Teacher Training FAQ

What makes this training different?
The aim of this program is to produce exceptional teachers. We achieve this with a rigorous results-orientated approach where we incorporate systematic and intelligent tools that work in making a real difference in the classroom, and by getting real with and practicing what it takes to create authentic and powerful connections with other people, such that both students and teacher are left in the experience of fulfilment and inspiration.

We will run practice teaching sessions every Tuesday night from 6pm - 9pm. In order to meet the 200 hours of training, you will need to attend one out of every two practice teaching evenings. You may attend every session if you want to. We recommend that you spread out your attendance so you can practice the different teaching skills that will be introduced over the course of the training. 

What if I can't make all of the dates?
If you want a certificate that can be used for your RYT-200 Yoga Alliance certification, you need to complete the full 200 hours of training. If you want this and you can't make all the dates, we are willing to look at working with you to make up the hours you'll miss. 

What's included in the cost of tuition?
Once you have paid your deposit, you may practice at the studio free of charge for the duration of the teacher training.
