Options for Self-Study

OPTIONS FOR SELF-STUDY

Allowing space for individual growth, Alchemy of Yoga offers two paths of study:

Option 1 includes above aspects of self-study culminating in formal certification through Yoga Alliance with 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) status. Expectations of students following this immersion-based path include:

  • Interest in studying all aspects of yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, history and theory, arising from a wish to deepen your practice and engage in self-study.
  • Commitment to attending training sessions and completing additional contact hours including asana classes, observations, assistant teaching, and practice teaching.
  • Participation in group activities and contribute to discussions.
  • Completion of all homework and Alchemy of Yoga Practicum
  • Support other students.

Option 2 includes Immersion for serious students looking to deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga asana, meditation, philosophy, and spirit who do not wish to pursue teaching yoga. As a self-study student, differences in your experience include:

  • You are not required to submit any homework although it is strongly advised that you complete the assigned readings in order to contribute to group discussions.
  • You will not be required to complete the practicum requirements.
  • You will not be graded or assessed in accordance with Yoga Alliance standards.
  • You will not beawarded a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teaching Certificate upon completion, however you will be given a certificate of program completion as a reference for future studies or trainings.

Post-Training Mentorship: Alchemy of Yoga understands that a 200-Hour Teacher Training Program is both a deep-dive into yoga + self-study and simultaneously just the beginning. We are thrilled to offer ongoing resources and mentorship, including but not limited to:

  • Planning a yoga career + business, how to best market yourself while maintaining strong ethical standards and life balance, and how to resolve ethical issues that arise from teaching yoga.
