Will I be able to teach after?
Yes! Our home studios, Yoga Deza Fayetteville and Be Love Bentonville, actively hire our graduates. The day you complete the program you are ready to teach. Yoga Alliance Certificates will be distributed upon 100% completion of contact hours, homework and assignments. These are recognized world-wide as the industry standard for entry-level teaching around the globe.
What happens if I miss a session or weekend?
If reasons beyond your control prevent you from attending, actively seek out make-up work, gather notes from peers and schedule hours to make-up your missed time. Students can request private instruction 1:1 with our staff to makeup time as well as attend sessions form other programs if necessary and appropriate. Private sessions run $75-$125/hr depending on faculty and content. If you know ahead of time that you will be late or missing a session, discuss ASAP with your program coordinator or email email@example.com. Please detail this in your application and proactively plan with our staff.
What if I start a program and cannot finish?
We will actively work with you to complete your certification. Life happens, and if you find you need to deter your training due to an emergency situation, students are welcome to apply funds toward a future training within two years.
How money much do Yoga teachers make?
Standard studio classes can vary based on student attendance. From gyms to studios, $15-$35 per hour is a common rate for new teachers. Self-starters who are able to promote themselves and build local relationships can make $75-$125hr leading workshops, working with private clients and small group classes outside of studios as well.
What if I can't afford it?
If you want to make this happen, it will. We encourage students to reach out and discuss alternative payment plans, research our scholarships and work trade programs and talk to their friends and family about offering support. We have seen students create Go Fund Me pages and raise money with friends and family through that. The world needs more Yoga teachers, especially in Northwest Arkansas, and if you are meant to be one of those teachers, it will happen.
