The Optimal State Yoga Teacher Training Program is offering a 200-hour teacher training program starting in October 2021. The style of yoga that we offer is called “Viniyoga”, which means adapting yoga practice to the individual and making sure the practice is appropriate for each student. Our program focuses on therapeutic yoga and yoga for mental health.
The start dates for this course are year round. You can start anytime you are ready. There are videos and homework to do each week, and weekly meetings online to help you get your questions answered. You are also welcome to request a mentor to work with you privately for an additional fee, if you feel you need more support.
Our course is offered 100% online, or in a hybrid format. We offer two weekends in person, if you desire to meet your colleagues in person. There are various sites around the US to meet in person for your practice teaching. However, if it is not possible for you to travel, we do have a 100% online option for you to complete your studies. If you choose the 100% online option, you will send us a video tape of your final teaching exam so that we can evaluate you and give you feedback. We strive to make this class flexible to meet the needs of your schedule, and yet have an online community that meets weekly with our core faculty.
You will have 1 year to complete the program. The course is self-paced and you can finish it in as little as 3 months, if that suits your needs. We can map out a schedule with you when you apply for the program. Email Krishna@TheOptimalState.com with any additional questions.
The cost of this program is $4000, inclusive of all learning materials. We are approved by the MyCAA program that allows military spouses to receive their yoga teacher training and have it paid for by MyCAA. The name of the program in the MyCAA data base is “Healing Yoga Foundation.”
