Welcome to your Yoga Teacher Training Journey
Embarking on the journey to become a yoga teacher can be very exciting and somewhat challenging when deciding where to go. There are quite a few options, online, condensed programs, in studios, remote locations…only you can decide what is right for you. Hopefully you have already read our school mission and are looking for more information about our program and the requirements associated with our program.
Our program at The Yoga Loft is an 8 week program, designed to be completed in the studio. There will be additional outside assignments but the majority of the 200 hours will be with the lead instructor, Katy 200 hr e-RYT, click here to read her bio. As part of the program, you will have unlimited yoga at The Yoga Loft for free during your 8 week training, 40% off all workshops, 10% off any merchandise, in addition to networking with fellow instructors, and an opportunity to be part of this amazing community during the program.
Students must be committed to the program. Attendance and participation is the key to your development in addition to all homework assignments and any additional classroom work. We will also have some required reading material that you will need to purchase prior to the program starting. We require a $150 non-refundable deposit that will be placed towards the overall price of the program. Click here to learn more about the cost of the program. We also strongly recommend that you have at least one year of practicing yoga. Our teacher training is specifically to develop you into a teacher.

100% attendance is required. Students are expected to be on time, present and prepared. Any potential missed hours must be communicated prior to absence and completed before graduation. Missed hours can be completed in the form of specified workshops, or if an instructor is required to spend time with the student to cover missed information, a fee of $75/hour applies.
What to Bring
Each time we meet, you are required to bring your yoga mat, teacher training manual, journal, pens, water, extra clothes and plenty of snacks in addition to any other material you would like to bring as part of your training. These are the required materials you will need each time we meet.
What to Expect
The goal of our 200 hour teacher training program is to prepare you to be able to teach a yoga class and be able to provide modifications for any student. Coming with an open mind and be ready to learn is key. The program has a mixture of lecture, movement, class discussion, class participation, and always opportunities to ask questions. This is YOUR time to LEARN! Take advantage of your training by coming prepared, ready to ask questions and participate. In addition, giving and receiving feedback is part of this training.
