Throughout each module there will be mandatory quizzes and assignments to support your progress.  We will also offer weekly live Q&A sessions, weekly live group yoga classes, and weekly live study hall. The live sessions are scheduled over a 12 week period and reflect the order of the pre-recorded content as a resource to connect with your lecturers and fellow students in an interactive setting. Please note that these sessions will be recorded for participants who are not able to join in live time.  

Important to Note:  The Deepen Your Practice component accounts for 100 hours of study. The successful completion of this portion of the training does not qualify you to teach yoga until the subsequent component, Learn to Teach, is also completed.
