Is this a 300-hour Teacher Training program? No. This is a standalone Teacher Development course, completely online. It is, however, one component of a 300-hour teacher training with Christina. To learn more about Christina's 2020 300-hour training, contact us here.
How many Continuing Education credits is this worth? This program is eligible for 20 Continuing Education hours through Yoga Alliance.
Do I have to be on my computer at a certain time? No. This is a self-paced study within a group context. There are no scheduled calls to make. All lectures will be posted on a password protected area on the site and you can watch them when it suits your schedule. We will have a Q&A forum where we will respond to questions and where your classmates will also be able to share their experiences and insight. You can work through the material as quickly or as slowly as is right for you.
How do I know which tier to pick when I am registering? This program is a great value at every level of tuition. We also recognize that everyone has different financial circumstances. Additionally, students enroll in the program from across the world where economic circumstances vary greatly. In an effort to make these teachings available to as many people as possible and to support you in participating when funds are tight, we have created a tiered pricing scale. This is an honor-based sliding scale approach where you pick your tuition based on what you can afford. Please pay what you can. PLEASE NOTE: Each tier has access to the same information and services.
How advanced is advanced? Being advanced in asana is not a requirement for this program. Participants should have a good, strong intelligent relationship to practice and know how to modify and challenge themselves.
We are assuming that people have a foundation that is working in some way for them as teachers. We want to add to that foundation and help people refine their teaching in an authentic way but we do not want to give brand new teachers formulas and rules or bog people down with lots of stringent techniques that stifle their wisdom.
Is there homework or required reading? There will be homework suggestions but not required assignments. This is a self-paced study program, and while there will be commentary along the way, there are no assignments or due dates. Obviously, like with anything, the more you apply to your studies and homework the more personalized the information will become and the more you will benefit. Do what you can, as you can and you will gain a lot.
