Who’s Behind Yoga Teacher Prep Academy?
Laura Martini has made her living as a yoga teacher for over a decade but she can still remember the fear, anxiety and self-doubt she experiences before she got certified. Now with a thriving yoga teaching career, she hasn’t lost touch with how it all felt in the beginning. She is personally dedicated to the principal that we must always be learning and that was the reason she wanted to create the Yoga Teacher Prep Academy.
She’s also a yoga teacher training instructor so she’s reminded on a regular basis of the struggle that students face as they step into their yoga teacher training. It’s coming face to face with these students, fielding their questions beforehand and witnessing what a little extra support can do to enhance their experience that keeps her motivated to serve.

What's a workshop?
A workshop is a mini-course delivered online. In any given workshop, you’ll find a combination of video instruction, downloadable PDFs, online references and quizzes. The more workshops you complete, the more prepared you’ll be!
How often will new content be added?
Since we launched in 2016, we’ve been adding new content about every other month. This has included new workshops, yoga classes and meditations.

This new content will come from community requests so if there is something you’d like to see added, just ask!
Can I download this content?
Within the various workshops there are several elements that you can download. We did this purposely so that you would always have a reference even if you decide to leave the Academy. However, the yoga classes, meditations and workshop videos all stream from within the Academy. You’ll be able to access them as long as you have internet access and you can watch or listen to them as many times as you like.

Yes, we have a Facebook community that includes Yoga Teacher Prep Academy members and Yoga Teacher Prep fans. It’s an active community where you can get your questions answered by yoga teachers and other students just like you.
Can I join if I'm not in YTT / have finished YTT?
Absolutely! We’d love to have students in the community before and after yoga teacher training because we believe that we are all perpetual students. We know that these resources will come in handy for prep, reference and ongoing practice. And, we are committed to adding new content all the time. Plus, Academy members get substantial discounts on our premium workshops and our full programs so the value of membership goes well beyond the current content.
