What style of Yoga is the Full Circle Yoga School Teacher Training?

 

At Full Circle Yoga School, we teach Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga. You will also learn elements of Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, and Trauma Informed Yoga.

How proficient in Yoga do I have to be to do the Full Circle Yoga School Teacher Training?

 

We ask that you have a minimum of 3-6 months of experience with yoga, however, we've had students with less experience than that complete very successfully. You can be at any level in your physical asana practice. We create a safe and open learning space for all students to grow in their personal practice, enhancing their future teaching style to have access to teach to an all levels class. We have had students with injuries, disabilities, and health conditions successfully complete our trainings. We want students to journey on with correct alignment and to avoid injury. We would rather someone with less experience complete our training so they can learn these crucial elements rather than waiting for more experience thus putting themselves at risk of injury.

How many students are enrolled in each Teacher Training at one time?

 

At Full Circle Yoga School, we intend to keep groups to a maximum of 15-20 people depending on location.

This ensures that students are able to receive personalized one to one mentoring with the facilitators. 

On average, we have between 7-12 students per training. You can contact us to learn which months have smaller group sizes as we do notice changes based on seasons.

How many hours of yoga do we practice a day?

 

Students will have a daily 90 minutes of morning practice, practice during Practice Teaching, and some evening practices. Asana Lab is an interactive workshop and there will be poses that are practiced during that time to adjust, align and understand the structure of each posture. Asana labs typically are 2 hours long followed with hands on adjustment practices and practice teaching. Our anatomy classes are also interactive to learn the patterns of the muscles during a yoga class and students are able to visualize and understand the movements that are created through cues.

Are there any days off during the Yoga Teacher Training courses?

 

As this is a true immersion of 200 hours in 15 days, you will not have a day off. If you book our Bali training which is 21 days you will have every 6th day off for a total of 3 days off during training. The hours are very important to ensure your completion for registering as Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Yoga Teacher. Please contact us about staying extra days to site see and have time to enjoy the beauty of your location.

Are you a Yoga Alliance Registered School (RYS)?

Yes, Full Circle Yoga School is a registered Yoga Alliance school. After completion of your training, you will be  able to register with Yoga Alliance to become a RYT (registered yoga teacher). We highly recommend looking our school up on Yoga Alliance as well as any school you are considering. Some schools claim to be certified and are not. Yoga Alliance reviews can not be deleted or altered by the school. If a school has stars but no written reviews on Yoga Alliance it is because the school has chosen to not allow the words written by students to show. We feel this is a red flag. Make sure your school choices have been thoroughly researched and that you can read written reviews as this is the best and most accurate way to gain insight on what it's like to a student in your training.

Do you offer payment plans?

 

We do offer long term and short term payments on tuition, we set up a monthly payment plan that is to be completed prior to the arrival date of the training. If other arrangements need to be made we are able to extend in certain circumstances. Lodging and meal plan fees are to be paid prior to your arrival date unless you've made special arrangements.

What is Full Circle Yoga School’s Refund and Cancellation Policy?


We have a page dedicated to our refund and cancellation policies. Please DO read it in its entirety before your training.
