FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Can you tell me a little bit about the faculty?
A: De La Sol is so incredibly proud of - and inspired by - our amazing TT faculty! Katie has been a full time yoga teacher for over 20 years and her mother, Sue, a practicing yogi for over 50 years and was the co founder of The Yoga Centre of Burlington.
Steve brings extensive, cutting-edge anatomy and movement knowledge to the course - not to mention a hilarious sense of humour!
Scott is a faculty member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic and an internationally recognized expert in the field of yoga philosophy. He does an incredible job of allowing yoga philosophy to shine vibrantly with relevance and practicality to the modern day yoga practitioner and teacher.
Included in the course are segments with some of your beloved De La Sol teachers - Nancy, Martha, Erin and Charlene who are all masters in their particular fields such as yoga therapy, tantra, meditation, personal growth, the 'business' side of yoga and more!
Q: What does an average weekend look like?
A: Some weekends you will have a mix of topics covered with multiple faculty members and other weekends will be spent solely with one teacher. Each weekend is a balanced combination of physical work and discussion/lecturing.
Q: Does it make sense to take this course if I just love yoga but don't really plan on teaching?
A: Yes! This course is a perfect combination of diving deep into the practice of yoga and learning how to communicate your passion and make it a vocation if you so choose. Personal development is in integral part of the course.
Q: Are yoga classes included in the cost of the training?
A: Yes, you have access to unlimited classes at all three locations from the start date of the course until graduation day! The only exception is the morning Mysore program - this is $40 a month if you wish to join it.
Q: Is there a lot of extra work required outside of class hours?
A: The majority of the work will take place during the TT weekends. 10 hours of the training are active hands-on assisting of existing DLS classes, which take place outside of the weekend training hours. We also require that you take at least two yoga classes a week. If you live further away, you can do a class Sat and Sun morning and then stay for TT. We also have a karma yoga project which involves 5 hours of volunteer work - taking the principles of yoga off the mat and into the world. We help you choose your volunteer task. You then write a paper of 500 words on your experience of giving selflessly. Lastly, there will be an anatomy test at the end of your segment with Steve.
Q: Is the course Yoga Alliance recognized?
A: We offer the highest level of education and accreditation recognized by the Canadian and American Yoga Alliances and are always up to date with any new regulations or alliances that will help you put your best foot forward as a graduate. instructor.
Q: What happens if I have to miss a session?
A: There are ways to make up missed sessions: The first is to book a private session with the teacher whose segment you missed. This is at an extra cost to you, at $80 an hour. Generally, if a 3 or 4 hours segment is missed, it takes an hour to make up. If a whole day is missed, it takes about 2 hours to make up. If another YTT missed the same segment, you can split the cost and do the make up session together. Another option is to jump in on the same segment with the next group of trainees, at no extra cost. Sometimes recording the session is a possibility. We have even had registrants Skype in while they are away!
Q: What if I have to miss two full weekends?
A: If you know you are going to miss this much of the course, we recommend you hold off and register for the course at a later date.
Q: What are my payment options?
A: If you pay in full between today and the beginning of the course, the cost is $3100. If you pay in full after the start date of the course or choose our payment instalment plan, the cost is $3400.
The payment plan option is available to all students registering for the program.
Payments will be divided into 6 payments with the initial non-refundable deposit of $500+HST and $580+HST after which will be automatically charged to your credit card once a month.
