Am I ready to do my Yoga Teacher training?
Although Yoga Alliance typically recommends a minimum of 1-year of regular practice, we invite those who have a keen ability to learn and are equally motivated to start their Yoga journey with the right knowledge and skills before practising full-time.
To start your journey here will allow you to get the most out of your personal Yoga practice, regardless of whether or not you want to teach. This program is very much about self-development.
We assess each student's readiness, and mentor each individual from their initial enquiry, to their first class and beyond! Just reach out and have a chat.
Should I do my YTT online or in person?
Our thoughts and advice...
Yoga Alliance International does not condone, nor allow their registered training providers to operate via pre-recorded, online YTTs.
This is simply to guarantee that teachers are of a high standard when it comes to managing real bodies, in real time. They allow up to 10% of the hours to be online, hence why you have a 20HR online module with our program.
We hold the same belief as Yoga Alliance International, that pre-recorded training cannot provide the practical skills, appropriate assessments and student-teacher support that is required to develop a competent, safe teacher.
It's vital that there is the application of theory - we cannot simply learn from a textbook or lecture and hope for the best. Application is key, which you will get on this program.
