You are able to pause the video and take notes, or practice the movements at any time. The learning method is simple and straight forward.
I am so grateful for the NESTA certification programs. I completed the Sport Yoga program and started my own business two weeks later. The program is extremely well designed. It effectively combines written text along with a series of videos, which enable the student to thoroughly grasp each concept. I truly appreciated the accessibility to Dr. John Spencer Ellis and his staff. They are available to answer all questions, and encourage you to achieve your goals. There is absolutely no other certification program like it.
After completing the program, I felt 100% confident in my ability to pass along my knowledge to my students. As I mentioned earlier, I now have my own business in South Orange County, and I absolutely love what I do. Helping people attain their fitness goals and making a living doing it is a dream come true. I would encourage any fitness enthusiast to complete this program! Thanks so much NESTA!
Here’s an example of your potential income teaching Sport Yoga
Six of your neighbors want to take your Sport Yoga™ class. You hold a small class in a community recreation room or park, someone’s basement, or a converted garage. Each person pays $15 per class. You make $90 per class. It’s that simple! So, basically, you will teach less than 4 classes and become profitable!
You can also conduct workshops, clinics and workplace yoga programs. You can make videos and start an online yoga community. Your possibilities are endless.
Turn your passion into profit while enhancing the lives of your clients.
