You need few solution to get going for online training:
1. Your client would want to schedule appointment online.
For this you can use BookFresh (http://www.bookfresh.com/) or any other online appointment software. Just search for “online appointment software” on Google and you will get ton of options. Pick one that best suits your need. Make sure to pick one that integrate well with your website.
2. For video conferencing I would use Google hangout or Skype.
3. And last you need a solution that will let you manage clients. A program that would let you build workout program for them, review their daily activities, take assessments, measure their progress etc. There are fe solutions out there. We are building an iPad, IPhone, Android solution for both Personal Trainers and clients at TrainerFu (http://www.trainerfu.com)

Let me know if you have more questions.
I agree with Manobal..”for video conferencing use Google hangout or Skype.” I would also recommend you record it (Google “how to record a Google hangout” or “how to record a Skype call”) and email a link of the recording to your student. That will help turn him/her into a raving fan because you’ve gone above the call of duty.
I highly recommend you ask your student for permission to use the recording in an Information Product (e.g. If the session was about strengthening the core muscles for a local golf pro, you could give the golf pro 2, 3, 4 or more sessions on the subject, record each one and create a course (e.g. on http://udemy.com) for yoga teachers on how to teach golfers to strengthen their core muscles. Don’t forget to ask the golf pro for a testimonial and add it to the sales copy for the course.
Here’s another idea for you…
I’m in the process of setting up a website where yoga teachers can upload audios of their yoga classes for free. Each time someone clicks on one of your audios you will make money.
It’s a great way of creating “passive income streams” simply by connecting a ┬ú45 lavilier microphone to a smartphone and clicking the record button.
It can quickly morph into a pretty nifty “online training program” for your students. For example, if one of your students is struggling with sleeping and you’ve recorded a class called: “15 minute nighttime yoga routine to help you sleep like a baby”, you could simply let the student know how to access it online.
Here’s another example…
If one of your students approaches you with an issue (e.g. lower back pain), when you get home you could whip out your phone, insert the lavilier microphone, record yourself doing a 15 minute “yoga for lower back routine”, upload it to the website and then send an email to your student letting them know its available online. This way you not only created a raving fan (who will start sending you lots of lovely referrals), you’ve also created a passive income stream (people all over the world will be able to download or stream the audio).

1) You should have a video conferencing account as should your clients. Skype or google hangout works fine
2) You need to use web-based software that both you and your clients can access that provides online tools like workout tracking & organizing, goal/body measurement progress tracking (in very nice easy to read graphs), allows you to provide demo videos for your clients and includes a scheduling system. There are a few out there. One I really like is http://www.FitSW.com. It is a quick signup, completely free for your first 5 clients and better than a lot of the other expensive ones out there.
