|Closing Ceremony & Graduation|
Our Yoga teacher training program is highly interactive, and many modules depend on the consistent and collective energy of the group. For this reason, we do not recommend missing any sessions. That said, life happens. Students who miss a session can make it up by completing additional homework assignments related to the missed class topics. Each day is considered a session, and the maximum amount of missed time allowed is 3 sessions. Attendance and participation in the practice teaching days (of which there are 3 throughout the program), is required for certification. For make up homework and make up practice teaching day(s), additional fees apply.
There are numerous benefits beyond the obvious for participants of our Yoga Teacher Training Program. These include the opportunity to connect deeply with yourself and others through the training process, challenge yourself in new ways, expand awareness, acquire new skills, learn about your body, mind and heart, and ways to attune and create greater harmony on all levels of your life.
About 30% of students who sign up for our yoga teacher training program have no intention of teaching. Many students enroll in yoga teacher training to further develop their own personal practice of yoga and learn more about themselves and this ancient tradition.

Many people are exhausted from being on a screen all day long. If you fall into this boat here are a few ideas as you engage with these resources:
For any video close your eyes and just listen to the audio. If there is something you want to take notes on using your paper journal.
For any PDF document or online article, you can print it out and read it on paper.
Another option is to highlight the text in the PDF or online article and right-click (at least on a MAC) there is an option for the device to read it to you (not sure about PCs but google can help).
Finally for the discussion group instead of a written post you can always record an audio file (voice memo on iPhone) and attach it to your post as a file for others to listen to.
To graduate from the 200-Hour program you must:
Yes. We are a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance and have been for 10 years.
Pre-pandemic, Yoga Alliance required that “contact hours” be in-person, not online in order to receive the RYT 200 designation.

Successful graduates that meet and complete training requirements will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance at the 200-Hour level.
