What Our Students Are Saying

— Kayla M.

"What sets the Kaivalya Yoga Method® apart "

"I researched countless yoga teacher trainings in search of one that was affordable, convenient, and offered a comprehensive, engaging curriculum. What set the Kaivalya Yoga Method® online training apart was its innovative use of multimedia channels to provide knowledge and support remotely without compromising the integrity of the mentor/student relationship. This training has not only given me valuable insight into how to safely and effectively teach yoga, but also into improving my quality of life by applying yogic philosophies in everything I do."

— Janis Isaman

"I wanted the best"

“I am a serial education geek, but I carefully choose my teachers: I look to learn from someone who I truly believe can enhance my own mind and body approach, in order to make me a better human and a better practitioner. I wanted to study from a best-in-class teacher, but I also didn’t want to close my business for a month. Alanna’s reputation, plus the “practical” benefits of online learning won me over. It’s an honest and first-in-class course. Credential? Check. But you are going to grow and learn and be challenged along the way. Just what I signed up for!"

— Chantel Rivard

"I enjoy interacting with the Mentors"

"I was initially intrigued by the online yoga teacher training due to the flexible schedule and ability to do it in the comfort of my own home. The Kaivalya Yoga method teacher training from Yoga Download has far surpassed my expectations of not just an online training, but of any Yoga teacher training. I enjoy the different methods of interaction with the Mentors as well as the other students. The feedback on assignments or response to any questions is received in a timely manner as well as being thorough and informative. My original intent of getting yoga teacher training was for my own personal benefit, but Alanna's joy for the practice shines through and makes me feel confident enough to consider teaching for the public, I know by the end of the training I will have all the tools I would need!"

Meet Alanna Kaivalya, Ph.D

Alanna, Founder + Chancellor

Over the 20 years I’ve been practicing and teaching yoga, I’ve had the good fortune to study with a great many teachers. From mentors here in the United States, as well as around the globe in India, Bali, and Europe, there are many who have influenced my own practice and the development of The Kaivalya Yoga Method®. Some you will be familiar with like: Sharon Gannon & David Life, Mark Whitwell, and Richard Freeman. Others are more obscure, such as Sheshadri, who lives in Mysore, India and teaches a variant of Ashtanga Yoga, or Anne Kasmen, who lived in Bali (she has since passed) and brought me great spiritual revelations through her unique work.

I’ve studied the asana traditions of yoga, and I’ve also studied the philosophical and mythological aspects of yoga with classical instructors and through my studies in higher education. My Ph.D. is in Mythological Studies with emphasis in Depth Psychology, and that work greatly informs how I bring this practice to you now. It’s been decades in the making, and I also believe it will continue to evolve as we work together here in this program!
