REPUBLIC OF YOGA
200-HOUR TEACHER TRAINING
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I’m not very good at yoga. Can I take the teacher training program?
Yes! One of the best ways to get “good” at yoga, is to learn the ‘what,’ ‘how’ and ‘why’ of Hatha Yoga. Being “good” at yoga does not mean that you have a perfect headstand! With a clear understanding of how yoga works, the fundamentals of yoga asana and philosophy, you will advance your own practice, and be empowered to share this knowledge with others.”
I’ve only been practicing for a short time. Can I take the training?
Yes! If you’re hungry for the information, regardless of how long you’ve been practicing, you’re ready. Some of the best teachers took a teacher training very early into their practice. If you have a strong commitment and a sincere desire to learn, and are eager to absorb the material, you are a great candidate.
I don’t want to be a yoga teacher. Should I still take the training?
That depends. Do you want to learn more about yoga? Some students take the training exclusively for the information and the development of their own practice and skills. For many, this will be the beginning of a life-changing course of events. Your asana practice will improve dramatically, and by the end of the training, you may just want to share some of this information with others.
Do I have to be there for the entire training?
For the sake of continuity, you are strongly discouraged from missing any part of the course. Missed sessions must be made up to receive a certificate from Republic of Yoga.
How do I make up missed lectures/sessions?
Depending on the content and length of the missed material, a make-up session during the time frame of the current course schedule may be arranged, at an additional cost of $100/hour. Alternatively, the make-up could be completed in a future program. We will email you before the next 200 Hour TT Program begins with a complete schedule of the sessions. If you are unable to make up the required lectures in the very next TT program, it is your responsibility to follow up with us and request a schedule for future programs. If the cost of the 200 hour program increases from your original training fee, you may be required to pay to make up the difference in cost.
How do I register?
Fill out an application online, or submit it at the studio. Your $300 deposit secures a spot in the program and is non-refundable & non-transferable (it will be returned if your application is not accepted).
What is the refund policy for Teacher Training Programs?
The full cost of the Program is non-refundable and non-transferable if my participation is cancelled within 30 days of the start of the Program or once the Program has commenced. However, the originally paid fee can be applied as payment for a training program to be held within 2 years of the original. A $300 fee will be assessed. The student must attend all sessions of the new program even if some sessions had been attended prior to the cancellation.
