How To Apply
Our application process works in two ways:
1) Attend one of our info sessions to meet Gina in person. If you've never taken class with Gina, we strongly recommend taking her class prior to the info session. This way, you'll know it's a good fit.
2) If you are unable to make one of the info sessions, you can also email us to schedule an in-person meeting with Gina. If you already take class with Gina on a regular basis, scheduling time before or after class is welcomed.
Tuition & Refund Policies
Once you are accepted into the program, a non-refundable $500 deposit will be due in order to reserve your spot. If choosing to pay in full by 1/13/24, refunds are permitted up to $500. If the applicant withdraws from the program after acceptance but before the program starts, the $500 deposit will be retained as a credit for future programs only (therefor can not be used towards studio credit). The program will not give any refunds or credits after the training starts. Tuition must be PAID IN FULL by March 4th.

Are there any prerequisites to a 200 hour teacher training?
No. However, it is highly recommended that you have a regular practice already before beginning a teacher training.
Is there a test to pass for certification?
There will be both a short, written test as well as a practical exam. The written test is designed to evaluate where you will need more support and does not determine your certification.The practical exam will require you to teach a 30 minute, well rounded yoga class to a group or your fellow students.
How do the E-Learning modules work?
Each week you will be assigned a section to study. This can be done at your own time and is meant as a convenience throughout your week. When we meet on Fridays, we will go over the module together. Expect being asked randomly and frequently what was covered in that week's module, so preparation is fundamental.
What if I miss a day or two of the training?
Don't stress, make-up sessions will be available. The full attendance policy will be given day 1 of your training, but feel free to contact us with any questions in regards to missed sessions.
Are payment plans available?
Yes! Please contact us directly to discuss your payment plan, however paying in full does offer a discount.
I really want to do this training, but I can't afford it. Do you offer financial aid?
Unfortunately we do not, but we may be able to offer a discount as part of our Karma Yogi work exchange program. Please contact us directly for more information.
