Attendance & Expectations:
The program runs Mon-Sat for 5 consecutive weeks. You will need to clear your schedule completely during this time.
We like to be flexible (wink), but the required hours for Yoga Alliance certification are strict. This is an accelerated course, designed for students whose schedules can't absorb a year-long YTT but who still want to earn a 200-hour RYT certification.
Students should be relatively fit and are expected to participate in two asana classes daily during the intensive. You will have some homework in the form of writing assignments. Prepare to commit 40 hours/week to the immersion.
HOW TO APPLY
Once we receive your application, we'll contact you for an interview.
