Discipline is the main pillar of success in becoming a true yogi. As such, we expect you to attend each class with attentiveness although we certainly understand listening to what your body tells you. Any absences from class must be notified in writing. If you miss a class you must make up the extra hours in your own time, you can arrange with class mate or teacher to go through what you have missed.
In order to graduate the program you must be paid in full and fulfil the following requirements:
– Attendance of all in-class teacher training sessions
– Successful completion of homework and take-home final exams (don’t worry, you will be will prepared!)
– Participation in a final in-class practice teaching practicum
Expect to spend approximately 5 hours a week on homework. The homework is designed to cover the 20 non-contact hours. It supports the material covered in class and help you integrate what is presented into your own practice and teaching.
This assessment includes both a written and practical teaching exam which will be evaluated by your lead teacher.
You will have approximately 4 hours of practical classes per day within your course. You may attend other classes outside the scheduled hours depending on space availability and does not include any special events or workshops. Depending on availability classes are free for one month after teacher training in exchange for class teaching & assisting and/or marketing projects.
Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings in the US. More and more yoga studios around the world are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 500-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher. The Nomad Yoga Trainings are approved at the Yoga Alliance 200-Hour under our sister school Rishikul Yogashala.
