At the Institute of Yoga Sports Science® has been teaching yoga online for over a decade. Our mission is to support as many Yoga Teachers around the world right now as they start to transition their Yoga teaching online.

We have created a 20-Hour Course on How to Teach Yoga Online, sharing tips and best practices from a decade of successfully teaching in the online space, aimed at giving you the confidence and the tools to teach your students in a safe and interactive way. A highlight of this Course is a weekly group session where you can sit around the virtual round table with Hayley Winter, founder, Bonnie Strati, Director of Operations, and fellow Yoga Teachers from around the world, who, just like you, are learning to get online quickly and continue doing what they love.

Teaching Yoga online requires enhanced teaching skills. Our 40-Hour Online Immersion Course, 'The Science of Teaching Yoga for Athletes', covers the science of yoga sequencing and gives you a great foundational understanding of yoga and biomechanics, helping you understand the importance of sequencing to support the functional yoga to support the everyday athlete.

During these times we consider everyone to be an athlete from the professionals, to moms that are homeschooling, as well the healthcare and key workers and everyone in between.

The Institute of Yoga Sports Science® is the global leader in providing a world-class sports-specific yoga education to yoga, healthcare, and fitness professionals. Through the application of science, we bridge the gap between yoga and sport, enabling yoga enthusiasts and athletes of all ages and abilities to benefit from our tried and tested methods.

Our evidenced-based, sports-specific yoga approach of teaching yoga to athletes, provides our students with a unique opportunity to turn a passion for yoga and sport, into a professional career as a Yoga Sports Coach™.


Each student that has trained with us and completed their certification as a Yoga Sports has contributed to our growing database of evidence, demonstrating how and why yoga works to prevent injury and improve athletic performance.


Our mission is simple: we train yoga professionals to deliver sports-specific yoga to athletes, tailored to the demands of their sport, and integrated into their training in an easy, sustainable, and enjoyable way. 

The Institute of Yoga Sports Science® has its main campus online, with senior faculty members based in New York.

Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to further their knowledge of yoga. I found this extremely beneficial in understanding how to use yoga with athletes! I have been working with many athletes and their view of yoga has changed in a good way! They love the less is more approach and are enjoying learning more about how yoga can help them in their every day life as well as within their sport. Full Review

The Institute of Sports Science® offers invaluable training. This training teaches you how to integrate yoga into an athletes training/competing/working schedule in a managable and efficient way. This style of yoga works for athletes of all types and levels, AND it prepares you to work with the general public. Haley, Bonnie, and the rest of the YSS team are kind, welcoming, and experienced. I feel very confident in my skills as a Yoga Sports Coach™. It is a pricey program, but training is worth the money. Full Review
