular 200-Hour Certification and says nothing about being “online.” Keep in mind that weekly live attendance is required via our video calls in order to graduate. There is the option to conclude your online training with an in-person training or retreat if you would like to. This course is fully accredited by Yoga Alliance, so you will get RYT 200 status with your certification.
Is there a maximum number of students?
Yes, we close enrollment once the maximum number of students has been reached. This is to ensure individualized attention for each student.
What system/other requirements are needed to participate?
- A webcam or smartphone with a camera
- A decent internet connection
- You will need to purchase the Uplifted™ Yoga Teacher Training manual and required reading books, in addition to the price of the program (less than $75). More information regarding this will be provided after registration.
- Proficiency in English, as all instruction and the final exam is given in English.
Can I complete the program on my iPad or other mobile devices?
Yes, you can use your iPad or other mobile devices to complete this the training.
Is there a course outline syllabus I can view?
Yes, enter your details here to be emailed the Uplifted™ Online Yoga Teacher Training course syllabus from last semester as a sample.
Can I preview the certification program and curriculum to see what it’s all about?
Yes, click here to get the brochure and see four sample videos from the training.
How to do I complete my final practicum? What do I need to do in order to graduate?
To graduate from the 200-Hour program you must: (1) Pass the online multiple choice exam (2) Complete a final teaching practicum by sending in a 20-min video of you teaching. Don’t worry if you’ve never filmed a yoga video before. We’ll guide and walk you through how to film your practicum, step-by-step.
Can I take this training while pregnant?
Yes! What a wonderful gift for you and your baby! If you would like to learn more about practicing yoga while pregnant and teaching methodology for prenatal yoga, then you might also enjoy our prenatal yoga training course. While this course does not provide a yoga instructor certification, it teaches you about the anatomy and physiology of yoga with respect to pregnancy.
Can I take this training if I have an injury?
If you are able to photograph yourself in most yoga asanas (yoga postures), then yes. Submitting modified versions of the poses is not only OK, but it’s also encouraged! However, if you can’t do any yoga at all, waiting for one of my future training courses is the best option. Being able to take and submit photos of yourself for review is an important part of the interactive experience in becoming a certified yoga instructor through this program.
What payment options do you accept?
You can pay with a credit card or PayPal. All pricing is listed in US dollars and payments will be automatically be converted to US dollars if you are paying with another currency.
Do you have payment plans?
Yes. Many students choose to enroll in our interest-free payment plan options. Please download the full training brochure above for tuition, dates and details, as well as information on our interest-free payment plans. With all online yoga teacher training plans, your billing cycle will be based on your initial payment date. You can choose any date prior to the deadline. For example: if you choose the 7-month plan and submit your first payment on October 15th, the subsequent payments will process on the 15th of each following month.
Can you provide me with proof of tuition payment for my own business or tax purposes?
Of course! Good thinking! If you are already a yoga teacher or in a profession in which yoga certification could enhance your business (aka a massage practitioner, nutritionist or similar), your tuition could be tax deductible. Please check with your accountant.
What if I enroll, but then need to defer?
You may choose to defer your enrollment to the following training class anytime up to 30 days prior to the start of training. This is free of charge. Simply let us know via email. Within 30 days of the start of training, enrollment has closed. We can no longer accept deferrals at this time. If you do choose to defer within 30 days of the start of your training or after training has begun, access to any training materials will be revoked. You are welcome to re-enroll and join a future class for a $550 deferment fee. When the training you’ve chosen begins, access to your training course material will be reinstated.
Is this YTT ACE approved?
While not officially affiliated with ACE, past YTT students have successfully submitted this yoga teacher certification to count toward their ACE continuing education hours. If submitted properly, the training fulfills close to 2-years worth of ACE’s continuing education requirement. A great option for personal trainers and fitness instructors!
Is this YTT Yoga Alliance approved?
Yes. We are a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance, ID 197303. Our program exceeds all Yoga Alliance online training guidelines.
Keep in mind that Yoga Alliance is a private, nonprofit entity that is optional for teachers to pay to join. Yoga Alliance is not sanctioned by any local, state, or federal government. Paying Yoga Alliance to be listed in their directory is not a requirement to get insurance or be legally protected while teaching yoga. Our online teacher training includes detailed modules on how to best protect yourself legally while teaching yoga (either in-person, online or via pre-recorded video streaming).
“I’m disappointed and concerned that Yoga Alliance has decided not to monitor online yoga teacher training class size, nor set specific guidelines for “live” versus pre-recorded content streaming. Our program continues to exceed Yoga Alliance’s requirements for an RYS 200 Online Yoga School. Our certification process ensures the highest-quality 200 RYT credential, far beyond what Yoga Alliance has outlined.”
Can I teach with this yoga teacher certification?
Yes, you can teach privates, corporates, yoga studios, and obtain insurance (module on how to secure your insurance is included in the training) and/or start your own Youtube channel or online yoga business. You’ll also be featured as an Uplifted™ Yoga Teacher on Brett’s site featuring your bio, teaching schedule, and contact information. If you need a letter of recommendation from Brett for a particular teaching job, this can be provided.
This training program definitely prepares you for traditional yoga routes, but if you’d like to venture into teaching online courses, running your own yoga business, or learning how to market yourself as a yoga instructor, then check out my 300-hr yoga teacher training program where I teach you ALL of that!
