WHAT STYLE OF YOGA IS THE EMILY YOUNG TEACHER TRAINING?
This program is a vinyasa based school, teaching methods that balance precise instruction, detailed alignment, breath and fluid movement. The course begins by exploring the traditions of Hatha Yoga and the Eight Limbs of Yoga, then evolves to dissect the various application of vinyasa yoga practice to meet the needs of different minds and bodies.

We want to make sure that trainees have a basic foundation in the primary yoga postures before learning how to teach. If it appears that you do not have the necessary foundation, we will kindly guide you until you have this experience. Please be aware that each day includes a vigorous two + hour asana class.

WHAT IS THE YOGA ALLIANCE?
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 and globally. More and more yoga studios across 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.
WILL I BE QUALIFIED TO TEACH YOGA ONCE I COMPLETE THE 200-HOUR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM?
Yes! With the successful completion of all the requirements of the program, including contact hours, assessments and practicum, you will receive your Letter of Completion and Diploma evidencing your training at the 200-Hour Level. You may also register with the Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.org) at the RYT-200 level (Registered Yoga Teacher 200). Graduates of the 200-Hour program usually begin teaching in small studios, gyms, with private clientele (friends and family), etc.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO BE A TEACHER?
No problem! The 200-hour training is ideal for those who want to delve deeper into the study of yoga, and to improve their own practice. It’s also great for students who simply want to have a transformational experience and to be a part of our thriving Yoga Community.
WHAT ARE THE PRE-COURSE TASKS?
Following successful application, you will receive a series of tasks to complete before the residential. These are mostly based on developing or revising your knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
You will also be asked to keep a reflective yoga journal and may be encouraged to attend regular yoga practice. These tasks aim to start your learning journey, give you content to think about on and off the mat, and allow all learners to progress together more effectively when with tutors.
HOW AM I ASSESSED?
You will be assessed through a variety of methods that show your knowledge, understanding and application of yoga teaching practice. These include:
A Reflective Journal
A Critical Essay
