frequently asked questions

Will this count toward continuing education?

Yes! For Yoga Alliance:

  • Teaching Yoga to Athletes and Sequencing Yoga Classes from Welcome to Namaste count as 30 YACEP hours
  • Professionalism for Movement Teachers counts as 10 hours
  • Classroom Management and Safety counts as 8 hours
  • Teaching Yoga Beyond the Poses, the Workshop Workshop, and the Content Workshop offer 6 hours

When does the course start?

Whenever you like! These are asynchronous courses, so you can begin and move through on your own timeline.

Is there a timeframe for completion?

You can do this all on your own schedule—that’s the beauty of the online format. If you’re on the certification track of Teaching Yoga to Athletes, I’m happy to help set you a timetable and nudge you. Some of us do better with oversight and deadlines!

Is there a payment plan?

Yes, for Teaching Yoga to Athletes, you may choose to pay in full ($2497) or to make 12 monthly payments of $249.

The other courses cost less and don’t have payment plans, but they are always available, so they’ll be waiting for you when you are ready to pay in full.

What’s your refund policy?

If you aren’t completely satisfied with the content of the online courses, we offer a full refund within one week of purchase, so please be sure to log in right away and be sure the course content meets your needs.

Is this all I need to take or do to be a yoga teacher?

Certainly not! Good teachers can come from a variety of trainings and backgrounds, including online yoga teacher trainings and in-person trainings, but the feature they all share is a commitment to continuing education. A good teacher is never done learning.

One typical path in the United States is to start with a 200-hour yoga teacher training. We offer one at my studio, Carrboro Yoga Company. You can surely find in-person options local to you as well as online yoga teacher training options.

But that is not the only way to be a good teacher! For more on the system of teacher training, read:

And you’ll get my full take on trainings in The Professional Yoga Teacher’s Handbook.

Will this count toward my 200-hour yoga teacher training?

Maybe, if your program has officially added them. These courses will help you build professional skills and, in the case of Teaching Yoga to Athletes, specialize in the niche of yoga for athletes. If they are not part of your 200-hour training, they serve well as an add-on to complement your original training. And you can certainly count them as continuing education credits.

Will this count toward my 200-hour yoga teacher training?

Will this count toward my 500-hour yoga teacher training?

Maybe. Talk to your 500-hour program director. I’m happy to answer any questions they have.

Could I use these in the yoga teacher training I lead?

Please do! I offer a group discount for yoga teacher trainings and groups of 10+. For bulk purchases, I also offer a one-hour videoconference Q&A with your group to discuss what you learned. Write me to get started: info@sagerountree.com.