Can I get yoga insurance?
Yes. Through our partnership with beYogi, which offers the best support and coverage in the yoga insurance industry, you even have the option to purchase a student policy right at the start of training.
How many years experience do you usually have before training?
Everyone is coming to yoga with a different background. The most important thing (more than time or years spent practicing) is your passion and dedication/commitment to your own personal practice of yoga. There are many factors to consider before you become a yoga instructor and your experience is only one of them.
Is it a self-paced type online training or is it more scheduled?
Access all 200-Hour training content instantly, the moment you enroll. Then, as a group, we’ll be moving through a set schedule in which we cover material week-by-week. If you fall behind, you can still graduate as long as you complete all the requirements within 18 months of your start date and attend the required number of live calls. This is not your typical “self-study” online course in which you have no interaction or oversight. This program is HIGHLY interactive and designed to foster a sense of community among participants, with lots of direct access to Brett. I am dedicated to your success!
What kind of ratio will we be looking at for time allotted to learning more about physical yoga practice/demo-ing, versus the business aspects of teaching?
Request the syllabus for a breakdown of what’s covered, week-by-week. The majority of our time will be spent covering anatomy, philosophy, reviewing one another’s yoga poses to practice teaching within the group. However, this training covers a significant amount on finding business success with yoga as well. This will include teaching methodology, how to market yourself as a yoga teacher, and where to find yoga students.
Will the teacher training program cover teaching any other parts of living a yogic lifestyle besides just leading physical classes?
Yes! This program has a heavy focus on meditation, pranayama breathing techniques, the fascial system, chakras, igniting your best life through yoga asana and bringing yoga philosophy into your daily life. We will focus on the ancient traditions of yoga, giving you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the yogic lifestyle. Not only will you deepen your personal yoga practice but you will also experience profound personal growth along the way.
What style or styles of yoga will be taught?
Alignment-based vinyasa flow with a focus on igniting your best self through the science of yoga. Strong emphasis on myofascial release, mindset, and translating yoga’s wisdom into our modern lives. This is yoga in the Hatha/Vinyasa tradition, which will not only help you improve your personal yoga practice, but will also help prepare you to teach many types of yoga. Your instructor certification will prepare you to teach Vinyasa yoga, yoga Nidra, Hatha yoga, Restorative Yoga, and more. It will provide a firm foundation for other, related types of yoga, such as Ashtanga yoga.
Will there be other faculty teaching the course work?
Yes. Kristin Leal author of Meta Anatomy™ co-teaches Anatomy with Brett. Jennifer Hall, Brett’s lead RYT 500-Hour trainer teaches core Uplifted Yoga alignment principles and sanskrit. Several other guest experts who are beloved by Brett will present modules as well.
Is there help in finding your voice and own personal style?
Yes! Brett is not on a mission to make you teach like her or embrace her methodology only. She wants to empower you to discover what makes YOU special.
Are there books or other materials that aren’t included in the price?
Yes. Please budget $75 in total to acquire the Uplifted™ Teacher Training Manual and two required reading books. The literature will support both your teaching practice and your personal yoga practice. Whether you decide to teach yoga in a yoga studio or you’re simply looking to deepen your practice through this online yoga instructor course, these materials will support you. Otherwise, I recommend a list of yoga books to help further your study.
Will there be a separate community created for everyone in the yoga certification program (like Yoga Hackers or Uplifted™)?
Yes! Yoga teacher trainees will have their own Facebook group that Brett also moderates heavily. We offer deep community support throughout your instructor certification program so that you can continue to learn and grow, even when you’re not in class.
Is this a one-time thing, or will there be others for those that can’t do it this time?
The full Uplifted™ Online Yoga Teacher Training brochure has all the details on upcoming dates and registration. Yoga teacher training courses are offered multiple times throughout the year, giving you a variety of dates to choose from. Note: You have lifetime access to our community and all training videos, even after successful completion of the program.
Visual vs didactic learners – is the online yoga instructor program for both learning types?
The training is a mixture of video, audio, reading, writing and live group participation, catering to a wide variety of learning styles. Most importantly, you’ll be getting personal feedback and attention. Together, we’ll ensure you succeed.
This course is not only a game changer, but a life changer. You think you’re going to learn how to be a yoga teacher, and what you actually get is SO much more. The best part? You get to do it with wonderfully like-minded classmates and the guidance of inspiring people who push you to be the best version of yourself.
SO happy that I chose Brett to lead me through my YTT experience, she was exactly the teacher I was hoping she would be. Each module built on the one before. I kept thinking it can’t get better than this, and then it DID!
Signing up, I felt a lot of fear. I finally leapt with faith, and this has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I love how Brett trains teachers with her key message: To find our own unique style and voice.
In my first YTT, we did not have the chance to really explore postures and alignment in depth. This online training is just so awesome because we have the ability to really freeze-frame and analyze alignment. LOVE it!
Brett’s YTT Manual is an amazing document. The Asana pages are priceless! The Myofascial Release and Body Reading information is helping me so much in cueing individual students. As a Bridge student, I needed the further training even more than I realized! Brett is a gifted and dedicated teacher who works tirelessly to enable her students to learn! (I am a career teacher; I do not say that lightly.) With this YTT and the quality of the students Brett attracts, SUCCESS is guaranteed.
