I’ve not practiced yoga for very long, is this training right for me?
It is recommended that you have practiced long enough to know that you are serious about learning yoga at an in depth level. Both the immersion and the training are a big investment of your time, money and energy so it’s important that you are sure this is what you would like to do. It is recommended that you have at least 2-3 years of vinyasa experience to make sure you are not still in the honeymoon phase with your practice. Please check out Steph’s youtube channel and do the videos there. These are basic, foundational videos so they will give you an idea of the minimum requirement.
Will I be ready to teach classes when I leave the training?
I personally do not believe 200 hours is enough time to learn what you need to be able hold space for others in a safe, honest, authentic way while honouring this sacred tradition. I believe 200 hours is the absolute minimum required for you to get a glimpse into what it takes to uphold the tradition within yourself and hold that potent space for others.
It is my suggestion that you approach this training having deeply thought about your commitment to yoga and understand that this is the first step in a long path to holding space for others in an embodied, informed way. My deepest intention with this training is to uphold the tradition of yoga while infusing it with the most authentic version of myself and translate that open, humble, committed students. If you are interested in a quick turn around certification program, this is not the training for you. I will however do everything I can to set you up for your journey with integrity, authenticity and courage.
I have a lot of experience practicing yoga, or teaching yoga, is this training right for me?
Yes! Please be aware this a foundation training and will be delivered to the level of new teachers. If you are already teaching yoga and want to learn how to teach vinyasa you are welcome on this training, however please be considerate that most people attending will have never taught yoga before.
I don’t have a lot of experience with vinyasa yoga specifically, should I be doing a vinyasa yoga teacher training?
It is recommended that you are aware of what vinyasa yoga is so you know what you will be learning to teach, or immersed in for many hours. Please check out some of my free videos on youtube to make sure you like my vinyasa style.
Who will be teaching this course and what is their experience?
The primary facilitator for this course is Steph Wall. Steph owns and teaches at The Kali Collective Yoga Studio in Glasgow, UK and has over 3000 hours of experience. She has almost 1000 hours of training and has taken many workshops to further her growth over the past 8 years.
I want to complete the entire training but can’t attend either Module 1 or Module 2, how can I receive the Yoga Teacher Training Certificate?
Both modules must be completed to receive your certificate. If you are able to attended only module one, perhaps because you live outside of the UK, please let Steph know. If there is a high enough demand a second Module 2 may be arranged in an intensive style to allow accommodate those who live out of Glasgow.
Is this program certified with Yoga Alliance?
YOGA ALLIANCE IS NOT A GOVERNING BODY. YOGA IS NOT REGULATED.
I am proud to say that after much courage towards going against the grain, I am now Yoga Alliance FREE. Although I do wish yoga was more regulated, I do not align with the efforts of these businesses to profit off a close minded, narrow view of how yoga should be regulated. It is against my integrity to support the white, middle class trying to govern an ancient tradition. Yoga Alliance are businesses set up in different countries (they are not one governing body), that act as regulators however they have huge gaps, lack follow through and perpetuate many things I disagree with in the yoga world. You do NOT need a yoga alliance certified course to be able to teach yoga. This training is NOT more credible with it being affiliated with YA. I am yet to hear of any studio or insurance company that want to see the YA logo. Your ticket to teaching and getting insured is the certificate you will receive from my school.
I am happy to discuss this more however I would recommend doing your own research.
