We know that deciding which program to choose is challenging. We believe in transparency and have addressed potential questions you may have. This is a great way to decide if this is the program for you. Here are the answers to our most frequently asked questions.
In this changing climate, is online programming now recognized with Yoga Alliance?
This is the question on everyone's mind. The short answer is, YES! Yoga Alliance (USA) is now approving all registrations until December 31, 2020.
This means that if you register for our training before December 31st, 2020, you will receive Yoga Alliance Approved Certification ~ you do not need to finish the program by then, just be enrolled.
We don't know, yet, what will happen after December 31, 2020. However, Yoga Alliance is at a crossroads; they understand that live, in-person programming is no longer accessible, affordable or equitable for every student. In all honesty, it never was. The global COVID crisis has made this very apparent. Schools all over the globe are petitioning Yoga Alliance to change the mandate immediately, to approve online programming, permanently. Without these changes, Yoga Alliance, itself, may become irrelevant.
We have been a Registered School with Yoga Alliance since January, 2010 (we began our school under the name Yogacara and we have since become Your Yoga Flow), and within that time, we have been advocates for the exact changes that are happening now. Yoga Alliance accepts registrations from students all over the world, including Canada, USA, Asia, Europe and more. View our current status as a Registered Yoga School (RYS 200).
For students in the United Kingdom, this program is recognized with Yoga Alliance Professional UK.
Is this course suitable for beginners or people without any yoga experience?
No, this program is for students who have already been teaching or have completed their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.
Do I need to be fluent in English?
We welcome students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. All students should be fairly fluent in the English language (reading, writing & speaking).
What styles of yoga will I be certified to teach?
You will be certified in both advanced Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga. In addition, you will be certified to teach all programs included in your bundle option. For example, if Yin Yoga is part of your bundle, you will also be able to teach Yin Yoga.
Will I receive a yoga teacher training certificate after completing this course?
Upon successful completion, you will receive an official 300 Hour Teacher Training Certificate. You will also receive certificates for each individual program.
Will I be able to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500 Hour teacher, once I complete this?
Yes, you will provide them with this certification and register or upgrade to a 500HR RYT designation. Note, if you did not complete your 200 Hour training with a Registered Yoga School, that is a member of Yoga Alliance, they will not approve the 500HR designation. They require that all programs are completed with Registered Yoga Schools (RYS).
Can I take this course if I have completed another school's 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training?
Absolutely! Once you enroll, we will ask you to email us a copy of your certificate. If you have taken your 200 Hour with us, we have it on file already.
How do evaluations and assessments work?
Each program within your bundle has its own evaluation and assessment. These vary for each program. It is a good idea to review each individual program that is within the bundle, to see what the specifics are.
Will my teaching certificate be recognized, globally?
Absolutely! We have students from the U.K., Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Canada, U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Spain and more!
Do I automatically graduate, or receive a certificate if I pay for the course?
No. In order to successfully graduate from any training program we offer, you must successfully meet the graduation criteria.
No need to be anxious. All items on each evaluation will be covered in advance and our goal is to ensure you are prepared. Your success is our success!
If I am pregnant, can I take this program?
Many of our students are pregnant or planning to have a child soon. We begin each program with a clear outline of what modifications need to happen Yours and your baby's well-being is our first priority.
What does self-paced, on demand learning mean?
What this means is that the program does not require any group study, or attending particular tutorials at specific points in the training. You set the pace for your learning. You move through the curriculum when and as you want. Students can go back and review sections as many times as needed. The entire program is pre-recorded so that it is on demand, available to you, always.
When I go to purchase the course, I notice a price difference. Why is that?
If you are in the UK or the EU, there will be an automatic addition for the VAT taxes. The system recognizes that your devices' IP address is located in these countries. Because of tax treaty laws, we cannot amend that. If you are in other areas, such as Canada or the US, there will be a different tax applied, depending on where you are located. Certain jurisdictions, do not have taxes. Also, any and all taxes collected are on behalf of the governments, and do not come to us directly; they are remitted immediately, to the applicable tax agency.
Why do prices vary so much from one school to another?
This is an excellent observation! We know that price points vary all around the globe; from $500 to $3,000. Because these are not live, in person trainings, any school that charges in excess of $1,000 is selling at an unethical price ~ they know it, and so should you. As you review programs, you will know where you feel most comfortable. We always say, listen to your intuition, it is never wrong.
Are there any live sessions in the program?
No, the entire program is on demand. However, if it will help a student's learning, we are always open for video calls and discussion.
Once I begin the program, how long do I have to complete it?
This is the beauty of online yoga teacher training. It is a completely self-paced program - you decide when you start and when you finish. Ideally, working through the program without large gaps in time works best, but we appreciate that life is complicated.
How long will it take me to complete the program?
This is up to you. Because it is self-paced, it really depends on your availability.
Does my access to the digital course materials expire?
Your access never expires, and you can continue to utilize all the course materials for as long as you like. The program offers many great resources for when you start teaching. For example, liability waivers. preparing your resume and more! And, as we make updates to our program, you will have access to the updated version.
If my digital access never expires, why am I required to join the online yoga class streaming platform?
The online streaming platform, at $6 USD per month, is a tool we use while you are actively engaged in the program. A very small percentage (2%-3%) of the program is accessed via this platform. Once you have completed the program, you are free to cancel that. You can also place your access on hold at any time you are taking a break from your training program. Most students find the platform extremely helpful after they have completed the program, but the choice is yours!
What if I am unsuccessful in my evaluations?
While this happens very rarely, we will work with you and address areas of concern, and then you will try again. You will not need to pay program fees again.
Do you offer payment plans?
