Yoga Teacher Training FAQs 

 

   

REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND OUR TRAINING:
  • • Must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Must have reliable transportation.
  • Our training is very physically intensive. Trainees must be physically and mentally fit to attend 2 intense hot yoga sessions and several hours of training per day.
  • Must come into the program with an open mind and willingness to learn.
  • 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training has additional requirements – please ask for more details.

STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAM:


Week 1: Receive your course binder.
You will learn how to organize the binder into the following categories:

  • Teaching Methods/Techniques
  • Asanas (Poses) – organized by general properties
  • Anatomy
  • Yoga Philosophy/History
  • Reference
  • Circuit Training 

 

Week 1-6: Receive handouts/workbook/ reading materials.

  • Receive course materials and organize your binder.
  • By the end of week 6, you’ll be equipped with broad general yoga and circuit training knowledge. This does not make you an expert on yoga – RYT200 instruction will give you a solid knowledge base to build on.
  • Think of RYT200 as an undergraduate degree in yoga. Getting certified as RYT200 is not the end of your journey, it’s the beginning. As teachers and graduates of YTT programs, we continue to learn new things every day. 

HOURS BREAKDOWN:

• 180 Hours Training Hours at Arrichion

Estimated 180 hours will be spent during the 6 weekends of training (plus weekly homework).

• 50 Hours Post-training/Research/Externship Hours

After the last day of training, you’ll receive series of projects/research/assignments to complete before you attain your RYT200 certification.

Please note: Internship/Teaching positions at Arrichion are not guaranteed. This is why we offer a general training that can be applied outside Arrichion 

TRAINING PROGRAM PERKS

  • Work with experienced trainers and coaches at Arrichion.
  • Participate in creative, fun workshops.
  • Learn hands-on techniques.
  • Take lots of classes to get in shape, both mentally and physically.
  • Learn to work as a team with your fellow trainees.
  • Deepen your own practice.
  • Learn various yoga poses, how to break them down, and how to teach each pose and give verbal and physical adjustments,
  • Create a 30-minute yoga class of your own.
  • Free CPR/AED/First Aid training, with the option to be certified (for additional fee).
  • Free unlimited yoga during the 6 weeks of training (if you’re already paying for Arrichion classes on auto-debit, your payments will be put on hold and adjusted during your 6-week training).  

HAVING A SUCCESSFUL TRAINING EXPERIENCE

  • Make the commitment now. We all have personal obligations (work, family, friends, pets). You’ll spend a lot of time at Arrichion during your 6-weekend training period. Please make appropriate arrangements with your work, families, and pet sitters (don’t forget about your furry friends!)
  • Keep your energy levels up. The training is physically and mentally demanding. Please prepare snacks and meals to bring to training, and stay hydrated. Bring extra water, electrolyte drinks, and/or coconut water (use caffeine with caution).
  • Bring multiple changes of clothes. This is Arrichion. You’ll sweat a lot when you take classes and participate in workshops (even when the room is not heated). You’ll be more comfortable afterwards in dry, comfortable clothing.
  • Bring warm clothes. While the studio is heated, we will have colder fall/winter/spring weather during the training. There will be sessions/lessons where you’ll mainly sit and study/observe. Stay warm by bringing jackets, sweatshirts, and socks (or leg warmers).
  • Stay positive! Arrichion is about a supportive, positive group experience. Nothing brings group morale down like negative attitudes and comments.
  • Be prepared for each lesson. Do your homework!
  • Keep us (Arrichion staff) in the loop. We like to reach out to every trainee before/during/after training. Don’t be afraid to ask questions!
