Frequently asked Questions & Answers:
What is the size of this Yoga Teacher Training? Spring training is capped at 10 students. Fall trainings are capped at 7 students.
What if I’m injured, out of shape or not as flexible as I once was? Your physical “weaknesses”, injuries and limitations are what will make you a great teacher. Asana (physical postures) is 1/8 of yoga and will make up only 1/4 of our training. Not having the physique seen on the cover of Yoga Journal or not being able to beast through the sequences you see on Instagram are what makes you the perfect teacher- bringing the wisdom of yoga to real people in real life who will benefit greatly from your authentic sharing and modifying of poses with props and verbal cues that make it accessible to all.
Which styles of yoga will be covered in the training? We will deeply explore The 8 limbs of Hatha Yoga. Students will graduate with mastery of the 12 foundational Hatha Poses, as well as Namaskar A. Emphasis will be on Yin Yoga, Kundalini and Restorative Yoga. Sally is certified in Children’s Yoga and Ayurveda, so we will spend a day dabbling in the richness of both of those topics as well. This training will meet you where you are and deepen the skills you need to be an excellent teacher on and off the mat. “Yoga is a journey of the self, to the self, through the self.”
What is the content of the training? Yoga Alliance is the credentialing board for yoga certification. This governing body has established 4 core competencies and divided the 200 hour training requirements into the 4 competencies as follows:
Anatomy,Physiology,Biomechanics (includes physical anatomy, chakras and koshas-energetic anatomy) 30 hours
Philosophy/Ethics/History (includes lineage, 8 limbs of yoga, Yamas and Niyamas, Ethical touch) 30 hours
Techniques/Teaching/Practice (includes asana, meditation, pranayama) 75 hours
Professional Essentials (includes practicum, teaching methodology, career strategies and classroom dynamic teaching skills) 65 hours
What if I miss a day of training? Will I still graduate? It is a requirement of Yoga Alliance, the credentialing body of yoga certification that you attend 100% of the trainings. I will have 2 make up days on Mondays- dates TBD. If you miss a day and can’t make up one of those Mondays, you will not graduate with your class, but you may join the Weekend training with the next YTT group and make up hours that way.
What are the required readings for the training? Is there a training manual? The one required book to purchase is Hatha Yoga Pradipika available on Amazon for $17.55. There are many other books we will read together in class and for homework, and these will be available for you to peruse and borrow. There is a 74 page training e-manual that is included in tuition. For an additional $36 you can have your training manual printed on glossy colored paper spiral bound for easy reference.
