What Type of Yoga Can I Teach after Completing the Teacher Training?
Graduates from our 200-hour yoga certification program are able to teach (Hatha) Vinyasa for students of all levels. Because of our empowered teaching methodology, intelligent sequencing and focus on body mechanics, our yoga teacher training develops teachers who have the technical skill and capacity to safely and effectively teach and inspire their students. As a Yoga Alliance Accredited School, you can rest assured that the training and certification you receive through Lahari Teacher Training is respected and recognized by the yoga community.
Is an Online Yoga Teacher Training approved by the Yoga Alliance? Yes, because of the pandemic Yoga Alliance has allowed current Registered Yoga Schools to teach their Yoga Teacher Training completely online.
What if I Miss a Session? Am I Able to Make it Up at a Later Date?
Our 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 2 sessions. Attendance and participation in the practice teaching days (of which there are 4 throughout the program), is required for certification. In the event a student misses a practice teaching day, a make-up session must be scheduled and payment of $75 for session is required.
Do I Have to Be An "Advanced" Yoga Student to Take the Training?
No, not at all! Our training is about diving deeper into the study and practice of yoga. Anyone interested in learning more about yoga will get a lot of value from this experience.
What are the Benefits of Teacher Training Beyond Certification?
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.
What If I Am Not Sure I Want to Teach Yoga?
About 40% of students who sign up for our teacher training program have no intention of teaching. Many students enroll in teacher training to further develop their own personal practice of yoga and learn more about themselves and this tradition.
