HOW ADVANCED MUST I BE TO ENROL?
You don’t have to be able to levitate or to bend yourself like a pretzel to attend the Yoga West teacher training. The most important characteristics for the training are an open mind and a willingness to embrace a new way of being. To get the most out of the training we typically require you to have practiced regularly for at least two years. If you have experience in a complimentary area such as training, dance or physical therapy we may make an exception to this rule. If this is the case please get in contact and we’d be happy to discuss the specifics of your situation.
WHAT CERTIFICATE WILL I RECEIVE?
All applicants who complete the training will receive a Yoga Alliance 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate and be eligible to register as a certified teacher with the Yoga Alliance.
DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes, please contact the studio to discuss payment options. All fees must be paid prior to the first day of the course.
HOW DO I SPEAK TO THE TEACHER TRAINERS BEFORE ENROLLING?
We have several Q&As scheduled with the faculty leaders at Yoga West prior to the teacher trainings, you can book these via our Workshops Page. We also strongly recommend you attend classes at the studio with the teacher-training faculty before the course starts.
WHAT TEACHING OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE?
All teacher training graduates will be able to share two weekly community classes.. All graduates will have the opportunity to undertake a one-hour one-on-one exit interview including tailored advice on how to build their teaching career.
HOW WILL I BE EXAMINED?
All students will be examined informally throughout the teacher training and will answer a questionnaire and will be assessed teaching a small group of fellow students at the end of the training.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL ATTEND THE COURSE
The course will be intimate with no more than 30 students permitted to attend.
WHAT READING WILL I HAVE TO DO ON THE COURSE
Once you have registered for the training you will receive a recommended reading list. The reading list is optional not obligatory. There will also be an informal book group that all students will be encouraged to attend to deepen and share their understanding of these texts. The groups are included in the course fee.
I’M NOT SURE I WANT TO TEACH
No worries. There are many reasons to undertake a teacher training. A desire to teach others is one of these reasons but not the only one. The training will be a transformational experience so who knows how you will feel about teaching at the end of the training. Some people started the training wanting to teach and others started it off not wanting to teach.
