How can I prepare for this teacher training?
All topics will be covered from scratch, step by step. The best preparation on your end is to best organise yourself in order to arrive with an open body, mind and heart. A regular, balanced yoga practice leading up to the training will ease and condition you for the program however participants should note that this is an extensive training over an extended period of time. You will be dedicating a lot of time and energy into your body and mind daily so don’t over-do yourself prior to starting this training. A great way to keep a balanced practice is through self practice, where you guide your own pace.
About Yoga Alliance?
Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher training in the US. More and more yoga studios across the country are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 500-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher.
Will I be qualified to teach yoga once I complete the 200-hour Teacher Training Program?
Yes! With the successful completion of all the requirements of the program, including contact hours, homework, and final teaching lab, you will receive your certification, proof of your training at the 200-Hour Level. You may also register with the Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.org) at the RYT-200 level (Registered Yoga Teacher 200). Graduates of the 200-Hour program usually begin teaching in small studios, gyms, with private clientele (friends and family), etc.
I have an injury/special condition – can I take this course?
We recommend that you check with your physician first and must sign a waiver stating that you are able to take the class. With your doctor’s permission and release, minor physical limitations can also serve as helpful demonstrations to learn to work with students with similar limitations.
