This is a Yoga Alliance Registered Program*
Mentor style teacher training recreates the traditional yoga model based on a strong and trusted relationship between student and teacher.
This self-study, self-paced course is perfect for those who need a flexible training schedule and prefer to study at home.
Self-Discipline and motivation are requirements for this program.
If you are interested in an online group training with a set schedule instead of self-paced,

The Lyn Kehoe Power Yoga School trains teachers in the power vinyasa style of yoga – a meditative, breath focused practice with philosophy weaved into the practice in a way that makes it relevant and understandable.
You will learn to lead a 75-90 minute all levels class while connecting ancient yoga philosophy with modern day to day life challenges in order to make it relatable to your students.
In the early days of yoga, the practice was passed down directly from teacher to student.
My mentor style yoga teacher training recreates this traditional yoga model.
While this is mostly a self-study program, what makes it unique from most “online” courses that are currently being offered is the individualized training with direct face-time with Lyn.
You will have a total of six 1-on-1 Zoom meetings.
During these sessions you will receive feedback on each teaching video you submit and have an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
I get to know each trainee and you will not be just another anonymous number signing up for an online course.
(I highly recommend before committing to an online training course to do some research. Many course DO NOT include direct feedback on trainee’s practice teach assignments. It is crucial that you are able to submit teaching videos where upon your teacher views them and gives you feedback – this is how you will learn and fine tune your teaching skills).
When you register for the course, you will receive a personalized email
directly from me (not an auto email). We will then set up our first Zoom session. This first session will be used to go over the curriculum and assignments so that you have a clear understanding of the requirements and expectations. I consider this training to be more of a self-study, self-paced course as opposed to a traditional online course.
You have 12 months from our first one-on-one Zoom meeting to complete the program.
Along with an online anatomy course, reading, and written assignments, you will be required to submit teaching videos. Please be sure you have at least one volunteer “student” to teach to. Please read the details of the curriculum and requirements below.
*Upon completion you will receive a 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate of completion from Lyn Kehoe Power Yoga. You will also be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-200 level. Please note: Yoga Alliance is only offering eligibility for online trainings until the end of 2023. Start now to complete on time!
