all your hesitations answered on a 200hour teacher training
Teacher training is an investment. We get it. We’ve been there. Many students worry that they don’t know enough about yoga, or don’t want to teach, or if it’s the right time for them to dive into this process. Below are some frequently asked questions about our program!
Even more, we’re hosting an info session on out two summer programs (the only offerings we have for 2019) coming up in just a few weeks. Details below!
What if I don't have a "regular" practice? Or an "advanced" practice? What if I’m __ years old?
Relax! We’ve had brand new practitioners as well as those who have practiced for years! It actually adds to a very dynamic group and encourages a more in-depth learning experience. On top of that, we’ve had students who are in high school, and students who are well past retirement go through training!
How do I know the program is the right fit?
Let’s chat! We would love to set up a time to talk on the phone and answer your questions. Even better, let’s get together in person: we have an info session coming up on April 11th. Details on this are at the bottom of the page!
What if I don't want to teach yoga?
Many people enter into a training program not wanting to teach, actually! Some people do it to learn more about the system and practice for themselves, and others enter knowing they want to offer this in their communities.
What is the cost of investment? What are the dates and formats?
You can find all the details on our teacher training here.
What if I have to miss a day of training?
Let us know prior to registration and we are willing to work with it! Because this is a Yoga Alliance accredited program, students are required to have so many contact hours. This means that students need to be in the studio and in contact with one of the teachers. Any hours that are missed during training must be made up. This can happen through other teacher training sessions, workshops, self-study, or private sessions (and may incur extra cost dependent on material missed.)
What are the extra requirements?
Outside of the training hours, we require that students take classes at the studio, observe a number of classes, teach a final class, challenge oneself to a sadhana (a daily disciplined practice) and complete homework assigned. All hours must be accounted when applying for certification after training!
If you're even a little curious about what this looks like in your life, and how it can transform you-- join us for an info session on Thursday, April 11 at 7:00!
