The Bare Yogis School of Yoga is led by Billy Barefoot Yogi and Padma Dharmata, who have both been teaching and training for 12+ years! We have led numerous small-group in-person teacher trainings, and are now instructing online, and have collectively led hundreds through our online courses! The goal of our trainings is not to just *get certified*, but our goal is to help unlock your greatest potential both in your life and as a yoga instructor! You will graduate, not just by hours and attendance alone, but also through competence, integrity, and harnessing your yoga as a way of life! This training has the capability of becoming a transformational experience for all involved.

With our Online Training Program:​​

  • You can train on your OWN schedule! There are no schedules to adhere to, and this is the number one question we receive from students interested in our online programs. You create your own schedule!

  • There are no start dates---begin when you're ready! Today, if you'd like!

  • There are no deadlines! If you'd like to train in a month, you can do that! If you'd like to train over six months, you can do that! Every student has a different learning style, capacity, and availability, and we are here to help you meet your goals, around YOUR schedule!

  • Our training system is extremely user-friendly! If you've landed on this page already, then you have the ability to easily navigate our training material. We believe in being as user-friendly and understandable as possible, and our online yoga teacher training is no exception!

  • Our training material is a blend of engaging videos, text, reading assignments, written assignments, physical practice, and more. Our philosophy is to be as engaging as possible, as this will be how you will truly learn.

  • You are not alone in this training. If you are an independent personality, you are welcome to train as independently as you like! However, we want all of our students to know that we are here at any time to assist you with your training, or for additional one-on-one training time. 

  • This training and certification will give you purpose. We all have moments in life of feeling stuck, or feeling that we're not contributing very much to the well-being and development of society or humans, or sometimes to ourselves, in general. Perhaps this certification is not your end-goal, but is a step along the way. As a certified yoga instructor, you will be able to provide valuable yoga instruction to the people in your life. Yoga, as a physical practice provides relief for various aches and pains, medical conditions, stress, and more, as well as bringing vitality to our bodies and builds strength and flexibility! As a mental practice, yoga helps greatly with stress, anxiety, depression, self-abuse, abuse from others, addiction, recovery, trauma, PTSD, and more. As a spiritual practice, yoga can help us to connect to our inner source, or our higher power---to truly understand who we are. The possibilities are endless, but after seeing the positive transformations in over 18,000 students' lives throughout our teaching careers, we recognize how powerful and impacting yoga is for every person, whether they initially realize it or not, and this all begins with an individual training as a yoga teacher and gaining the skills to bring yoga to the people.

This 200-hour yoga teacher training will guide you to finding the in-depth knowledge necessary to become an incredible instructor! Not interested in teaching? Many students over the years have utilized our trainings to deepen their personal practice and increase their knowledge about yoga, even with no intent of ever teaching a class! This is an incredible opportunity to deepen your spiritual journey and further connect to yourself and your life's purpose! 


All of our trainings go above and beyond Yoga Alliance guidelines, as we want our trainees to be the very best, and to have the capability to impact lives through yoga! Our yoga training will prepare the student to teach yoga postures and philosophy, in a motivating and genuine style, and will help to unlock your greatest potential, in what your teaching style is meant to be (that's a little different for every person). The student will also graduate with teaching experience (unlike many trainings), as much of our training revolves around practice, practice, practice! Once the student graduates, they will feel confident and prepared to begin their teaching journey!

These yogis are amazing people! They really focus on making yoga accessible to everyone and they know yoga intimately. It's not ALL about asana here, there is a strong focus on the other 7 limbs and it's wonderful. They also have A LOT of experience running yoga studios and are extremely helpful in that regard. They have an abundant mindset and you can feel how much they want you to learn, grow, and become an amazing yoga teacher.


Bare Yogis is an amazing school to cultivate the principles, traditions, and knowledge into becoming an outstanding yoga teacher. I was especially satisfied with the heavy emphasis on yoga for ALL bodies! I am eager to continue furthering my skills with Bare Yogis in the future! OUTSTANDING.


This course was just what I needed to deepen my practice and help me tame my anxiety! Padma and Billy are so open-minded, non-judgmental, and supportive. I felt comfortable and supported, which helped me to relax and get the most out of the course. The online course format was easy to navigate, and the module videos were so well-done. Highly recommended.
