DRAGONFLY YOGA STUDIO
200-HOUR REGISTERED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS RYT?
RYT stands for Registered Yoga Teacher, it is a designation assigned by Yoga Alliance, which is the professional organization that governs our Teacher Training Program.
I’M NOT VERY GOOD AT YOGA. CAN I TAKE THE TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM?
Yes! One of the best ways to get “good” at yoga, is to learn the ‘what,’ ‘how’ and ‘why’ of yoga. Being “good” at yoga does not mean that you have a perfect headstand! With a clear understanding of the breadth of yoga, the fundamentals of yoga poses and philosophy, you will advance your own practice, and be empowered to share this knowledge with others.
I’VE ONLY BEEN PRACTICING FOR A SHORT TIME. CAN I TAKE THE TRAINING?
Yes! If you’re hungry for the information, regardless of how long you’ve been practicing, you’re ready. Some of the best teachers took a teacher training very early into their practice. If you have a strong commitment and a sincere desire to learn, you are a great candidate. Before training begins, we highly recommend you take a minimum of 10 yoga classes at Dragonfly.
I DON’T WANT TO BE A YOGA TEACHER. SHOULD I STILL TAKE THE TRAINING?
That depends. Do you want to learn more about yoga? Some students take the training exclusively for the information and the development of their own practice and skills. For many, this will be the beginning of a life-changing course of events. Your asana practice will improve dramatically, and by the end of the training, you may find that you want to share some of this information with others.
DO I HAVE TO BE THERE FOR THE ENTIRE TRAINING?
For the sake of continuity, you are strongly discouraged from missing any part of the course. Missed sessions must be made up to fulfill Yoga Alliance’s certification requirements and to receive a completion certificate from Dragonfly Yoga Studio.
HOW DO I MAKE UP MISSED LECTURES/SESSIONS?
Students may miss up two full training days for emergencies only and still achieve graduation requirements. If more training hours are missed, a make-up session during the time frame of the current course schedule may be arranged, at an additional cost. Alternatively, the make-up could be completed in a future program. We will email you before the next 200 Hour TT Program begins with a complete schedule of the sessions. If you are unable to make up the required lectures in the very next TT program, it is your responsibility to follow up with us and request a schedule for future programs. If the cost of the 200 hour program increases from your original training fee, you may be required to pay to make up the difference in cost. The student may be required to attend all sessions of the new program even if some sessions had been attended prior to the cancellation.
HOW DO I APPLY?
First, introduce yourself to us at the Studio, take a minimum of 10 yoga classes, then request an application. Your deposit secures a spot in the next training and is non-refundable & non-transferable (it will be returned if your application is not accepted).
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY FOR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS?
The full cost of the program is non-refundable and non-transferable. This is a commitment we take seriously, so should you.
WILL I ENJOY THE TRAINING?
Yes! Yes! Yes!
