ARE CLASSES INCLUDED IN MY TUITION?
Yes, a series of studio yoga classes is included in all training programs.
DO I NEED TO BE “GOOD” AT YOGA TO TAKE THIS PROGRAM?
The primary requirement is that you love yoga, practice yoga, and are committed to the journey. We suggest having at least a solid one-year yoga practice. If you have questions about your experience, we are happy to discuss them with you.
I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO YOGAMAYA, DO I NEED TO TAKE CLASSES BEFORE APPLYING?
We recommend taking classes with the Lead Instructors listed on our Teacher Training faculty page. If you are applying from out of town, you will have a phone call with Bryn, in addition to your application, before being accepted.
WHAT IF I NEED TO MISS A DAY OF TRAINING?
Attendance is required for all scheduled dates and times, and all other training requirements (like homework) must be completed on time in order to participate in the training and receive a certification. However, it is possible for an exception to be made with prior written approval or in the event of an emergency. We handle all requests on an individual basis. Please note that there are no refunds for missed training dates and that missed hours must be made up within the specified timeframe with approved teachers and at your own expense and that absences may result in an automatic voluntary withdrawal from training without refund. Please refer to the Student Agreement in the application for more information.
ARE THERE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS TO THE TIMES LISTED ON THE CALENDAR?
Yes, you will have written homework, required readings, mentor and buddy meetings, and assigned studio classes – all to help crystallize and consolidate the material covered during weekend sessions.
WHAT IS A MENTOR AND A BUDDY?
Your mentor is a Yogamaya teacher who will personally help you along the way, review your homework and meet at scheduled intervals with your smaller group of trainees. Your buddy is another trainee we match you with. You will have meetings to practice teach, work on homework, discuss yoga, and fulfill other teaching assignments.
WILL I BE ABLE TO TEACH A YOGA CLASS WHEN I GRADUATE?
Yes. The degree to which you are proficient will correlate to how much time and energy you dedicate to the training. You will have substantial practice teaching during the training to prepare you for teaching real people in the real world.
IS THERE A PAYMENT PLAN?
Yes, there are payment plan options for all of our training schedules.
CAN I SUBMIT MY APPLICATION WITHOUT A PAYMENT?
No. Some form of payment, deposit or full tuition, must accompany your application. Your application is your commitment to the training and your agreement to our Terms & Conditions of the Training. We will not review an application that is incomplete. A complete application includes a completed & submitted application and either your deposit for full tuition payment. If we deny your application, you will receive 100% of your money back.
