The main standers are set by the yoga Alliance and they include:

Will I need to do homework?

Yes, you are expected to set aside about 30 minutes each day for your own practice and study the required texts and practice teaching with friends or /and family.

What happens if there is a snowstorm during a training weekend?

If this happens we may cancel part of the training but will try to keep most of the schedule intact and then make every possible effort to accommodate a makeup time for missed hours that can fit into everyone’s schedule.

What if I get sick and miss a training weekend?

Time missed will need to be made up. We will work with the individual student to help with the content missed. If one on one contact hours are needed, there will be a $50 per hour charge.
