We recommend all graduates register with Yoga Alliance, a voluntary body which promotes standards for training and practice, allowing you to increase your credibility as a teacher. By maintaining your Yoga Alliance Accreditation and registration on an annual basis, you may use the RYT or RYS designation following your name and on your marketing materials and website.

General 200 Hour Program FAQs

Is this the initial training for someone wanting to become a Yoga Teacher?

Yes, this is the first program that all prospective teachers attend. There are opportunities for teachers to continue on with advanced programming thereafter.

When you complete our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program you will be certified to teach Hatha & Vinyasa Classes.  Specific programs such as Yin or Restorative are continuing education programs that you will take after this initial training if you choose to do so.

What if I am new to Yoga?

Everyone is new to Yoga each and every day. There is no perfection in Yoga, so everyone is welcome at the level they are at. In the program, we all start from the beginning, together!

When I leave the program, will I be able to teach public classes?

Absolutely! Our focus is you, the student, and the student becoming the teacher. Your teaching will be a direct reflection of our program and our intention is based on providing you with all the tools you need to succeed. We will have failed our students if we have provided them with anything less.

Do I need to be fluent in English?

We welcome students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. Due to the intensity of the program, we require all students to be fluent in the English language (reading, writing & speaking).

Is age an issue?

Yoga knows no age and it is never too late or too early to start. All students must be a minimum of 18 Years of age to take the program, but from there on everyone is welcome. If it is an inspiration, our oldest graduate (Khatun Dhamji, December 2012) was in her late 70’s!

Is this just for people wanting to teach Yoga?

Absolutely not! Anyone wishing to delve deeper into their practice is welcome to join us. The skills and tools we learn in the program can be applied to many aspects of life… Yoga does not just happen on the mat ~ it happens in every moment!

Do I automatically graduate if I attend?

No. In order to successfully graduate from any training program we offer, you must successfully meet the graduation criteria. Unfortunately, it serves no purpose for us to simply pass students who are not ready or able to teach yoga. It is unfair to you, to the public you may teach and to the integrity of our programming.

At the beginning of each program (during Orientation), the criteria will be clearly laid out as to the requirements for successful graduation.

No need to be anxious. All items on each evaluation will be covered in advance and our goal is to ensure you are prepared. Your success is our success!

What is an intensive immersion?

We want to ensure that students are prepared for the intensity of the program. It is hard work and hard play, but most importantly, it is a life changing experience. Your training days are devoted to helping you become the very best Yoga teacher you can be.

Why do I need to purchase my textbooks?

Students come from every corner of the globe.  The shipment of textbooks can be a large, logistical challenge. Therefore, we ask students to purchase the items directly; we do not charge students for texts in our fees.

All textbooks are to be purchased in English.

In the rare instance that a student is in an extremely remote geographical area and cannot receive a delivery, we will work with the student to ensure they have everything they need. This will be at a cost of $200 US Dollars.

Please DO NOT purchase any items, until you receive the official notice from our office, 6 weeks prior to the program start date.

Why do I see an “International Fee” on my Credit Card statement?

Some students will see a small charge on their Credit Card.

This charge is directly related to your Credit Card provider.  This charge is something which certain providers will issue when you pay for in a foreign currency (a currency other than what your Credit Card is in), or a foreign company processes a charge. Please contact your provider if you have any questions or concerns.

We are not able to amend this fee, nor do we ask the provider to charge it.

What is the policy on alcohol, smoking and drug use?

We ask that students do their best to refrain from alcohol and drug use during the program. Prescription medication is acceptable, assuming it is not being used recreationally.

Smoking is acceptable, but only in the designated areas.


Brighton Specific | 200 Hour FAQs

Are my accommodations, meals and airfare included?

No, this program is non~residential which means students are required to organize these items on their own.

Will I need to bring a yoga mat?

It is optional. The studio has mats and props available for everyone.

What can you suggest for accommodation options?

There is no shortage of accommodation for visitors to Brighton and they have something for every budget. If you are in need of accommodations, visit Brighton’s official site.
