FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I TAKE JUST PART 1?

Yes. This is the immersion. It’s a prerequisite for part 2. You need both parts to become fully certified. If you’d like to just learn more about yoga, this is a great option. If you need to wait until a later date to finish, this is also a great option.

Can I just take part 2: You need to have part 1 before you can take part 2. Part two completes the yoga alliance requirements for a 200 hour certification.

Can I miss time and make it up: Yes. You can miss up to the equivalent of one weekend (20.5 hrs) and still make it up with video, meeting with the instructor, and answering some questions. If you go beyond the time of one weekend, you’d need to make it up at the next session of training.

Do all people who take a teacher training teach: No. Many people choose to take a teacher training to learn more about yoga and enhance their own personal practice.

What other work is involved in a teacher training: Aside from class time, there are two traditional texts to read, journal entries to write, yoga pose cards to make, practice hours, teaching hours, observation hours, and an open book test. Yoga teacher training is rigorous, but all the work involved is intended to help you digest the information being learned. You’ll always have the support of the teacher and the other folks taking the class.

What topics are covered in the teacher training: The yoga alliance has specific topics with required hours that we have to cover, like philosophy, anatomy and physiology, methodology, how to practice poses and breaths, what a yoga lifestyle entails, how to create and teach sequences. You’ll also have some elective topics that are specific to our school. Hands on adjustments, Ayurveda, teaching yoga to kids, and trauma sensitive yoga are a few of those topics.

Can I make payments: Yes, you can break up the payments for the program as much as you’d like. You need to have payed for the entire program by the first day of class. Remainder of part 1 by the start of part 1, remainder of part 2 by the start of part 2.

Do I need to have all my own gear: You don’t need to have your own gear. Most people like to have their own mat, and if you have your own blocks, straps or bolsters, you can bring them, but it’s not necessary.

What will I need to bring with me:

  • Teacher training manual (will be provided to you)
  • Extra paper to take notes on
  • Journal
  • Pens, highlighters
  • Index cards or whatever you’d like to use to make pose cards
  • Key muscles of yoga by Ray Long
  • Bhagavad Gita (any translation)
  • Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (any translation)
  • Any yoga props and mats of your own that you’d like to use
  • Food, water, anything to help you through the day, like a crazy creek or meditation pillow.
