You should have an established and consistent yoga practice. You don’t need to be able to hold headstand, handstands, or do “advanced” poses.

You don’t even have to have previous experience teaching. However, this is a teacher training that focuses on teaching skills: class sequencing, workshops, retreats, and presentations. Please show up with an open mind and be willing to practice these things.

In our previous 300 hour training, we had student teachers with a range of teaching experience from zero to thousands of hours. Ultimately, we feel that this enhances the training and allows for a broad range of topics, scenarios, and possibilities to be discussed throughout the course.

Yes, you have Sundays off! We will have access to a van for group exploration of local villages and beaches, and we can arrange taxi service if you wish to head out on your own.

Our farmhouse is located just 10 minutes drive from the Ionian Sea coast. In 15 minutes you can reach tourist destinations such as the natural reserve of Vendicari, Marzamemi, Porto Palo di Capopassero, L’isole delle Correnti, and the village of San Lorenzo.

You’re also welcome to simply relax on the farm. The usual daily meals will be included on Sundays.

We will follow all of the rules of our host country that are in place at the time of the training. However, it’s hard to know what those might be at this time.

This past September (2021), covid conditions improved considerably. We really believe that this is a trend that will continue in 2022. We’re better at preventing it, better at treating it, and better at living with it as a thing that exists in our world.

Yes!

You absolutely should get travel insurance. This will protect your investment in the event that something happens that prevents you from going.

It doesn’t cost a lot, and it can save you a tremendous headache.

Please read this further information on travel insurance and why we highly recommend it. 

We will provide yoga mats, blocks, straps, cushions. It’s not necessary to bring your own, as traveling with a yoga mat can be cumbersome, but sometimes the comfort of “our” mat is nice – especially for an entire month of practice and teaching.

You must have completed a Yoga Alliance approved 200 Hour Training to be eligible to enroll in this course. Note: It is not necessary that you are registered with Yoga Alliance.

You must be able to speak and read English at a conversational level.

  • You must be able to participate in a group learning experience, and be willing to accept and provide feedback in an objective and constructive way.
