frequently asked questions
How much does the course cost and how do I register?
For information on the cost of the Yogananta training program and how to register go to the Tuition and Registration page or simply click on the link in one of the mini-menus at the top or bottom of this page.
Do I have to have been practicing yoga for a minimum number of years to be able to attend the course?
No. It is impossible to require of our participants some arbitrary number of years of prior practice. Two years solid practice would be a good number but cannot apply to everyone. What is requested however is that you have a felt sense of being in the body – what we might call ‘body awareness’. Ironically, newer students tend to do very well on the course since they are not contending with common patterns and habits that may be the result of previous practices.
May I attend the course if I do not intend on teaching yoga?
Yes. Only some students will be taking the course to obtain a certificate for teaching. The course material and the way in which it is presented will very much appeal to those interested in deepening an existing practice. The yogananta course helps to develop an individual’s personal practice, deepening his or her dialogue with the Inner Teacher. Our personal practice is led by intuition and deep studies, and often becomes the inspiration to teach.
Must I attend all the weekend sessions of the training?
We ask that students commit to the entire course, including all of the nine weekend sessions of the 200 hour program. It helps maintain a sense of cohesion and support for all the students throughout their journey. And yet with all of life’s curve balls and change there may be a necessary need to miss part or all of a weekend. In such cases, we'll work with you if possible to make up the lost practice.
What will be covered in this 200 hour course?
To see a loose outline of the course curriculum as it is taught the Yogananta program go here. The curriculum is rich and constantly evolves, and is never presented exactly the same way twice. It is not uncommon for students to repeat the course from time to time to review the curriculum as well as find out what’s new in its application.
