Our Mission

Accessibility, Affordability & Authenticity

Yoga and Ayurveda Center

Our mission at Online Yoga School is to make yoga teacher training affordable and accessible to anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge in yoga or become a yoga teacher while preserving the authenticity of ancient yogic wisdom.  Not only do we have thousands of hours of training behind us, but we practice and teach regularly. Finding inner peace while building inner and outer strength is something that we hold true to ourselves.

Founder of Online Yoga School and Yoga & Ayurveda Center

Steph Ball-Mitchell, E-RYT-500, RPYT, RCYT, YACEP, CAADC

Steph has 25 years of experience in yoga and movement.  Her understanding of yoga and the human body has been influenced by lifelong dancing and holistic health. She found her life’s purpose in helping people become happier and healthier through her own healing journey.  Steph assists her students in knowing the joy and wonderment of integrating the mind and body.  She encourages an authentic and life-nurturing practice, one that brings greater consciousness to each moment and every movement of the body with a heavy emphasis on breath.  

With a masters degree in counseling, Steph brings awareness, acceptance and a down to earth approach to her classes.  She completed her second 200-hour training with Nancy Candea at Yoga Impact in New Jersey and her 300-hour training with Chris Loebsack at Boundless Yoga Studio in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.   The perpetual student, Steph has studied with Leslie Howard, Travis Eliot, Bryan Kest, Maty Ezraty, Donna Farhi and countless others.  She has extensive training in pelvic floor yoga, restorative yoga, yin yoga, power yoga and accessible yoga.  Most recently, Steph was certified as a Grand Master of Meditation through Swami Vidyanand.

Steph founded Yoga and Ayurveda Center with her husband.  They launched Online Yoga School to support their local trainings and have recently launched a virtual yoga studio to accommodate the international community of trainees.

When she isn’t on her mat, Steph can be found volunteering, enjoying her husband and children, dancing and cooking.  She previously enjoyed serving on the Education Committee of Yoga Alliance and places a strong emphasis on inclusivity in her teacher trainings.

My favorite part, aside from being abke to work thru the program at my own pace were her webinar Q & A sessions. So many thoughtful questions under so many topic headings, she took the time to explain things, often from technical as well as philosophical point of view. I am already looking at what else is offered and am working on a chair yoga continuing education class.

This was the best thing that came out of 2020 and COVID-19. I can not be more thankful for Steph and her staff. I know I still have a lot to learn but I have learned an amazing amount from taking this course and I can not wait to share and teach. I am forever grateful to my family and friends for all their support and extremely grateful to Steph for giving me this opportunity. I am looking forward to taking more courses with Steph. Thank you,
