How do I apply?

Use our online application and then in the date section above click on the date of the program you desire and pay at a minimum the $325 non-refundable deposit as you select full tuition or scholarship.


IS FULL TUITION PAYMENT REQUIRED PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING DATE OF TEACHER TRAINING?

Yes, full payment is required before the date that Teacher Training begins.


How do I complete all 200 hours required for certification?

The hours of the scheduled sessions completes the “direct contact” hours required by Yoga Alliance. The additional hours to complete the 200 hour requirement are met by attending a required number of yoga classes during the weeks of Teacher Training, observing a required number of yoga classes, and completing post-Teacher Training requirements which include teaching a required number of classes.


What happens if I miss any of the scheduled sessions?

In order to satisfy the requirements of the “direct contact” hours with our Teaching Training faculty you may complete the missed sessions in one of these ways.

  • After Teacher Training is finished you may schedule a “private” session with a faculty member to review the material that was missed.  This “private” session will be charged  at the current Private Session studio rate of the studio and will need to be paid prior to the session being scheduled. If other students missed the same session and material you may combine together to schedule a shared session at the studio’s shared private session rate; or
  • You can sit in for the session(s) you missed when it is scheduled at the next Teacher Training session at no additional cost.

If I complete Purple Yoga’s Teacher Training program can I become a teacher at Purple Yoga?

Purple Yoga will audition for teaching positions at the time we anticipate adding additional faculty to our teaching staff.  We encourage all who complete our program, and have a desire to begin teaching yoga, to seek out all the opportunities to teach that exist in the communities where you live; i.e. community centers, health and wellness facilities, gyms and fitness centers, and other yoga studios.
