WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT INNER YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
If you’re considering a destination yoga teacher training in Bali we’ve answered some common questions that will make the decision easier for you to join a 200-hour YTT with Inner Yoga.
- WHY DO A YOGA TEACHER TRAINING ONLINE?
Our online yoga teacher training allows you to learn at your own pace and complete your training around your family and other commitments. There’s no need to take time away from home, your family or your job. Being a self-paced online yoga teacher training means you can pause and rewind course content as many times as you want, until you get a perfect understanding of the poses and concepts taught. And you can go back to the course content even after you graduate!
- HOW DO I GET SUPPORT DURING THE TRAINING?
Throughout the course you will have access to your teachers and fellow students via the course platform as well as weekly live Zoom calls with your teachers and fellow students. This is an opportunity to ask questions, connect in person with others on the course and clarify any aspects that you might be struggling with. There is also a private Inner Yoga Academy Facebook Group. We’re also happy to answer any questions by email, WhatsApp or Zoom. We are only a click away and really want you to enjoy your training experience. Even when you graduate the support doesn’t end. As a member of the growing Inner Yoga tribe, we will remain available to support you throughout your yoga career.
- HOW WILL I BE EVALUATED DURING THE TRAINING?
During the course, there will be weekly live sessions with the teachers where you can ask questions and meet others on the same journey from around the world. Your teachers will also provide regular feedback on your practice and progress when they view your submitted videos. At the end of each module there will be quizzes and an essay to complete to make sure you understand the concepts covered. The beauty of being online is you can always go back and review any content before taking the quiz.
- WHEN DOES THE COURSE START AND FINISH?
The course is a completely self-paced online curriculum which you get access to as soon as you enrol. We have provided start dates every month so you can pace yourself with the other students who are following the course and come together as a group during the live weekly calls. You will have up until 31st December to complete the training.
- WILL I BE ABLE TO REGISTER WITH YOGA ALLIANCE?
In order to register with Yoga Alliance, you must complete the online course before December 31st 2021. This date has been set by Yoga Alliance in response to the global pandemic and its impact on the in-person delivery of trainings.
- HOW LONG CAN I ACCESS THE COURSE FOR?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for 1 year across any and all devices you own which means you can go back over any module at any time.
- I’M NOT SURE IF I WANT TO TEACH, CAN I STILL DO A TEACHER TRAINING?
Absolutely! Our 200-hour online yoga teacher training programis open to anyone who wants to deepen their own practice, gain more knowledge about this ancient science or go onto teaching. Yoga offers a complete science in how to live a better, more healthy and holistic life and we are happy to share this with anyone. A lot of our students who sign up aren’t sure if they will teach or not but on completion of the online program, are inspired to share their knowledge with others. It opens a new perspective for you and you learn so much about yourself along the way.
- WILL I BE ABLE TO START TEACHING RIGHT AFTER THE COURSE?
Yes! From early on in the online training program we will ask you to submit practice teaching videos for feedback and tips. You will finish the training knowing how to sequence a class, project your voice and offer adjustments safely. We also have a module covering the ethics of being a yoga teacher and look at the business side of yoga so you will be equipped with the tools you need to start teaching straight awa, whether it’s online or in-person.
- HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE THERE IN AN ONLINE TRAINING?
We like to keep our numbers smaller to ensure that you have plenty of time with teachers including 1:1 Zoom calls. There will be a maximum of 25 students each month.
- WHAT IS THE RATIO OF VINYASA YOGA TO YIN YOGA?
Inner Yoga was developed with the idea of creating the balance between an active Yang practice (Vinyasa) and a slower more meditative Yin practice. Over the total training, the ratio is about approximately 60% Vinyasa focused and 40% Yin however we are always looking to balance one within the other. Our online yoga training program also focuses on asana, bandha, mudra, pranayama, mantra, meditation, anatomy and yoga philosophy.
- HOW MANY TEACHERS ARE THERE?
Inner Yoga has a core team of teachers who have dedicated their lives to yoga teachings. They come from all over the world and have a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. There is one Lead Teacher for Vinyasa, one Lead Teacher for Yin, an anatomy teacher, a yoga philosophy teacher and a guest teacher for TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). By having a variety of specialist teachers for different modules means that you have experts in each field rather than generalized yoga teachers who teach a bit of everything. You will also experience a wide perspective of teaching methods and ideas.
- WHAT DOES THE INNER YOGA TEACHER TRAINING COVER?
Our 200-hour yoga training courseprovides a strong foundation that will enable you to sequence and teach safely and effectively both a Vinyasa yoga class and a Yin yoga class. You will have a sound understanding of how the body works so that you can help with alignment and correct student postures as well as be more aware in your own practice. We will also cover in depth other aspects of the yoga tradition including history and philosophy. Please see our curriculum page for further details.
- WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO PASS THE COURSE?
Inner Yoga is an accredited 200-hour yoga schoolwith Yoga Alliance. As such, you will need to complete all online modules of the training. There are also quizzes at the end of each module but you can attempt these any number of times to pass. You will need to submit a written assignment and a video of you teaching according to set criteria that will be given to you towards the end of the training. The teaching video will see you plan and deliver a 90-minute class combining bot Vinyasa and Yin. Don’t worry there will be plenty of live practice teaching along the way so that you can confidently do this.
