Q: Will I be qualified to teach yoga once I complete the 200-hour training?
A: Yes! You will receive a Yoga Alliance RYT200 certificate upon completion of training. With this certificate, you may register with Yoga Alliance at the RYT200 level.

Q: What if I don’t want to be a teacher?
A: We designed this training to inspire not just yoga teachers, but those on the path to greater self-awareness. You’ll leave this course with a deeper understanding of your body, mind, and spirit- whether you express this as a teacher or a yoga leader is up to you!

Q: What style of yoga will I learn during training?
A: Our teacher training is a vinyasa-based school that teaches a method that balances precise instruction, detailed alignment, breath, and movement.

Q: How proficient in yoga do I need to be to participate in the training?
A: We recommend that you have a minimum of six months of consistent yoga practice before enrolling.

Q: How much time will I need to devote to homework?
A: You can expect to have 2-3 hours of homework between sessions.

Q: What happens if I miss a day or a session?
A: Yoga Alliance requires that you complete all 200 hours of the teacher training. However, we understand that conflicts arise, so we have developed a make-up policy to help you satisfy this requirement. If you miss a day or session, you will be required to make up the missed hours with a paid private session with a lead instructor within one year. A 1-hour private session equals 1-4 hours of missed teacher training time. The cost of a private session is $80 per hour.

Q: Do you offer a refund if I do not complete the training?
A: No.

Q: What should I do if I still have questions?
A: Send us an email and we’ll get in touch with you ASAP: weyogasandpoint@gmail.com
