TRAINING & CERTIFICATION
LEAPING LOTUS 200 hr YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
LLWS is always evolving. I’ve been thinking about how to offer my next YTT. Since Yoga Alliance has approved fully virtual teacher trainings going forward, I decided to offer my YTT in modules. This is a new way I’m offering this training program. This came about because I’ve listened to so many people express their love and curiosity about yoga in all different ways. Also, not everyone wants to be a yoga teacher, but they want to deepen their understanding for their own personal knowledge. So, I thought if I made this training more accessible to people, we can build a community to support each other and humanity. This gives everyone the option to go for the full certification or just take modules that interest them. Certificates of Completion are provided after completion of each module. In order to receive full certification all modules and any additional requirements must be completed. The full 200hr program is accredited by Yoga Alliance.
This is going to be something really special! This teacher training program will give you a solid foundation for teaching adaptable yoga classes that are safe and enjoyable for everyone. This program will be virtual with some in-person options. If you are interested in enrolling in the program, please fill out the application packet and email it to Lina at email@example.com
I have broken down the program into 2 categories:
Module Workshop with Certificate of Completion
A certification will allow you to teach the course material. This credential will allow you to register with Yoga Alliance as a 200hr. Yoga Teacher. You will be able to refer to yourself, as a 200hr. Yoga Teacher.
A Certificate of Completion shows that you have completed a workshop with LLWS and have met any requirements for that module. It can be used towards YA continuing Education requirements. A Certificate of Completion does not authorize the person to refer to themselves as a Yoga Teacher, and the certificate cannot be registered with YA.
If at any point, a Module student would like to convert to become a Full Certification Student, the individual can certainly do that.
FULL CERTIFICATION REQUIRMENTS:
Completion of all modules is required for full certification.
Written tests must be submitted
Demonstration of proper class format and teaching skills
Understanding of all course material
MODULE WORKSHOP WITH CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION
In order to receive a certificate of completion, student must attend the entire module, and complete any required reading or course work pertaining to that module.
